In our experience, even the best outfit isn’t complete until you add accessories, and in 2023, there’s no shortage of unique pieces to help you discover and define your personal style! Here are a few accessory trends you want to have in your closet to elevate your everyday look. 

Megawatt Metallics

Metallics are here to stay for a while — not only as an embellishment, but as the main character! Add some shine to your outfit with metallic handbags, shoes, and even hats. This accessory trend is sure to make your outfit shine!

Low-key Luxury Bags

Luxury bags will always be popular, but post-logomania, the current accessory trend is for designer items to be almost unrecognizable. You can jump into low-key luxury with XL classic pieces made of leather, or take baby steps with faux-leather bags in small or medium sizes in sleek shapes. Bonus points if you go the sustainable route and find a luxury bag (for a great deal, no less) at Buffalo Exchange!

Add a Pop of Color

Fun and colorful eyewear has been around for a few seasons now and shows no signs of slowing down! For 2023’s eyewear accessory trend, we’re seeing frames in exaggerated shapes and super-saturated shades. Pro tip: opt for a primary color to make your outfit pop (bright red, sunny yellow and cobalt blue are some of 2023’s biggest color trends!)
