We’re seeing a lot of great micro-trends in shoes, accessories and bags this year! Here’s a quick overview:

In Shoes: Teeny Tiny Micro Heels, Sandal-Flats, Delicate Thin Strap Tie-Up Shoes, Espadrille Platforms & Flatforms, Rope Textures, “Brandless” Heels that Speak to Quiet Luxury

In Belts: Thin is in! Thin belts reign supreme over the thick waist belts popularized in 2018. Wear them with your favorite trousers as a chic, understated embellishment.

In Accessories: While there’s still a wide range of pieces still in style, we’re seeing a fresh take on layering jewelry with smaller, more delicate statement pieces rather than larger chunky pieces of years past.

In Sunglasses: Brandless Designer Dupes are all the rage! Check out our more in-depth sunglasses article, Designer Sunglasses VS Their Dupes here.

In Bags: Straw totes with black or brown leather accents are a staple in minimalist wardrobes!
