I don’t know about you, but I love getting dressed in the summer. I can easily rock bright colors (it must be because of my tan, right?) and reach for whimsical, playful accessories without a second thought (the more fruit-motifs, the better). In a way, my summer style just exudes pure happiness. So, having the ability to extend that sartorial cheer into the cooler, darker fall months is always welcome. Here, find 20 accessories under $45 that you can wear through the end of summer...and well into September, October and November. Remember, happy vibes only.

L.L. Bean

1. L.L. Bean Boat and Tote, Large

An L.L. Bean classic that works for carrying around beach towels and a laptop. Uh, just not at the same time.

BUY IT ($35)


2. Ganni Leopard-print Satin Headband

Surely by now you know that leopard is a neutral—and it’s meant to be worn year-round.

BUY IT ($25)

The Outnet

3. Kenneth Jay Lane Gold-Plated Cuff

Looks just as good with bare arms (and off-the-shoulder dresses) as it does peeking out from under the cuff of a button-down or cashmere sweater.

BUY IT ($75; $33)


4. ASOS DESIGN Natural Rattan Bucket Bag in Black

Black rattan is much easier to bridge seasons than the traditional shade of tan. Plus, the faux-croc detailing makes this one fancy enough for big nights out (i.e. 7 PM dinner reservations).

BUY IT ($48; $25)

Off Fifth

5. Vince Camuto Kresseya Embossed-Snakeskin Print Ankle-Strap Sandals

Don’t be shy, show these shoes off with your best faded denim. Whether that’s in the form of cut-off shorts or frayed-edge skinny jeans is totally up to you.

BUY IT ($130; $30)

Urban Outfitters

6. UO Mila Aviator Sunglasses

These are super classic aviators—green lenses, gold frames and all—so you’ve got full permission to wear them through February.

BUY IT ($18)


7. The Odells Adjustable Ear Loop Reusable Face Mask

We’re pretty certain a face mask is going to be your most important accessory in the fall too. So stock up on a few styles that are cute and comfy. We like that this one from Anthropologie features adjustable ear loops and a contrast trim—so you can easily match it to your outfit.

BUY IT ($10)

The Outnet

8. Shashi Laila 18-Karat Gold-Plated Tasseled Beaded Bracelet

Like a breath of fresh air for your wrist, this beaded bracelet will look great layered with a gold or silver watch.

BUY IT ($56; $34)

Urban Outfitters

9. UO Sasha Kitten Heel

We’d suggest pairing these walkable kitten heels with short summer dresses now, and in a few months with one of fall’s most obvious trends: plaid anything. (Before you ask, yes, you can wear open-toe shoes until November.)

BUY IT ($39; $34)


10. Zaxie Draped Crystal Chandelier Earrings

Shimmering hoop earrings obviously look great with silk camis and basic tanks but don’t underestimate their power when it comes to dressing up a turtleneck, too.

BUY IT ($42)


11. Casetify Custom iPhone Case (11 Pro)

Indeed, your phone case is considered an accessory. Especially when it’s as cute as this custom version that can be jazzed up with up to 12 characters—for no extra cost.

BUY IT ($45)


12. Madewell Bandana

Tie it in your hair as an impromptu headband at the beach, then wrap it around the handle of your fave handbag for a lil’ daily flair come October.

BUY IT ($13)

Urban Outfitters

13. UO Calistoga Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Looks good with eyelet, denim, leather, chunky knits...you get the point.

BUY IT ($16)


14. H&M Slingbacks

Haven’t you heard? Ballet flats are having a moment and that includes this pointy-toe, slingback style.

BUY IT ($18)


15. 1901 Bryn Ballet Flat

Although, if you do prefer a classic ballet flat, here it is for only $36.

BUY IT ($90; $36)


16. Anthropologie Bette Braided Bag Strap

It might seem minimal, but don’t question the transformational capacity that a colorful bag strap can have on even the most basic black or white crossbody.

BUY IT ($28)


17. H&M Felted Wool Hat

At this price, you won’t be distraught when you inevitably sit on this hat. P.S. It will look oh-so-cute with a denim jacket.

BUY IT ($30)


18. PrintFresh Blue + Blush Fade Velvet Medium Pouch

This tie-dye pouch is far too sweet to be relegated as a makeup case (though it would work for that, too). Instead, make it your go-to clutch for casual outdoor dinners through October 31.

BUY IT ($28)

Local Eclectic

19. Family Gold Solid Gold Chain Ring

A ring so dainty, you’ll never want to take it off. Luckily, it’s 9K solid gold so you can confidently wear it in the shower or while washing the dishes, without worrying about ruining your new ring.

BUY IT ($45)

Lirika Matoshi

20. Lirika Matoshi Tulle Daisy Socks

Wear them around your house now (instead of shoes)...and keep wearing them as you WFH through 2021.

BUY IT ($32)
