Want to embrace an autumn trend or two, but buying new clothes just isn't in the budget? Sola Adelowo, image consultant at ImageCubeLLC, shows you how to update your wardrobe this fall without breaking the bank.
Portfolio and envelope bags are versatile pieces that transition well from day to evening. They are available in a variety of sizes and give you the opportunity to combine trends! Try a structured portfolio in cheerfully colored animal print, and wear it with its attached chain to add some edge.
Colors and textures inspired by insect wings are popping up in every accessory imaginable! When you move, the shiny material catches the light and may even shift colors, much like the '90s hologram trend. Keep it current by selecting iridescent pieces in modern silhouettes, and keep other accessories to a minimum - you don't want to risk a shine overload!
Mixed metals and sharp lines in jewelry add interest when combined with fall clothing in soft fabrics and traditional shapes. A statement necklace or pair of earrings is a great way to dip your toe into the punk revival. Chunky heeled boots with exaggerated tread are also making a comeback, so it may be time to dig some out of your closet!
Always on-trend and classy, animal prints are easily translated to a wide variety of accessories. From understated, traditional leopard print pumps to neon zebra or giraffe print scarves, there is a wild print for everyone. Fur (or faux fur) is also very relevant for fall. Visit secondhand stores to find gorgeous vintage pieces to keep you warm, but resist the temptation to buy the store's entire stock. With anything animal-inspired, less is more!
The changing seasons offer a great opportunity to freshen your wardrobe, but you absolutely don't have to spend a fortune to do it. These suggestions are just starting points - find a trend that works for you and have fun with it!
