5 Big Spring 2024 Accessories Trends

All we need is a glimmer of sunshine and most of us will ditch our knitted cardis and thick winter coats in preparation for spring fashion. So, with sun hopefully on its way over the next couple of months, now is the time to invest in the latest accessories so you can look hip and relevant come spring. 

Here are the top five biggest trends as seen on the spring/summer 2024 catwalks. 

Circle bags

Once upon a time, it was all about the box clutch; last year favoured the bucket bag; and nearly everyone has used a fanny pack recently to keep their essentials in. 

Well, it is time to ditch your saddle bag, get rid of your envelope clutch, and take off your backpack, as circle bags are going to be all the rage.

This trend was seen on Louis Vuitton’s runway, as well as Hermes’ and Polo’s, so when looking for something new this season, make sure it is round. 

Masked sunglasses

It’s not spring or summer without having your stylish sunglasses case on your person at all times, so you can whip out your shades to protect against blinding sunlight. After all, nobody wants to squint and risk even more wrinkles on their skin. 

This year, however, the trend isn’t for aviators, cat eyes, or wayfarer ones, but for masked sunglasses.

“Next season’s glasses borrow from both lab goggle and ski goggles,” Vogue described, adding: “The trick to wearing glasses that take up half your face is to choose a pair that’s mostly clear - or, even better, with subtle coloured lenses like at Etro or Missoni.”

Low-hanging belts

Low-hanging belts are not a new look, and bands like Hear’Say meant that most of us wore them in the early 2000s. This trend was not unique either, having stolen the idea from the ‘80s when it was often teamed with a mini skirt or a tunic. 

All these years later, however, they are on their way back, with Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Copova Lowena, Vaquera, and Moschino all including them in their spring/summer shows. 

Pointed flats

Heels fell out of favour as everyday shoes as long as 25 years ago when ballet pumps meant that women could look stylish without being uncomfortable. 

Flat shoes have remained popular since then, but this year they are updated with a pointed toe. These look great with tailored trousers, midi skirts and city shorts. 

Victoria Beckham even teamed a pair of backless pointed-toe brogues with calf-length socks in her latest runway show, so don’t be afraid to go bold with this look. 


Greige fans need not worry as the neutral shade isn’t going anywhere this season. However, if you do fancy adding a bit of colour to your spring outfit, make sure it includes stripes. 

According to Elle, they are taking over polka dots as the pattern of the year, saying: “This is a print that can be worn from head to toe.”

It added: “Don’t be afraid to go bold here - these stripes were made to be seen.”

So whether you opt for blue and white stripy ankle boots, thick striped handbags, or bold stripy accessories, you will certainly look like you’ve been paying attention to the latest fashion trends when you step outside.
