Each season, I always look to the Net-a-Porter trends presentation that is shared with editors for an inside look at which runway trends will be big in the coming season and which ones retailers are actually buying into. There are a number that made the cut for spring 2022, but there is one that was particularly eye-catching: clickbait accessories.
Net-a-Porter highlighted the trend, noting that must-have accessories stand out as something that their audience has a huge thirst for. If you’re wondering what clickbait accessories include, think anything from epic new bags like the Y2K-inspired Balenciaga Cagole to cult collaborations with celebrity stylist Mimi Cuttrell’s collection with By Far or JW Anderson’s sneakers with Converse to colorful ‘90s throwback hair claws that are making a huge comeback. The main takeaway is that all of these pieces are conversation starters that demand a bit more attention than your standard staples. Ahead, the clickbait accessories to add to your closet for spring.
