Valentine's Day means buying gifts for your loved one and significant others. Christmas and Hanukkah mean presents galore for your family and friends. But Halloween is the only holiday that encourages you to buy a brand new outfit, only for the sake of being festive. Granted, you probably won't wear that sexy tiger costume again, but if this October you are shopping for Halloween accessories, know that they don't have to be a once-a-year indulgence. There are plenty of Halloween accessories — like jewelry, shoes, and bags — that can work all year round.
My favorite part of buying a Halloween costume is searching for the perfect accessories. I am a firm believer that a strong look is all in the details. When it comes to Halloween accessory shopping, of course certain things might be explicitly seasonal (like pumpkin earrings or an actual vampire cape). Sticking to a safe color palette consisting of black, red, and gold can help and avoiding imagery that will confuse people what time of year it is will help lead you to your new favorite year-round spooky accessories. Here are 11 Halloween accessories that don't go out of season quite like a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Who said vampy accessories are exclusively for Halloween? Some miniature fangs add a little edge to your stacks of rings.
