49 Under $49: Fall’s Most Stylish Affordable Shopping Guide

Whether you’re lamenting the end of summer or are highly anticipating the start of fall, one of the best things you can do to either boost your excitement or tide you over for the changing season is to do a little shopping in preparation. But clothes, like everything else these days, can be expensive—and I find fall clothes to be more expensive than summer. Luckily, I put together a massive shopping guide of dozens of seasonal items (49 to be exact) that clock in at less than $49.

I spent hours (I’m not exaggerating) scrolling through sites like Nordstrom, H&M, Shopbop, and Reformation in search of the coolest, most expensive-looking items that you can buy for not a lot of money. In the massive roundup below, you’ll find plenty of great basics, trend pieces, and accessories. After you scroll through, I have a hunch you’ll be ready for fall’s imminent arrival. (I know I am.)
