Since most of my days are either spent at home or running quick errands, I'll be honest, I haven't had the time to put on the most "extra" of outfits like usual. Although I have the occasional fun purchase, I've mostly been gravitating towards comfortable basics that I can get the most wear out of, like matching knit sets and oversized sweaters. But recently, to liven things up a little, I've been adding a slew of accessories to my cart because they don't quite break the bank but make any outfit a little more fun and fashion-forward. 

I personally think that accessories can complete one's look, even if it's just a unique pair of earrings or a printed face mask, which is why I rounded up a list of my picks that you can shop right now and make your go-to basic outfit a little less basic. Whether it's a zoom meeting or you just want to add a little something to your grocery run, these affordable and cute accessories add a stylish element to any outfit. And the best part? They're all under $50. Keep scrolling to start shopping.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
