VIDEO: Lori Bergamotto compares top-dollar items with thrifty counterparts.

Two of the hottest trends turning heads this season are booties and crossbody bags. Whether it's a look for the weekend, a work day or a night out, these must-have accessories of the season can polish any outfit.

Lori Bergamotto of Lucky magazine visited " Good Morning America" today with her favorite picks at a high and low price point. The budget-friendly looks replicate the high-end design, but at a fraction of the cost.

See the four "save" and "splurge" look below, but first check out three more of Lori's picks and tips on how to accessorize them for day or night.

3 More of Lori's Picks

1. Nine West Sammy Boot, $149;

The original Western Bootie style is surprisingly versatile. Pair it with leggings or jeans for a casual look. For night, sub out your strappy sandals and bust up the stuffiness of a cocktail dress with these comfier alternatives. Finish the look with a fitted blazer for a look that's festive and fresh.

2. Aldo Soun, $89.98;

Cobalt may well be the color of the season, so why not test-drive the trend with a pair of high-heeled booties. For day, pair them with colored denim and a chunky sweater or a printed shirt and, for evening, spotlight the trend with an all-black ensemble and layers of jewelry.

3. Vince Camuto Cristina Crossbody Bag, $138;

A cross body bag in a neutral tone is the ultimate in wearability. This one with a faux animal skin elevates the look and injects unexpected polish to a laid-back silhouette.
