New season, new clothes! This is what we usually think when we find the cooler months approaching. However, we don’t have to break the bank to get a perfectly trendy fall look. We just need to invest in some key pieces, and combine them with summer looks for a cute and affordable way to welcome autumn.
Look 1. Dress – Topshop; Sandals – Nelly; Sunglasses – Kate Spade; Bag – Piperlime; Necklace – J Crew;
Look 2. Add: Tights – Modcloth; Cardigan – Mango; Bag – Piperlime; Scarf – Pieces;
This summer, you probably wore a sundress with high sandals, a straw bag, a pair of sunglasses and a necklace – it’s an easy and chic look that works well on anyone. Now that cooler days are coming, the only thing you need to replace is your bag – leather or faux leather is more autumn-appropriate than straw or canvas, which are usually reserved for summer. Then, pick a pair of opaque tights and a light cardigan, and accessorize with a nice scarf. You should also keep the sunglasses – you still need UV protection, even if the sun is not that bright.
Look 1. Pants – J Crew; Top – Monki; Sunglasses – Moschino; Shoes – Fab.; Bag – Oasis; Collar – Topshop; Bracelets – River Island;
Look 2. Add: Bracelet – Cheap Monday; Scarf – Bank; Blazer – River Island; Socks – J Crew; Bag – Sister P.
Did you happen to wear a pair of bright pants with a button down top, loafers and sunglasses? Perhaps you accessorized with a collar necklace, friendship bracelets and a cute tote bag? Well, just keep the first four items, and layer a bit for fall. For example, you could pick a blazer and scarf, replace the friendship bracelets with something less summery, and opt for a pair of socks to keep you warm. Exchange the canvas tote for a leather messenger, and you’re ready to go!
