1. Mismatched Earrings

The proportion play of pairing opposing earrings is all the rage this season. If you’re a big fan of quirky, unexpected jewelry choices, this statement can easily add an avant-garde touch to your outfit. Mismatching on purpose is definitely a thing; fashion-forward designers like Céline, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Jacquemus are among those supporting this look.
The hi-end accessories designer Lizzie Fortunato, whose New York based label is inspired by fine art, travel, and artisanal craftsmanship, mentioned: “There’s an overwhelming earring trend in general. Any kind of interesting earring is going to grab attention right now. In particular with asymmetry, it’s something that catches the eye—it’s a little askew, a little odd, and then you realize it’s cool, it’s beautiful, and it makes you take notice.”
2. Neck Pouches

Be ready to go hands-free because necklace bags have become “favorite IT piece” among streetwear enthusiasts at the moment. We've noticed Instagram it-girls and fashion bloggers wearing this look to complement their street luxe #ootd. This accessory has gotten a lot of validation from the runways, too, so go for it and pair one with your favorite fall outfit and chunky sneakers to let your accessories do all the talking!
3. Exaggerated Puffer Scarves

This season’s theme is “go big or go home”. In that spirit, oversized and exaggerated puffer scarves will be the eye-popping accessory of the season. As cooler temperatures set in, you'll be happy to wrap yourself in what amounts to a mini duvet because you'll actually be warm! This practical fashion statement will pair well with a simple sweater or a chic puffer jacket and futuristic sneakers for bold styling.
4. Decorative pastel pumps

Luxurious and highly ornamented footwear was all over the runways for this season. The general mood of these Fall 2018 shoes are romance and feminine glamour. We love how pastels continue to be shown for colder months, and this palette is just right for this shoe trend. Embellishments like embroidery, glittering rhinestones and gems create an antique quality. Dolce & Gabbana showcased lilac and pastel blue heels with dazzling jeweled crown motifs, as well as mustard ankle boots with attention-grabbing costume jewelry embellishments. If you consider yourself shoe-obsessed this is your moment to shine.
5. Fanciful elbow gloves

The old Hollywood classic opera gloves are definitely coming back this season but in a more street-wear ready way. We would see a new variation in vibrant colors that's more fun accessible than lady-like and formal. Elbow gloves add dimension and depth to Fall outfits and will make wearing various sleeve lengths more manageable - maybe you can get more mileage out of your favorite summer frock! This is an accessory that lends itself to many different styles and can create a look that feels modern and fresh.
We'd love to hear which of these accessories you'd like to add to your Fall wardrobe!
