Fall Accessory Trends 2018

­Accessories are my favorite!! Easy, fast… no size worries. And this season, there is something for everyone, which I love!

You do not have to wear trends, though! The reason I share them is because I want you to be informed, smart shoppers. I like to keep my ladies in the know. 😉

So let’s break down the biggest accessory trends of the fall/winter 2018 seasons!!  Starting with handbags…

Fall Accessory Trends - Handbags including quilted handbags, chunky chains, and belt bags

#1| Handbags

Logo bags are big this year. This isn’t my favorite trend, but I’m seeing it everywhere… So if you’re a logo girl, this is your moment!

Look for chunky chains on you right hndbags… a very luxe-looking detail.

Quilted handbags that look like quilted jackets are on trend.

Fringe bags are still going strong.

Belt bags are very in. I bought a belt bag this year. It’s a 2-in-1. I can wear it as a belt or as a shoulder bag and I love it!

Prints – In terms of prints, you have plaids, florals, and fluffy plush bags. Metallics are also still a big trend.

White is a big color trend for accessories, including handbags. So don’t put your white away ! You can wear it year-round. One of my favorite white bags is my Chloé Nile bracelet bag.

#2 | Belts

The next category is belts. They’re back! You’ve probably seen the Gucci logo belt all over Instagram because it’s one of the most popular belts. You can also do a skinny belt or a big oversized corset belt. Make sure you’re careful with proportions, though! I’ve done a video on belts that you can watch here.

sharing jewelry accessory trends of 2018 including statement earrings, cuffs, and chunky chains


Jewelry is kind of all over the place right now. You can wear dainty and ladylike jewelry or bold statement pieces. Statement earrings are still going strong too. For affordable options look at Baublebar!

Pearls are another jewelry trend. They’re a classic option, but you can look for more modern options.

Next, oversized cuff bracelets are big. Literally and figuratively. I’ve had this Giles and Brother cuff for a long time and I love it! I’ve also seen them styled, stacked up your arm like arm candy.

I talked about chunky chains with handbags. It also carries over into jewelry! Chunky, oversized chain necklaces are in right now.

fall accessory trends 2018 - shoes including white, plaid, prints, pumps reinvented

#3 | Shoes

I mentioned some of the shoe trends in my fall fashion trends video. If you haven’t seen that yet, you can watch it here.

The first trend is Western-inspired. You can find boots with cool western stitching or the western shape and look of a traditional cowboy boot.

Animal prints are always very wearable. I just bought these cheetah print flats and love them!

Pumps reinvented are one of the trends I’m most excited about. It’s taking classic pumps and adding modern and unusual details like sculptural heels, funky straps, cool cutouts, etc.

Another fun thing about shoes right now is that all different kinds of heels are in. You can wear different heights, different types (think chunky heel versus stilettos), platforms, and of course chic flats.

Just like with clothes and handbags, prints are in! You can wear plaid, cheetah, etc. White is also in style as I mentioned above. You can try white booties or boots, white pumps, white flats, etc. White can be hard to wear on your feet so be careful. I styled white boots in a blog post here.

The last trend in shoes is pumped up sneakers! It’s super cool and funky. It basically looks like a normal sneaker with cool springs on the bottom.

fall accessory trends - sunglasses including embellished framed, flat top frames, translucent frames, etc.

#4 | Sunglasses

The last category is sunglasses! There are a ton of frames that are hot right now. This is such an easy and affordable way to have fun without fashion.

You can try the super retro, cat-eye frame, white frames, pink sunglasses (see how I styled my new favorite pink sunglasses here), tinted lenses (orange, yellow, pink, etc.) translucent frames, flat top or shield sunglasses (modern and futuristic looking), round frames, embellished frames, and uniquely shaped frames like star or heart-shaped frames.
