I’m not gonna lie—I was very much looking forward to writing this story. Designer accessories make me happy and I’d gladly think about them and talk about them until the cows come home. That said, many designer accessories are wildly expensive, and I agree that $450 is a lot to spend on something so small, but it’s arguably all relative. Designer item prices are what they are, and under-$450 is considerably less than $1k, so I suppose that’s one way of looking at it.
What I love about designer accessories is that they add a special, “fashion-y” touch to even the most plain of outfits, and they pretty much always get compliments. I supposed accessories are my way of getting away with wearing simple outfits while still looking like I tried. Obviously, you don’t need designer accessories to do that, but if you are in the market to splurge (but not too much), I sourced some of my favorite ones. Keep scrolling for some of the best finds from Prada, Gucci, Loewe, and all of the other highly covetable brands you know and love.
