Fall Fashion Guide: Save or Splurge

Fall Fashion Style and Social



Coats: Ted Baker // Topshop
Skirt: Carven // Topshop
Boots: Miu Miu // Zara
Sunglasses: Prada // Le Specs 
Bags: Stella McCartney // Boohoo


One of the most exciting things about fall is the transition from warm weathers to crisp cold mornings. This involves every aspect of clothing being shifted into the cozy layers and stylish boots, and with the colder months approaching there's always space for shopping for new statement pieces! I only like to splurge on items when I think they're really worth it, and when you'll know you'll get a lot of good use out of it. If their a good make and will last you a couple of years, I think it's better to invest and be satisfied rather than save but end up having to buy something similar within a few months.

Jackets: One thing I love about the colder months is cosying up in big jackets and keeping warm. I love both these jackets and the 'wrap-around' style but the winner for me here is the save! It's a piece by Topshop that I think looks so perfect and cosy. Pairing this coat with a pair of leggings and knee high boots and you're good to go!

Skirt: I think spending a lot of money on designer clothes can be worth it, but for a skirt I'd always go for the cheaper alternative because it's not something I'm going to get a terrible amount of use out off. Also, I think spending a lot of money for one single fashion item (not including bags / shoes!) when it's not out of the ordinary is sometimes just not worth it. The save is a winner in my eyes in this one, and how beautiful is the Topshop skirt anyway!?

Boots: When it comes to shoes I don't mind splurging a little because they're long lasting and can be so versatile. However these shoes are so similar in style - the pointed toe, the open back & the shape in general! I absolutely love this style of boot too - it's extremely classic and I feel like they'll be really popular this fall. You can't beat a pair of Zara shoes and the price is amazing for the value! For the price I'm slightly leaning towards save on this one but I think I would be willing to invest in the Miu Miu's too.

Sunglasses: I'm always on the fence when it comes to sunglasses because I wear them almost daily so I don't mind spending a bit more on them. I actually love both these pairs - the Prada and the Le Specs. I recently discovered Les Specs (available exclusively here) and they do amazing styles of sunglasses. I think it's going to have to be a tie one this one! What do you think?

Clutch: Bags are my weakness so if you know me you'll know what my pick for this choice would be. I love the style of both these clutches - very minimalistic and classic. I would prefer to go for the higher option here and pick the Stella McCartney clutch but this one from Boohoo is amazingly similar and about 1/10th of the price!






Whats your fall favourites? Would you choose save or splurge?
