Fall Fashion on a Budget

Now that fall is in full swing, it is time to switch up your attire for the cooler months! With a changing season comes new fashion trends and being a college student on a budget should not mean your wardrobe has to suffer. Throughout this article, you will learn where to find the hottest fall trends without breaking the bank.

The Trends:


Nothing says fall quite like a brand new flannel! This item is a must have. Flannels are great because they are soft, comfortable, and keep you warm.

Dresses with knee socks

Who says you can’t wear dresses in the fall? Trade in your summer maxi and flip flops for a comfty t-shirt dress and knee socks! This combination is girly and feminine, but still cozy for those cooler days.

Riding boots

You’re going to need a cute pair of riding boots to compliment that dress and knee socks! Riding boots are a must have for the fall season because they are durable in the colder weather, but still fashionable.

Oversized sweaters

For those days when you’re running late to class, an oversized sweater and leggings will become your BFF. Cute and cozy is the goal here, friends.

Chunky scarves


A scarf ties every autumn outfit together. If you live in a state where the weather gets extremely cold, you can never have enough chunky scarves in your collection.
