Trends can come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they are an overall aesthetic versus one particular item (e.g., bourgeoise dressing vs. square-toe sandals), but other times, they are so subtle, you can miss them if you aren't looking hard enough. Those, my friends, are what we call micro-trends and I think I just spotted the biggest one of fall 2019. I'm calling this trend scrunched accessories (creative, I know) because the detailing is basically a dissected scrunchie or ruching on everything from bag handles to shoes to belts and back again.
If you're looking to update your fall wardrobe but hate buying into trends, scrunched accessories might just be the perfect seasonal investment for you. Since the ruching detailing is so subtle, this array of accessories within the trend will pair perfectly with everything you would normally wear but will add a graceful touch of forwardness. Here we have rounded up some of the best scrunched accessories on the market right now for you to shop, in addition to a couple of our favorite photos of the styles we've been eyeing on Instagram.
