‘Tis the season for sweaters, Pumpkin Spice lattes and an above average amount of photos in Holiday outfits with our families. It is actually my favorite time of year. The smell of the fireplace with a nice glass of wine and a movie all wrapped up in a blanket is a little slice of heaven.
If you’re anything like me, you’re feeling the pressure to shop the cutest trends but don’t want to break the bank.
Here are a few of my favorite trends and how to shop them on a budget!
Leopard is back along with zebra, python, and cheetah. You can currently find these hot patterns at brands big or small!
Think shoes, jackets, shirts (imagine that under a nice blazer?!), belts and purses!
2018 is all about maximum drama in the form of earrings! They can turn a casual outfit into a glammed up look in 5 seconds and can be found in almost any store.
Color trends are budget friendly because they can be found in every store, in so many styles, and at so many different price points!
Classic patterns like Glen Plaid are making a huge comeback this Fall. Look for blazers, skirts and over-sized coats!
Now that you know the top trends, you have to know how to get it without regretting it! When shopping for the season, follow these 2 important steps:
Review what you have:
People have a habit of accumulating and holding onto things they rarely wear while continuing to buy new clothes. That is me to a fault.
Now that you know what the trends are, go through your closet and find what fits in your vision for your Fall wardrobe. Put some time aside this weekend to try everything on and start to sell or donate what you don’t need! That is a perfect way to get organized, give back and stay on budget.
Know where to shop:
Do the math. Would you rather get 10 cute outfits at Target or one sweater from Nordstrom? Kohl’s, Zara, and H&M are just a few examples of stores with the hottest clothes for work and play at a reasonable cost. And if you haven’t heard of Nordstrom Rack, let me change your life…
And hello, the best part about 2018 is that you don’t even have to leave your house to find that exact perfect closet staple! Sign up for newsletters at your favorite stores so you can take advantage of discounts and get updated on free shipping and sales as soon as they happen.
Knowing the trends and where to snag them at a good price is KEY to your budget-friendly shopping spree success.
So grab your credit card, your best friend and treat yourself!
