Affordable Accessories That Look Totally Luxe

Frankly, I like to put less effort into curating my outfits when the temperature starts to spike. In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “I’m gonna merchandise it up. Style it up with some shoes.” I love putting the attention on key accessories rather than the clothes because I tend to wear the same cycle of outfits each season.

Accessories can make a real difference in your wardrobe. But don’t think that you have to pay an arm and a leg to look good.

These are the best luxe accessories that won’t break the bank:

The Trendy Bag

Sometimes, it really is all about the bag. Right now, smaller bags are shining, so going for a cute little top-handle bag, or something with hardware detail will take you through countless perfect outfits.

Ladylike Pearls

These are not your grandma’s pearls…or maybe they are, but totally reworked and modernized. Pearl accessories always add a little bit of sophistication to any look.


It’s all about texture baby! We’re sticking to faux-crocodile here, but it can still be very stylish and look expensive. Get the most bang for your buck by getting it in a neutral color.

Scarves Galore

A silky scarf will always make you look and feel more elevated. You can even knot one around any bag to instantly add some flair.

Hair Wear

Oh yes, leave all the talking to your hair. I’ve always said, as long as your hair is done, who cares about the rest? This time, it’s true. Hair accessories are so fun right now.
