YOUR LIFE HOLD Fall 2011 Must Haves

Posted: Updated:

It’s time to start trading in your tank tops and flip flops for long sleeves and boots. Fortunately, transforming your wardrobe from summer to fall can be simple and inexpensive with items such as faux leather jackets, comfy sweaters, and colored pants/denim, a few fall 2011 must haves.  Today we focused on these trends along with a couple looks for the guys.

The Faux Leather Jacket: We’ve touched on this trend before, but it’s such a hot one that we had to show it off again. Today we took a simple tank/skirt combination and added a turquoise faux leather jacket from Forever 21 and a pair of boots to create an updated look for the fall. These jackets retail from $25 to $50 at Forever 21 and can range over $100 at other stores, but you can find them as low at $12 at Plato’s Closet.

The Sweater:  The maxi dress was a popular and comfortable summer piece that can be worn into the fall by simply layering it with a sweater. Add a belt or a cute pair of boots and your outfit is complete! A sweater at the mall can easily cost you $30 to $40, but you can find the entire outfit at Plato’s Closet starting at the same price!

Colored Denim: Adding a pair of colored denim is a fun way to add variety to your wardrobe. It’s a look that can be sported with light pieces while it’s still hot outside or warm jacks and boots when it begins to cool down. Also, the Colored bottoms go great with neutrals and different colored accessories! You can buy a pair of colored denim for $10-$15 at Plato’s Closet instead of spending $30-$60 at other retail stores.

Guys Looks: Fall fashion is all about the mixing styles to achieve a sophisticated yet casual appearance. We showed two looks today inspired by the fall 2011 edition of InStyle Magazine. Both looks can be achieved for under $75 when you shop at Plato’s Closet!
