We were curious to see how the gender-punk vibes of the fashion month would impact the fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends. You would think that in a season that was decidedly unfeminine the jewelry offerings would be slim, but we’re happy to report that this wasn’t the case for the fall 2019 jewelry trends! Designers found a way to combine opulent jewelry and cheeky accessories with dark and edgy, minimalist, or gender-neutral runways.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory/ Jewelry Trends

On the grunge side of things there were lots of cool offerings: punk chokers and non-jewelry objects used as accessories. Most of all, though, there were chains just about everywhere.

There were tons of different kinds of chain necklaces, as well as chains used for body jewelry and designer belts. While most chains had a darker, more industrial vibe, there were also some super glamorous takes on chains, with smooth chunky necklaces and chokers in particular feeling quite luxurious.

There was definitely no lack of glamour, with rhinestones and pearls used in all manner of ways, even on the fall 2019 nails. Impossibly long earrings, big matching sets of jewelry, and all manner of accessories dripping with rhinestones or colorful gemstones are only a few examples.

As far as the fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends were concerned, waist cinching belts had a strong comeback this season, as part of an overall cinched waist and broad shoulders silhouette that dominated the fall 2019 fashion trends. Chain belts also made an appearance, complementing all of the chain necklaces. Some accessories, especially socks and scarves, fit into a category we’re dubbing “cozy chic”, which is exactly what we all need in time for winter.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends

#1. Earrings Long AF

It’s as though the fall 2019 jewelry trends lead to a competition to see who could make the longest pair of earrings, and there were some great entries. From Prabal Gurung, a chain of pearly hoops made for gorgeous earrings. The earrings ended in pearl-covered tassels at the bottom, and were long enough to nearly reach the elbow!

While most earrings at Louis Vuitton weren’t extreme, the big exceptions were a few shoulder-dusting mock feather earrings. These unique creations were only worn on one ear, and were constructed of a long silver length, at the end of which a large feather-like pendant was made out of what appeared to be plastic.

Long earrings were kept extra unique at Loewe – they were made of leather straps with a buckle at the top, looking like belts. Lastly, the longest of all was a single rhinestone-covered dangly earring in the Esteban Cortazar lookbook that hung down all the way to the knee!

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Extra-Long Earrings

#2. Delicate Danglies

Extra-long earrings can be fun, but for most of us a pair of delicately dangly earrings might be more practical. Long (but not overly so) earrings made of shimmery strings or drops of metal are timelessly gorgeous, and are able to work with both daytime looks and evening wear.

These long, dangling earrings were the perfect fit for the pretty collection of evening wear at Cushnie. Made of silver with just a small lightning shape at the top, they were as pretty as can be. Silver was also the color of choice at Lemaire, where simple but beautiful dangly earrings were shaped like long drops.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Long Dangling Earrings

#3. Ear Armor

The fiercest of the earring-related fall 2019 jewelry trends is probably the ear armor. This refers to earrings or cuffs that cover the bulk of the ear helix, looking like an especially glamorous armor.

Each pair of earrings on the Prabal Gurung runway was longer and bigger than the previous one, so ear armor absolutely fit in. Threaded with pearls with a few dangling beaded chains, these ear cuffs were colorful and fun.

Gold, wing-shaped earrings were tilted up, with a small cuff to wrap around the ears at Lanvin, giving us a semi-armor for the lobe and bottom half of the ear. The most extreme take on ear armor was presented at Gucci, where gold pieces molded to look like ears were fit over the ears of the models – we can hardly imagine a more conceptual object.

#4. Single Earring

Symmetry was not necessary or recommended this fashion month. Wearing only one earring was one of the ways to eschew symmetry in the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. Wearing one earring is also a great way of rocking something beautiful and blingy in a non-gendered, and if we may add, it’ll make you feel a little pirate-y, too.

Tory Burch proved that a single earring could be ultra-feminine, with models wearing elongated earrings covered in gems only on one ear. There was all manner of earrings on display at 3.1 Phillip Lim, but our best example of a model only wearing one earring was actually also a longer one threaded with gems.

Even at Prabal Gurung a few of the models only wore a single shoulder-dusting earring, with one ear left bare.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Single Earring

#5. Tassels

Tassels are a fun way of adding a slightly bohemian vibe to any look, especially when they decorate the head one each side in the form of earrings. We saw tasseled jewelry show up on runways with all kinds of different styles, showing that they can actually be quite versatile.

Beaded tassels at Saint Laurent jazzed up an overall darker-toned runway. In gold and yellow, tassels were the perfect ornamentation on long necklaces and dangle earrings. Tasseled earrings at Lanvin added fun pops of color to the few black and white outfits on the runway.

The most unique tassel earrings we spotted were on the Stella McCartney runway – the shoulder-dusting tassels were made of chains of paper clips that were linked together, likely representing how important reusing and upcycling is for the designer herself.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Tassel Jewelry

#6. Dripping with Rhinestones

Is there anything more glamorous than a cascade of rhinestones along the wrist, décolletage, or side of the neck? Rhinestone-studded jewels made for some of the most luxurious and striking fall 2019 runway accessories.

At Christian Siriano, a thick choker was absolutely covered in shiny rhinestones, with another rhinestone-covered strap hanging down below to draw attention to a low neckline.

At both Paco Rabanne and Loewe, models wore large earrings with a rhinestone-covered fringe lining the bottom of the main embellishment. Christopher Kane, Brandon Maxwell, and Esteban Cortazar had some of the other runways replete with rhinestones.

#7. Boho-Chic Accessories

The fall/ winter 2019 jewelry trends have, by and large, shifted away from the hippie stylings of the previous season, even if designers are embracing a much more eco-conscious mentality. This is why, perhaps, the few bohemian offerings stand out to us so much.

Stella McCartney gets points for jewelry that was bright and fun, but also sustainable. We’ve already mentioned upcycled paper clip earrings, but we also loved necklaces decorated with colorful rubber bands, and hoop earrings with colorful leftover yarn twisted around them for a softer texture.

At Lanvin, jewelry fit the aesthetic; there were the previously mentioned colorful tassel earrings, as well as medallion earrings set in a colorful base that could have been taken straight out of a North African bazaar. The boho-vibe at Ann Demeulemeester also included some Americana, with long feather necklaces, and multiple though delicate chains.

Lastly, at Jacquemus, we saw super boho-chic wood and net earrings in a square shape that hung as low as the shoulders.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Boho-Chic Jewelry

#8. Mismatched Earrings

Having models wear a different earring on each ear is a great way of cementing the asymmetrical fall 2019 jewelry trends, but it can also be a great way of showcasing as much jewelry as possible, and to tell a story with a pair of earrings.

The mismatched earrings at Carolina Herrera certainly matched in aesthetic. Both earrings were golden and embellished with large ball-shaped beads, though on one side the beads were threaded through hoops and on the other through two pins. It was all about the gold at Zimmermann as well, as models wore mismatched thick hoops or chain-link earrings.

When models did wear two earrings at 3.1 Phillip Lim, there was no rhyme or reason – a shorter, gold and silver earring made of two u-shapes on one side, and a long, dangly beaded silver earring on the other. Other runways where models wore mismatched earrings included Givenchy, Adeam, Tory Burch, and Hellessy.

#9. Hoops

It’s always exciting to see what kind of new takes on hoop earrings we will see every season. For the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends hoop earrings were anything but simple and delicate.

The variety of hoops at Ulla Johnson was quite extensive, though the reigning metal color was undoubtedly gold. From latch back earrings with multiple hoops to quite a few hoop earrings decorated with dangly beads or a golden fringe, it was hard to miss the loud, boho-chic earrings.

We saw a punk take on hoop earrings at Gypsy Sport, where spikes were threaded through the hoops for an extra edge. Hoop earrings at Area were as embellished as could be. A few pairs of beaded hoops were filled on the inside with beaded netting, reminding us of dreamcatchers.

Models at Jonathan Simkhai wore thick silver hoop earrings – sometimes even two in each ear!

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Hoop Earrings

#10. Badass Chokers

Studs, metal, and black leather are a few of the elements you can expect out of the badass chokers that cropped up in the fall 2019 runway jewelry. Unsurprisingly, these chokers showed up on runways that already had a punk or grunge vibe, where they perfectly completed an edgy ensemble.

The collection at Alexander McQueen was as punk as can be, with combat boots and chains everywhere. Chokers fit in easily, with most models wearing dark metal chokers with some subtle detailing.

Chokers also fit in well with the S&M vibes of the Alexandra Rich collection, in which a variety of leather chokers was presented – something with more typical fetish elements like hoops for a chain, and others more romantic with crystal-covered pendants or pearls hanging from them.

Of course, the choker trend wouldn’t be complete without some spikey options, which showed up on the wacky runways of Marques’Almeida and Gucci. The Marques’Almeida chokers were quite pretty, made of gold leather with gold-covered spikes, while at Gucci the chokers were more intense. They were quite wide, covering the whole length of the neck, and were densely covered with long, dangerous-looking spikes.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Punk Chokers

#11. Shiny Chokers

While all the dark and spiky chokers were quite badass, there was also room in the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends for bejeweled chokers to fit the aesthetic of those who are less dark or edgy.

From Versace, for example, we saw both ultra-shiny golden chokers studded with jewels, and more understated golden chokers either made of a small chain with a gold V pendant, or made of geometric rectangular links. Chokes at Halpern were on the thicker side, covering the bulk of the neck, and featuring rows upon rows of large, square jewels.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Bejeweled Chokers

#12. Go Logo

You can always trust that a few designers will want to showcase their label, because what’s the point of wearing designer jewelry if people don’t know? It was all about the B-pendants at Balenciaga, which were large and attention-grabbing as they hung off of chunky silver chain necklaces.

The branded jewelry was part of a really cheeky series of accessories at Moschino that celebrated consumerism and capitalism. The Moschino logo showed up on all kinds of jewelry items, right next to dollar signs and other markers of wealth.

Lastly, there’s Chanel, a brand that is big on logos because they know exactly that’s what their audience demands. From CC earrings to neckerchiefs with “CHANEL” spelled out in little jewels, we can’t think of a more logo-heavy runway.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Logo Jewelry

#13. Colorful Gemstones

For the fall/ winter 2019 jewelry trends we saw oversized, nearly overwhelming pieces studded with colorful gems. Colorful gemstones might feel like the stuff of costume jewelry, but if all the world is a stage, then why not rock them?

One of the most extreme and showiest runways this season was Moschino, where Jeremy Scott went with a “more is more” mentality. Models wore oversized gold chain necklaces that were embellished with massive gems in all colors of the rainbow.

The colorful jewelry at Dolce & Gabbana was quite restrained (by Dolce & Gabbana standards, at least), with only one color of massive gemstone used per set of necklace and earrings. Some models wore jewels with blue gemstones, while others wore green.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Colorful Gemstones

#14. Safety Pins

If you never had a friend in high school that liked to attach safety pins to their bracelets or stick them in their ears instead of earrings, then you had a super boring upbringing. There is nothing more punk than rocking safety pins instead of traditional jewelry, and since this season was as punk as can be, this was one of the fall 2019 jewelry trends.

Miuccia Prada presented a darker collection than usual that for the most part was low on jewelry, although a large safety pin brooch over the heart made for an interesting symbol. We’ve already mentioned how punk the Alexander McQueen and R13 runways were this year, so safety pins hanging from multi-chain necklaces were no surprise on either runway.

Donatella Versace also presented an extra grunge collection (although in a neon-colored palette to fit with the signature Versace style), with oversized safety pin brooches that were actually glammed up a bit with the addition of jewels.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Safety Pin Jewelry

#15. Other Object Jewelry

In addition to safety pins, designers took inspiration from other non-jewelry items to craft unique creations that weren’t necessarily punk or grunge. On the cuter side of things, we have Balenciaga repping Paris, with miniature Eiffel Towers and Arcs de Triomphe decorating rings and earrings.

There were lots of super cool earrings at Jacquemus, with some of the coolest being a series of folded handkerchiefs hanging from metal clips attached to ball-stud earrings.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Object-Influenced Jewelry

#16. Wild Multi-Chain Necklaces

We saw all manner of chains show up as part of the fall 2019 accessory trends, but one of our favorites was the way that different stylists layered different kinds of chains together to create a chunky look that was a little wild.

At Marni, chains in silver and gold were mixed together into one look, with each necklace or choker being a chain with differently shaped and sized chain links for a truly textured effect.

For the grungy R13 runway models were styled with layers upon layers of chains. Some of the chain necklaces were adorned with different charms, while in some cases they were joined by long ropes of pearls, leading to a wild look.

The multi-chain look at Chanel was a little more elegant, with a single necklace being comprised of different chains and ornamented at the ends with large hanging gems. Other runways where models were styled with multi-chain jewelry included Marine Serre, Nicole Miller, Alexander McQueen, and more.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Multi-Chain Necklaces

#17. Twisted Jewelry

There was a modern art vibe to some of the fall 2019 jewelry we saw on the runways this season, which were made of metal that was worked and twisted into fluid shapes.

Both at Acne Studios and House of Holland, we saw hoop earrings made of a thicker metal that looked as though they had been twisted and shaped away from their round shape into something more artistic.

Pearl-studded earrings at Peter Pilotto looked as though they were made of multiple loops that had been twisted around each other to make for a bulky, knotted design. There was also a knotted effect on jewelry at Roksanda, which looked as though long gold bars had been twisted in all kinds of different knotted and zig-zag shapes.

#18. Dramatic Brooches

Big, shiny, and just a little retro, brooches were one of the most fun of the fall 2019 jewelry trends. In our minds, brooches are a somewhat dated accessory, but all that is old becomes new again, and brooches do feel like they fit in with the cozy, grandmotherly aesthetic that some designers revelled in this season.

Oversized, colorful brooches at Toga gave a splash of color and glam to oversized, minimalist outfits, and helped to soften a very masculine collection. Cozy chic was certainly the vibe at J.W. Anderson, where a large, rhinestone-covered brooch gave a clam touch to a striped, layered outfit.

The most extreme was the first look at R13, where the lapels of an oversized plaid blazer were totally covered in a mixture of shiny brooches.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Brooches

#19. Industrial Chain Necklaces

There is no better way to emulate ‘90s era grunge than by using industrial materials as jewelry. Heavy-duty chains were worn as necklaces on multiple runways, making for one of the more hardcore fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends, and also one of the jewelry trends that will be easiest to mimic at home on the cheap.

A bike-chain style choker at Alyx looked extra tough, particularly because of a bulky lock sitting right at the base of the neck. At Tod’s, a thick wallet-chain with a black leather detail was worn around models’ necks, giving an industrial edge to cozier outfits. Thick metal chains were also paired with cozy sweaters at Anrealage, although the shininess of the metal made for a slightly more luxurious piece.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Industrial Chain Links

#20. Big Luxury Chain Links

As much as we liked the industrial chains of the fall 2019 jewelry trends, we also appreciated the elegance that large, more ornamental chain links could have. Jewelry designers crafted necklaces and earrings out of oversized chain links in precious metals, with flowy designs that were glamourous rather than grunge.

Oversized silver earrings made of large, twisted chain links provided nice match to a silver dress at Alberta Ferretti. We also enjoyed the mixing of gold and silver chain links in a part of earrings at Mulberry.

It wasn’t all about earrings, with oversized chain links also showing up on a golden necklace with a red heart pendant at Oscar de la Renta, and on chunky golden chokers at J.W. Anderson.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Big Chain Links

#21. Pearls

Pearls are as delicate and feminine as can be, and the copious use of them stood out as one of the more traditional fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. Unsurprisingly, pearls were most popular in the more bourgeois collections of the big Parisian fashion houses.

At Dior, to complement a mature yet romantic collection, simple pearl necklaces that sat tightly around the bottom of the neck were lightly embellished with some rhinestone appliqués. Pearls were as subtle as can be at Celine, where they were used in lovely little stud earrings that went perfectly with the understated bourgeois collection.

In contrast, there was absolutely no subtlety about the use of pearls at Chanel. The precious little spheres totally covered ornate chokers and large hanging earrings. We also saw pearls distributed through the runways of Givenchy, Emilia Wickstead, Adeam, Dolce & Gabbana, Simone Rocha, where we also saw pearl hair accessories for fall 2019, and many others.

#22. Opulent Matching Sets

It’s been a while since anyone really thought about matching their necklace to their earrings beyond, maybe, trying to match gold with gold and silver with silver. Beyond that, it’s been everything goes.

However, for the fall 2019 jewelry trends matching sets are back, specifically with really large pieces. After all, all those massive pieces models wore both in ears and around the neck were so conspicuous that a mismatch would have been too noticeable.

At both Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana, an attitude of more is more meant that opulent crystal studded necklaces matched equally blingy low-hanging chandelier earrings. The matching sets at Paco Rabanne were all about strips of rhinestones that were nearly as opulent.

The jewelry at Matty Bovan was based on legendary creatures, with a large, bejeweled wolf necklace and earring set giving us medieval vibes.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Matching Jewelry Sets

#23. Jeweled Bib

It’s hard to think of a bib as something glamorous, although if it’s just a way of describing a jeweled necklace that covers the décolletage, then perhaps we can get you on board. These necklaces are perfect for pairing with dresses with low-necklines, although they can also work under a blazer. This season was all about pairing casual wear with opulent jewels, so give it a try!

As part of a darker vibe at Alexander Wang models wore a truly unique necklace. The part wrapped around the neck was made of leather, while below it was a triangle-shaped net studded with silver hoops. Along the perimeter of that netted bib part was a row of silver and black embellishment.

The take on the jeweled bib at Chanel was as ladylike as possible, with a pearl necklace made with multiple ropes of pearls constructed together in a sort of netted effect. At Area, loops of rhinestones lining multiple rows of rhinestone-covered necklaces came together to make the most glamorous bib necklace.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Bejeweled Bib

#24. Chunky Bracelets

We think chunky bracelets are the most interesting of the bracelet-related fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends. They’re as ostentatious as the other jewelry pieces we saw on the runways, but they’re less high glam and a bit more accessible, since they are made of resin or acetate rather than expensive metals and gems.

The metallic chunky bracelets at Chloe came in a variety of colors, from metallic-blue cuffs to a shifting gold to copper tone. The bracelets were beautiful, and worn on each wrist they reminded us of the original Wonder Woman cuffs.

At Ulla Johnson, acetate bracelets of different widths were layered one on top of the other, giving a bohemian effect. The bracelets were in warm, autumnal tones, from beige to amber to dark brown, and were layered with flowy outfits.

Chunky bracelets at Dries Van Noten were particularly futuristic, looking like some sort of utilitarian sci-fi jewelry. Made of clear resin, they were wide with a central piece that stuck out like a disk.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Jewelry Trends: Chunky Bracelets

#25. Body Jewelry

In the previous season we could have reasoned that body jewelry would work well with swimsuits, but for the fall/ winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends body jewelry is instead meant to be worn under clothes, for that secret sexy feel, or over clothes to add a touch of glam.

A netted vest made of bauble-studded chains at Marni was a punk evening wear item, that we could imagine looking gorgeous worn over simple slip dresses. We’ve already mentioned the BDSM-inspired Alexandra Rich collection, which included lots of really gorgeous body chains that were actually presented over clothes – that being said, that’s now how we think the designer’s fans will wear them.

Perhaps the most extreme was a jewelry as poncho piece at Molly Goddard, which nicely blurred the lines between garment and jewelry. The same effect came up with a unique creation at Christopher Kane – a rhinestone-studded garment that draped over the shoulders, covering the décolleté, and then hanging down to the arms where it was attached to leather cuffs wrapped around the arm just above the elbow.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends

#26. Masks

There were some spooky elements in the fall 2019 accessory trends. These were styling choices that we doubt will make it to designers’ shops or to the streets, but the high fashion sorts will surely embrace them for photoshoots and special events. These are not the pretty Dior couture masks from spring – quite the opposite.

Let’s start with the striking masks that covered the faces of models at Marine Serre. Made of a tight fabric, they only exposed the eyes and mouth in a style that we can only describe as “luchador tries BDSM.” There were also gas masks that only covered the lower portion of the face, and were decorated with a trending plaid print.

The models at Richard Quinn were not quite as lucky, as their faces were totally obscured with masks made of a fabric that matched that of the voluminous dresses they wore.

Lastly, we have the spike-covered masks at Gucci. These masks were made of shiny plastic, and only obscured the top half of the face. Spiked like punk Phantom of the Opera masks, they gave the show viewers an uneasy feel.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Face Masks

#27. Glittery Tights

One of the most seductive fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends is glittery tights. No matter where the shine comes from, it is undeniable that a pair of legs covered in shimmer is as sexy as it gets. Wearing a blinged-out pair of hose on a night out will keep you warm and get you noticed!

Tights created by Anna Sui for autumn were as playful as can be, in bright, punchy colors. The sexiest pair, however, was made of shiny gold that shimmered on the runway. We would probably style them with an LBD rather than an even glitterier copper dress, but that wouldn’t be the Anna Sui way.

We enjoyed that added shimmer on red fishnets at Halpern, while sheer brown tights at Kate Spade had a subtler glimmer that was only apparent when the caught the light – a perfect choice for slightly more glamorous day wear.

Lastly, at Marc Jacobs, shorter evening dresses were complemented with an additional touch of shimmer from ribbed pantyhose.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Glitter Tights

#28. Colorful Tights

Unless you’re particularly brave or particularly stupid, chances are you’re not going to go out bare legged in sub-zero weather. However, with so many beautiful dresses on display on the runways, the only way to get around the issue is by wearing a solid pair of tights. If that’s the case, why not opt for statement tights? Beyond glittery tights, colorful tights were also part of the fall/ winter 2019 accessory trends!

Blue, red, pink, and yellow tights at Rodarte were as vibrant as can be, and particularly excellent if you’re a fan of color blocking. You can also take a cue from the runway and use them in a monochromatic outfit.

At Dolce & Gabbana, pink and yellow pantyhose were a little sheerer, while animal print or floral print tights were as opaque and attention-grabbing as can be. Bright purple tights were matched to purple pumps at Sally Lapointe, while mint tights were matched to light green pumps, and red tights were matched to – you guessed it – red pumps.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Colorful Tights

#29. Thick Belts

The waists on the runways this season were as cinched and snatched as can be, and that’s all thanks to thick belts being one of the key fall 2019 runway accessories. Much like corsets, belts just pull everything in and give a perfect shapely figure, especially if one is wearing it over one of the oversized blazers that were so popular this season.

Black belts with an oversized buckle and holes were key to cinching in massive feathery dresses, oversized sweaters, and even trench coats on the J.W. Anderson runway, proving that they could work for any occasion.

Extra thick wrap leather belts at Dior were combined with full skirts for a classic silhouette, but they were also worn over high waisted trousers and more significantly over blazers, thereby cementing that the “belt over blazer” will be the new go-to style for professional women everywhere.

Other large waist-cinching belts that caught our attention included the fancy dark blue ones at Armani and the black ones at Saint Laurent, both of which seemed perfectly polished for an evening out.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Thick Belts

#30. Cozy Scarves

Scarves that’ll keep your neck warm are a winter-season must, so it was nice that there were some high-fashion scarf offerings as part of the fall 2019 runway accessories. It’s not just a question of what kind of cozy scarves we saw on the runway, but also a question how they’ll be styled in the coming cold months.

Cozy wool scarves at Molly Goddard were wrapped very completely and tightly around the neck, so they ended up looking like bulky collars. In some instances, part of the scarf was also wrapped over the head to protect the ears and save the need for a hat (but you still want to check out the fall 2019 hat trends).

Scarves were also carefully tied close to the neck at Dries Van Noten, although those scarves were made of a puffy material so they appeared even bulkier. On the Jonathan Simkhai runway, scarves contributed to monochrome looks, where knitted scarves were color-matched to knitted monochromatic outfits in shades like merlot and tan.

If all this talk of warm wool scarves is leaving you cold, perhaps you’d prefer the massive fur scarves casually draped around the necks of models at Versace. These scarves are definitely warm and cozy, but they’re also as glamorous as can be.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Cozy Scarves

#31. Ribbon-Tied Silk Scarves

For the fall 2019 accessory trends, you have a delicate scarf option that will keep your neck lightly protected from wind, and will get you feeling a little extra feminine. Light scarves made of silk were tied in delicate ribbons around the neck, as a fun accessory in a few of the collections.

The delicate neck scarves at Miu Miu, especially paired as they often were with capes, gave a girlish “little red riding hood” vibe to the collection, which deepened the contrast with army-inspired designs and prints. Printed silk scarves at Etro, tied in a ribbon around the neck, worked really well with the overall autumn traveler aesthetic of the runway.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Ribbon-Tied Silk Scarves

#32. Fitted Gloves

While a bulky glove might be warmer, it’s not fashion… at least not according to the fall/ winter 2019 accessory trends. This season designers presented fitted gloves that looked elegant and made the hands appear as feminine as can be.

If your preference is for color, the gloves at Emilia Wickstead certainly gave a pop of that. Crocheted blue gloves gave a touch of color to an all-brown ensemble, while more colorful ensembles were balanced with long gloves in either white or brown. The gloves at Ann Demeulemeester were also quite long, reaching just past the elbow, in colors like red, black, and blue.

Clever fitted gloves at Acne Studios were crafted out of leather in earth tones. The middle finger was left fingerless for those moments when flipping someone the bird becomes particularly necessary.

Black leather gloves at Dries van Noten were a pretty safe choice, but what we really loved were the more daring shiny silver gloves that a model in a large fur coat wore.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Fitted Gloves

#33. Metal Belts

Metal and chains were all over the place for the fall 2019 accessory trends, and the waist was not neglected. There were plenty of metal and chain belts for folks to choose from, with most of them featuring multiple layers of chain like one of the fall 2019 jewelry trends.

The bulky, dark chain look was plentiful at Alexander McQueen, where it was also combined with purses in a few instances. Belts comprised of multiples chains at Marni were less bulky, since they were made of delicate silver. For those who prefer gold, there were golden chain belts studded with pendants at Marine Serre that we could imagine styled in many different ways.

The most unique construction was that of the belt in the first look at the Gabriela Hearst show. The belt was made of three rows of golden coins, which led to a gorgeous waist-cinching belt.

Fall/ Winter 2019-2020 Accessory Trends: Metallic Chain Belts

#34. Visible Socks

Socks in and of themselves cannot be a trend, since they’re staples, but wearing visible socks with open heels or flats? That’s a totally new way of styling things, and deserves a mention as part of the fall/ winter 2019-2020 accessory trends.

Semi-transparent black socks at Dior were paired with plaid, pointed-toe kitten heels and a flowy skirt, showing a variation on the trend that could work in an office setting. Channeling the cozy-chic motif of autumn, some models at Molly Goddard wore heavy, colorful striped socks with clogs, for a look that felt wonderfully homey.

Visible socks were paired with flats at Dolce & Gabbana, in a way that seemed slightly inspired by menswear. In most instances both shoes and socks were black, but one memorable pair of socks was covered in a shiny floral print and worn with a pair of equally loud loafers.
