These are being teamed up with ready-to-wear fashion from top designers.

2. Three-Dimensional Accessories


3D is in, and it’s taking over the fashion accessories scene. From the park to the beach, we’re seeing 3-D doll charms and appliques in bold colors, large studs, metallic hair accessories. Even Gucci has gotten on board with its cool three-dimensional embellishments, such as large studded bows on pumps with rhinestones and pearls.

Clothing used to be the way to show art through fashion. This summer 2017 season, accessories are the fashion choice for showing off art. From religious art to underwater art, from nature art to branding images, there are artistic themes all over the place. These themes are being hand-painted and printed on summer boots, platform heels, wedges, flip flops, sandals any other types of summer shoes.

We are seeing this summer fashion accessory updated with prints, embroideries and embellishments. These are becoming a “must have” accessory for the busy, outdoor-loving millennial for summer 2017.

5. Branding Accessories

Classic 90s is a fave for the Internet Generation. So, designers are stepping up their game with 90s branded t-shirts. They’re letting street wear inspire them into creating gear with fake logo for modern-age branded clothing. Christian Dior’s SS17 RTW collection was completed focused on the logo created specifically for this collection. It was featured on chokers, shoe straps, rings, clutch handles and more. Moschino did the same with their handbag straps and thigh-high boots.
