Whether they’re parading their latest glittering ensembles on the red carpet or rocking their cool street style on paparazzi walks, they provide countless sources of style inspo. From Hollywood’s finest to the models of the moment, these celebs are starting some major fashion trends, including statement pearls, mish-mash eclecticism and retro-chic accessories. Here are top five celebrity fashion and accessory trends we’re totally obsessed with at the moment.
1. Eclectic Mix & Matching

Mix and matching prints is no easy task, but Blake Lively seems to master the art of combining different textures and patterns quite perfectly. If you are not ready to commit just yet to an utterly eclectic and quirky-chic look from head to toe, you can still test the waters by opting to mix printed trims or accessories with a solid and a second print. But if you would describe yourself as possessing fashion pizzazz, then go ahead and rock a full-on mish-mash look, the Blake Lively way. Other celebrities to get inspired from: Eva Mendes and her retro-chic mixed print style and sleek and sophisticated Olivia Palermo, who also loves combining different prints.
2. Statement Pearl Jewelry

Pearls are back and it looks like they are no longer just dainty, discreet pieces of jewelry. In fact, quite the opposite – statement, oversize pearl jewelry pieces are having a major fashion moment and celebrities are all on board. Take actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, who wore an ultra-long, non-traditional pair of pearl earrings as she stepped in front of the cameras at the Golden Globes earlier this year. Whether you opt for a large and unique Baroque pearl or embrace lush and glossy strands and strands of pearls, this year’s celebrity fashion trends indicate that bigger is definitely better. Other ultra-chic alternatives: mother of pearl jewelry with a handmade, organic feel and uniquely colored pearls ranging from peacock to pink.
3. Blazer Dresses

Everyone from Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to the models of the moment seem to have one of these next numbers in their closet. We’re talking about the flirty yet sophisticated blazer-type dresses that everyone seems to love. Black and sleek, in pastel shades or in bold and rich hues, there’s only one rule when rocking one of these chic frocks: showing off those legs! Quick style tip: pick a dress that features statement buttons, be it metallic, XXL or engraved. Take Hailey Baldwin’s example, who opted for a baby blue number paired with white stiletto pumps as she stepped out for dinner in Hollywood a while back – and completed the outfit with a high pony that featured an on-tone 90s style scrunchie.
4. 80s Revival

The 90s are not the only era that has made a big comeback in fashion. While a few years back, celebs all over the world could not get enough of 70s flared cuts and boho prints, these days, it’s all about the bold and fun 80s. And Bella Hadid is a big fan! From high-waist, loose-fit denims paired with oversize belts and from primary colors that definitely don’t lack in pigmentation, the 80s are definitely back. Try out this trend yourself by opting for double denim outfits, cobalt blue, hot pink and ultra-saturated red, leopard print and color-blocking details. Bold floral prints and graphics, as well as colorful accessories (see Bella’s color-coordinated headphones) were also big in the pop era, adding a playful note to the aesthetic.
5. Retro Cat-Eye Shades

Continuing on the retro fashion-infused path, check out the latest craze when it comes to sunnies: ultra-slim cat-eye sunglasses that merge the classic 50s style with a grunge 90s spin. Pair these beauties with a crop top a la Kaia Gerber over here or wear your retro-inspired sheath dress in a relaxed silhouette while rocking slim cat-eyes. Complete the outfit with a nude lip for the day for a look that’s modern, fresh and youthful, with underlining nostalgia vibes.
