I’ve worn my basic white tank top and black nylon shorts more times than I care to admit this summer, so there’s no surprise I’m excited for a change in seasons and a change in my daily rotation of staples. With the cooler weather approaching, it’s time to give the basics in our wardrobes a refreshing update to get us prepared (and looking stylish) for fall and winter ahead. The best part is that you don’t have to spend a ton of money on basics to achieve a chic and expensive-looking ensemble.
Below, I’m sharing a number of wallet-friendly fall staples that are versatile, chic, and you can easily mix and match with other trend-forward pieces to create a modern, autumnal look. From trench coats to cardigans and black boots, keep scrolling for the budget-friendly basics (most under $100) that will see you through the cold-weather season ahead.
