We’re winding down with Spring Trends Week, and today we’re talking about some of the big handbag and accessory trends for spring 2023!
Accessories such as jewelry, eyewear, and belts are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your wardrobe. And even with handbags, while generally a bit more of an investment, the cost per wear works itself out over time. But the best part about accessories and handbags is, they always fit!
Well, almost always. I suppose some bracelets can pose fit issues, but even then, you don’t usually outgrow them when you have a few too many tacos on vacation… not that I would know anything about that.
Anyway, these are some of the biggest trends I’m seeing in accessories and handbags for this spring season.
Handbag & Accessory Trends for Spring 2023
#1. Woven Bags

Straw totes and woven bags are so summery and fun, and they’re still going strong this season, but I’m seeing a shift away from the slouchy styles. More structured totes are where handbag trends are headed right now. If you add one bag to your spring/summer wardrobe, make it a structured straw or woven style.
Style Tip: Make sure you have a good shoe pairing or two to go with any new new handbag purchase!
#2. Chunky Jewelry

The delicate jewelry that has been trending for the past few years is slowly giving way to chunkier styles, and layered looks are still very much a thing. Statement earrings and cuff bracelets are also going to be big this year.
I’m not sure how I feel about this one; I’ve always been more into delicates, especially with necklaces, but I could be convinced to try some larger earrings, and I’ve always liked a good cuff bracelet.
#3. Geometric Sunglasses & Angular Shapes

One of the biggest accessory trends for spring 2023 is geometric shapes and more angular silhouettes in eyewear. I’m also starting to see the wider, shorter styles that were so popular in the early aughts. Rounder frames are also trending.
As I often say, never underestimate the power of a great pair of sunglasses. They aren’t just a practical way to protect your eyes from the sun; they really amp up the style factor of just about any outfit.
#4. Large Hoops & Silver Tones

I’m hearing that silver tone jewelry is on its way back in, and I am so excited for this one! I’ve always preferred silver tones, as they work better with my skin tone. Also large hoops, and large silver hoops especially, so I lumped them together here.
#5. Pearls Reimagined

And finally, pearls have been trending big for a few seasons, and they’re back stronger than ever before. More specifically, pearls in irregular shapes and combined with other metals with interesting details.
As always, this isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s a great place to start. Which of these trends do you plan to lean into this spring?
