Update Your Fall Style on a Budget

Now that the fall weather has finally arrived, there’s no need to splurge on an entire new wardrobe to get this year’s latest looks. Here are a few simple ways to spruce up your style without breaking the bank:

Add a Leather Jacket
Layering a leather jacket over your tees, blouses or dresses screams edgy girl chic --instantly creating a more vamped up look.

Black Rivet Washed Lamb Scuba Jacket available at www.wilsons.com for $179.99

Elle Faux Leather Crop Jacket available at www.kohls.com for $58.50

Michael Kors Black Knit Collar Bomber Jacket available at www.bluefly.com for $268.20

Statement Shoes

Whether you choose to go with the trend of “over-the-knee-boots” or a bold colored bootie, both will take a plain outfit from drab to fab.

Take a look at Amber Rose in these tan suede boots and Angela Simmons in her brightly colored blue-suede shoes:

Well-Tailored Blazer
Like a leather jacket, a blazer is a timeless piece that will never go out of style. Whether it’s vintage, classic or modern, a blazer can be used to add a funky flair to your style.

Check out Solange in her canary yellow blazer:

Instead of a basic black blazer, you may want to consider adding a pop of color to make your outfit stand out. If you want a similar look, check out this nutmeg blazer from Topshop:

Nutmeg Boyfriend Blazer available at www.topshop.com for $130
