As we welcome a new season, it’s time for a new splurge vs. save! And with the spirit of a new season, I wanted to highlight a few trends at both price points. Without further ado, here is a brand new splurge vs. save: fall trends!

While this is not a complete list of fall trends, I did include a few of the trends I have my eye on for the new season. Here are a few of my favorites:

Velvet Tee: Splurge: $228 // Save: $109

Whether it is a handbag, shoes or clothing, velvet is everywhere this season. I was particularly attracted to the idea of a velvet tee — it’s an easy way to incorporate the trend into your fall wardrobe and it’s perfect for this transitioning time of the year. There are so many to pick from (see a huge selection here) but this splurge and save version are almost identical.

High-waisted Jeans: Splurge: $70 // Save: $49.99

I have jumped on the high-waisted jean train and I don’t think I could love it more! I bought this pair during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and after being backordered, they finally arrived. I wore them to NYC last weekend and they are a new favorite. In general, high-waisted jeans are comfortable and instantly elongate your legs. I love both of these jeans featured in this collage and the best part: BOTH the splurge and save jeans are under $100!

Bow Mules: Splurge: $299 // Save: $69.95

Mules seem to be the “it” shoe for fall. I have a few pairs and I totally get the obsession — as comfortable as slippers but acceptable to wear in public! And although all kinds of mules are on trend for the season, so many mules feature one of my favorite details: bows. There is something about adding a bow to a piece of clothing or an accessory that makes it irresistible. As for these bow mules, the splurge and save versions are very similar. For the purposes of this look, I went with the black, but the save version is available in several colors and is under $70. I have my eye on the pink version!

What fall trends have you been loving? Thanks for reading, friends! See you back here tomorrow for a full recap of NYFW!

  1. You’re always so good at finding dupes for pricer trends; nearly everything looks exact to the splurge! I had a velvet tee years ago that I ended up getting rid of, so you can imagine how I’m regretting that right about now, lol! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a very Happy Wednesday!



  2. WoW, these are identical dupes!!! Super cool, I am all about Loafers this Fall but have yet to get any! CUTE!
