For many, sporting the latest in fashion goes beyond just feeling good; it’s an absolute necessity.
Getting your hands on the hottest trends, that (thank the stars!) fit you like a glove, is akin to finding money in the street. It’s always possible, just not something you can really count on.
There’s only one thing that can make securing the perfect outfit for fall even better; securing it at a bargain. To help you on your way, here are the best of affordable fall fashion:
Stylish, soft sweaters
The warmth and comfort of alpaca
Forget bulky, shapeless sweaters…or cheap synthetics that pull and pill. When autumn’s chill rolls in, you can stay warm and cozy in a super soft alpaca sweater from the Peruvian Connection. These sweaters combine traditional techniques and materials with modern style. The result is a sweater you’ll love to wear for the feel, for the warmth and for the amazing style.
Affordable and friendly
Now, before the kicking, screaming and paint tossing begins, let me say this beautiful sable stole is really a beautiful faux sable stole. When it’s time to sport your finest for an evening on the town, a stole is the perfect complement. As elegant and stunning as this accessory is, the surprisingly affordable prices at Fabulous Furs makes this an easy choice for a list of affordable fall fashion.
Great style on sale
Shoes. For a lot of women, Imelda Marcos remains an icon. Sure, she was first lady of a country, but so what? What set’s her apart were those shoes! Man, that lady could shoe shop like no other. For women without access to an entire country’s national treasures, affordable fall fashion must include a few new pairs. Appleseeds, in addition to these Enzo Angiolini loafers, has a huge selection of fall fashions in their Sale/Outlet section.
Classics in multiples
Sweaters. Perfect for fall; assuming you can find the right one that is. Call me old-fashioned (I’ve been called worse), but nothing tops a classy cardigan. The Tog Shop has several to choose from, along with a host of other affordable fall fashion sweaters, pant suits, dresses and tops.
Wrap them or toss them over a shoulder
Call them scarves or shawls or pashminas. It really doesn’t matter, because whatever the name, these fashion accessories are a must-have for every autumn wardrobe. Just the right weight to add a touch of warmth to your shoulders or neck, pashminas are a world-wide fashion staple that’s recently become a standard in the U.S. too. Build a collection of scarves from Scarves.com in solids and prints, in fabrics from light-as-a-feather silk to softly drapping wool. That way, you’ll have the perfect accent for every outfit from jeans to a suit.
Autumn jackets and coats
Just right for enjoying autumn outdoors
I know it depends on where you live, but in many places the temps in autum can get downright nippy. That’s why a lightweight coat is a must-have for your autumn wardrobe Choose a style car-coat length coat in soft camel hair like this one from Orvis for a look that’s perfect for a stroll through the woods or a stop at the pumpkin patch.
Or opt for a light-weight wind-breaker jacket with a zip-in lining for chillier days. Either way, selecting a quality coat will save you money in the long run, as it lasts autumn after autumn. Pair your coat with some light-weight gloves and a soft woven tam-style hat or crumply fedora for a complete fall fashion statement.
