It’s midsummer, which means that it is time to start planning your fall wardrobe for back to school or for that chilly nip in the air. Fashion runways have been crowded with designer labels eager to debut the next wave of trends for fall 2013. But before you start shelling out cash for designer duds, consider that it is possible to find similar pieces for a much less. We found five must-have trends for this autumn at bargain prices by going to Kohls.
1. Classic Boxy Coats
Over and over again we are seeing masculine inspired coats, especially in heavy materials and classic plaid prints. You could expect to pay the price of a small car for a designer coat similar in style to this Free Country Plaid Hooded Soft Shell Jacket that is only $52.00 at Kohl’s.
2. Colorful Hats
Fashionistas are pairing super cute beanies and knit caps with their fall wardrobe all this season. The splash of color brightens up an otherwise grey and cloudy autumn day. This 4 buttons by San Diego Hat Co. Rainbow Knit Hat was originally $28.00 but if you shop at Kohl’s it is less.
3. Peplum Dresses
The peplum is sticking around for one more season be it in dresses, skirts, or tops. This flounced style is ideal for enhancing womanly curves, even if you are stick thin. We found this azalea colored ELLE™ Peplum Sheath Dress for just $25.60 at Kohl’s.
4. Leopard Prints
Animal prints are hot for fall of 2013. This breezy Jennifer Lopez Leopard Dolman Tee was $12.00 on sale at Kohl’s.The loose fitting top is perfect for layering with other clothes and accessories. Try pairing it with boots, jeans, a knit cap, and a knee length coat.
5. Knee Length A-lines
Knee length skirts have long been a staple for those cool months that come later in the year. This season we are seeing a ton of high slits in pencil skirts, as well as plenty of emerald green. For $29.99 at Kohl’s this Apt. 9® Solid Tulip-Hem Skirt could be all yours.
