‘90s Shoulder Bags
‘90s style is a real trend right now. It showed up around the beginning of the year with belt bags and bike shorts but now we’re really getting into it with shoulder bags being the biggest selling trend of the season for fall. We did a blog in June all about how to nail the ‘90s trend so if you’d like to read more about this look, check that out!
The key to this trend is the size. The smaller the better and the more baguette-shaped the better too. The strap should be fairly short and the bag should fall to just above the hip when worn over your shoulder. Think true Kate Moss-inspired ‘90s style.
This is the sort of trend that promises to come round time and time again so it could be a great shape to invest in if you’re thinking about springing for your first designer handbag purchase. However, the high street do continue to nail this look.
Here are some of our current faves on Shop It To Me at a range of different price points.
Utility Pants Put Up a Fight Against Jeans
Live in jeans and can’t imagine ever changing it up? This fall, you might just be convinced to try something new. They’re just as comfy as jeans (maybe even more) and they’re ultra-versatile. You can wear them with sneakers or slides or dress them all the way up with your strappiest of heels. Yes, that’s right we’re talking about the utility pant.
We’re seeing utility pants in black, beige, khaki and even brighter hues all over Instagram and we have to say, this might just be one of our fave Insta trends ever. These pants are SUPER flattering to all body types so if you’re really curvy it cinches your waist and skims your thighs and if you’re super skinny it gives you a little extra curve at the waist and hip because of the shape. It’s all about the pocket details and the silhouette when it comes to this trend so go for high-waists, as many pockets as you can manage and an elasticated, drawn-in cuff at the ankle for the perfect styling.
Dress these up or wear them casually, but whatever you do consider switching out your go-to jeans for this growing Insta trend.
Extra AF Hair Clips
Hair clips have been getting bigger and shiner over the summer and for fall, they’re getting even more extra. Think pearls, jewels, color and stack them up with as many as you can fit. This Insta trend is all about creating an extra look from your hair slides and creating a gorgeous going out look without much hassle at all. Wear with both straight or curly hair or even add to a simple low ponytail for a lot of extra sass.
Consider hair clips now an important part of your jewelry collection if you’re aiming to get a similar look to those shining most brightly on Instagram right now.
We LOVE these styles.
Tailoring is a key look for fall from the runways but the way our fave Instagram girlies are styling their tailoring is with a big, super sassy waist belt to cinch in that waist. Whether it’s built into the jacket or blazer dress or you decide to add your own leather or chain belt, this Instagram trend is all about creating wide shoulders with an oversized jacket and pulling the waist right in to create a seriously ‘90s-inspired silhouette.
Consider the blazers you already have and maybe simply invest in the perfect belt to cinch your waist or opt for the full look and style with either skinny jeans, leather pants or bare legs and chunky ankle boots.

We talked in our tie-dye for fall and winter blog all about how huge this print is for the season ahead. BUT it’s biggest fans? The Instagram crowd.
These style lovers are obsessed with tie-dye and they’re doing it with graphic tees, oversized sweatshirts and even denim this season. Whether you like hippy-style ‘70s tie-dye or a more mature palette, do it in your own way for fall.
Imagine a bag so small there is no way you could even get your phone in there. Ok, this is the trend. We’ve talked about mini bags in the past but this fall, the smallest and tiniest micro bags are the biggest thing on Instagram and we are LOVING them. Yes, they’re not practical in any which way but hello…. Fashion.
Whether you’re into croc and snake, classic leather or bright pops of neon, the smaller the bag the better for fall. You’re wearing this as an outfit accessory here not a practical and usable piece of luggage.
Top Tip – Don’t fill your BFF in on the trend and fill up her bag with all your essentials!!
Square-Toe Strappy Sandals
Square toe shoes have been marked early as the key shoe look for fall and winter. Blowing up on Instagram right now, there isn’t an account that we love and follow that isn’t showing off this angular toe shape as their fave new shoe so it’s something we just had to include. The key to getting this look just right for an Insta-inspired look is to choose strappy shoes (yes, even for fall) and a smaller heel. Kitten or mid-heels work perfectly and the fewer straps the better too.
From Jeffrey Campbell to some of the biggest high-end designer names, this shoe is a key addition for any Insta-ready stylish closet this season.
If you’re on the hunt for one of the girliest accessories for the season, jump on the padded headband trend. Fashionistas all over Instagram are obsessed with this headgear and it could well be the perfect addition to your accessories wardrobe as we head into the festive season this winter.
Think luxurious velvet fabrics, statement prints and added knot details to make them even more glam. Pair this look with a minimal makeup vibe and you’ll be Insta-ready in an instant.
