6 Fall Trends That Are Better on a Budget

When it comes to fashion trends and price points, unfortunately, I’ve found that not all are created equal. While that doesn’t mean that there’s any one trend that’s totally out of reach for those on a budget, it does imply that finding affordable versions of certain ones simply comes easier than others. Take the fall trends I’ll be highlighting today as an example. While you could find pieces in animal print, statement earrings, and Western-themed items at any price point, you’ll soon see that the under-$100 iterations we’ve gathered below feel nothing short of a million bucks—meaning there’s really no reason to spend more.

So if you’re on a budget and are looking to save but still want to snatch up some affordable and trendy items for fall, let me suggest that you consider one of the six categories you’re about to read about and shop when you continue on.

Animal Print

Leopard, python, cheetah, zebra—you can find all things animal at any brand big or small right now.

Available in sizes 0 to 14. 

Statement Earrings

Oversize, shiny, and vibrant statement earrings were all over the fall runways, and luckily, most of our favorite versions to buy now just happen to be under $100.


Color trends are ideal for anyone on a budget because they can be found in countless iterations and price points. This is especially true about fall’s red fever.


All things Western are trending for fall from clothing to (my personal favorite) boots and belts.


Neon! Doesn’t it make you excited just thinking about it? I’m looking forward to this trend serving as a pop of color in a sea of typically dark fall and winter wear.

Available in sizes 0 to 14. 

Patent Leather

The beauty of patent leather is that it’s a material that actually elevates any item you use it in. From bags to shoes to a crop top—which would look so good styled under a blazer, hint-hint.
