And now that September is officially upon us, we can finally see the fall weather coming around the corner. And while I have no doubt that you are fully stocked with pumpkin spice candles and crock pot recipes, I'm wondering- is your wardrobe ready for the new season? This week's Top 10 is all about the biggest trends of the season and how you can incorporate them into your fall wardrobe for less than $100, so get cozy in your new autumn throw and let's talk fashion! :)

Sweaters are always a fall staple, and this year slouchy tunics and knit flares are the freshest take on the look.

60s-era swing dresses get a kick of downtown cool this season with non-frilly accessories, like the Chelsea boot.

If you love your neons then you are in luck! This fall is all about the unconventional color palette. And if the brights just don't feel right, opt for a faux-fur, like on the bag above, to make it seem more weather-appropriate.

Normcore, or the art of looking average, is having a MAJOR moment in fashion right now. Simple colors, shapes, and an overall lack of decoration looks ultra-modern and sleek.



boots  |  hat  |  wrap  |  runway

Western wear has never looked chicer than when paired with sleek black accessories. This season's western style is darker and moodier, making it less rodeo and more fashion-forward.

Layering is amped up a notch for a fall with the resurrection of the dress over pants combo. An easy way to try the look is with a dress that has some drape over fitted cigarette trousers.

While fur is pretty much a given for fall, this year's update comes in the form of plush, cozy shearlings and bold-colored faux furs.

After several seasons, prints are still thriving. This season the print du jour comes in the form of rave-style, trippy, op-art prints.

From demure sheer panels to entirely sheer dresses, from mesh panels to peek-a-boo lace, there are so many ways to show some skin this fall.

Chunky knits and fair isle prints are the most festive way to stay cozy and warm when the temperatures drop.
