Fall Fever Part II…

 While I spent some time with DVF in my last post, it’s time to get reacquainted with our old friends, Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Ann Taylor Loft.  All three stores offer fashion forward looks for a more affordable price.  Although it’s always great to have nice things, sometimes looking chic can really break the bank.

After scouring the websites and runway reviews for these fab outfitters, I came across some amazing finds that will definitely give your fall wardrobe a fresh update.  Like many of the high-end designers, these fall collections feature bold colors like maroon, burgundy, turquoise, orange/coral, mustard, and purple, revamped classic autumn fabrics like tweed and houndstooth, and intricate patterns that add interest to an otherwise average outfit without being overbearing.  In keeping with summer’s biggest trend, color-blocking is still in high gear, perhaps most notably in accessories.  Sometimes a unexpected pop of color (think bangle, bag, or earrings) can transform an outfit from “drab to fab” instantly, and often for under $50.

Check out a few of my favorite finds below:
