7 Spring 2015 Accessory Trends to Watch For

The runways at New York Fashion Week inspire us season after season, but often it's the accessories that make a lasting impression. From bold bags to floral headpieces, this season's accessories were nothing short of showstopping. We rounded up seven of our favorite spring 2015 accessory trends that have us daydreaming: floral headpieces, hats, lace-up sandals, necklaces, bags, futuristic frames, and belts.

Floral Headpiece: Bora Aksu

It wouldn't be Fashion Week without floral prints, but this season the motif is taking on a different form. Floral headpieces blossomed on the runways of Fashion Week, representing a fresh and prospering spring 2015 season. This floral-embellished headpiece from the Bora Aksu show added character to his ballet-inspired collection of soft whites, blues, sheer, and crochet.

The Marchesa show is always a sight with red-carpet–worthy gowns full of embellishment, tulle, and feminine sophistication. For their 10-year anniversary, designers Georgina and Keren created their version of a Woodstock-inspired hippie. A floral crown was the perfect way to top off their bohemian look.

Statement-making necklaces donned the necklines of models as they strutted down the runways. Our favorite styles: chokers, half-moon necklaces, and ornate gemstone bibs. This '90s-inspired choker from DKNY shows how cool it is to match your accessories to your outfit! We saw a lot of color and print matching on the runways for spring 2015.

Another top statement-making style from the runways was the half-moon necklace. This necklace is from the Osklen line where designer Oskar Metsavaht joined art, nature, and architecture. This lush-foliage look created interest when paired with the designer's neutral line.

Bold Bags: Burberry Prorsum

Colorful statement bags dominated the spring 2015 runways. Our favorite styles are back for another season but with a fresh coat of paint, a few new embellishments, or other innovative details. Come springtime, watch for bright colors, round shapes, and fun twists on the clutch. Burberry Prorsum was one of the many shows that produced top-handled satchels. Not only will this shape be a popular one for spring 2015, but matching your bag to your outfit will be, too.

Futuristic Frames: Zac Posen

I think it's safe to say that designers are over the sunglass styles we've seen in the past. Spring 2015 runways were filled with fresh, futuristic styles. This season, Zac Posen—a designer known for dressing women in ultra-feminine, red-carpet–worthy creations—added an innovative edge to his shades with this oversized cat-eye shape.

Tied Belts: BCBG Max Azria

Designers created figuring-flattering looks by cinching the waist with tied fabric, making the tied belt the "It" accessory of the season. This is by far the easiest spring 2015 accessory trend to try. BCBG Max Azria accentuated the waist of this flowy silhouette to help show off womanly curves. Plus, the colored belts add a little color to the look.
