Fall Staples. Fall is here and it’s time to update our wardrobes with warm, stylish pieces without spending a fortune! Above are some of my favorite fall picks under $100—with the exception of the BCBG bag (a worthwhile splurge and a good deal for a gorgeous, luxurious bag like this!) The key to looking expensive (without your outfit needing to be) is splurging in the right places! Fall calls for rich colors and textures like this fabulous faux fur coat from H&M. The faux fur adds glamour to a classic fitted coat and the saturated color is flattering for any skin tone! This cowl neck sweater (on sale for $25!) is perfect under a coat or by itself, it’s warm and casual and can be dressed up with jewelry and accessories. The perfect ankle bootie is a must-have for this fall, they’re so versatile and only $45! It’s important to get quality footwear— you want something classic and comfortable, something that you can wear season after season—and for $45 it’s a steal! Booties are a great option for footwear, they can be worn with skinny jeans (these black-wash skinnies are under $30!) straight leg jeans, or boot-cut jeans for completely different looks! Trousers, dresses, skirts, and leggings are also options for these stylish shoes. A monotone satchel is my “It” bag for this fall. Like the ankle booties, it can be paired with so many different pieces to create totally different looks. It can be dressy with a blazer and a dress or casual with a leather jacket, cardigan, or sweater. It is the most expensive item on my list but you when it comes to handbags you really want something quality and chic, the right handbag can take an outfit to a whole new level of fabulous! This gold chain-link necklace I absolutely love. It’s chic, it’s classic, and it’s an amazing buy (under $30)! When combined with the sweater it makes the ensemble dressier and it can also be worn with a blouse for work-wear or a sleek dress for date night (try a LBD in a sheath style with black sued pumps)!
