We’ve all heard of the dreaded “Freshman 15,” right? And even though you’re always excited to come back next summer and see who’s been defeated by it’s menacing powers, you’re also just as afriad that, well… you might be one of them.

Our style editor has been doing some serious hunting! And she’s found the best fall finds for under $50! But what exactly did she look for?
I went for my favorite brands and stores! Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, boohoo, LookBook Store – just to name a few, then started searching! I love loose, comfortable pieces in colors that match the coziness of fall! Neutrals, maroons, blues and greens are great for fall time!
