seasonal handbagsFall is here, which means it’s time to toss out your old duds and make room for more, right? Wrong! With a little creativity, you can update your closet in a snap!

1. Sweater Weather The old saying has never been more true! Fall weather means chillier temps. Lucky for budget fashionistas, a surprisingly hot look for this fall is the classic knit sweater. So before you snub that snuggly wool turtleneck, try pairing it with a sleek skirt or a pair of high heels to add glamour. This season is all about surprising combinations, so see what you can to do glitz up your warm sweaters and wear this look for less.

2. Pretty Patterns Ornate patterns are in this seasons, from dresses to handbags, and even shoes!

Many designers are producing beautiful baroque patterns with a 1960s-70s vibe. Before you run about to get a pricey reproduction, check your local thrift stores for patterned pieces that will update any outfit. Be sure to check for wear and tear, and be prepared to make some minor alterations or repairs when finding a good vintage bargain.

3. Colorblock Cutie Colorblocking is a seasonal trend that just won’t quit. This look’s staying power means it’s probably a sound investment to pick up a designer piece with strong colorblocking elements. Or, you can create your own colorblock look by pairing several boldly colored items together. Think green skinny jeans with a blue ballet flat and a bright purple tee. You can even take the look further by applying a bright lip color in trendy pink or violet and let your natural features pop!

4. Popular Peplum This season’s runway has been filled with flirty peplum pieces. The flouncy overskirt looks great on dresses, jackets, and tops, and adds just the right amount of drama to your ensemble. Stylish seamstresses take note: this look is easy to create on your home sewing machine, and many simple patterns are available online.

5. Custom Collars A simple way to add a lot of flair to an outfit is a striking collar. Spotted on several runways this season, the collar can be a haute couture piece of jewelery, or a bedazzled piece of fabric attached to your basic button down. Collars are a fun way to bring new life to business wear, as well as more casual looks. Try a kicky collar on a plain white blouse, or maybe with a low cut tee and a bare neck for extra drama.

No matter what your budget or level of daring, you’re sure to find a few seasonal trends this fall that will add oomph to your personal style!
