Accessories are where fashion gets really fun; all of those trinkets, bracelets, cufflinks, necklaces, earrings, rings, anklets, and eye patches are where you can really take a few chances. Even the most conservative and boring blazer or skirt becomes interesting when paired with a truly expressive accessory. Enhance your collection with our roundup of designer accessories, which features some instant classics from Alexander McQueen and Tory Burch, two bracelets from Marc Jacobs, and everything you can think of from kate spade.
Tory Burch Women's Sunglasses

Expires: May 31
Is It Worth It?: Tory Burch is one of the hottest designers around right now, and the label excels at accessories and jewelry — any smaller item where the details really count. Case in point: the telltale hint of green and yellow on the frame of these sunglasses provide just the right accent to that classic Marcello Mastroianni La Dolce Vita style.
While Tory Burch comes pre-approved by celebrities like Beyonce and Cameron Diaz, there are other designer sunglasses on sale at Sunglass Hut, from the likes of Prada and Tom Ford. Moreover, SmartBargains currently takes up to 74% off a selection of Michael Kors men's and women's fashion sunglasses with prices starting at $49.99.
Alexander McQueen Men's Puma Rabble Sneakers
Store: Nieman Marcus
Price: $97 with free shipping via coupon code "MAYFS"
Lowest By: $6
Expires: June 5
Is It Worth It?: Alexander McQueen's styles were famously ornate, so it's startling to see the more stripped-down look of these Puma sneakers. The lovely extra touches though, like the cushioned leather insoles and gunmetal eyelets, all fit in with McQueen's high level of perfection.
In addition to the McQueen kicks, Neiman Marcus takes up to 50% off women's apparel, shoes, and accessories or 33% off men's apparel, shoes, and accessories. Plus, get free shipping via coupon code "MAYFS".

It features a goldtone, rose goldtone, or silvertone charm, which will generate just the right attention-getting jingle-jangle. Note that it's currently on backorder with an estimated ship date of June 4.
