6 Accessory Trends That Are in for 2023

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; accessories are magical things. There’s no point in debating the subject; I won’t be told otherwise. What else has the power to elevate a basic jeans-and-t-shirt outfit like a piece of jewellery or, indeed, boasts the ability to make a dress work for day or night like a well-chosen shoe. Accessories unlock more outfit potential in a way clothes simply cannot and, in my book, that makes them magic. 

Assuming we’re in agreement, I thought it might be of interest to talk you through the biggest accessory trends 2023 has to offer, as seen on the spring/summer runways. The new designer collections are always the first place I look to for accessory inspiration for the year ahead and, there’s a distinct balance in playfulness and timelessness. Sitting alongside frou frou corsages, for instance, is the handbag trend I know every minimalist will want to invest in. As I discovered when writing our overarching spring/summer 2023 fashion trends report, this season is going to be a tale of two aesthetics—the pared back and the maximal—and the accessories on show absolutely reflect that. All you need to do is choose your favourite add-ons from the below and I guarantee your year will get off to a stylish start. Scroll on to see them.
