It used to be that the idea of designer accessories under $100 was an oxymoron, but these days it’s increasingly not the case. Personally, I’m polyamorous–when it comes to my accessories that is–because if it looks fabulous, I don’t really care what name is on it. But that doesn’t mean I’ll turn my nose down at a great piece from big name designer, especially when it doesn’t break the bank.
Here, I’ve scoured the web and found ten really hot designer accessories all under $100 that will make perfect holiday gifts for designer-name lovers or equal-opportunity accessorizers like me.
Kate Spade pave door knocker earrings. ($78 at Saks)
The holidays are the perfect excuse to go a little more bold with your jewelry. These earrings are classic enough that you’ll wear them year after year, but big enough that they won’t get lost against your holiday wardrobe.
Tory Burch pearl bangle ($95 at ShopBop)
Pearls are hot this year and show no signs of going away, but they’re often not as modern as I like. This b
Diane von Furstenberg moon and stars knit gloves ($98 at Saks)
I love these playful gloves that even have an index finger slit for texting–or checking to see how many people liked your photo of your new gloves after you post it on Instagram. Ha.
Fallon classique choker necklace ($100 at ShopBop)
Ever since I saw a necklace from Falllon on our Editor Liz, I’ve been obsessed with this high-end, contemporary jewelry brand. This necklace tops out right at $100, but it’s such a versatile all-season piece that you can wear it dressed up or down. Hurry, there are only a few of these left!
Michael Kors statement brilliance bangle ($98.98 at Nordstrom)
I’m a sucker for rose gold, and when you add shimmery diamonds, well, this is an easy sell. This bangle is also available in yellow gold, and even better, it’s on sale, which means you might just be able to rationalize both.
Coach wristlet ($65 at Nordstrom)
Sometimes you don’t need to carry very much, or you just want to be able to grab your essentials out of your big bag and go, and this wristlet is perfect both times. And the color is amazing. Make it extra special and pop a gift card in there so the lucky recipient can shop after the holidays too.
Alexis Bittar Aura Tear earrings ($85 at ShopBop)
These are such a fabulous twist on those ubiquitous hoops, with just a bit of added bling which doesn’t put them over the top for everyday use. They’ll definitely work for holiday parties and date nights too.
Rebecca Minkoff Clandestine blade pendant ($68 at ShopBop)
I love the pervasive edge in Rebecca Minkoff’s jewelry line and this pendant is no exception. It’s a fab length and size for my own fall and winter uniform of solid sweaters and leggings.
Chan Luu beaded bracelet($55 at ShopBop)
If you (or your lucky recipient) has been chomping at the bit for a Chan Luu bracelet but just can’t swallow the price, this is an affordable but still fantastic option. Beautiful on its own or layered with other pieces.
Kate Spade New York Six Month Scarf ($98 at Zappos)
The stripes and color combo (love navy and black!) of this scarf make it one you can wear all the time, which is exactly what I tend to do with scarves this season.
