As we all know by now, if Anna Wintour says it's so, it's so. In the latest episode of Vogue's Go Ask Anna series, Wintour was asked to give her two cents on the biggest accessory trends of 2020, and of course, we were all ears. Although Wintour herself doesn't change up her own accessories much (she sticks to oversize sunglasses, statement necklaces, and classic handbags—if carrying a handbag at all), that doesn't mean she's not fully aware of what trends were all over the runways and will trickle to the mainstream in 2020. 

In response to the 2020 accessory trends question, Wintour stated, "We're seeing a lot of linen and raffia fabrics that are very organic and natural, we're seeing a lot of very fantastical twisted pearl necklaces and then bucket bags. Bucket bags and more bucket bags, in leather, in canvas, in suede, in every possible fabric that you can think of." So there you have it. The queen of trend forecasting has spoken, and we're more excited for 2020 than ever. 

Scroll on to shop the three accessory trends Wintour named before everyone else.
