Bringing Color Into Budget-Friendly Fall Fashion

There’s no doubt that over the past two days many of you found yourself doing at least one of three things: picking apples, watching football, or whipping up some new fall-inspired recipe (for us it was a pot of mom’s chili). Fall is here. And we love it. Yes, because of the vibrant foliage, the crisp air, and the impending lead-in to the holiday season. But if we’re being totally honest, it’s also because of the fashion. Fall is hands-down the best season for fashion. Tailored blazers, cozy knits, chunky layers, and leather boots bring out the most stylish version of all of us.

But embracing the cooler weather doesn’t mean you have to hand in your style personality with it. Sure stores are stocked with predominantly darker, more neutral colored clothing. But we still love our pinks, our mints, our neon! Inspired by the new customizable Moto X cell phones (have you seen them? they come in hundreds of customizable color combinations), we each took a favorite fall look (classic neutral and fall prep) and restyled it to be less of what you’d expect for fall and more, well, us. Coincidentally, “us” meant incorporating pastel and neon colors–trends typically reserved for the spring summer.

What summer style trends are you not wanting to pack away? Any ideas how to incorporate it into your fall attire?
