Whatever the current season—fall, autumn, monsoon, extremely windy—there is a fashion trend for it. But even fashion is aware that you’ll probably go through three seasons in that time, so put your clothes on the back burner. What then should one do? Pick up on accessories, of course! And here’s how to master all of this season’s accessory trends while staying ahead of the curve and the crowd. These are patterns that, based on prior years, will likely continue through 2023 and possibly beyond.
They are indeed fairly large in 2022, but the transition from the runways to the high streets takes some time. Yes, Alexander McQueen and Prada certainly step it up, but so do H&M and Uniqlo. You know what we cherish most, though? the participation of domestic brands in the craze. We would much prefer to shower them with affection, to be honest. Here is our selection of domestic brands that are utilizing the micro bag trend. Also, bear in mind that the micro bag trend keeps coming back every few years, so hold onto these pieces even after the season is over. They were brought in once more this year by Kylie Jenner and Zoe Kravitz, and undoubtedly someone.
Declaratory Boots & Heels
Avoid wearing stilettos and extremely high heels because, my friends, it’s all about funky heels, weird shapes, and boots! You can’t claim to be a fashionista if you don’t have at least two pairs of boots in your closet, whether they are in animal prints with block heels from Steve Madden or these thigh-high ones from Nykaa. We saw a variety of boots, including dainty and thick army-style ones. Look at these green heels if you want something unusual. If those are too much for you, Nykaa Fashion has provided a milder version. London Rag has a stunning pair in red with textured, triangle heels for those who don’t exactly want green (you can’t escape it this year, FYI) but still want shoes that make a statement.
Three times in denim
Okay, this time we kind of cheated. Denim is making a comeback, but not only as an accessory. But on the other hand, quality “never goes out of style,” as Levi’s tagline puts it. Bring out all of your vintage baggy jeans, maxi skirts, tiny skirts, and if you must, your skinny jeans. However, if you truly want to look hip, you’ll want to invest in or dust off some high-rise blue jeans, big shirts, and jackets from the 1970s. While the Levi’s 501 are the best for the trend, you might also want to have a look at these loose, flared ones from Twenty Dresses by Nykaa, the flared, cropped alternatives from Vero Moda, and, shockingly, Zara’s denim line.
Big Platform Shoes
Comfortable, flat, and chunky. Please, yes! Maybe this look isn’t for everyone, but if you don’t mind giving up your dainty high heels, go ahead. The sneaker impact on pumps, boots, and even sandals is chunky but not Dadcore. Start with a pair of F21 sandals or Birkenstocks (or similar brands). LBB favorites are those by Marcus Taurus or those that are comparable. Check out the entire collection here for the real stuff, whether it’s flatform or platform wedges.
This style was once popular among Irish farmers and fishermen who used it to protect themselves from the elements. Even though you might think the trend is uninteresting, you can tell it’s popular by looking at the Instagram feeds of stars like Rihanna, Cara, Justin Bieber, Ranveer Singh, and even Alia Bhatt. Plus, Gen-Z approves of it. So embrace the trend and sport the hat. Assignment ups the glitter while Hair Drama & Co. creates a stylish tie-dye look. Check out our list right here for more choices, though.
During the summer, charming clutches, sling bags, and coin purses were all the rage. In the fall, oversized bags take their place. Consider satchels, textured briefcases with an animal print, portfolios, box bags, and totes in traditional colors like black, tan, and of course, oxblood! In light of the It Bag’s return, this makes perfect sense! Put on a stylish peacoat or trench and carry the ideal bag to accommodate all your necessities.
Booties were really popular last season, but this year knee-highs are back! Alexander Wang and Pucci both carried knee-highs with a textured snake design. Most of the boots are shown in major shows.
Statement neckpieces that were polished, sleek, and corroded in silver appeared in Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 collection and other noteworthy presentations. Silver is stylish, understated, and lends an air of sophistication to any ensemble.
Fur is a moral dilemma for me since, as I’m sure you’ll agree, I don’t view animal cruelty as fashion. Faux fur is acceptable, but I could never wear real fur. Although faux fur isn’t as warm as real fur, many designers, including the house of Chanel, have switched to it because it is cruelty-free and nearly identical to real fur today. Fur has been used extensively in accessories for fall, including purses, scarves, and as trim for winter jackets.
