All the Must-Try Accessory Trends From the Fall 2022 Collections

The clothes that defined the fall 2022 collections have an elegant sincerity: structured suiting, graceful maxiskirts, and simple tanks numbered among the compelling ideas. When it comes to getting dressed, it will be all about ease. So leave it to the accessories to get weird!

From chunky sneakers lifted from skate culture to fluffy hats and purses, the accessories that left a mark are stranger and more surreal than ever before. Some have obvious shelf appeal, like the heart bags at Simone Rocha and Chanel, others will take some getting used too like Loewe’s gigantic bow stilettos and Rick Owens’s fog machines. Even the totally pragmatic belt became a vehicle for experimentation: Miu Miu, Peter Do, and Altuzarra layered them two and three at a time. 

Still, some classics prevailed. Over-the-knee boots were the dominant idea from New York to Paris, with Michael Kors, Courrèges, Etro, and Isabel Marant grounding their collections on thigh-grazing leather styles. Mary-Janes got a punky edge courtesy of platforms at Valentino and Versace, and the ever-more-popular hobo bag shape was revamped at Fendi, Gucci, Off-White, and Bottega Veneta. Here, a rundown of all the kooky, fun, essential accessory trends you’ll need to know for fall 2022. 

Try a Mile-High Boot

You might need extra-long legs to wear this season’s best boots, with hip-bone-skimming styles appearing at Balenciaga, Sacai, Burberry, and more.
