FALL FASHION: NYFW STYLE THE BWAB WAY

FALL FASHION: NYFW STYLE THE BWAB WAY

It's that time of year again. Fall. Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Fashion Week. It can't get any better than that. Not only is the food better (pumpkin everything, am I right ladies?), but layering beings to become a must. Though layering has been a crowd favorite for fall for a couple of years now, there is a new way to amp up your style New York Fashion Week worthy but with prices the Brunette with a Budget way.

Though this fashion week was all about Spring 2015, I'm throwing it back to NYFW Fall 2014 and making it wearable for this upcoming season. As I was keeping up to date with all things fashion week via Twitter and Instagram last year, I stumbled upon the designers, and their focus on layering but maintaining minimalistic style. 

ENTER: BCBGMAXAZRIA FALL 2014

The Staple Piece: 

Runway Chloe Dress: $448.00

The BWAB Staple Piece:

Nasty Gal Cheap Monday Dress - $100

Both dresses are not only extremely flowy and versatile, but they go with practically everything. The way that the BCBG dress was worn was with a chunky fur scarf paired with chic knee high boots. This outfit is the perfect fall combination because it accentuates your legs with the boots, but keeps the overall look comfortable with the drapey dress.

The Add-Ons:

Ted Baker Faux Fur Collar - $140

H&M Knee-high boots - $60

The Final BWAB Look:

ENTER: KATE SPADE FALL 2014

The Staple Piece:

Lee Bow A-Line Skirt - $398

Though this skirt is one-of-a-kind, it is also extremely versatile. The cream color is so soft and easy that it can go with an of your favorite tops or shoes. It's perfect for fall or winter, and the wool is the perfect texture for this skirt. This skirt is totally worth the splurge.

The Add-Ons:

J.Crew Merino Turtle Neck - $85

Charlotte Russe Gold Plated Flats - $25

Forever21 Crossbody Purse - $17

The BWAB Final Look:

So even though Fall fashion week has passed us, and we're obsessing over Spring 2015 fashions, there's still so many ways to wear the old fashions and incorporate them into our new fall wardrobe. 

Stay tuned for Spring 2015 fashion, BWAB style.

XOXO, Amanda
