Winter is finally winding down (YAS!), so start saying sayonara to your tried-and-true scarves, beanies and stylish winter snow boots. Clearing winter style essentials out of your closet obviously means more space for an arsenal of brand-spankin’ new accessories that will put your spring style in the #OOTD hall of fame. But before you prepare your acceptance speech, there’s one thing you need to consider: budget (cue the dramatic sighs). Between your long list of must-have spring trends and killer spring break bathing suits, there are a lot of pieces vying for a limited amount of money. While this sounds like a recipe for disaster, there are plenty of incredibly stylish accessories out there that don’t require shelling out crazy cash. Case in point: this list of under-$100 statement sunglasses, trend-right mules, sophisticated suede jackets and more. Your wallet and your wardrobe will thank you.
1. ASOS Tall Order Mule Sandals ($55): To get your spring style started off on the right foot, it’s all in the shoes. Between the pastel mint hue and the hot-right-now mule silhouette, these playful peep-toes have you covered. Show them off with a pair of cropped flares or a pleated leather midi skirt.
2. J.Crew Curved Metal Hair Elastic ($14): With warm (and crazy) weather on the horizon, your tresses’ future is looking full of ponytails, updos and beautiful braids. While a plain-Jane hair elastic will certainly keep your locks on lock, why settle when you can rock this rose gold number? Hair on fleek.
3. & Other Stories Double Frame Sunglasses ($29): Protecting those peepers once those glorious sunny days are in full swing is non-negotiable. There’s no shortage of stunning styles to choose from this spring, and these retro frames are looking particularly appealing. For full-on old-world glamor, toss them on with high waisted shorts and an off-the-shoulder top.
4. Zara Convertible Leather Crossbody Bag ($60): If there’s room in your budget for only one new season bag, make it this two-in-one beauty. Go hands-free and tote your essentials crossbody, or hang on to the modern circular handle to show off its modern-meets-mid-century style.

6. Mango Contrast Ribbon Hat ($26): Don’t deprive your arsenal of flirty floral frocks, ruffled tops and rompers of the perfect partner this season: a wide-brimmed straw hat. What makes this chapeau so special, you ask? A fringe-flecked contrast ribbon that will add the extra oomph your #OOTDs have been after.
7. J.Crew Peacock Diamond Scarf ($60): Meet your spring wardrobe’s BFF. Perking up on- and off-duty outfits is what it does best, but you’ll swoon for its office chill and unpredictable weather eliminating skills. Pair it with turquoise statement earrings for maximum impact.
8. Vero Moda Belted Denim Duster Coat ($92): A tan trench might be classic, but your rad style sensibilities are so beyond that.

Serve up a side of ’70s vibes by teaming it with flares and a floppy hat. Bonus points for a perfectly knotted silk scarf.
9. S’well 9 oz. Galaxy Collection Water Bottle ($25): Parched skin? No thanks. This pretty petite bottle is small enough to slip into your everyday sac, but holds enough water to keep you hydrated and looking your best.
