Belt bags, also known as fanny packs or bum bags or waist pouches are among the latest trend when it comes to bags. Belt bags can be worn just like a belt that you pull through your belt loops or it could be worn like a cross body bag. Belt bags were once the accessory that people were too embarrassed to wear and were labelled as unfashionable or ugly a few years ago but now it has emerged as the latest trend. Belt bags come in a variety of patterns.
The popularity of Crocs brand footwear show no sign of stopping. Consumers are now moving away from the conventional notions of beauty and are buying a footwear that is comfortable to wear and at the same time a popular footwear trend. People can customise their crocs as well. Jibbitz are decorations that sticks in the holes of your Crocs. These come in various designs such as of flowers, fruits, animals and emojis.

The neon trend is here to stay. Either neon coloured top or pants or just fluorescent shaded accessories such as handbags or shoes can be worn to follow the trend.

When it comes to bags XXL bags are another trend. Instead of multiple tote bags, XXL bags are the new trend. In general, over-sized bags from the large clutch bags that can carry everything to the huge tote bags are in the forefront. XXL bags, with their unrestrained space to hold multiple objects such as umbrella, coat, notebooks, or a laptop, have become the trend. Fashion influencers on social media sites such as Instagram are seen with literally elephantine sized bags. The traditionally small handbags are increasing their size and even the classic clutches that are used in the evenings and for parties have also evolved into a bigger size.
When it comes to eye glasses, the classic cat eyeglasses have a triumphant comeback. The cat eyeglasses can be fitted with prescription lenses or just plain ones for style. Exaggerated wing- shaped frames with bold hues and even printed frames like marble eyeglass frames or leopard print are in trend.
Wearing logo accessories is another trend. Design houses such as Chanel, Gucci and Fendi have been on trend with this. The logo trend can be followed by wearing a hat or a baseball cap with the logo of your favourite brand. You can embrace a logo T-shirt paired with denim pieces. You can also try a logo jewellery piece such as an earring, necklace or even a brooch. A classic logo bag is another option.
Fringe and feathers
Fringe can be on clothing and shoes and feathers can be on accessories and handbags. A handbag with some subtle fringe or footwear with feathers can be used. If you want to be more bold with fringes and feathers, you can go for a full-fringed dress or a blouse with feathered detail.
