Almost-edible accessories

The best part of Halloween is the candy, and there's no other time of year when consuming mass amounts of sugar-filled treats is not only acceptable, but encouraged. Since we're no longer kids, eating as much of the sweet stuff as we used to is a no-no, but the candy-filled holiday has inspired us to look for stylish finds that remind us of our favorite candy.

1Pink flower ring

The first thing that came to mind when we spied this adorably kitschy Betsey Johnson ring (endless.com, $45) was buttercream icing in the shape of pretty flowers. That's right, this playful piece of costume jewelry looks good enough to eat and like it belongs on a birthday cake — not on your finger. We love the detailed design and clever gold-plated base made to look like the thorny stem of a rose.

2Multicolored heel

Just try not to think about candy when you slip into a pair of these bold vintage-inspired heels featuring a rainbow of eye-catching hues in a charming chevron pattern (Mod Cloth, $175). The high gloss heels have a playful vibe true to their candy-coated roots and we love the idea of spicing up a LBD with a pair of these stylishly bright shoes.

3Orange rain boots

We can't wait to puddle-jump in a pair of these bright orange Hunter boots that remind us of those citrusy jelly candies in the shape of orange slices (net-a-porter.com, $125). Bring on the next rainy fall day so we can wade through the wet patches in style! Pair these candy-colored cuties with anything from skinny denim or leggings to tights and dresses.

4Striped cuff

Do you remember rocket popsicles? While not a candy per se, those red, white and blue striped icy pops were a much-loved childhood treat for many (including us) and this stainless steel cuff (ice.com, $70) looks good enough to lick. Okay, maybe not, but the striped (red, white and blue) arm candy is definitely chic and reminds us of our favorite flavored popsicle.

5Heart clutch

Cinnamon hearts and conversation hearts are synonymous with Valentine's Day (which we know is still quite a few months away), but that doesn't mean those popular heart-shaped candies don't still resonate with us this time of year. That's why we fell for this adorable pale pink clutch adorned with pink padded hearts (Top Shop, $45). Not only is it whimsical, but it looks almost as if it's made from candy!

6Embossed wallet

There's something about bright green that makes us think immediately about candy — pucker-inducing, lime flavored candy. Case in point: This pretty Commes des Garcons leather wallet in a candy-coated shade of green and embossed with playful clovers (Tobi.com, $101). We're pretty sure you'll smile every time you pull this fun accessory out of your purse.
