Even the simplest rings will add a bit of shine to your appearance. Rings come in many different colors, but my personal favorites are the classic gold and silver. Rings, especially ones that are gold and silver, will go well with any outfit.

You don't even have to wear rings on your fingers, as you can repurpose them by hanging them from necklaces instead! Also, no one will be able to tell if you buy a ring for cheaper than it actually looks, which is why this affordable fashion accessory is necessary if you want to complete your appearance.

2. Thin Scarves

Thin scarves, especially if they are bright and colorful, are perfect for making your outfit appear more vibrant. They are a great accessory because you can buy them for reasonably cheap prices without having that ruin the quality of the scarf.

My favorite material is silk for these thin scarves because it is very comfortable. You can wear these scarves around your neck or you can use them to cover your hair. In addition to being incredibly fashionable, scarves are essential because they can also provide sun protection for your neck or head.

3. Wide Belts

Wide belts can be used in a variety of ways and you can often buy them for reasonably cheap prices. You can wear them around a waistcoat or you can loop them through jeans or dress pants. You can also use a belt to attach coin purses or pouches if your outfit doesn't have any pockets.

Usually, a black leather belt will be the most common and easiest to afford, especially since you don't have to purchase designer belts to pull off this look. Wide belts are a great fashion accessory because it helps cinch the waist and emphasize the shape of your body. 

4. Colourful Barrettes

These hair clips are very cute and add more color to your hair, which can help to complement your outfit. You can find colorful barrettes at almost every fashion accessory store. They are extremely cheap and do not require a lot of styling to use properly.

You can wear them with any outfit, whether it be with darker clothing or colorful floral patterns. Colorful barrettes are an essential fashion accessory because they can help clear your hair away from your face while also completing your appearance.

Originally, bucket hats were only used by farmers and fishermen to protect themselves from the rain, but they have recently made a comeback on social media for fashion purposes.

Bucket hats are perfect for looking cute during the summer months, while also keeping the sun out of your face. You can find them really cheap at many clothing stores in several different types of material. My favorite material for bucket hats is corduroy because it is very comfortable and can be worn with almost any outfit.

6. Pin-Back Button

Pin-back buttons are extremely cheap and easy-to-find accessories that are a perfect way to show off your personality. You can attach pin-back buttons to almost any article of clothing.

Some examples are the lapel of a blazer or jacket, a headband, or a hat. Even though many people have band logos displayed on the front of their pin-back buttons, it is also very easy to customize your own if you can't find one that best suits your personality. 

7. Shawls

Shawls are made out of comfortable wool and are usually worn over the shoulders or the head. Shawls are the perfect accessory if you want to remain warm but still fashionable.

Many people wear shawls to accentuate a casual style. However, they can also be worn on top of sleeveless formal shirts or dresses to keep you warm. While some shawls can be relatively expensive, you can easily find cheaper ones on Etsy or Amazon to complete your outfit. 

8. Round Sunglasses

Sunglasses are an excellent fashion accessory that you can wear when it's sunny outside. In addition to protecting your eyes from harmful sun rays, sunglasses are a great fashion accessory that you must have to complete your appearance.

Round sunglasses have recently made a comeback on social media, inspired by vintage spectacles that were popularized in the 60s. The round frame helps to accentuate the rest of your facial features and provides some symmetry. You can easily get round sunglasses with wireframes for very cheap prices at any eyeglasses store. 

9. Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are incredibly fashionable, especially if you are wearing a darker-colored outfit. They are also are very useful in a variety of situations. For example, many motorcyclists and cyclists will find fingerless gloves helpful when gripping the handlebars. Another reason why fingerless gloves are useful is that they allow easy access if your phone has a touch screen while keeping the rest of your hand warm.

There are plenty of different materials for a variety of purposes. Lace gloves are perfect for formal occasions, leather gloves are perfect for biking, and cotton or knitted gloves are perfect for generally keeping your hands warm. Fingerless gloves can be bought for reasonably cheap prices and they are an excellent way to complete your appearance. 

10. Scrunchies

Scrunchies were first popularized in the 1980s, but with the resurgence of the "VSCO girls" on social media, they have recently made a comeback. Scrunchies have an elastic ring on the inside of the ruffled fabric. This makes scrunchies a super fashionable accessory that is also very functional, as it helps to keep your hair out of your face.

You can also wear scrunchies around your wrist if you feel like having your hair loose. Scrunchies can be made with almost any fabric, but the cheapest and most comfortable material is probably cotton. You can even try sewing your own scrunchies at home! 

Overall, these extra accessories are absolutely essential for completing your look, and they are extremely affordable and easy to pair with any outfit. Now go on out there and feel free to express yourself!
