Fall is fast approaching and chock-full of my favorite things… college football, haunted houses, and pumpkin spice lattes. While many of us are ready to go back-to-school shopping for the inevitable drop in temperatures, try transitioning your summer pieces into fall with these money-saving tips.
Fall Trend 1: Plaid
How to transition? Window-pane print has been popular all summer long with no plans to slow down heading into fall. The black and white pattern makes the perfect backdrop to showcase your accessories and matches almost everything in your closet. Tory Burch loves this print, but Windsor Store makes this ivory checkered romper for only $34.90.
Fall Trend 2: Structured Bags
How to transition? A Celine purse is chic year-round, but you won’t break the bank carrying this almost identical $35 alternative from Windsor Store.
Fall Trend 3: Matte Red Lips
How to transition? Tone down the bright red lip by opting for a more crimson color as the weather cools. Stila makes an amazing no-smudge liquid lip-stick, but for only $2.99 Elf makes an awesome substitute.
Fall Trend 4: Pendant Necklaces
How to transition? Kendra Scott’s token bright necklaces have been seen all over the blogosphere this season, but Purple Peridot put a spin on her iconic shape in jewel tones for fall… and for only $15.99.
Fall Trend 4: Wide-Brimmed Hats
How to transition? Floppy hats can be found all over the beach during the summer months, but swap the straw for felt heading into fall. Free People makes the perfect wide-brimmed hat, but for only $24, ASOS’s version is on-trend as well.
