These 3 Accessories Are Trending on Pinterest—and That Means Something
Are accessories your weakness? Then it's highly likely you already own the most important add-ons for S/S 17—it is May, after all. There's been no shortage of fresh inspiration in this department for 2017, so a process of restocking has been fairly non-negotiable: All of the rules have been thrown out, and girls are flourishing their outfits with some of the most unexpected pieces. Basket bags—the kind you'd usually use for a picnic, or when emulating Jane Birkin—have become everyday holdalls. Sandal trends range from the insane (PVC, anyone?) to the seriously sensible (never before have these simple slingbacks been so popular).

The database has been crunching the numbers to decipher which niche accessory trends are really showing signs of catching alight. The following three key pieces have jumped up in popularity since the beginning of the year, so even if they're not an existing feature in your wardrobe, it's a dead cert you'll see plenty of them throughout the season.
