10 Little Bits of Luxury: Designer Items that Are Small in Size and Big on Style

Gucci Airpod case anyone?

By: Taylor Ford

It’s pretty convenient (and slightly scary) that tax-return season falls right after Fashion Month, when you have trends and designer looks on the brain. Consider dropping your returns on head-to-toe luxury drip, while getting the most bang for your buck doing it. From a Gucci Airpod case to Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen goodies for under $100 (no joke) small pieces from ultra-luxe maisons make for an exciting addition to your accessories cache. So, before you instinctually hit "dropdown, Price: Low to High," we’ve curated ten little bits of luxury to shop now and feel no buyer’s remorse about later.


Saint Laurent Rive Droite Zebra Coffee Mug in Ceramic, $90

Divy the cost of this on-trend striped mug for every time you use it, and it’s less than the price of your caffeine addiction.

Stella McCartney Mia Remembering High Waisted Briefs, $75

Flower power panties because sustainability is always sexy.

Alexander McQueen Skull Sport Socks, $85

McQueen’s punk skull socks are best to be displayed with a strappy heel.

Alexander Wang Logo Elastic Bra, $145

For those days you don’t want to wear a bra, this doubles as a sporty chic top on its own.

Balenciaga BB Hair Elastic, $175

Demna once sold a leather scrunchie for $220, so consider this pony-holder a steal.

Gucci Ophidia GG Airpods Case, $250

Is there anything more 2020 than a GG Airpods case? Wear now, and hold onto this as a relic of the times later.

The Marc Jacobs Sash Belt, $250

An outfit-making sash worthy of a title and a crown.

Bottega Veneta Card Case, $250

This is how you get your hands on #NewBottega’s coveted woven leather every day.

Fendi Beige Canvas Bucket Hat, $530

Think about the sun protection with this Insta-baddie worthy bucket.

JW Anderson Crystal Embellished Harness, $690

OK – we’re not saying you *need* a crystal harness, but you might still have some funds left over.
