Spring’s wildest printed pants and brightest suede jackets might be currently occupying our fashion daydreams, but when it comes to putting our money where our mouth is, wear-with-everything accessories frequently win out. If you’re in need of a little retail therapy and can’t quite bear the thought of buying filmy frocks and lightweight jackets this time of year, this list should provide ample fodder for your eBay hunts and lunch-break splurges until the temperature finally rises.

1. Luxe Messenger
A black cross-body bag with metallic hardware and beautiful texture instantly elevates any outfit.
2. Embellished Belt
Whether cinched tight over a boho maxi or worn loose and low over a rock 'n' roll mini, a skinny belt is a must-own add-on.
3. Wide-Brim Hat
Achieve movie-star glamour in seconds via a wide-brim hat. We love a camel or beige fedora for springtime.
4. Biker Boots
Whether your style is romantic or rebellious, there's a place for kick-ass boots in your wardrobe.
5. Patterned Scarf
Feeling bored with the contents of your closet? Incorporate a rich pattern into your look, and you'll be well on your way to standout style.
6. Black Mascara
While technically not a fashion accessory, black mascara was something we just had to include here. After all, voluminous lashes go with everything.
7. Layering Jewelry
Delicate baubles that can be worn on their own or layered with other pieces give every outfit the finishing touch it needs.
8. Neutral Pumps
Whether you opt for a classic style or a pair with a modern twist, neutral pumps elongate the leg and take you from the office to dinner in a sexy flash.
9. Tortoise Shades
Cat-eye and clear-framed sunnies are chic, but nothing is as versatile as a pair of menswear-inspired tortoise frames.
10. Gold Sandals
Nothing says jet-set fabulous like the perfect pair of gold, strappy sandals. They practically scream tropical vacation.
