The Must-Know Accessory Trends Coming Out Of Fashion Month

Whenever we see exciting new outfits cascading down the runway, we have to remind ourselves of the harsh truth: You can’t afford that full look, babygirl. But, what’s our consolation prize? Accessories, of course. Because while shelling out thousands of dollars on a complete, straight-off-the-runway ensemble isn’t exactly accessible, splurging on a pair of shoes or a timeless bag is a lot more justifiable.

Accessories are the perfect entry point to any designer label, and that’s why we can’t help but get our (figurative) binoculars out to spot what pair of sunglasses or what type of hat we’ll be wearing next season. With Fashion Month well underway, the 11 accessory trends ahead are worth adding to your arsenal by next season (if not sooner). Even if you’re on a tight budget, these little add-ons have endless potential — and will hold you over until you (one day) CAN buy the whole damn show.


White Socks
Don’t underestimate the power of a good, clean white ankle sock. They can make all the difference in a look, especially with a pair of sandals.

Yes, Flip-Flops
Love ’em or hate ’em, it’s happening: The flip-flop is making headway in fashion. From flat and minimal to chunky platforms, pick your poison next summer.

Caboodle-esque Box Bags
While Staud had legitimate caboodles that brought us back to adolescence, other designers were fond of structured, boxy bags that could easily hold all of your lipgloss, eyeshadow, and then some.

The Scarf at the Waist
Bored of your silk scarves? Try tying one right at the waistline for added dimension.

Giant Bags
Schlepping is the name of the game. This season’s bags are bigger than ever, which means if you don’t pack light for your daily routine, you’re actually in luck.

Dripping in Chains
Chain details have been a mainstay this season, whether on your bag, belt, headpiece, or beyond.

Graduation Caps
We knew it would come in handy one day.

Necklaces in Hand
Hold up, why is everyone holding their necklaces? We’re not entirely sure, but it’s certainly a new way to think about jewelry.

Dumpling Bags
Another popular silhouette this season looks like a scarf tied into a little napsack. We’re calling them dumplings.
