With the pool floatie– and rosé-filled days of summer behind us, it's officially time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. We fully endorse repurposing pieces from previous seasons, but chances are that you'll want to add a few new pieces to your existing wardrobe to take it into fall. However, we also realize expenses can add up if you're not careful with your selections.
To ease the seasonal strain on your budget, we set out on a mission to bring you the most important pieces to transition your wardrobe seamlessly between summer and fall. And with nothing over $200 (and many pieces far below it), we're confident you'll find everything you need here to prepare for the coming season. With this assortment of basics and more trend-driven pieces, your wardrobe will be ready to conquer this transitional period in no time.
