If you haven’t already noticed, here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we’re beyond excited for fall! After all, the season is synonymous with cozy coats, plum lipstick, chunky knits and leather boots, which just happen to be some of our favorite pieces. Now, if you’re not equally excited for fall—which seems virtually impossible with all the chic capes, plush velvet pieces, and 50s-inspired dresses spotted on the fall runways—perhaps we can help. How, you ask? Well, dear readers, we have scouted out a cornucopia of on-trend fall purchases and we’re pleased to report they’re all under $150! Now that’s guilt-free shopping! Read on!
Knitted Slouchy Stitch Jumper ($80) from Topshop
Nothing—we repeat, nothing—will make you feel equipped for crisp fall weather like a chunky knit, whether it is in the form of oversized sweater, a thick scarf, or a snug sweater dress. The key this season? Layering. Pair a thick sweater with a knit skirt and tights, or layer a chunky scarf over a sweater dress. So easy, so effortless.
Down In The Valley Dress ($107.99) from ModCloth
Forget the mod styles of the 1960s, or the whimsical hippie looks of the 1970s. This season, it’s the 1950s that are making a splash, via swing dresses, hourglass silhouettes, circle skirts, and Capri pants. The biggest plus is the options: take your inspiration from tailored, feminine looks (think Mad Men) or sexy rockabilly-inspired looks (à la Isabel Marant’s fall collection).
Military Knitted Cape ($60.66) by ASOS
We die over the cape—it’s chic, cozy and uncomplicated, which makes it arguably one of the easiest fall trends to take on. In the early days of fall, layer yours over a leather skirt and add platform sandals. As the weather turns, pair your cape with skinny jeans and thigh-high boots, or a sweater dress and knit tights. Whichever way you go, it’s effortless.
Rhythm Leopard Sandals ($145) from Topshop
If you want to make a statement this fall, you simply can’t look past animal print accessories. A pair of platform sandals—in leopard print, naturally—is an eye-catching way to accessorize your little black dress, while a similarly-spotted belt or structured satchel bag will always give your outfit a bold boost. The bonus? There’s an animal print piece for everyone, whether you’re self-assured or shy.
Jersey Knit Maxi Skirt ($22.80) from Forever 21
Set aside your skintight bandage skirt this fall and select a floor-grazing maxi skirt in its place. The look is oh-so-effortless and, happily, ultra easy. Plus, the styling options are endless! Pair it with an oversized sweater and a knit beanie for a grunge-inspired look, or wear it with a cropped knit top and a silky headband for a bohemian-luxe look.
Shearling Drape Jacket ($68) from Nasty Gal
Thanks to brands like Burberry and Rag & Bone, shearling is one of this season’s most must-have trends. The best part? There are so many different ways to incorporate the look into your wardrobe. If you’re looking to update your outerwear collection for fall, look no further than a shearling jacket. Need a new pair of ankle booties? Try some with a luxe shearling trim.
Velvet Foliage Dress ($98) by Free People
Nothing will make you feel more subtly sexy this season than a plush velvet piece, whether it’s a burnout print dress, a tailored blazer, or a pair of wide-leg pants. The best way to wear it? Make your velvet stand out by pairing it with simple, unfussy layers—a white tee, a black sweater, a gray blazer.
Belted Military Coat ($79.92) from Alloy
Combat the cold weather this fall/winter with a camel coat that is smart and sophisticated. Layer it over a little black dress at night, keep it casual on weekends with skinny jeans and boots, or pair it with a slouchy sweater and leather skinny pants for your next fashion event. Whichever way you work it, one thing is guaranteed: a camel coat never goes out of style.
