There are some things I just simply won't splurge on. Most things these days actually, due to a tight budget and a serious latte habit, but generally I try to stay away from spending too much on accessory trends. Between being a creature of habit and rarely changing my jewelry to my avoidance of all uncomfortable shoe styles, I am not one to spend in the accessory department.
This, of course, doesn't mean I avoid trends. I love a good trend just as much as the next girl. But since I'm not willing to spend too much on a trendy piece, I'm constantly on the hunt for more affordable accessories that still keep me tapped into the fashion world.
If this at all resonates with you, then you've come to the right place. I've rounded up the best on-trend accessories that are still affordable below. From cozy patterned socks to a seasonal statement bag, there's an option for everyone below.
