As fall rolls around, the women of the world will be wearing sharp suits and detailed frocks. Sneakers are out, kitten heels are in and platform boots will make a big comeback. But what about the smaller details? Those carefully selected finishing touches take an outfit from not quite there to catwalk-ready. These are the accessories you’ll want to wear this fall.

An eye-catching hat

This season, you won’t be fully dressed unless your head is covered. Great hats that draw on iconic film history are particularly popular. Huge brimmed hats à la Audrey Hepburn, chic berets à la Faye Dunaway and ridiculous fascinator à la the British Royal Family, hats are everywhere. Go bold or go home.

Baroque bags

Elaborate flowery designs are all the rage this fall, especially on clutch bags. This gorgeous 17th-century style is all about detail, sumptuous colors and uniqueness, so no two bags should be quite the same.

Big Belts

Large belts made from leather, satin and other eye-catching materials have made their way back on the catwalk. Paired with masculine tailoring, a properly cinched waist looks feminine and fun.

Chunky gold jewelry

Large gold or gold-imitation jewelry accessories seems to make a comeback every few years. Right now it’s chunky gold earrings that are making the biggest impression, closely followed by statement chain-link necklaces. If your earlobes aren’t stretched, your earrings aren’t big enough!

Cats Eye Sunglasses

Another timeless look that has been reinvigorated for 2019. Cats eye glasses came to prominence in the 1950s, thanks to the likes of ultra-vamp Bettie Page. Today, a range of designers including Lowe, Chanel, Tom Ford, Prada, and Celine have cats eye sunglasses in their collections. The trend has gone a little slimmer than days gone past and simple black or tortoiseshell is the chicest option. If you’re lucky enough to have a vintage pair already, bring them out of retirement with a new lease of life by having replacement lenses fitted.

Kitten Heels

Wide-legged trousers are still dominating the lower halves of fashionista bodies this season. Thank god then, for kitten heels. No more tripping on those wide hems or fraying the edge of your trousers under the sole of your trainers. Narrow kitten heels with an elegant point and a short heel are the perfect accompaniment to a smart pair of flowing trousers.

Giant Satchels

There’s no space in a clutch bag for a MacBook. Thankfully, giant satchel bags are also ultra-chic this season. The bigger the better, it seems. If you can afford it, go for a simple design in high-quality leather, tan or brown. A bag like that is an investment you’ll be using for years to come.

Olive leather

Speaking of leather, if you can find a giant satchel in olive-colored leather you’re killing it by covering two trends at a time. Olive leather bags, belts, and even ankle boots are making an appearance, giving outfits a utility vibe that’s been missing for a while. Tie an olive leather belt around your waist to become a triple trend threat.



There was a period in the 1980s where you simply couldn’t have too many bangles on your arms. Perhaps Madonna started it. Thankfully the bangle trend hasn’t reached Lucky Star proportions but thin stacks of tasteful bangles have definitely made a comeback. Delicate gold bangles are a good choice, with a few statement rose-colored bangles to break it up.

That’s our rundown of the 9 accessories you’ll want to wear this fall. It doesn’t take long for mainstream stores to pick up on these trends so start collecting your statement pieces now before everyone gets in on it!
