Get Gorgeous Homecoming Accessories on a Budget
by Cassandra Morris
The accessories you choose to go with your homecoming dress can give your whole look a style boost and really make your outfit your own. While we’d all love to make a grand entrance into the dance wearing real jewels like our favorite celebs do, that’s not always in every homecoming girl’s budget. But, there are plenty of accessories that have a high fashion look with a bargain price tag. Check out my favorites here!
Twice as Nice
Why settle for one row of jewels when you can get two? This double row rhinestone chain bracelet packs in the bling without pushing your budget. It’s only $12, and mirrors the look of real diamonds! My favorite thing about this piece is that it’s a classic design, so it can be worn season after season without getting played out.
I love these teardrop crystal earrings- and not just because they give off the “real jewel” vibe. They’re similar to the oversize teardrop earrings that Taylor Swift loves to wear on the red carpet, but these are only $15! They have just the right amount of sparkle and dangle, and would look adorable peeking out from under a wavy half-up ‘do.
It’ll be our Secret
Instead of spending a week’s worth of babysitting money on a professional salon up do, spend a small amount on a few hairpins and have your friend do your hair instead. These totally unique pearl and crystal pins will make any homecoming hairstyle look trendy and fresh, and at only $20, they’re practically a steal.
Now That’s Versatile
The true test of a good bargain buy is whether you can wear it again and again. This bold metallic bow clutch is just $24, and is versatile enough to be worn with a semi-formal homecoming gown or with a pair of jeans and a cute top for a night out with friends. Bonus: you can carry it as a clutch or use the cute chain link strap tucked inside!
Let ‘em Have Glitter!
Shoes are always hard to shop for. A super cheap pair will cut up your feet and fall apart. Buy a pricey shoe to wear once and it feels like a waste. The solution? These glitter peep toe heels. They’re $39 and have a leather insole, which means they’re not only affordable and comfortable; they’re made with material that lasts. It’s the ultimate budget shoe that doesn’t skimp on anything, especially the glam!
