This season, some fashionable movements to watch for are maximalism (i.e., more is more) and comeback trends from decades past. Think over-the-top pieces like bold brooches, statement-making hair accessories and items that pull cues from trends of the 1970s, '80s and '90s. We’ve rounded up some of our fave Etsy offerings that reflect these trends—these fab finds guarantee we'll be at the top of our fashion game this fall! —Vita Daily
silk scarves. Proof positive that vintage-inspired silk scarves are one of the most versatile and playful trends this season? Searches for this hot-ticket item have popped almost 30 per cent in the last three months, compared to the same time period last year.
brooches. Time to raid your grandma's jewelry box—or click onto Etsy! Brooches are making a comeback for fashionistas of all ages; the ultimate maximalist accessory, they make it super-easy to elevate any autumn outfit with pops of texture, shapes and colours.
hair accessories. Moving beyond the '90s-inspired scrunchie, this trend is evolving to include modern versions of barrettes, headbands and hairpins. Luckily, Etsy sellers offer a plethora of these hair-raising baubles for sale.
pearl hoop earrings. With both pearls and hoop earrings showing up everywhere this year, it’s no surprise that the freshest jewelry trend combines both styles for the ultimate fall look.
charm bracelets. We remember collecting plastic versions of these in the '80s and now nostalgic charm bracelets are coming back, but with a grownup revamp. This season's bracelets feature chunkier chains and elevated pendants, making them a modern jewelry staple.
patchwork pieces. The quilt-esque style that took over the '90s is having another moment: on Etsy, searches for patchwork items have increased 5 per cent in just the last three months! Etsy sellers are mixing-and-matching fabrics and patterns like suede, floral prints and denim to create eye-catching pieces with a modern flair. (Bonus: for shoppers looking for an authentic retro piece, there are thousands of vintage options to choose from.)
suits. No longer reserved for the corporate office, pantsuits are showing up anywhere and everywhere, in styles ranging from feminine to masculine (hello again shoulder pads), and handmade to vintage.
urban cowgirl. Southwestern style has taken over our homes, and now it’s making its way into our closets. Channel your inner cowgirls (and boys) with sophisticated fringe, rancher hats and embellished denim.
for the guys: bolo ties, vintage rings and necklaces. The latest jewelry trends for men? Etsy searches for bolo ties, vintage rings and necklaces are all on the rise, guaranteeing that these are sure-bet trends your man ought to rock.
