It might not be beach season everywhere just yet, but it's clear that all things sea-inspired are having a moment. Of course, we're not referring to the (thankfully) now-dead holographic mermaid trend that once took the festival scene by storm, or the nautical references we see resurface on the runways every couple of seasons. No, 2019's sand and sea influences are all about channeling your best inner-sea-goddess self with seashells, starfish, and more.
This trend first emerged during the latter half of 2018 with mini conch shell-embellished hair clips and dainty cowry earrings with a very DIY feel. However, it's since evolved for Spring 2019. We're now seeing everything from scallop-shaped handbags and puka shell-bedazzled slides to starfish-printed skirts.
For those of us not able to comb the shores for seashells and other sandy finds of our own, we rounded up the 21 must-have items to embody this trend all spring and summer long.
