Even if you don’t have the budget (or the time!) to shop for a new holiday outfit, that doesn’t mean you have to go sparkle- or statement-free to this season’s parties. Accessories are the simplest, easiest addition to any outfit, and since you don’t have to worry about fit, you can order them without fear online!

Below find some of the Web’s most fabulous additions to your Little Black Dress. Just add a pair of black heels to one of these bracelets, clutches, necklaces or scarves, and you’re ready to party. (Oh, and just because they are sparkly or bold doesn’t mean they’re not green; these fun additions are all ethical solutions, too.)

UM Clutch from Pivot Boutique

The Classic Clutch

A fabulous bag is fun and practical, too. After all, a gal needs a place to keep the mobile phone, some money and keys. Get your bag to work for any holiday outfit by choosing a gorgeous gold shiny version, like the Yana Sexy at All Times Belt Bag, which is made from recycled snakeskin and designed and constructed in NYC’s garment district, which means a lower carbon footprint.

Or, what about a clutch made from soda can pop-tops? It’s surprisingly slinky and made from totally recycled materials that would otherwise get tossed. This grey clutch from UM is made from boiled grey wool that’s factory excess (that’s called pre-consumer recycling) and even stores flat.

Teich clutchesare all made from vegetable tanned leather (which means no nasty effluent water from the tanning process) and have vintage metal touches and pretty hemp and cotton linings.
