8 Fall closet essentials under $80!

style trend comment

8 closet staples under $80 | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

With the official start of Fall starting tomorrow, it’s a good time to start looking at your closet to see what items you already have and what gaps there may be. I’ve rounded up what I consider closet essentials for you. A chunky sweater dress is always great for the cooler weather and can be transitioned to winter by adding leggings or OTK boots. A cardigan is a must in my closet and the longer length is great for both formal and casual looks. Add a little bit of a statement to your footwear with a leopard print bootie – treat it like a neutral and the pairing possibilities are endless. A long sleeve tee is always great for layering and is perfect for extending the life of your sweaters. There is a tendency to gravitate towards darker colors in the fall but a neutral tote can be used all year round. Olive green is a must have color and this vest is the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe. These mules are the best way to hold on to the summer weather and also embrace the new season. A light jacket is necessary and what better way to make a fashion statement than this classic moto design?


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Burgundy sweater dress {only $19 and 2 colors available}

2. Beige longline cardigan {3 colors}

3. Leopard print bootie {under $50}

4. Grey layering long sleeve tshirt {3 colors}

5. Tan work tote

6. Olive green utility vest {2 colors}

7. Bow mule slip ons {2 colors}

8. Black moto jacket {3 colors}

Monthly budget finds under $50

deals comment

Budget finds under $50 | www.shoppingmycloset.com

During the winter months, I tend to live in neutrals. But, I am looking forward to Spring and to help make the easy transition, I’m opting for neutral pieces but appropriate for the warmer weather. Here are some budget friendly finds that can also help you make that transition:

Black wide leg pants: How cute is the belting detail? Pair it a fitted top to balance out the bottom and pointed heels to elongate the legs.

Petal chandelier earrings: these would be perfect to pair with an otherwise neutral look to dress it up.

White and black contrast shirt with embroidered collar: I’m always on the lookout for a white blouse since you can pair it with anything. The contrast piping and collar detail add some fun to the top, and gives it a more sophisticated feel.


Navy herringbone scarf
: if you’re looking for one scarf to add to your closet, this might be the one. It’s a classic look overall: blue, white, and stripes – what more can you ask for?

Black accented ankle boots: these boots are only $32 but they look so much more expensive because of the metallic accent at the toe.

Military-inspired wide leg pants: the military look is going strong and these pants are perfect. They’re under $20 and meet all the chic factors: wide leg, metallic button accents, slimming!

Black lace heels: I bought my first lace heels from Banana Republic (last see here) and fell in love! The lace detail adds so much to an outfit. Since they are only available in grey, these black ones would be a great 2nd pair for me (and not to mention, they’re under $20!)

Pink ring purse: this bag is the perfect shade to prepare for the spring season and its versatility as a handbag and crossbody make it worth the buy!

Striped hem pencil skirt: can you believe this Vince Camuto stripe pencil skirt is only $24? Perfect for a daytime look – keep it classic by pairing with a white silk or cotton button down.
