Spring Accessories Under $40

March 23, 2011 § 1 Comment

Now that you’ve discovered some new outfits in your own closet (see post – What’s old is new again), I thought posting some of my top accessory picks for spring 2011 would be another inspiration for you to either look at what you currently have to wear or to buy something new.   The best thing about my picks?   They are all UNDER $40.    It is true!  You really can add cute, fun, trendy new items to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

1.  A hat is an essential in any wardrobe.  If you don’t own one, you should get one.  This one from Nordstrom comes in a variety of colors.  You’ll be able to wear it clear through summer.  (Collection XII crochet floppy straw hat, $28 – www.nordstrom.com)

2. Bangles are big.  These bangles from Alex and Ani are truly my favorite.  I own them and love them all piled up on my arm.  The more the better.  Remember that old fashion rule about not mixing your metals?  That no longer applies.  Mix away.  It even looks better that way.  (Alex and Ani expandable wire bracelets, Set of 3, $38  – www.zeeberry.com)

3. I’ve had my eye on these platform wedges for a while.  They can go with almost everything and they have a price that is right up my alley.  (Cognac Filigree Wicker Platform Wedges $34 – www.lulus.com)

4.  Layering necklaces is the craze.  If you don’t know how to layer different necklaces then this necklace is for you.  It is already layered for you.  Throw on with it a pendant necklace from your jewelry box and you’re all set to go.  (Fancy drape necklace, $6.80 – www.forever21.com)

5.  Spring is the time to look for some new sunglasses and these don’t disappoint.    These tortoise-shell frames have a slight cat eye shape, which is hot this season.  They have a trendy, yet classic, appeal. (Tortoise-shell small cat eye glasses, $32 – www.topshop.com)

6.  Get your floral on this season with a scarf.  A scarf is a great accessory, even during warmer months.  This one is a must on those cool evenings. (Foulard scarf, $35.92 – www.jcpenney.com)   

7.  Nothing says spring quite like turquoise.  These are a nice size earring which will garner attention and many compliments.  (Sky drop earrings, $32 – www.anthropologie.com)

8.  Loving the envelope clutch.  The envelope clutch is the latest style in clutch bags.  I love this one from ebags because of the look and the price.  I would also consider one in a great color like coral or blue.  (B. Collective Laurello envelope clutch, $33.60 – www.ebags.com)
