If your wallet is still feeling the effects of a fun-filled summer, you’re in good company. We, too, spent way too much on nachos and chokers, and for this reason and a ton of others, we’re looking to save some cash as we make the transition from summer to fall fashion. Luckily, fab fall fashion doesn’t have to come with a high price tag. Breathe new life into your summer staples to make them prime for autumn time. Just a few simple tweaks can do wonders for extending the life of your favorite pieces. Read on to learn how to pull off a fierce fall look effortlessly – without breaking the bank.
You can still get plenty of wear out of those maxi skirts. You’ll just need to switch things up a bit. Combine a black maxi with a long-sleeve crop top or slouchy knit sweater — both chic options. A wide-brimmed hat can serve as the perfect finishing touch.
That classic white button-up you wore endlessly during the warm months can easily be taken for a fall time spin. Pair a white blouse with a black crew neck tee and a pair of flared jeans for a modern take on casual. If you want to take the glam factor up a notch, incorporate a stunning string of pearls or a luxe gold chain necklace.
We couldn’t get enough of easy, breezy skater dresses all season, and these are still prime for autumn. Take those black, olive and beige skater dresses and combine them with blazers, moto jackets and cardigans for a comfy look that doesn’t skimp on style. Add in a few fall time elements, like a bold, dark lip and a pair of ankle booties to take the look to the next level.
Not quite done with boyfriend jeans yet? Us, either! Boyfriend jeans are always cool, and especially cozy during fall. From fitted flannel shirts, to off-the-shoulder knits and prim and proper sweaters, a number of gorgeous tops can put a new spin on denim, making for a fun ensemble ideal for a ton of occasions.
Sultry lace-up tops were all the rage during the warm months, and their time to shine is not done yet. Pair a lace-up top with a pair of distressed skinny jeans, pointy pumps and a sleek, sophisticated trench coat for the ultimate in casual chic. Swap out the jeans for a form-fitting pencil skirt to take the look for a night out on the town.
