Fall is officially here and that means boots, leggings and oversized clothing are in. Instead of going out and spending hundreds of dollars on fall essentials, I have some simple ways you can re-vamp your wardrobe to make it a little more trendy and fall like on a budget. These tips will be focused mostly for ladies but I’ll make another post about this for guys later.
DIY scarf – Yes, you can go out a buy some scarfs, but you might be able to save more money by doing it yourself. Check out your local fabric store for some plaids, deep colored (maroon is my fall favorite), or textured fabric. Take that fabric and transform it into an infinity scarf by sewing, using no sew iron on adhesive or hot glue! If you are looking to start a new hobby, try crocheting! Check out this great tutorial:
Layers– Purchase some warm toned undershirts or t-shirts to layer with a flannel, hoody or denim jacket. I recently have been loving the white under shirt with a flannel and black distressed jeans.
Over-sized clothing– Over-sized clothing is in, and it’s cozy! I think it’s worth it to splurge on a good quality, over-sized white tee or v-neck. Basics are a necessity and you can add jewelry, scarves, or layers to class it up a bit. So many possibilities with just one shirt. Over-sized sweaters are always a plus too! Not only are they warm, but they extremely comfortable!
Shoes- Fall is all about the boots. My go to fall shoes are my beige booties I purchased from Target last year. They were only $30 on sale and I get complements on them everywhere I go. They are super cute, comfortable, and go with every outfit. They are currently at full price online, but keep checking back! They may go on sale or you could check Target’s Cartwheel app for shoe coupons.
Makeup/Beauty Essentials– Instead of revamping your clothing, switch up your makeup look! For the frugal route, I suggest shopping for a new lip color, blush, nail polish or eye makeup at CVS or Ulta. CVS is awesome if you don’t mind drug store cosmetics. I love shopping at CVS because they usually have great deals that include extra bucks, or money back! Whenever you shop at Ulta, ALWAYS use a coupon. Here are some of my favorites below:
Nail color: Dark Dahlia by CND
Lipstick Color: Zoe’s Red by L’Oreal Paris
