If you’re looking to add some of-the-moment styles to your fall wardrobe then you’ve come to the right place, because today I’m sharing some of the major fall trends along with plenty of affordable shopping picks. Whether you’re into ballet flats or bomber jackets, keep scrolling for the items that will keep you looking stylish this season. And the best part? Everything is under $150.

From oversize silhouettes to cropped styles, the fashion crowd can’t get enough of this season’s trending bomber jackets. They’re easy to dress up or down and they add an instantly cool touch to any outfit.

It’s all about long and streamlined silhouettes that fall down past the ankles this season. Whether you go for a skirt, dress, or coat—maxi hemlines are one of the coolest ways to look on-trend this season.

Whether you go for a low and loose silhouette or a high-waisted wide-leg style, relaxed jeans are here to stay for fall 2022—and they couldn’t be cooler.

Tap into your inner coastal-grandma and opt for an oversize striped sweater—a (timeless!) trend that’s everywhere right now.

Ballet flats are back for fall 2022 and while you may not be able to get a famous pair of Miu Miu’s on a budget, there are still plenty of chic options to pull off the trend this season.

Long, silky slip dresses are in the limelight this autumn. Pair them with oversize leather bomber jackets or cozy, soft sweaters once the temps start to cool.

A chic vest has the ability to add polish to an outfit in an instant—and the fashion set can’t get enough of them. Wear alone with relaxed trousers while the temps are still pleasant, then layer under a blazer or overcoat once it starts to get cool.

Leather jackets are having a major moment this season. From heavy-duty distressed leather to oversize biker silhouettes, moto jackets, leather blazers, and trench coats—all styles and silhouettes are fair game.

Fresh and feminine, sheer fabrics dominated the F/W 22 runways (particularly in a pretty palette of pastels and neutral hues). Try pairing a turtleneck with a sheer skirt for a trend-forward fall look.

From fuchsia to soft pastels, pink—in every shade—is trending hard this fall (the Barbiecore trend is well and truly thriving). Luckily, it pairs beautifully with neutral beige, gray, brown, and blue hues—making it easy to style with pretty much anything in your wardrobe.
