Steals

Here are some cute options to pick up from the mall that won’t break your bank!

This denim jacket from Forever 21 ($34.80) would definitely suit you if you’re into edgier styles. Don a simple black dress and pair of colored oxford shoes to rock this look. Top off your outfit with accent jewelry of your choice and a knit hat.

This classic denim jacket from Macy’s ($49.99) works for any style because it can be dressed up or down. While the weather is still changing, it can be worn with a chiffon shirt, some colored jeans and nice black flats. Accessorize your look with some silver jewelry and a messy high bun!

An open-front blazer like this one from Nordstrom ($29) looks gorgeous on any shape! Because the sleeves are slouchy, it can be worn to a casual outing, but it can also be worn to a dressier event due to its sleek lines and tailoring.

It’s clear that leather is a huge trend for the fall! This hooded motorcycle jacket from Charlotte Russe ($39.99) will not only keep you warm while you’re headed to class, but it will also make you look great as you go! Perfect for the days when it’s just too cold to function, this jacket will keep you both warm and stylish. Throw on a graphic tee and your favorite pair of knee-high boots to complete this look.

For a more feminine spin-off of the classic biker look, don this tan faux leather jacket by Bagatelle ($49.99). Your best pair of jeans, a printed chiffon shirt and black loafers will offer a girly touch to this typically masculine piece.

If you’re looking for a faux leather jacket that isn’t black or brown, head to Wet Seal to pick up this wine-colored jacket ($36.90)—the color was all over the fall runways!

You’ll turn heads in this southwestern-print jacket from Forever 21 ($49.80) when you pair it with a solid fitted tee and black pants! It’s super cute and on trend. The cool pattern and the off-center zipper will give an edge to your look!
