Fashions Under $50: Blaze Your Way Into Fall

By Maggie Malach

With stores rolling out fall fashions already, it’s hard not to get swept up in the cold-weather clothes. It’s not too early to start transitioning your wardrobe to September mode, if you pick the right pieces.

A jacket like this one from Ruched Three Quarter Sleeve One Button Blazer, $39.98, from Macy’s is perfect to throw over a light cotton dress on a chilly night. It also works well over twill shorts if you’re going for a nautical look. As autumn draws nearer, simply swap out the shorts from jeans and you are ready to go!

Another great staple for this fall is the lightweight scarf. Whether it is a pashmina, or the the this New York and Company Lace Print Eternity Scarf, $19.95, scarves are an easy accessory that are versatile with all tops. As fall draws nearer, simply add a cardigan to this combo.

One trend that will be working it’s way onto the feet of women everywhere is oxfords. Menswear has been increasingly infiltrating women’s fashions for the past couple of seasons, and these shoes really emphasize this. Oxfords go great with a pair of dressier shorts or cropped trousers, but will also work great with straight-leg pants in the fall. Try these Cooperative Perforated Oxfords, $48.00, from Urban Outfitters if you want to test run this new look.
