Ready-to-wear gets a lot of airtime here at Who What Wear, but we cannot forget the importance of a good accessory. Strategic add-ons take a look from good to great and make the difference between wearing an outfit and styling one. This brings me to today's task: diving into the accessories set to define spring 2024.

There's a lot to unpack when it comes to accessories this season, even more so than usual. In 2024, personality pieces are leading the trend game, and hats, statement jewelry items, opera gloves, hosiery, and sculptural belts are all showing out, first on the runways and now in the real world. And then comes the shoe and handbag categories, where Prada, The Row, Chanel, and Alaïa currently have the upper hand on their high-fashion competitors. Out of thousands of options, find out which 29 accessories are already dominating the spring season ahead.
