Let's get you dressed for fall
Fall is just around the corner, and I know you don't want to spend ALL your time and ALL your pennies on updating your wardrobe, but if you're here you most likely love fashion. So guess what. We're going to get you the cutest, top-trending items for fall fashion 2023 but at absolutely incredible prices.
We've been scouting the virtual aisles and racks for you, and I've come across some killer finds this year in affordable versions. Cue Out of the Woods, break out the pumpkin spice, and let's get ready for the coziest time of year.
In a hurry? Shop my picks below!
1. Faux Leather Everything
Let's just talk about how I was OBSESSED with this one all-leather dress last fall, but it was crazy expensive AND it sold out super fast (luckily for my bank account). I was really hoping another similar option would pop up this year and let's just say we hit the jack(o-lantern)pot! This shirtdress, with its sophisticated pleats and the edginess of faux leather, is a must-have in every fashion-forward wardrobe. Perfect for brunches, evening outings, or even a day at the office with the right accessories, it's the epitome of versatile chic. It runs TTS, fits like a glove, isn't too tight but still gives enough shape to feel feminine and the best part is it's $54. Most full leather dresses (like the one I was eyeing all of last fall) are easily at LEAST 3x, even in a faux leather!!
Seriously this is one of THE most flattering dresses I have ever worn. Period.
Beyond this gem, we also found some super cute faux leather leggings for only $15 and this pleated faux leather skirt that rings up at $36 and screams fall fashion '23! These pieces can be paired with just about anything, from cozy knit sweaters to delicate blouses. And those leggings? Just think about how effortless they'd be with an oversized sweater or tunic. I'm all about the legging life in the fall.
2. Bodysuits for Days
Bodysuits have an incredible way of defining a look with their streamlined charm. A piece that I'm stoked to wear over and over is this super pretty Puff Sleeve Bodysuit. This particular bodysuit, with its delicate puff sleeves, gives a romantic twist to the classic design, adding a touch of drama and sophistication. It's the kind of outfit staple that seamlessly transitions from a day look paired with a high-waist skirt to an evening ensemble with these flare jeans. Beyond this, Walmart offers a variety of bodysuits ranging from the essential classics to textured and ribbed styles. The beauty of bodysuits? That perfectly seamless, tucked-in look without any fuss or bulk. Truly a hug for your silhouette, they pair flawlessly with almost any bottom in your wardrobe.
Style tip: you don't have to button the bottom of your bodysuit if that bugs. Just tuck it into your pants or skirt and I promise nobody will ever know, but because of its design it will stay tucked so much better than a regular shirt!
3. Chunky Boots
The footwear game is reaching new heights this season, quite literally, with chunky boots. Leading the pack is this super highly-rated Madden NYC Women's Chunky Lug Chelsea Boots. These boots, with their bold lug soles and classic Chelsea design, are a contemporary twist on a timeless classic. The elevated platform not only adds a few inches to your height but also infuses an edgy flair to any outfit. Pair them with those new flare jeans, a faux leather dress, or even a feminine skirt for an edgy, contrasting look. The chunky boot trend is manifesting in various styles and designs, all perfect for trudging through fall leaves and making a distinct fashion statement. They're also only $32 which is a steal for new boots that will carry you through all fall and winter!
4. Rhinestone Boots, Metallic Shoes, and a Bootie Delight
Speaking of shoes, if you're looking to sparkle (literally) this fall without draining your piggy bank, we've got you. Let's talk about a particular gem: these ULTRA popular Rhinestone Pointed Toe Booties. These booties are the epitome of glam meets sophistication. With a pointed toe that elevates any outfit and the dazzle of rhinestones, they're the ultimate blend of elegance and edge. Whether you're heading out for a night on the town or just want to add a little sparkle to your daytime ensemble, these booties are the answer. Beyond the rhinestone delights, the metallic shoes, in shades ranging from subtle silver to bold gold, promise to catch eyes and make a statement.
Also real talk: all the boots in this post are SO COMFY. Honestly. I could wear these all night long. I wore this western pair from the exact same brand to the Swiftie concert this summer and stood for HOURS in them with zero pain! Both of the fall trending pairs linked here are equally as comfortable.
5. The Return of Flare Jeans
The nostalgic feel of the 70s is truly upon us with the grand return of flare jeans. A standout this season that I can't get enough of is this pair of Flare Leg High Rise Jeans. Crafted to fit snugly at the waist and gradually flaring out, these jeans accentuate the silhouette in all the right places. The high-rise cut is not just trendy but also incredibly flattering, creating an elongated leg effect. Pair them with the chunky boots and bodysuit, and you're ready to rock. Usually a good pair of jeans are a squeeze for your bank account, but these fit perfectly and give you breathing room too with just the right amount of stretch.
