And just like that, Fashion Month has come to a close. Now that we’ve closely watched collections from New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it’s time to analyze all of our notes and findings.
Our favorite part of recapping the month is embracing all of the oddities: the one-offs, the weird, and the absolutely breathtaking. Most of the time, these come in the form of accessories, from shoes and bags to jewels and headgear. And come Spring 2019, things are going to be interesting. From earrings that double as utensils and new and inventive ways to carry our spare change (hint: on our wrists and our thighs) to some pretty out-there hats, we rounded up the coolest accessories to come out of Fashion Month.
From New York to Paris, these are the accessories to know, below.
