Summer Pieces You Can Buy Now And Wear Into Fall

Summer 2020 is basically over and, if I’m being honest, I’m not too sad about it. With this summer being such a flop, you may not have even realized that fall is here like, now (uh news flash, we’re halfway through September). We’re now at that awkward in-between season where you feel like you shouldn’t be buying summer stuff when you can also be getting a pumpkin spice latte but, at the same time, we still have another few weeks of relatively warmer weather. So what are you supposed to do, not engage in retail therapy? Lol, no. In order to accommodate this weird transitional season, here are some summer pieces you can still buy now that will also translate for fall. 

1. Trendy Tennis Skirt

Princess Polly Lona Mini Skirt, $46

If you follow any fashion bloggers on Instagram, then you already know the tennis skirt has been a huge summer trend. Of course, a short sporty tennis skirt may initially seem like an exclusively summer or spring piece, but it can also work great for fall. Pick one in a traditional print like this ’90s plaid which can be styled tons of ways. For example, pair it with an oversized sweater or fitted turtleneck and add tall boots or short booties and tights for a stylish fall outfit. 

2. Versatile Button Down

Thirty20 Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt, $65

Button downs are a closet staple of mine because they can be worn so many different ways. You can wear it as we transition to fall, either buttoned and front-tucked, or even tied into a crop top with the sleeves rolled. This one in particular is perfect for transitioning from season to season with its neutral brown tie-dye print. You could wear it into fall layered over a graphic tee, a fitted long sleeve, or even just tied around your waist. 

3. Simple Slip Dress

Local Heroes Grey Satin Slip On Mini Dress, $80

The slip dress seemed like one of those here today, gone tomorrow type of trends when it first surfaced a few years ago. But, it’s fully stuck around, which is great considering it can so easily transition from season to season. For example, you can obviously wear it now with strappy sandals or dad sneakers for an end-of-summer look. As it gets chillier, you can also wear it layered over a graphic tee or fitted long sleeve, or even layered with a cardigan or denim jacket.

4. Basic Bodysuit

Mistress Rocks ‘Deviate’ Black Silky Jersey Low Back Bodysuit, $51

You can’t go wrong with a basic bodysuit—whether you wear it casually with jeans or dressed up with a mini skirt, it’s obviously a versatile piece. And, being that it is so inherently versatile, it’s definitely a piece to buy now for transitioning from summer to fall. Bodysuits are perfect for wearing under jackets, flannels, and cardigans all throughout the fall season.

5. Midi Skirt

UO Kelly Tulip Wrap Midi Skirt, $59

A midi skirt can easily be worn all year long. Wear one now with a cute fitted crop top or into the fall with either an oversized off-the-shoulder sweater or T-shirt-and-jacket-combo. It looks great paired with chunky sneakers in the fall or even slouchy boots as we move into winter.

6. High-Quality Black Crop Top

Nookie Black Milano Crop, $90

When it comes to basic essential pieces, it’s worth spending the money on high-quality staples so that they’ll actually last you from season to season. Sure, it may seem expensive for a crop top, but unlike the $10 one from Forever21, this one won’t fall apart after one season. 

7. Flowy Pants

Charley Madelyn Polished in Black Paperbag Pant, $22

There’s nothing better than a flowy pant in the summer, especially on those days you don’t feel like squeezing into denim shorts. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t put on bottoms with a fly in months. Fortunately, flowy pants are a chic boho alternative to shorts during the summer months, and they also transition perfectly for fall. Pair them now with a crop top or in the fall with either a cropped or oversized slouchy sweater.

8. Fitted Mini Dress

White Fox Play It Loud Drawstring Mini Dress Dusty Khaki, $49.99

A fitted mini dress is obviously a summer wardrobe must-have. It can be dressed up with a pair of heeled sandals or down with a cool pair of chunky sneakers. However, it can also be a fall wardrobe staple with some styled layering pieces. Wear your fitted mini dress into the fall by layering it with an oversized cardigan and boots for a versatile fall fit.

9. Loose Knit Cardigan

Free People Sweet Talker Cardi, $168

A good open knit cardigan is worth investing in. It’s obviously ideal during the transitional months of spring and fall as an easy layering piece for when the weather is, like Katy Perry, hot and cold. It’s ideal for an end-of-summer look to wear over a tank and shorts, or even as a stylish beach cover-up. Then, as we head into fall, it’s perfect for an extra layer of warmth that also adds an additional element of style.

10. Strapless Top

House of CB Juana White Shaped Top Boned Corset, $89

Strapless tops can easily be worn into the chillier months with a cool jacket or oversized cardigan. You can even get more creative with it by layering it over a fitted tee or turtleneck for a cool-girl layered look. Pick a structured corset one for a trendy and flattering season-to-season piece.

11. Sleeveless Jumpsuit

Etica Cami Jumpsuit Coffee, $165

This jumpsuit is an ideal example of something you can wear now with a sandal, and then into the fall over a mock neck long sleeve and ankle boots. The color has a hint of peach keeping it summery, while it’s also neutral enough to still be appropriate for fall. You can even just throw a jacket over your shoulders with it for the start of fall during those weeks when the weather is still so unpredictable. 

12. T-Shirt Dress

Superdown Ciara Tee Dress, $58

T-shirt dresses are another summery item I wear every month, because they can be styled so many different ways. You can wear it now while it’s hot out for a simple and comfortable outfit that looks cute with sneakers. Then, as we move into fall, you can easily pair it with boots and a jacket, or layered over leather leggings for an edgier look.

If you haven’t caught on to my point by now, it’s that a lot of your summer pieces can transition to fall through different layering and styling techniques. So instead of buying just either swimsuits or sweaters, spend your money on these more versatile pieces that you can actually wear throughout the year.

The Top 5 FILA Looks You Need Right Now

Sponsored by FILA

If you’re not already on board with the comfort trend, then what are you doing with your life? Truly though, the fact that you can wear comfy clothes and it’s considered fashionable is a total win in my book, especially as we move into the colder months. And to make it that much more stylish and cool, one of the most popular and iconic sportstyle brands, FILA, has just released a Cozy Capsule Collection. It’s the perfect blend of trendy and cozy, all wrapped into one stylish must-have capsule. With that being said, here are the pieces I’ll be without a doubt ordering *adds to cart.*

Cristabel Crop Sweatshirt

The first must-cop piece from the collection is the Cristabel Crop Sweatshirt. This sweatshirt is the epitome of everything I love about a classic sports aesthetic with a touch of glam. Even if you’re not trying to show your midriff in your crop top (which like, fair, it’s cold outside) you could easily pair this crop sweatshirt with high-waisted joggers and stay relatively warm while showing off your waist. Not to mention, this particular crop sweatshirt is reminiscent of some of the designer pieces I’ve already seen for this season, just without the unreasonable price tag. 

Barbara Tee

This tee is an essential layering piece to have in your closet as we transition into the colder seasons. To start, just the fit of the tee itself is perfection. It’s cropped and fitted but most importantly, it has the best type of short sleeve. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then it’s probably because you have perfect arms (happy for you, know that I am). What I’m referring to is the kind of short sleeve that actually looks flattering on your arm since it’s slightly longer than your average short sleeve. Not only is the fit of this tee on point, but the short sleeve style combined with the fuzzy FILA logo is the perfect winter version of a graphic tee, ideal for wearing under a knit cardigan or cool denim jacket. It’s guaranteed to be your go-to layering piece all season long.

Emmeline Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt looks so cozy, I just want to snuggle up in it right now and live in it forever. For a more casual look, I’d pair it with a glossy legging and of course, your FILA Disruptor Boot (more on that later). Or, dress it up with super tight leather pants and strappy heels for an LA-cool, model-off-duty-heading-to-Craig’s-on-a-weeknight look.

Dolly Oversized Hoodie

You’ll want to grab this hoodie jacket to throw on all season long. Since it’s oversized, you will automatically make a statement that is effortlessly cool. You could legit pair it with whatever you’re already wearing and instantly look like a street style star. It’s a cool and easy jacket to layer on, and I’d say it’s an obvious must-have. Additionally, this makes for a great gift option because who wouldn’t want an oversized plush zip-up hoodie??? It’s a rhetorical question, EVERYONE would love it. 

Disruptor Boot

A crucial piece for outfitting your cold-weather ensemble this season is the new FILA Disruptor Boot. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the Disruptor, which is THE chunky white sneaker of chunky white sneakers. But now, your fav sneaker comes in a winter-ready take on the summer’s trendiest style, with the same signature chunkiness and sawtooth bottom. With these boots, you even have the option of cuffing the shaft to show off the shearling fleece lining, a key stylish detail that also happens to provide extra warmth. And of course, the boots feature the iconic logo, plus a reflective eyerow detail. They’re legit the only shoe you need to match with any of your sportstyle outfits this upcoming season, and you can quote me on that.

Because heritage-inspired fashions are back in style, FILA is like, so hot right now. Shop the new Cozy Capsule Collection before all your friends and you’ll be both warm and the trendiest person in your friend group. So trendy that your friends will probably start asking you to explain Tik Tok to them.

 

5 Fall Boots For Under $100

You could easily spend a small fortune just trying to keep up with all of this season’s trends. Especially if you’re trying to purchase trendy versions of pricier fall staples, such as a great pair of fall boots, it can add up quick. Trying to stay trendy will lead to some tricky financial decisions, especially for those of us with little self-control. Like, f*ck electricity and running water! Who needs a roof over their head when you’ve instead got the designer “it” boot of the season, right??? Wrong, very wrong. In general, you all already know that trends are not exactly worth investing your hard-earned dollars into, and new pairs of trendy fall boots are no exception. That being said, in order to help you avoid the nail-biting decision of  whether to buy groceries for the week or those snakeskin boots you keep seeing all over Instagram, here are affordable alternatives for each of the fall boot trends.

1. Glossy Crocodile

Simmi London Katarina Blush Croc Block Boots, $72

You may have read the name of this trend and been like, “uh, wtf is that?” But I guarantee that once you saw my suggested pick you understood EXACTLY the trend I’m talking about. This is because the “glossy croc” trend is currently seizing Insta feeds all across our great nation, with every blogger, influencer, and girl with a #ootd pic positing in some iteration of the trend. The glossy croc boot is primarily done in a dark color or a jewel-tone shade, but I’m loving this version of the fall boot trend I’ve selected for you in a muted blush. Plus, I doubt all the Jessicas from high school with basic fashion blogs already have this pale pink version.

2. Slouchy

Chinese Laundry ‘Rosa’ Slouch Boot, $99.95

Okay, so you can do this slouchy boot trend two different ways: a casual slouch or an exaggerated slouch. The boot I’ve selected for you is more of a casual, everyday slouch. However, for those of you out there who are extra, then the over-the-knee oversized exaggerated slouch is an extra cool take on the trend. I highly recommend getting yourself one of each version.

3. Animal Print

Coconuts by Matisse ‘Ramble’ Bootie, $95

We’ve already discussed at length how animal print is THE fall trend of fall trends for 2019. That being said, it should come as no surprise that this trend is also a go-to print right now for fall boots as well. Everything animal print is trending: from leopard to snake to tiger to zebra to cow, it’s all happening. I personally recommend opting for a leopard print or a snake print boot because they tend to be more timeless and neutral and, therefore, will go the most seamlessly with the rest of your fall wardrobe.

4. Western

Vivi Western Ankle Boot, $72.95

One of my favorite fall boots trends this season is the western boot. This is because, unlike last year’s big trend of sock boots, western style boots are wider around the leg and thus way more flattering because they create the illusion of thinner legs (which I’m always here for). I think the western boot is a flirty feminine trend to embrace this season—just make sure you keep the rest of your outfit chic and polished so you don’t cross into sorority-girl-at-her-first-country-concert territory. Basically, just leave the flannel and cowgirl hat at home and you’ll be fine.

5. Square Toe

RAID Kaiya Black Square Toe Boots, $52.99

A more recent Instagram phenomenon is the square toe trend. This trend has infiltrated all categories in the shoe arena, with fall boots being a major target. This trend is slated to continue well into spring, so if you do want to splurge, this is probably the trend in which to do so. But then again, there’s really no need because the boots I’ve selected for you are amaze. Unless you’re Anna Wintour herself, you probs don’t need the real life Bottega Veneta version all the celebs are wearing.

Whichever fall boot trend you do decide to go with, you really can’t go wrong. You can only go wrong if you spend $1,500 on a pair of aforementioned trendy designer boots. And hey, if you want to, just go ahead and buy all five pairs of the affordable versions and totally justify purchasing them all because the total cost is less than 1/3 of the designer ones, then go for it! Your secret’s safe with me.

5 Ugly Fall Trends To Skip And What To Wear Instead

Fall is officially here and, even though it might not feel like it yet, according to all of the Instagram influencers clogging up my feed with their best unoriginal fall pics, last Monday was the first official day of fall. Which means that, if you still haven’t switched over your wardrobe yet, it’s officially time to get on that. It’s also time to go shopping for updated fall pieces, because who doesn’t want another excuse to shop? There are some amazing fall trends worth getting on board with right now like, ’70s silhouettes, dad jeans, and animal print. But of course, in keeping the world balanced, for every fall trend that I’m loving, there’s another that I cannot get behind. So here are the five fall trends you won’t see me in, and that I hopefully won’t see you in either, plus some alternative fall trends to try instead.

1. Capes

ModCloth Pardon My French Quarter Cape, $89

I feel like every couple of years this trend comes around and, in the least shocking thing ever, I hate it even more. It’s not only impractical, it’s also ridiculous looking. In my humble-yet-judgy opinion, fashion capes are on the same spectrum as fashion ponchos. And let me clarify something for you all: ponchos are for the rain, and capes are for superheroes. If you’re gonna be a hero, be the kind that doesn’t wear capes. Instead of the costume-y cape trend, opt for a more effortlessly cool and trendy extra-long duster.

Free People Inside Out Cardigan, $168

2. Shakespearian Ruffle Collars

Zara Ruffled Printed Blouse, $69.90

I’m sorry, but no one can pull of this trend. Even Shakespeare himself looked like a straight clown in his ruffled collar. Instead of the obnoxious ruffle collar, try a romantic-inspired balloon sleeve. It’s a way more flattering look and also one that won’t scare away small children. 

525 America Puff Sleeve Pullover, $88

3. Micro Purses

WANT Claim To Fame Mini Crossbody Bag, $24

Again, I can’t get behind an impractical trend. The tiny bag trend was already throwing me off, so now that we’ve gone micro, I’m out. I pray that since we’ve now gone so micro, fashion will switch over to the other extreme, back to oversized Olsen-level hobo bags from here on out. But anyway, these micro bags are bullsh*t. I can’t afford to lose any more credit cards, and this bag doesn’t even look like it could fit my keys and one other thing. So instead of an impractical micro purse, try just a small ’90s style shoulder bag. At the very minimum, you can at least fit your phone and like, a pack of gum.

ASOS DESIGN croc effect 90s shoulder bag, $29

4. Statement Hats

ASOS DESIGN Faux Fur Roll Back Bucket Hat, $23

The name of this trend alone gives me cringe sweats. Like, a statement hat… that doesn’t even make sense. A hat, in itself, is a statement. So now you’re trying to do a hat, that’s also going out of its way to make a statement? I can’t. The only people who can get away with wearing a fuzzy bucket hat are LL Cool J and Cam’ron. Get on their level and then we can talk. In the meantime, maybe try some cool hair accessories instead?

ASOS DESIGN hair clip with pearl glam slogan, $9.50

5. Colored Tights

ASOS DESIGN 50 Denier Tights, $9.50

Colored tights scare me. They are reserved for kindergarten teachers, and kindergarten teachers only. They feel very Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus. Although, I just looked it up and she apparently didn’t actually wear colored tights. But seems like she would have, right? I don’t know, either way, they’re gonna be a no, from me dawg. Instead, try a subtle animal print tight. 

Commando Leopard-Pattern Sheer Tights, $36

So that’s my list of hard nos. Other than these, everything else I’m on board with or, at the very least, can tolerate. I’m sure you will all be commenting with misguided aggression to disagree with my selections as you like to do, so have at it.

5 Dresses To Wear To A Fall Wedding For Under $200

Fall weddings are very popular, and with good reason. Call me basic, but I f*cking love fall, and if one day some brave man does decide to marry me, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be having a fall wedding. Fall is the most ideal time of year for a wedding because of the crisp, cool temperatures and prime weather conditions. It’s not as cold as winter, where you have to take into account whether the possible risk of frostbite is worth ~slaying~ in your mini dress. And, at the same time, it’s not aggressively hot like summer where you have to hold your boobs on the dance floor in fear of sweating off your sticky bra! Yes, I’ve clearly found myself in the aforementioned scenario more than once.

Anyway, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to a fall wedding, then you need to make sure you’re dressed both seasonally- and event-appropriate. First things first, when it comes to dressing for any wedding, you need to take into account the level of formality along with the theme and overall “vibe.” From there, you take into account the actual season. So, since we’re honing in on fall right now, you want to dress in similar defining characteristics of the season, such as deep cool colors, rich burnt tones, dusty muted neutrals, and dense fabrics. This also means you can embrace fall patterns like fall florals, plaids, and herringbone prints. Of course, your dress doesn’t need to adhere to all of these guidelines (and probably shouldn’t because you would look crazy), but it should at least touch on a few in order to be considered seasonally appropriate. Here are my top picks for what to wear as a guest to a wedding this fall.

1. ASOS DESIGN Shirred Pleated Midi Dress, $60

The dusty rose color of this dress is the perfect hue of a feminine pink that’s still rich enough for fall. Not only is the color perfect for the occasion, the three-quarter sleeves plus midi length give it an extra touch of fall-appropriate vibes. I’m obsessed with the pleats and slight balloon sleeve which overall elevate the dress overall and add interesting detail. Interesting detail like the one my weirdo cousin failed to include on the wedding invite to let me know that it was going to be a cash bar. Uh, I don’t have extra funds to splurge on celebrating YOUR love, thanks.

2. Love Like You Burgundy Slip Mini Dress, $98

A slip dress in a burgundy jewel tone is a great option to wear to a fall wedding. Although it’s not exactly going to keep you warm, it still works for a fall wedding because the color is rich and the fabric is dressy. You could also easily just throw on a cute tailored jacket or oversized blazer to wear over the dress into the actual wedding. That way, you won’t feel immediately compelled to head to the bar post-ceremony to get an alcohol blanket going. 

3. Lovers + Friends Lazo Midi Dress, $173

This dress is totally fall-appropriate with its burnt orange hue and midi-length silhouette. It’s elevated without being over the top, and has a few essential fall characteristics that make it seasonally appropriate. It’s also a bold enough color to garner a little extra attention for when you’re attending a wedding solo as the most single person there.

4. Privacy Please Jasmyn Mini Dress, $120

This gorgeous nude color dress is a dream combo of boho and classy, while also still somehow girly and cool. The tulle sleeves and bottom hem allow it to be a fall-appropriate dress while also still remaining somewhat breathable. It’s very fashionable without being too try-hard, cause we all know that’s NEVER the look.

5. Last Forever Navy Blue One-Shoulder Maxi Dress, $58

This navy maxi dress is ideal for a fall black-tie wedding. This dress is elevated, stylish, and unbelievably affordable. I’m not sure what more you could ask for besides like, maybe a hot plus-one as your date? Oh, and definitely an open bar. 

As I mentioned, it’s important to first understand the dressiness level and theme of the wedding before selecting your dress. It might be weird to wear the one-shoulder maxi above to a casual wedding, so just do your homework. And by “do your homework” I mean just actually take a second to read the invitation, k?

Our Collab With Franzia Is Everything You Ever Needed

Whether you’re still in college struggling to make it to your 8am, or a real adult struggling to make it to work on time, you’re probably no stranger to Franzia Wines. It’s the world’s most popular wine, and for good reason. Franzia is affordable, delicious, and comes in bulk quantity—what’s not to love? Because Franzia Wines has always been there for us when we needed them, they partnered with Shop Betches to make an exclusive collection…and it’s everything.

The Franzia collection has three items, so you can pick and choose what to buy for your friends as gifts, or just buy everything for yourself. Go crazy.

The first item in the collection is the Franny Pack, pictured above, which is a total must-have to hold all your darty essentials. It comes with a set of five custom Franzia pins, which I need ASAP. The pins look amaze on the fanny pack like in the picture, or you can use them on literally anything. Denim jacket? Perfect. Backpack? Yes. Wedding dress? Why not. The possibilities are endless.

The fanny pack is perfect for your phone/keys/wallet, but you also need a bag to carry your box of Franzia. We got you. We made a tote bag that is the exact right size for your Franz, and the best part is that there’s a HOLE IN THE SIDE FOR THE TAP. I didn’t design this, but whoever did is a literal genius. Thanks to the giant writing on the side, everyone will probably still know you’re carrying wine, but it’s honestly a great way to make friends at a party. Or don’t, I’m not judging.

The fanny pack and the tote are v important, but my favorite thing from the Franzia collection is probably the Franzia tee. Who doesn’t want to make their plain white t-shirt a little more exciting with some Franzia pouring into a pocket? It’s cute and funny AF, so you definitely need it.

Don’t miss your chance to shop our exclusive Shop Betches x Franzia Collection, so you can have all the Franzia stuff your heart desires.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Has Fall Staples You’ll Want To Stock Up On

If you’re not already aware via every fashion blogger on your Instagram feed, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially here. And, per usual, this sale does not disappoint. The whole idea of the sale is to encourage you, me, and the rest of consumerism America to purchase all your new fall pieces now before you actually really need them. And, in order to convince us to do so, they offer great discounts on said pieces. This isn’t like a normal sale, where they discount all the old sh*t—these are new pieces with limited-time prices. Of course, who’s to say you’ll still want these items when fall does finally roll around and there’s a whole new set of covetable fall arrivals? But that’s not the point. 

Given how good the deals are from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it seems like the financially responsible thing to do here is just go ahead and order these great fall pieces now, before the price shoots back up. But, fair warning, everything is going super fast… it was actually tough to even write this article considering how quickly all the sizes keep selling out. So, if you like something, don’t hesitate. See it? Like it? Want it? You got it…if you order ASAP!

1. Sanctuary City Knit Oversize Blazer

Now: $92.90
After Sale: $139

This oversize blazer, which is also available in plus sizes, is the perfect combo of cool and chic. You could totally wear it to the office with full confidence that you look super professional, then out to happy hour and still look stylish. Depending how strict your office dress code is, you could even just switch out your work blouse top underneath for a casual tank or tee. You could even wear this blazer out and about à la Hailey Baldwin Bieber with some cut-off jean shorts and chunky dad sneakers. Simply put, this blazer can pretty much be worn all year, so there’s legit no reason not to buy it.

2. Something Navy Midi Slip Skirt

Now: $49.90
After Sale: $79

Slip midi skirts are a fall staple, and this floral one by Something Navy is a true fall wardrobe must-have. It also comes in that leopard print every single girl in New York City is wearing this summer. Whatever pattern you choose, you can easily pair this skirt with a cute graphic tee for early fall when it’s still relatively warm out, then transition it for late-fall/winter with a chunky sweater. Not to mention, this too is a piece that works for both the office and the weekend because it’s both stylish and HR-approved.

3. Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt

Now: $99.90
After Sale: $158

Okay, I already know what you’re thinking—that’s a deal for a flannel?! Hear me out, it totally is. That’s because this isn’t just a regular flannel, it’s a Rails flannel. They’re super soft, timeless, and just pretty much all around the sh*t. Plus, unlike your Forever21 flannel, this one will actually last you more than one season. I personally LOVE this navy one with the pink stripes, but they’re all cute so I would highly recommend getting at least one. 

4. Good American Good Curve High Waist Straight Leg Jeans

Now: $123.90
After Sale: $185

Everyone’s fave Kardashian, Khloé, gave us 100 more reasons to call her our favorite with the creation of her denim-focused size-inclusive brand, Good American (check out the plus sizes here). And now, she gave us more reasons to like her with these incredible black high waist straight leg jeans that I NEED for fall. Everyone who has tried Good American denim raves about the fit, so if you haven’t gotten on the bandwagon yet, now’s the time to do so while you can get this pair for more than $60 off.

5. Givenchy 47mm Sunglasses

Now: $216.90
After Sale: $325

I obviously realize that not everyone is currently in the market for designer sunglasses but, if you are, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the time and place to treat yourself to a pair. They have all kinds of styles from top brands like Fendi, Dior, Tory Burch, Ray-Ban, etc. They even have less pricier styles from Rebecca Minkoff, Kate Spade, and Marc Jacobs. So, even if this gorgeous Givenchy style I’ve selected isn’t exactly the style you personally want, there are a ton more options. 

6. Topshop Topstitched Crop Twill Jacket

Now: $52.90
After Sale: $80

Cropped jackets are the ideal transitional jacket from season to season. This oversize cropped one from Topshop can be just as easily worn now as it could be in a few months from now paired with a fitted turtleneck underneath. Okay, maybe not worn exactly now given we’re in the middle of a heat wave, but then again, with everywhere blasting their AC as a result, you may want to have it with you just in case. Right now it’s only $53, which is an unbeatable price for a jacket you can legit wear all year.

7. Marc Fisher LTD Unique Bootie

Now: $129.90
After Sale: $199.95

This is the perfect simple bootie that will pair with everything in your closet this fall. It actually comes in four different colors, all of which are chic and easy to pair. You obviously have to get the black pair to have as your basic staple bootie for fall and winter, but then you def need the red pair to elevate an otherwise basic outfit and make a statement. Of course, then you also have to have the dark gray pair for when you need something slightly softer than black. And then, you need the pale pink pair because they’re honestly just beautiful. You basically need all four colors, so you might as well just go all in while they’re on sale.

Like I said, if you haven’t already checked out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, then you need to head over to their site right now before your size is sold out. Honestly, that report that’s due to your boss by end-of-day today can wait—this is important. Hopefully, they will understand. The prices go back up on August 5, so hurry hurry hurry!

3 Trendy Faux Fur Coats For Under $100

November chills force us to start layering and packing up our short-lived fall outfits. But just because it’s cold AF doesn’t mean you can’t look good. Thankfully, faux fur jackets are a trend that allow us to be both stylish and warm. That’s why I’ve rounded up some of the cutest faux furs. Perfect for all your favorite holiday activities like blacking out on the sidewalk and chasing down your uber in 30-degree weather.

So don’t call PETA on me, because these warm and stylish coats are all #vegan and #crueltyfree.
