1. Baker Boy hats

The autumn 2018 brought with it a trend of the hat that we have not seen for a while: baker boy's hats. This fun accessory is available in various colors and multiple variations of style, from the lowest to the most sought after, and will surely give a touch of jazz to any ensemble of cold weather.
Personally, I associate the caps of the baker boy with a more artistic style, but they can also be more attenuated, depending on the specific cap you choose and what you decided to wear it.
How to wear the Baker boy caps:
There are so many ways to wear these cute hats, but I'm partial to the idea of wearing one with a knitted sweater, elephant-style jeans, a comfortable wool peacoat, a simple scarf and gloves for a nice preppy look 2000s.
Alternatively, you can wear a baker boy's cap with a turtleneck, a maxi skirt, combat boots, a long scarf with fringes and a hobo bag for a serious boho atmosphere.
2. Earrings of artistic declaration
Products: (Upper line, L-R) Revolution, mango, mango (lower line, L-R) COS and other stories
Earrings of artistic declaration it started popping up on my fashion radar during the summer, but they sure have continued to fall significantly! And although they may not seem like the most wearable trend, there are so many variations that you're sure to find a pair that works for your lifestyle (and it does not hurt your ears!).
Moreover, this chic trend can elevate almost any look, so do not be shy to put on a pair if your dress is relaxed or elegant.
How to wear Statement Arty earrings:
I like the idea of wearing a pair of these daring earrings for day with a simple dress consisting of a tight-fitting top in solid color and dark washed jeans with loose hair and natural texture.
For a glam evening look, wear your favorite LBD, put your hair back in an elegant ponytail and go over a bright lipstick or shiny lip gloss; you're sure to turn your head all night!
3. Hair bows

Hair flakes will always be in style, but this fall has brought us so many variations on this cute accessory that surely feel brand new!
If you already love the trend, feel free to experiment with a printed or colored version. However, if you are a little more uncertain – or just prefer a more classic look – you can not really go wrong with timeless black.
How to wear hair bows:
Hair bows go well with just about anything you can think of, so they are almost impossible to mess up! If you choose to put your hair in half a tail with a thinner version, satin for one timeless feminine lookor choose a velvety texture for a luxury, glamor atmosphere, there's a hair bow out there for every style and budget!
Keep in mind that if you choose a bow attached to an elastic for hair and have thicker hairIt is a good idea to first tie the hair back as you normally would with a simple black rubber band, and then wrap the bow elastic very loose above it. This will prevent the elastic band from coming loose (which is important when considering that they are usually more expensive than simple styles).
4. Fanny Packs
Products: (Top, L-R) Mango, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom (Bottom Row, L-R) Nordstrom, Nordstrom
While baby carriers have been "in" for a while now, this trend shows no signs of slowing down! Also, they're perfect for days when you're wearing bulky outdoor suits and want to avoid the annoying hassle of having your bag slip down your shoulders yet.
Whether you go with a super trendy snake print style or an iteration of seasonally appropriate fake shearling, there's no shortage of baby carriers to choose from in the fall.
How to wear baby carriers:
Baby carriers it looks great worn on the waist or on the hips, so it depends a lot on the specific one you choose and on which parts of your body you would like to accentuate. Also, many people like wearing them over their shoulder, which is a great option if you're not enough on board with the trend, but do not want to give up altogether.
For a sporty but logical look that you can wear for class, choose a baby carrier and a suit of the same brand, each of which bears the logo of that brand in the foreground. If a dressier, tailor-made aesthetics it is more up your alley, wearing a simpler baby carrier in place of a belt, or at the hips with jeans or waist with a classic blazer (and a matching skirt or trousers for extra style stitches).
5. Claw clip
Products: (Upper line, L-R) Anthropologie, H & M, H & M (Bottom row, L-R) Nordstrom, Nordstrom
Although you may have previously deposited claw clip under the "basic, all-day" category of hair accessories, those offered by retailers for the autumn of 2018 are really all different.
Not only is this trend super-styled right now, but it's also very, really low-maintenance – just roll your hair up in a bun or pin into a ponytail or half-tail and forget about the rest of the day, like the " "clip" teeth will keep everything in place!
How to wear the Claw Clips:
Claws clip they tend to work best with casual clothes; however, there are many options that come in fun colors and / or with slightly less informal embellishments, and will work with slightly more clothes.
If you have a more elaborate or more intricate claw clip style, try to contrast it with simpler pieces like sneakers, a T-shirt and sneakers for a Look inspired by the years 90. Alternatively, if you have a solid or colored version, wear it with a fun printed blouse and a dark pencil skirt for a eccentric look, but preppy.
