While there are classic accessories that will be stylish forever, each year brings along a whole stack of new trends to spice things up. This year, we’ve definitely seen numerous spunky pieces trickle into this year’s must-haves, but there has also been a large focus on timeless accessories.
Here are the top 10 accessories trends we’ve seen worn by the masses this year.
Birkenstocks Sandals. These timeless leather sandals are both comfortable and uber trendy this year! As a double threat, we don’t see these going anywhere anytime soon.
Anklets. Hello, is this 1999 calling? That’s right, jewellery for your ankles is back!
Crew Socks. Comfortable? Check. Inexpensive? Check. On trend? Check!
Chunky Shoes. Whether it is ankle boots you are after or a pair of new takkies, the chunkier the sole of the shoe this year, the better.
Hoop Earrings. Another timeless piece! These bad boys were once the biggest thing out there, and now they’re making a comeback!
Cat-Eye or Big Colour-Framed Sunnies. The last thing 2020 needs is drama, but adding a little to your outfits may actually do some good!
Bucket Hats. Characterized by their short and downward sloping brim, these hats are an effortless way to protect yourself from the sun in style.
Statement Necklaces. Gone are the days where the smallest, most intricate pieces were at the top of the charts. This year, making a statement with a large chunky chain is a must.
Chunky Gold Jewellery. Gold is timeless, for sure! But this year, the chunkier the better.
Baguette Bags. And lastly, another trend straight out of the 90s has come back in full force. Hello, baguette bags!
