Where Fall Fashion Meets Comfort and Affordability

saleWhoever said that women’s clothing can’t be fashionable, comfortable, and affordable was mistaken. Thankfully, as fashion continues to change, accomplishing this is easier than ever before. Read on to discover a great look for fall that meets all three of these criteria!

If you’re an avid pinner on Pinterest or enjoy flipping through fashion magazines, you’ve probably noticed that women’s fashion has turned away from skin tight shirts towards those that are more loose-fitting. This is one of the reasons that knitted sweaters – like the ones your grandmother used to make you – have become so popular. Not only are they extremely comfortable to wear, but they are also very appealing on most body types. Check out this Windowpane Sweater from Forever 21.

Since these oversized sweaters are, as the name suggests, “oversized,” you’ll want to pair them with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans to balance out the look. Personally, I prefer wearing leggings because the material is soft, almost like a pair of sweatpants. I especially love this combination on days where I  don’t want to wear something too constricting. Instead of throwing on my “lazy day clothes”, a.k.a. sweatpants and sweatshirts, I opt for this outfit so that I can feel relaxed and confident at the same time. You can find a pair of inexpensive leggings at almost any women’s fashion store, although I find that Forever 21 has the best selection. Here’s a pair of black leggings to match the black and white knitted sweater featured above. While this particular pair is black, they come in a variety of colors.

Now that you’ve got this part of your outfit covered, you can complete it with the perfect pair of boots. To be honest, you really can’t go wrong with the type of boots you choose. Whether you prefer a pair of UGG boots or riding boots, your leggings will fit perfectly inside of them. Although, if I may, I suggest a pair of ankle boots to go with this outfit.  While both the UGG boots and riding boots are still in fashion, the ankle boots are the newest trend. There is a large selection of ankle boots in the stores, but I happened to pick this pair from Forever 21. If you can’t wear heels, don’t worry! There are plenty of flat ankle boots out there to choose from.

You can buy this featured outfit for less than $55 ($53.40 to be exact). And the best part is that once you purchase a pair of boots that you love, the most expensive part, then you can spend your money on sweaters to go with them.

If you’re looking for some new outfits this fall, I hope you take my advice. This is truly an outfit that you can live your life in.
