As the summer fades away and fall quickly approaches, there are a number of fall fashions every woman needs in her wardrobe. These simple pieces can be paired with pieces you already have to give you a completely updated look. And the best part is with only a few new pieces you do not have to spend a fortune. And the pieces you do spend more money on should be ones that are going to give you lots of wear throughout the season and for seasons to come.
Accordion Pleated Skirt
Look for a mid-length skirt and you can begin wearing it in early falls right away without needing to wear tights. As the temperature drops, you can wear a pair of tights to stay warm and trendy. Or even longer pleated skirts are a great go to option. Opt for a great neutral color and you will be able to use this skirt for many years to come. You can pair them with blouse, turtleneck, or even a sweater for those colder fall days.
This LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection skirt is available from Kohls, and originally only $64.00, and would make a great staple for your fall wardrobe.
A great way to update your wardrobe is to find a couple pieces of statement jewelry. These simple pieces can be a great way to give a new look to an otherwise plain outfit. Think about a chunky necklace or a larger cuff bracelet. And the best part is they are inexpensive enough you can get them in both colors or update a piece every season. The right piece of jewelry can be the only accessory you need. Cuffs can come in a wide variety of materials and colors. Bolder larger pieces can make a statement without getting in the way.
One great piece is the chunky necklace by Paparazzi Accessories called “In Good Glazes” available in black or peach for only $5.00.
Look for a pair of simple heels that are easy to walk in all day. Look for a lower height heel between ½ to 1 inch in height with a round toe. You will be able to move freely at the office or running errands after work without any issues. Opt for a neutral color or for some texture for a different look.
Hush Puppies Sharyl Gray Pumps in grey are a great option for fall shoes that your feet will be thinking you for. And at $49.99 regular price they will not break the bank.
One practical accessory is to add a fall handbag to your closet. But forego the traditional handbag and look for a more minimalist bag like a clutch. They are no longer for a night out on the town or a cocktail party. Instead this minimalist handbag carries your essentials without being too bulky. Look for a clutch that is free from sequins and satin and it will go perfectly with your work attire or a little black dress for a night out.
This Koltov Women’s Carryall Clutch has lots of space to carry your things, comes in more than one color to choose from, and at around $10 you can afford to get more than one.
Instead of a boring fall jacket or a traditional blazer, look for ways to change things up. Look for a blazer made out of less traditional fabrics in a slightly different cut than the boxy looking traditional blazer. Neutrals like black and navy will always be classic and able to be worn year after year, and make great layering pieces so you can wear some of your summer favorites a little later into the fall. A great blazer is extremely versatile and can be paired with a pair of jeans or a pleated skirt.
Eddie Bauer Travel Blazer has a traditional silhouette, but fabric which is forgiving and less likely to wrinkle and great for traveling and a weekend away. At $179.99 it is pricier, but will last you seasons to come and be a go to all the time.
