Under $100: Fall weekend outfit
Fall weekends are the perfect opportunity to try out fashion-forward outfits. A floppy fedora can make you feel as though you’ve stepped off the cover of a style magazine. A bold red lip adds instant glam. Simply looping in a scarf can sync up separates and give your outfit star power — channeling your inner Jessica Alba.
Go ahead, fill up your weekends with hayrides, leaf peeping and apple cider — and look good in those #fallfashion instagram snapshots. We’ve got the outfit planning handled.
Need a perfect formula for a weekend-appropriate fall outfit? Equal parts cozy and chic, and bonus points for being under $100.
Start with a fit-and-flare black dress:
A long-sleeve black dress can be remixed throughout your wardrobe all fall and winter long. This one has a figure-flattering flare and scoop neck.
For an edgy look, pair it with a black leather moto jacket. Go preppy with a lumberjack plaid shirt underneath and a denim jacket on top. Or, get glam with a delicate necklace and heels.
Our favorite way to wear it for fall, though? Layered with an oversized plaid scarf. XHIL Long Sleeve Black Dress, $24.99 (plus Cash Back), Target.com
Mad about plaid:
A quintessential fall outfit must-have? Plaid! The autumnal hues in this oversized plaid scarf are especially gorgeous. Loop it around your neck for an instant pop of color and pattern. Women’s Cozy Plaid Blanket Wrap Scarf, $16.99 (plus Cash Back), Target.com
Top it off:
A stylish hat adds a chic finish to any fall outfit. (Bonus: It’ll keep your head warm, too!) This felt fedora hat has an extra sweet finish with a leather strap on the side. Felt Slouch Fedora, $39 (plus Cash Back), Urbanoutfitters.com
Fall make-up shades can be a bit dramatic, with dark reds and plums dominating. If you’re shy when it comes to moody lipsticks and blushes — give it a go on your nails instead. We’re pointing right to this berry wine shade of polish that will make for the perfect autumn manicure. Nails Inc. Gel Effect in Wine, $15 (plus Cash Back), Sephora.com
One thing we adore about dressing for fall is the ability to add on layers and textures. To keep warm and pull in another layer, add on an open-front cardigan. This one is slightly fitted, hits at the hip and works just as great with dresses as it does layering with T-shirts. Open-Front Cardigan, on sale $10 (plus Cash Back), Oldnavy.com
