We've been scouring some of our favorite stores in search of the best in affordable fall fashion. This week we're focusing on Target and if you're looking for on-trend looks for less, look no further. We've put together a great list of budget-friendly must-haves perfect for giving your wardrobe a boost – just in time for fall. Bonus: Nothing is over $50. Happy shopping!

Fall fashion

1. Coat ($50), 2. Sweater dress ($33), 3. Boots ($50),
4. Handbag ($40), 5. Sweater ($25), 6. Cuff ($17)

1Plaid trench coat

You'll be one step ahead of the weather in this fitted trench coat in gray and black plaid ($50). Since plaid is such a hot pattern this fall, we were instantly drawn to this on-trend outer layer. Fall can be fickle – one day it's sunny the next it's windy and rainy, but being prepared and looking cute is a snap in this cute coat.

2Sweater dress

Sweater dresses are one of the most easy-wearing things you can own. Not only are they ultra-comfy and perfect for the impending drop in temperature, they offer a stylish alternative to jeans and a T-shirt when you don't feel particularly inspired to put an outfit together. We love this soft gray cowl neck style ($33), an ideal look for casual evenings or even the office when paired with heels, tights and cinched with a belt.

3Multi-purpose boots

Stomp it out in style in these fashion-forward fall boots ($50) that fall somewhere between riding boots and motorcycle boots with a rounded toe, slight heel and buckle detail. The sturdy boots in deep chocolate brown are perfect for pairing with skinny jeans in a dark or distressed denim, but would look equally at home over leggings and a cozy sweater dress.

4Fall color bag

We were immediately drawn to this medium size handbag in a gorgeous shade of yellow ($40). It reminded us of watching the leaves change color and more importantly, it's a great way to add fall-inspired color to your wardrobe. Take this bag anywhere – from shopping sprees and brunch dates to meetings and day trips out of town.

5Tab sleeve sweater

Sweaters are a fall style mainstay for most people so having a few different styles is important. We love this scoop neck style with tabbed sleeves and a ribbed hem ($25). The simple yet sophisticated piece offers a unique alternative to the plain pullover and we love how easy it is to dress this sweater up (with a pencil skirt and heels) or down (jeans, please).

6Leather cuff

Add some sparkle to your autumn accessory collection with this cute leather cuff ($17) featuring a smattering of rhinestones and studs. This fun piece is an easy way to add some edge to an outfit, plus the neutral, almost metallic hue makes it a great option for wearing with anything from basic black to bright color block looks.
