Fall, my very favorite season, is here. Hooray! For many of us, the arrival of autumn means it’s time to add some new pieces to our fall wardrobes, which is exactly what I have been doing the last couple of weeks. Here are 10 fall wardrobe pieces priced under $100 that I added to my closet recently:
TOPS & SWEATERS
Lace-Up Top, $48
I love the lace-up trend happening with both shoes and clothes. This super-soft top with get-noticed lace-up detail is edgy and a little sexy too. I like how I can throw it on with jeans and a pair of black booties and I am ready to go!
V-Neck Cozy Sweater, $50
After this month’s How I Wear My: Yellow post, this vibrant shade has been on my radar. Although this sweater comes in other less dramatic colors (the coral is gorgeous, by the way) I decided to go for the brightest and boldest and chose Aurora Yellow.
Oversized with extra long sleeves and a deep v-neck, this sweater is ideal for layering. Although it does have wool its blend (18%) it’s not scratchy at all and in fact it’s incredible soft and cozy.
Long V-Neck Tunic, $89
I love a long tunic, especially one that can be worn with layers. I plan on adding a long-sleeved shirt under this tunic on cooler days. It will look great with leggings, tall boots and a black wool hat.
Lace Pintuck Blouse, $60
I bought this top in both white and black and am now considering adding the olive color to my closet. I wore the white to a concert Saturday night with jeans, nude sandals and a long necklace with an agate pendant. This top soft and comfortable and I love the lace detail.
I can’t get enough of long open-front cardigans! Here in Wine Country, the temperatures can change dramatically making layering essential. I will wear this burgundy long cardigan with a T-shirt or tank top when the weather is still warm and wear it with a turtleneck or long-sleeved sweater and a scarf when cool weather arrives
Black Sweater Duster, $98
A few years ago I bought a long black sweater duster by Free People. I wore it so much that it started to fall apart. I refused to give it up until I found its replacement which I did last week. This duster is ribbed and has darling gold buttons on the sleeves.
I had an interview recently to go some freelance writing for a magazine. I wanted to wear slacks to the interview but realized, while I have loads of jeans, I own not one pair of classic trousers! These slacks are great to have on hand when the dress code calls for a professional outfit.
Navy ankle pants, $34
When I don’t feel like wearing jeans or leggings, I like a good ankle pant. I love navy blue and like to wear it with winter white, cognac and even black in the fall and winter. They look great with flat shoes too!
Plaid Shirt Dress, $35
I am a big fan of the shirt dress trend. Throwing one of these cute frocks on with a pair of tall boots or booties is such an easy way to look put together without a fuss. I will add tights, a pashmina and a hat on chilly days.
This denim shirt dress is my favorite piece of the group. Soft and flattering, this dress is going to get lots of play this fall!
