Fall’s Essential Accessory Trends

Here are the accessories trends you need for the new season!

Accessories can make or break a look. Whether it’s a simple little black dress on date night or a casual jeans and nice top for lunch with the girls, your accessories give any outfit a seasonal update that keeps it modern, chic and cool. This fall, accessories are EXTRA. And by that, we mean extra special. We’re seeing textures, statement colors, and prints and quirky add-ons that make showing off your own unique sense of style easier than ever.

These are some of the biggest but more unusual accessories trends we’re seeing come through for fall right now that you might not have heard of yet and we’ve picked them all from our partner brands at Shop It To Me.

Girly Headgear

This year, super-girly accessories seem to be taking the win. Whether that means cutesy bows and ribbons for your hair or dainty pearls or crystals in creative hair slides, it’s all about the girly look and pink, white and purple color palettes are huge. Style even the most sugary sweet headgear with your usual look to make it your own and even pair with the chunky black boots trend for the perfect style contradiction.

Quilted Details

Whether it’s bags, shoes or belts, quilted leather detailing is a big look for fall this year and because it’s also a classic, you really can’t go wrong. Choose simple styles to make sure the focus is all about the quilting and stick to black if you’re investing in high-end because you can be sure that it will always look good.

Boots Tougher Than Nails

If you’re choosing one pair of boots for fall, it’s got to be a super chunky pair. The runways were stacked with extra heavyweight boots and whether its platform, heels or flats, the bigger the sole, the better. Style yours this fall with black tights and ‘90s-inspired little black dresses for the perfect on-trend look.

Hair Scrunchies

Yes, that’s right. The scrunchie is back. So, if you’re familiar with Sex and The City and Carrie’s huge rant about the appearance of a scrunchie in New York City, the trend has come back to prove her wrong. You’ll definitely be seeing this headwear trend popping up wherever you go this season. Any color, any print, this season, grab a scrunchie and throw your hair into a super-simple low ponytail for a sweet, sleek and seriously cool everyday look.

Period-Inspired Jewelry

One of the more unusual and ornate jewelry trends for the season is period-inspired pieces with a difference. From pearl accents to engraved silhouettes on chunky statement earrings, it’s all about the detail when it comes to this trend.

Statement Waist Belts

If you don’t believe fashion trends go full circle, you will now. Super-thick statement waist belts are back for fall so if you have one or two from the early 2000s then you’re all set. If not, this is the style of belt you need for this season. Think animal print, bold logos and buckles and all the color. Wear yours wrapped over dresses, around blazer jackets and over coats rather than styled with simple jeans and a top.

Chunky Gold Hoop Earrings

Hoops have been major for a couple of seasons now and there’s no stopping this trend for fall. It’s also a great trend to opt for because hoops are a classic that will never go out of style – they just happen to be ultra on-trend right now. Go for smaller but chunky hoops to make this look as contemporary as possible and pair them with a simple low ponytail and even a hair ribbon for a real runway vibe.

Leather Woven Handbags

Kicked off by designers, such as Bottega Veneta, woven leather handbags have become a staple for the fall season this year. From belt bags to backpacks, it’s all about the beautifully crafted effect of the leather which gives it a chic and unique texture different to any other bag. The high-end designers are loving this look but if you’re not on a designer budget, there are still brands like Cole Haan who nail the trends at a more affordable price point.

Layers of Gold Chains

If you’re looking to layer your jewelry this fall, keep it chunky and keep it gold. It’s all about the ‘90s-inspired look for the season so add this street style vibe to any outfit. Just because the look is larger than life doesn’t mean you need to spend your entire seasonal budget though. This is a trend after all so stick to high street labels for an affordable take on the trend (or at the very least, find chunky chains on sale with up to 70% discounts with Shop It To Me!).

Statement Winter Hats

When it comes to fall and winter, it’s easy to throw on a beanie hat when the temperatures drop. However, according to the likes of Saint Laurent and Michael Kors, ordinary hats are out and extra AF hats are in. Whether you love a cozy wool beanie to throw on with a hoodie or a basic baseball hat, level up this fall and make sure your hat includes crystals, pearls and all sorts of fabrics, including leather.

Ski-Inspired Sunglasses

No matter what the season, sunglasses are always a chic way to finish an outfit. If you’re out and about and it’s not raining, sunglasses work and this fall, frames are bigger than ever. Think ski-season and you’re on the right track. Color is also important and some of the biggest designers have been dropping options in bright blue or even red that add a touch of fun to any look.
