Hats, hats, and more hats were absolutely everywhere on fall runways. At Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, and Gucci, they almost looked like space-age helmets and would melt the hearts of anyone with an exceedingly futuristic style. Christian Dior and Valentino went in a decidedly different direction, sending their interpretations of the classic bucket hat down their runways. And at Tom Ford and Fendi, fuzzy hats that could rival your favorite teddy bear took center stage.
Belt Bag It
Belt bags aren't going anywhere anytime soon but they are getting a whole lot more fun. At Emilio Pucci, they took shape in the form of a colorful belt with a dangling satchel or two, while at Chanel, they appeared in pink tweed form. Hermès and Jacquemus also showed their own playful takes.

Classic flap bags with metallic logo clasps dominated runways and defined what is perhaps the biggest bag trend of the season. Burberry, Christian Dior, Celine, Givenchy, and Balenciaga were among the brands to champion it, so go ahead and buy yourself that designer bag you've always wanted. Now's the time.
While boots for fall are nothing new, this season brought a wave of styles that run the gamut, meaning there will be something for literally everyone. At Ulla Johnson, Brandon Maxwell, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh animal print boots dominated; at R13, Prada, and Alexander McQueen, it was all about chunky soles and punky details; Dion Lee, Rejina Pyo, and Michael Kors all showed lace-up styles; ans Balenciaga, Brock Collection, Staud, and Zimmermann took their boots in a 70s direction with bright floral prints.
