A new season means new clothes, but you don’t have to build a fall wardrobe from scratch. Moms on a budget, listen up: Here’s how to take items that are already in your closet and turn them into fresh ensembles. Learn how to update a black dress, striped T-shirt and more to look spot on for fall.
YOU HAVE: A striped shirt.
Fall remix: Get another season out of your summery, nautical T-shirt by topping it with a luxe texture, such as a tweed jacket or fur-trimmed sweater. Add slim jeans, a sparkly bracelet and your favorite boots. The result is a richly layered look that looks fresh for fall.
