Forget about separate, seasonal wardrobes, and make the most of what you've got. The secret? Stick to affordable pieces you can mix, match, pile on and peel off all year-round. We’ve got your inspiration: We built two complete looks—one for summer, the other for fall—around one standout piece, all for under $100. All it took? These four timeless essentials (Start your shopping list now!):
A Printed Sundress
As it turns out, summer’s essential sundress is a great starting point for scarves, jackets and boots. Your best bet? A high-low style in a high-impact print—like this easy-breezy number in of-the-moment camo.
An Army-Inspired Jacket
This fall, we're giving our jean jacket a break in favor of a new necessity: the army-inspired topper. It's just as comfortable and oh-so-versatile. (We wear it with sweaters, summer dresses and more.)
A wedge sandal in black, white or tan is a must from spring to the end of summer. Add a pair to your closet, and wear it day and night—with a pedi, some bronzer and your favorite sundresses.
In our book, moto boots are essential. They’re equal parts timeless and trendy, and add outfit-making edge to looks across the board: We wear them with skinnies to show them off in all their glory, and with minis and dresses—even through fall.
