There is something about fall fashions that makes me want to spend,
spend, and then spend some more. Maybe it is the air turning cooler and
crisper, maybe it is the back-to-school spirit, or maybe I just want to
do my part to support the economy. Whatever the motivation is, there are certainly a lot of items I covet for this coming season.
Fortunately for me (and you), however, there are plenty of affordable
pieces that look like they could have come straight from the runways.
Let’s start with shoes, because they are the foundation of every outfit
and because fall fashions always mean lots of amazing boots. This year
is no exception, with boot options ranging from slouchy flat boots to
equestrian-inspired over the knee numbers to quirky little ankle
booties. In fact, if you are in the market for that last option, you
are in luck because Target is carrying a pair of high-heeled oxfords that are just about perfect, and perfectly priced at $34.99.
Another key fall trend is anything ombre; these styles can
also be incredibly flattering when worn correctly (the lighter shade
should be on the areas you want to highlight). For example, this sleek
wine-hued DKNY frock would show off a slim midsection
and elegant collarbones while sweeping the eye away from everything
below the waist – and it would be perfect with black tights and fall’s
platform pumps. Girly-girls will also want to pick up something lacy for evenings, perhaps with a vintage feel like this glamorous Max Studio dress.
