It’s time to layer up, alright. But, that doesn’t mean you’ve got to empty your closet and re-stock it full of this Fall’s trendiest, swell fashion pieces. Unless, you can dip your hands into a bank account brimming with dollars. Either way, you can always make a statement without caching on the most expensive brands that you can get your hands on.

Top shopping tips to get Fall Fashion for less

There are simple rules you can follow to keep up with fashion and making your outfits appropriate for the season. Follow these and you won’t have to run out of fashion and fab clothes to wear ever again:

1. Choose one or two trends to highlight your look. You can’t throw in all of the fashionable pieces into one ensemble! And even if you could, there’s no need to overdo it. Besides, when there’s too many statement pieces on you, you’ll be far from making a strong impression. The onlooker’s eyes are not really guided to focus on the trend you want to convey.

2. Keep it simple and comfortable. Look like you live and breathe fashion. The ones who really dig it in the raw never style up like they’re gaga over the latest clothes, shoes, accessories and what not. It’s called, “effortless styling”.

3. Get your focus on. Decide on your main piece then go shop! The top local retail brands offer a wide range of the trendiest pieces you can find on the runway but smartly suited for the streets. If you’re looking for a specific style you can’t find on physical stores, there’s always Amazon. Just keep in mind that there are certain fashion pieces you’d rather get in a store, such as bodycon dresses.

4. Look for versatile pieces. You want to be able to wear your trend many different ways. So, when you try on your focal piece, try to wear it with other stuff from the same store just to see how it will look like worn different ways — layering for Fall will often allow you to do that.

5. Build the rest of your outfit around your focal piece. Stay focused. Don’t let your supporting pieces steal the spotlight. Keep everything else toned down but well coordinated down to your hair, makeup and accessories.

6. Don’t forget to compare prices before you buy!
