Fall Essentials Under $50

Fashion and beauty blogger Mash Elle shares 10 fall essentials for every wardrobe Every year it amazes me how quick the summer heat evaporates and is instead replaced with a cool chill turning the leaves from deep greens – to yellows, oranges and fiery reds. Living in Ontario, Canada I am blessed with the opportunity to truly experience all four seasons {and subsequently earn the right to own four seasons of clothing}. With that being said, my closet endures a quarterly makeover as sun dresses are replaced with warm oversized wool sweaters and bikinis with infinity sweaters and mittens. Along with the summer heat, the variety of colours in my wardrobe dwindle significantly. I tend to stick with monochrome shades of fall clothing, and instead infuse muted accents of colour in my beauty products: in the form of a bold lip, statement nail colour and so forth.

1 H&M Biker Jacket

 Faux leather jackets are my absolute #1 most adored fall fashion trend. Instant confidence booster. No matter the outfit, a leather jacket can turn up the hot factor. For a cheap {faux} leather jacket, I highly suggest browsing through H&M and Forever 21.

2 Topshop ‘Cobweb’ Infinity Scarf

Infinity scarves comprise the #2 spot of my favourite fall trends. For me, the bigger the better. With that being said, my ultra sensitive skin {aka diva skin} demands my scarves MUST be comfortable. Ie. wool scarves are out of the question. Topshop has some cute and affordable infinity scarves this season!

3 H&M Ankle Boots 

Transitioning from teensy sandals and wedges to full blown knee high boots is {emotionally} challenging. My alternative is ankle booties. They provide the protection needed against the cool autumn breeze. I am l-o-v-i-n-g these H&M ankle boots with a slight heel.

4 Dior ‘Sparling Nail Powders’ Set

During the fall, I like to spice up my outfits with bolder beauty products. Dior is offering a limited edition Sparkling Nail Powders Set. Staying true to the monochrome theme, this nail lacquer is muted yet dazzling with infused glitter dust. I will be sure to pick up this trio ASAP.

5 Zara Basic Shopper Bag

 As mentioned in my Top Five Back-To-School Picks, a laptop carrying case is essential to tote around my laptop, textbooks and beauty products around campus. This Zara Basic Shopper is classic, chic and affordable.

6 Marc by Marc Jacobs Metallic Stardust Logo iPhone Case

Who else is ecstatic for the iPhone 5s {available in three days}?! Since hearing about the new iPhone launch, I have been searching high and low for a new iPhone case. Whilst searching, I found this gorgeous metallic Marc Jacobs cell phone case. Oh word: love.

7 Bobbie Halfer Wayfarer Sunglasses 

 Fabulous shades are pivotal year round. These bold sunnies complete any fall outfit.

8 MAC ‘Tropical Taboo Color Mineralize’ Rich Lipstick

My go-to pop of colour for fall comes in the form of a bold lip. Ever since my Mac lipstick obsession began {thanks to Ashley Brooke}, I have been building my collection. At the top of my to-buy list is MAC Tropical Taboo Color Mineralize – a deep purple hue. This purple shade is perfect for a wow factor and contrasts well against blonde or brunette hair.

9 H&M Pattern Knit Sweater

Finally, nothing says Autumn like a warm over-sized sweater. One of my favourite fall past-times is sipping on a pumpkin spice latte and relaxing by the fire in an oversized sweater. Not only are they comfortable, but look fabulous with an infinity scarf tight leggings and booties.

What are your favourite fall fashion and beauty trends?

    Oh my, I adore that jacket! I’m so picky with leather jackets and always on the look out for new ones. For this year a black one is on my wish list as my last one fell to pieces last year. I mean it, it actually fell apart.
    Perhaps I should have a look at what our local H&M has to offer…

    I love that thick knit sweater from H&M! It looks like a dream to just snuggle in. 😛

    I do as well! Unfortunately the closest H&M in within hours of driving distance so it’s a bit of a tease really to browse online!

    Haha! 9 used to be mine as well. Glad it could bring us together on the web!

    Thank you Eva!

    I am picky with leather jackets as well. They have to be comfortable, stylish and affordable! Not an easy task. I love XXI & H&M’s leather jackets though.. I have a slight leather jacket obsession so I have a little collection in my closet. Black leather jackets never go out of style!

  13. September 20, 2013 / 3:55 am

    You’re so right! It does!

  14. September 20, 2013 / 3:56 am

    Oh. My. Gosh. I am going to destroy TopShop with my wallet. You’ll have to keep me under control..

  15. September 20, 2013 / 3:56 am

    Fall is my favourite season for fashion for sure! Thanks for the read 🙂
