Fashion basics on a budget

We're all pinching pennies these days, but thanks to designers whose collections are showing up in mainstay department stores, shopping for fashion on a budget is getting easier than it once was. Here are some essential pieces -- each for less than $100 -- that you can mix and match for the ultimate fall wardrobe.

Style #2: Embellished tee

Your fall wardrobe won't be complete without a super-soft, long-sleeved tee. And embellished styles with ruffles or playful necks are perfect for dressing up this fashion favorite. You can get a lot of leverage out of the perfect tee: Wear it under a jacket, sweater or cardigan for a dressy look, or pair it with jeans for your casual autumn outings.

Budget find: J. Crew swirling flowers tee, $39.50; scoopneck tee, $29.50
