This is a true story: I've been on the hunt for the perfect puffer vest for weeks now, and last night, my lengthy search came to an end — at Old Navy. After drifting in and looking around for a bit, this Quilted Frost-Free Puffer Vest ($28) emerged in a beacon of light, just begging to be snapped up. The best thing about this piece (aside from the price) is the fleece lining, which is inside the pockets as well, ensuring toasty hands during those forgotten-glove days. While I personally picked up the solid black version, it's available in many hues, including this leopard-print iteration. Any of them would look great layered over long-sleeved tees, chunky knits, and even sweater dresses — so do yourself a favor and buy yourself one (or two!) of these before it's too late.
Looking to cozy up in a cute new look this Winter but still save some money along the way? Good thing you have us! We've put together one perfect look for your everyday life — and the best part is, each piece is on sale. We started with a pair of basic black skinnies and a soft, slouchy gray tee, then layered up the look with a hooded, army-inspired parka. Daytime-cool accessories like a leopard-print scarf and roomy leather tote add style and convenience, while a pair of edgy black biker boots gives the look an edgy vibe. Pop on a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, and you'll be ready to face each day, no matter how much snow falls.Shop clockwise from top left: Halogen Cat's Eye Sunglasses ($33, originally $68), Vince Camuto Natalie Tote ($100, originally $298), Mango Animal Print Foulard ($40, originally $60), J Brand Super Skinny Jeans ($157, originally $262), T by Alexander Wang Asymmetric Ribbed Tunic ($98, originally $245), Aldo Wroten Boots ($50-$55, originally $110), American Eagle Hooded Military Parka ($100, originally $130)
Because our desire to shop is always at odds with our will to save, we're helping to find some common ground in one awesome outfit that happens to also be all on sale. We're not talking about Summer dresses or bikinis on markdown, this totally seasonal outfit is a mix of our favorite trends and Fall staples that are perfect for wearing right now. We warmed up a basic white tee (one with a cool-girl twist) with a seasonal, knit miniskirt and a beanie to top it off. As for the rest, a denim jacket is a classically cool layer, while ankle boots provide a little (walkable) downtown edge. The results? One great look that's easy on the eyes — and the budget — and could go just about anywhere, from your casual office space to a night out with the girls.Shop clockwise from top left: Kain Alina Modal and Silk-Blend T-Shirt ($40, originally $88), Quiksilver Easter 81 Jacket ($52, originally $75), Aeropostale Hand-Knit Beret ($10, originally $25), Dolce Vita Jax Bootie ($109, originally $198), Rag & Bone Datia Skirt ($205, originally $290)
We all want the warmth and coziness that fur provides, but we're not always down with the moral dilemma (and let's not even get into the price tags).

We're getting you started with 14 of the cutest, coziest faux fur pieces that are sure to blend seamlessly into your Fall wardrobe, all while helping you stay warm — plus, each one comes in under 200 bucks.

Whether your style proves Ivy League-inspired all year round or you just happen to prefer classically charged Fall layering, we've got a preppy sweater lineup you won't be able to resist. Between these sweaters' enticing price point (nothing over $100 — beat that budget!) and a timeless aesthetic (cable-knit piping, slick elbow patches, turtleneck silhouettes, and the no-fail crewneck pullover), we're positive you'll get your prep-school fix and then some. Pair a navy nautical-striped iteration with dark-wash skinny jeans, brown riding boots, and a tailored trench coat if you're going for the all-American approach. Or style a more relaxed toggle-detailed rendition with slouchy boyfriend jeans and Tretorn sneakers for a laid-back rainy-day slant. We could keep going, but we'd rather you click on to see what's at your preppy-sweater disposal.
You may be a layering expert, but if you're not covering all the bases — head, ears, hands, and neck included — then you've still got some Fall styling to tend to. We're referring, of course, to the essential cold-weather trifecta: hats, gloves, and scarves. And if you don't have a cool mix of bundle-up pieces to keep you warm (or you're just looking to refresh the lineup), you've come to the right place for two reasons. Here you'll find a chic array of crochet knit beanies, ladylike driving gloves, text-friendly cable-knit mittens, fringed boho scarves, preppy plaid wraps, faux fur cossacks, and jewel-toned fedoras — 50 to be exact. And while we'd love to drape ourselves in cashmere until April, it's just not reasonable to empty our pockets every time the wind picks up. Thus, this roundup showcases our favorite 50 cold-weather accessories, all priced at $50 or less. Click on for the coziest 50-under-50 yet.
