Last year during New York Fashion Week, it was pretty clear that 2013 would be a year of big, bold, chunky accessories. And while most of us can’t afford anything straight off the runway, that doesn’t mean we can’t keep up with the latest fashion trends from NYC.

Check out some of our favorite bold accessories all for only $50 or less!

Maybe it’s the Run DMC fan in us, but nothing gets us more excited than a giant gold necklace. We’re talking a straight out of the 80’s, gold link, in your face with no apologies type piece here, and we aren’t ashamed to admit it. For $50, you can own this fab piece from Aqua Chunky. We heart the little pink crystals that add a bit of femininity to this masculine look.

If gold chains aren’t your thang, you can tone it down with this funky rhinestone wrap necklace from Urban Outfitters. The combination of spikey sparkles and the natural element of rope create a piece that is totally unique. We love a good sale, and at only $29.99, you can’t go wrong.

Let’s not forget those pretty hands of yours. Big rings are always in, and we love these incredibly affordable pieces from Forever 21. How about a black rosette with some bling? We love the gothic chic feel of this for winter. Or this cool cheetah ring, reminiscent of the always awesome Betsey Johnson? Gotta have it!

And finally, stock up on some bangles, which never go out of style, for less than $10 at H&M. Pair them with other pieces in your closet, a big chunky watch and you’re set for the night.

Being on a budget doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. There are so many great, affordable pieces out there, and one big statement piece goes way further than 10 small ones.–Sasha Huff
