The weather has cooled down and leather jackets have hit the retail shelves. That could only mean one thing: fall fashion has finally arrived! I know, those long summer days, dinners on the patios and afternoons at the beach were really killing you (end sarcasm here). Now it’s time for darker colors and rich, luxe fabrics. The big trick is that you don’t want to spend a lot on a whole new wardrobe. You just want to make it seem like you did. You’ve got your basics all set. Just pick a couple of pieces to really set off your wardrobe and let everyone think that you dropped 1/3 of your salary on that new outfit. What you need is a wardrobe refresh!
Accessories are always the easiest way to punch up any ensemble. A rich leather bag or classic boyfriend watch would look amazing. If you want to get trendy, make sure to keep these pieces on the cheaper side. You’ll want to toss them in a few months so don’t spend too much money on them!
Leather is a big favorite for fall and I’m not just talking about the moto jacket. Designers have caught on and now offer leggings and silhouette-flattering skirts in lightweight leather. Don’t want to wear the real deal? You can still achieve the same look with vegan leather at a fraction of the cost.
Whatever you decide, make sure your fall fashion is you. And just because you fell in love with a designer’s fall collection doesn’t mean you have to buy the head to toe look. You can pick up pieces along the way, creating your own wardrobe as you go along. And you don’t have to spend too much cash all in one place!
