Net-a-Porter.com's seasonal sale stole our attention today, and we're pretty sure you're about to lose some time to the ecommerce giant too. Spotted: Isabel Marant's Fall 2013 runway wedge booties, the lace Diane von Furstenberg dress we've been eyeing for months now, and a neon Jimmy Choo bag that would get just as much love as the simple black purse we've been toting.

We firmly believe there's no such thing as too many sweaters, cozy scarves, or wear-anywhere knit dresses come Fall and Winter — unfortunately, our wallets don't always agree with us.
That said, we're also pretty resourceful. To solve our moral dilemma, we've handpicked 50 awesome knit finds — cardigans, pullovers, mittens, dresses, you name it — and none of them will cost you more than $50. Click through to shop now, and thank us later.
When you're giving your wardrobe a Fall makeover, don't forget your handbags. Lighter fabrics don't hold up well during Winter — and nothing helps change up your look faster than a new purse on your arm. Right now, we're gravitating toward structured trapeze shapes, chic clutches by day, and a few furry, textural finds that feel particularly seasonal. With an eye on the runways and the accessories we've seen from the street style crowd, we've handpicked the best bags to hit the shelves for Fall 2013 and shopped them out for every budget.

When the tryptophan kicks in, it's all we can do not to slip into something a little more comfortable.

Forgo your worn high school sweats for a pair of drawstring pants that are actually chic. From a silky print, perfect for warming up with your favorite knit tee (and a cup of hot cocoa!) to the sleeker leather variety just waiting to be dressed up with a cashmere sweater and pumps, we've rounded up some very, well, adjustable solutions to staying comfy this holiday right here.
Sure, we could roll up to any Thanksgiving table in our sweatpants, but that wouldn't be nearly as much fun as putting together an amazing outfit. We like to think of Thanksgiving as the kickoff to the holidays, so it's prime time to start stepping up your game with seasonal threads, no matter where you're headed for dinner. In case you're struggling to pull together just the right look for dinner at home or your first Turkey Day at your boyfriend's, we've done the work for you. Get all the outfit ideas you need right here.

Traveling for Thanksgiving presents packing challenges, especially if you aren't going to your home but to the home of a significant other, friend, or roommate — Is it OK to wear my pajamas to breakfast? Do I have to wear a dress for Thanksgiving dinner? Fortunately, we're here to help relieve that holiday stress and make packing for your Turkey Day a little easier. Your guide to not overstuffing it begins right now. Read on for our tips for efficient packing, then click through for the 14 must-have items in your suitcase — plus a super handy no-fail packing guide.
- Don't sacrifice space for a single amazing piece you can only wear once. Look to tops and dresses you can wear more than once.
- If something wrinkles easily, leave it at home. Look to easy fabrics and finishes that will roll and fold easily in your suitcase.
- Know the power of accessories. A great pair of earrings or a pretty necklace can take a sweater from day to night in a flash while also taking up little space in your bag.

Brave are the women who battle the crowds on Black Friday. While many of us have given up on setting foot in an actual store during the holiday shopping season in favor of cyber deals, there are some who embrace the rush of scoring a deal in person. Ladies, this one’s for you.
We’ve broken down Black Friday survival tips into 10 essential pieces of advice. The first is, naturally, to wear comfortable shoes. (Our moms taught us well!) And not just any comfortable shoes — chic sneakers from Nike. Beyond that, make sure to layer properly, carry a classic tote (avoid that dreaded “elbow crook cramp”), and of course, reward yourself with a little something at the end of the day. We say make it count — and make it cashmere. Shop our 10 Black Friday tips below. (Yes, more shopping before all the shopping.)
