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!
