Fall fashion: Wardrobe essentials under $100
The swimsuits, shorts and flip-flops are on the sales racks. And even in the heat of August, it’s time to look forward to fall. And with fall, comes the excitement of a new wardrobe. Adding new pieces to your fall ensemble does not have to cost a fortune.
Here are four fall wardrobe essentials under $100.
The color “marsala:”
This earthy, brown-red is perfect for fall. It was also named the color of the year for 2015 by the Pantone Color Institute. So if you haven’t already hued up, find a solid-color dress, shirt or even accent accessory in the hottest color out there.
For an easy and inexpensive way to wear marsala, pick up a lip color at Sephora. bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick, $18 (plus 4% Cash Back), Sephora.com
Jumpers, warmed up:
Jumpers were big in the summer, and they still are as the weather cools down. Take the jumper into the fall by choosing one with a warmer material, like this corduroy jumper at Urban Outfitters. Or pick a full-length pants jump suit. Cooperative Juniper Corduroy Jumper, $69 (plus 3% Cash Back), UrbanOutfitters.com
A cropped sweater:
It’s not fall without a few new sweaters. This year, look for striped and cropped sweaters.
On the flipside of the simple and sleek cropped sweater, other sweater trends this fall include shaggy, fringey and unfinished-looking sweaters and sweatshirts that are a bit on the baggy side. Pair them with skinny jeans or faux leather or suede. BDG Casey Ribbed Knit Cropped Sweater, $49 (plus 3% CashBack), UrbanOutfitters.com
Sporty bomber jackets:
Women’s outerwear in the fall often trends toward androgynous or even masculine styles, and this year is no exception. If you buy one jacket this fall, make it a modern bomber jacket.
This jacket by Juicy Couture has the classic bomber cut, but with a playful, feminine accents (a pink leopard print) on the sleeves. Bomber Jacket, on sale $79 (plus 3% Cash Back), Juicycouture.com
