You’ve heard it time and time again: A little goes a long way. And when it comes to refreshing your wardrobe, a little can often go even further. Here are some must-have accessories, all under $50, to mix things up in your closet:
Isabel Marant Gold Casablanca Ring Set
Sometimes the best accessories are the smallest ones. These dainty gold rings on sale from Isabel Marant are just that—small enough to become an everyday staple, plentiful enough to add an element of cool to every outfit. Stack them, split them, rearrange them—the possibilities are endless, and you’ll never get tired of them.
Bee Embossed Pendant Necklace
Is there anyone in an Instagram-worth restaurant not wearing a pendant necklace around her neck? The trend is no accident. With an alluring design to satisfy the deepest of V-necks, and a coin to add a desirably vintage feel, it’s an alluring statement piece. The bee on this chain is perfect for summer, as are the clothes you’ll be wearing it with: breezy wrap dresses or a plain white tank are ideal.
Coach Rexy Shoe Patch
What exactly is a shoe patch, you ask? This little accessory slides right onto your laces to give those plain white sneakers, or any laced kicks for that matter, some personality. A T-Rex is the fiercest option from Coach, but you can also go for a lightning bolt, unicorn, skull or bow—stock up on a few so you can switch them out, depending on your mood.
See by Chloé Multicolor Bomb iPhone 6/7/8 Case
Even if your phone isn’t at the center of your life, a stylish case can still be an important accessory. This one by Chloé is guaranteed to elevate your look and make your style feel fresh, even if this is the only change you make to it. The cheery yellow color and explosive pattern will brighten up your day—or your mirror-selfies—wherever you are.
Vans Clear Cut Visor
The visor is making a comeback, and it’s easy to see why: The open top keeps your head cool and lets your hair fly free however you style it, while the brim keeps you in control of your tan. Stay racer-sharp with this one from Vans: The signature checkerboard pattern and thermoplastic shell give it a ’80s vibe, while the simple black-and-white color scheme keeps it versatile. Toss it in your beach bag to bring some skater-chic looks to the waters, or add it to your early-evening wardrobe: Think ripped, black skinny jeans and a loose black T-shirt.
Squared Thick Frame Sunglasses
Experience la vie en rose through these pink-lensed sunglasses. The thick square frame brings to mind retro eras—is it the ’60s or the ’00s?—but possesses a modern feel nonetheless. They’re fashionable in a shape that can satisfy any face. These are undeniably statement glasses, but a flattering pair. The look can change with how you pair it: Add a head- or neck-scarf, and you might as well hop into a convertible à la Brigitte Bardot.
Loeffler Randall Set of Leopard-Print Satin and Lamé Hair Ties
The hardest decision you’ll have to make with these Loeffler Randall hair ties is whether it’s a leopard or lamé day. Both would work great with any outfit, not to mention give it some very on-trend ’90s energy. Or have it all—these ties are also great wrist candy when not in your hair, so why limit yourself?
Multicolored Stripe Hairband
Speaking of stylish hair accessories, when just a simple tie won’t cut it, give yourself a French Riviera flourish with this scarf-like headband. Its bright colors and bow give it a flirty twist, and the white stripes are crucial in making it more versatile: It can be the cherry on top of those summer whites or simply a bonus to a favorite sundress.
Coach Metallic Shoe Laces
You may be asking yourself, Is a shoelace really an accessory? And here’s the answer: Yes. A metallic shoelace can make an outfit shine, and with these available in either pink, gold or silver, they can match with most color combinations. Plus, anything with eyelets will accommodate them, so experiment.
Paul Smith Striped Stretch-Cotton Mid-Calf Socks
Those who are always checking the sock market understand that there’s no feeling better than a luxurious new pair. These vibrant Paul Smiths are mid-calf and multicolored, and will add a pop of fun to any outfit. And they’ll work with loafers, sneakers, hotel slippers or, yes, brighten up some Birkenstocks.
