Friday Five | Splurge vs. Save – 5 Fall Staples

Happy Friday, babes! With every new season, it brings trends. And naturally, if you are like me, the desire to add a few new closet additions. But it doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to stay fashion forward this season! Sticking to staples can make the world of difference, and justify the spend when thinking long term. Today on the Friday five I am sharing 5 Fall staples found in closet, with a splurge vs. save round up of each! Let’s get started, shall we?

 | Lightweight jacket | Naturally with cooler weather, ‘outerwear’ rolls into play. Every Fall, a lightweight jacket tends to be worn on the daily. Pop it over a cami, that chambray dress, or pumpkin colored sweater to complete your look this season! The trending moto style is one of those pieces I’ve had on wishlist for a while. Not sure if the style is right for me, I recently found this affordable option to try and love it! It has all the elements of style without the price tag. And a utility jacket is classic staple year after year. It’s lightweight and functional. The option to splurge on a designer brand or save is virtually everywhere this season. The choice is yours!

TWO | Sweater | Sweaters are a classic thread in closet and a MUST have for Fall. Having missed out on sizing during the #nsale, I’ve been waiting for a restock on this gorgeous (and soft) v-neck FP sweater. I’ve found this style to be an easy transition piece. Wear it solely with a bralette underneath with hotter temps and layer when the weather cools. And the cardigan? It’s in the definition of Fall fashion! Search retailer’s sites this time of year and the cardi is bound to be front and center! Splurge on a trending color block cardi, or save $40 on another option that looks similar!

THREE | Denim pant | The year round staple is your classic jean. Ya’ll know my jean fetish is extensive. And my desire to try new styles never changes. Sticking to staples, the black skinny jean fits right in the mix. It pairs well with the plaid and colors offered this season. And your classic medium washed denim is similarly versatile.

FOUR| Boot | Don’t think for one second I’d leave out the staple of the season! The boot is a classic essential for every fashionista this time of year. Pair it with a skinny jean, sweater dress, leggings … it really can be an everyday shoe, easily. Making a statement with your boot of choice is the seasonal trend. Go bold with an OTK boot or add a pop of leopard for added fun! Or if you’d rather, the neutral bootie is a classic versatile choice.

FIVE | Accessories | Staples stated, there are a couple #musthave accessories still to mention. A classic blanket scarf is vital for layering this Fall. Some people love to spend a pretty penny on a cashmere scarf, but there are several other options that achieve the same completed look for less! As for handbags, many choose to sport the real deal. If you are like me, you tend to splurge on all the other staples, leaving you with little left for accessories. Want to look the part for less than $50? I’ve got you covered!
