You may already have a to-do list stored in the back of your mind for when precious downtime suddenly enters your universe. For some (ahem, me), that may be to lounge and watch endless episodes of Friends (for the hundredth time). For others, it may be tackling household chores, and so on. But what’s one task we can all unanimously agree is a must when there’s time to kill? Shopping, of course.

But the reality is that most of us usually only have a few minutes of downtime during our busy days. So to allow you to get the most out of your shopping break, I curated a list of the coolest fashion items online right here to avoid wasting time sifting through everything the internet as to offer. And because I know nobody wants to drain their bank accounts just because they have a few moments to spare, I emphasized cheap fashion items here—as in, everything under $50.

Keep scrolling to see my edit of the 46 most stylish affordable fall pieces to shop right now. I also grouped everything below by category—skirts and dresses, shoes, tops and knits, denim, and bags—to make the whole process even easier. Go on, you deserve this.
