Spring 2018 Accessory Trends

If you follow me on Instagram you know I’m all about the accessories and I just can’t keep my hands off of them! Whether it’s sunglasses, jewelry, scarves or bags, I love how any accessory can pull an entire look together. Even with the simplest clothing an accessory can make a huge statement!

I also love that even though accessory trends change, a lot of them seem to come back years after their first trending season! One perfect example from this year is the return of FANNY PACKS!! Of course the higher-end pieces are being called “belt bags” but let’s be real, fanny packs are back, and it’s AMAZING if you ask me.

Let’s dive into this Spring’s accessory trends, shall we?

Teeny-Tiny Sunglasses

Yup, you read that correctly. Miniature “matrix” sunglasses are making a statement this season and I can’t complain because I’ve got a few pairs myself, hah! We’ve seen them on the runways, celebs and influencers alike this season and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.

Structured Geometric Bags

We’re seeing a lot of structured, somewhat lunch-box looking bags both on the runway and in the streets this Spring! I personally love a good structured handheld bag so it’s a YAY for me!

Shop Structured Bags: Zara, TDE, ASOS

Baker Boy Hats

I feel like this has been a trend since Fall 2017….or is it just me? Either way the baker boy hat is looking like the perfect accessory to top of an outfit, get it 😉 These hats are being worn with dresses, jeans and even blazers too! Offered in a wide variety of materials, textures and patterns these hats are easy to pair.

Belt Bags

As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, the fanny packs are in MAJOR action this season! I haven’t been able to get my hands on one just yet but they’re super convenient because they require no hands! They’re the perfect addition to any outfit, from dresses to pants, and make for a great compact bag for little on-the-go items.

Straw Bags

Why take a straw bag only to the beach when you can take it with you wherever you go?! These unique bags are super in this season, being worn not only in tropical destinations but also within the city! I haven’t invested in a small straw bag just yet because where I live (Vancouver, BC) it’s still pouring rain and it just doesn’t feel right to be carrying around a straw bag, you know?

Shop Straw Bags: Kembali Collective, Zara, Topshop

Statement Earrings

The tassel and bobble earrings have been big for quite a few seasons now and it looks like they’re being joined with more statement pieces, specifically minimalistic statement earrings (is that contradicting? Oh well.). For example, I’ve been seeing a lot of wire earring pieces in various shapes, like face silhouettes. I’m thinking of doing another post specifically on jewelry or earring trends so let me know if you want to see that in the comments below!

Layered Dainty Necklaces

One of my personal favourites is the dainty necklace trend because they’re simple yet add so much to a full look. One of my favourite shops for this type of necklace is Mejuri because the quality is fantastic and they have such a huge selection of styles! Not to mention, these dainty necklaces are easy to pair other jewelry like rings and earrings with as well.
