The Top 5 Fall Trends to Try on a Budget

If you could sift through shows and just rip your favorite pieces right off the runway to build your wardrobe, you would, right? But c'mon, that's not realistic. You're a real person with a real budget. But just because you may not have that Oprah-sized bank account doesn't mean you can't look fresh and on trend. Seriously—one stop into H&M is all you need. To prove it, we chatted with the chain's head of design, Pernilla Wohlfahrt, about the key trends you should test out this season if you are on a budget.

"Belted coats are always so easy. They are great for breezy days to stay warm and can be unbelted and worn loose if needed."

"Flared trousers are an essential wardrobe staple. The key is the perfect length so that it grazes the floor. Pair them with a stacked heel to give the illusion of a longer leg."

"Florals can be worn through the year. It’s all about the print and color. Dark floral prints are always romantic and lovely to wear during the autumn months."

"These pieces [femme blouses with lace details] are always classic and can transform your work ensemble from day to night. The lace shouldn’t be too revealing, but add that elegant detail to the overall look."

"The silhouette on this dress is very forgiving and can be easily accessorized. Try cinching in the waist with a thin belt."
