There’s a chill in the air, leaves on the ground, and it’s all pumpkin spice and cinnamon everything. When the season changes, it’s time to update your wardrobe, too. Say goodbye to sundresses and shorts, and hello to cozy, chunky-knit sweaters and boots. This fall, it’s all about layering versatile pieces to create outfits that work for any occasion, from a dinner party to a casual brunch with friends. The trick to layering and reusing pieces for different looks? Accessorize accordingly—you’ll be amazed at the way simply adding an eyecatching necklace can wake up a dress and sweater combination, or how swapping your everyday handbag for an oversized clutch can turn jeans, a sweater, and faux-fur vest into an evening-ready ensemble.
We’ve selected nine essential pieces for your fall wardrobe—all under $150. The lineup includes a pair of tailored jeans, better-than classic black pants, a luxe faux-fur vest, a swingy dress, an embellished top, a fuzzy sweater, everyday booties, and metallic flats. If you’re traveling this November, consider this a packing cheat sheet—these finds are all you need! This suitcase-size assortment of nine easygoing options mixes (and remixes) to create a complete Thanksgiving-weekend wardrobe. It will take you from the dinner table, to the couch for football, even to the mall for Black Friday sales. Now you won’t have to go through the trouble of checking in your bag or adding a huge suitcase to your already-crowded car trunk. The best part: all of these items are both stylish and comfortable, so you’ll look chic whether catching up with friends over cocktails or reaching for that second helping of pumpkin pie (we say go for it!).
