10 Fall Must Haves Under $50

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bryant chapter.

Now that it’s becoming fall,  it’s pretty much sweater weather —  yay! New Englanders know the full meaning of fall. It means the mornings are freezing and then by the time you’re out of your class you are sweating in your pants and sweater. Below we are going to list our top 10 items we recommend having in your fall wardrobe, all for under $50!


1. A lightweight jacket

With the weather starting to get cooler in the mornings and evenings, it is going to be to your benefit to have a lightweight jacket you can throw on for your walk to class when it’s chilly outside. This one from Forever 21 is perfect because the color is very in for fall and goes with a lot.

2. A long sleeve dress 

The fall weather is so unpredictable. In the mornings you may be freezing and then by lunch you’re sweating; we totally feel you. One way to get around this is by wearing a long sleeve dress. The sleeves will keep you warm in the morning but when it gets a little warmer out you will be happy you have a dress on.

3. A flannel

This one goes along the lines of having a light jacket. Fall is all about layering so that when the weather changes halfway through the day, you can take a layer off. Flannels are a perfect way to layer and add something fun to your outfit.

4. A pair of dark jeggings

As the weather gets cold that unfortunately means making the change from shorts to pants. Along with putting away shorts, fall means making the transition away from white and lighter jeans and going for darker shades. If you’re like us then you hate wearing pants, let alone having to put on uncomfortable jeans. We recommend a comfy pair of dark jeggings like these ones from American Eagle!

5. Jogger pants 

We all have those days when we wake up and want to just go to class in sweatpants. Well collegiettes, now’s the time. The weather is cool enough for you to finally wear them to class. If you still want to be comfy but look cute, we suggest a pair of comfy jogger pants. It’s like you’re wearing your favorite sweatpants from track in high school, but you actually look pretty put together.

6. A comfy sweater

As we mentioned, fall = sweater weather. Get ready for the fall season by stocking up on sweaters like this one. This one features some fun shoulder cutouts and a waffle knit to add a little extra something to your look.

7. White low top converse  

These are pretty much a must have in all the seasons, let’s be honest. A pair of white low top converse goes with almost any outfit you could put together for fall. They work with dresses, shorts, jeans, and leggings. The opportunities for wearing these are endless.

8. Brown ankle booties

Fall is the perfect time to start wearing boots again. We recommend a pair of cute brown suede ankle booties. A shoe like this will pair perfectly with jeans, leggings, dresses, and skirts. The option from Lulu’s shown below has a slight heel, but you could always go without, too.

9. A bomber jacket 

This is the perfect transition jacket for fall, and are so in this season. Bomber jackets add a new spin on any outfit and make you look that much cuter. This one from Boohoo comes in many colors including black, khaki, navy, stone, and wine, so there are options for everyone.

10. A cardigan 

Cardigans are perfect for layering in the fall. When you are chilly, you can keep it on and then once it gets hot you can easily take it off and still look cute. Layer a cardigan over your favorite tank or t-shirt for the perfect fall look.
