5 Luxury Accessories Worth Splurging On

Accessories very often make an outfit. They can be mixed and matched and when taken care of can last a lifetime. Here is the Trendy Gal list of luxury accessories worth splurging on:

An over the top statement necklace. I love the Kate Spade “Gardens of Paris” necklace. Not only is the sea green color perfect for spring, but it would look great with a white sun dress and it can even dress up a tee and jeans. The extender on it allows you to get the perfect fit. Extremely versatile and an attention grabber!



A classic leather belt. A black belt is a staple in any girls wardrobe and we adore this one by Tory Burch. The whipstitch detail provides a unique touch and we love the gleaming gold label that takes center stage. What a great way to cinch a dress or hold your pants up in style!


A great quality leather handbag. A woman’s purse can tell a lot about her… it holds all the items she deems necessary to live her busy life. Cell phone, keys, wallet, iPad… the list goes on! Having a bag that not only fits your essentials but looks great doing it is worth spending some dough on! I was recently introduced to the Stella and Lori brand and quickly fell in love with their hobo bags. Large enough to carry the essentials while still looking chic!



A good pair of heels. Looking great doesn’t have to be painful. The right pair of heels can elongate your legs, give you better posture and make you look pulled together, but don’t sacrifice your comfort! A good pair of heels is a great investment for your wardrobe. These Diane Von Furstenberg Anette shoes are high, but not too high and come in a variety of colors.



A bright red lipstick. Perfect for when a classy lady spends a night on the town. Bold and confident, a red lip is strong and shows everyone who’s in charge. It also doesn’t hurt when the lipstick comes in a fancy holder like this one by Guerlain. This lipstick interacts with the light and creates a pout of perfection.
