✨Your Weekly Horoscope & Style to Match: Week of October 22, 2018 ✨

By Aurora Tower

Bond, Girl!

Fall vibes move from fun and flirty to sultry and sizzling this week, as the sun slides into mysterious Scorpio on Tuesday. What this means? Do something a little radical! Whatever your hangups have been, let them go and open yourself up to your passions and connecting with people you love. Wednesday’s full moon is cathartic and emboldening. The union of the Sun and Venus in retrograde on Friday promises a very sexy weekend. An ex or crush is likely to make an unexpected appearance. But luckily, with the support of pragmatic Saturn, you remember that plain old fashioned common sense is still your BFF.

How to Transform Your Fall Style Without Blowing Your Budget

Is it just us, or did fall come extra early this year? Maybe it’s climate change, but it sure feels like the blustery weather hit before we were prepared in 2018. Not that we’re complaining. We love autumn and fall fashion, in particular, is something we look forward to on an annual basis.

The only problem? We hadn’t really budgeted to double down on a ton of cold-weather outfits quite yet — and we were kind of stressing about how to bridge that style gap between summer and winter.

We were stressing, until we got a hold of a list Francesca Castagnoli, Chief of Content for Hinted, put together titled 10 Trends that Transform Your Fall Style, Under $100.

Here’s the secret to transforming your fall style without blowing your budget: You just need to pick some new favorites and run with them.

Francesca found 10 fall weekend essentials that we’re dying over, and they are all super budget-friendly. She’s provided us with the perfect items to upgrade, while still working with what we already own.

The pieces run the gamut from a cozy statement scarf to wide-leg cords that are perfect for work, and toe the line between investment staples and on-trend looks for the 2018 season. They are those special kind of pieces that are both soon-to-be-classics-that-will-last-you and high-impact trends for 2018.

Inside Out Pullover, $78; at Free People.

This Free People Inside Out Pullover really caught our eye, and not only because of it’s bright color. What’s really blowing our minds is that it retails for only $78. How often do you come across a quality sweater (by Free People, nonetheless) for under $100? Like, never.

“A knit this eye-catching does a lot of the styling for you,” says Francesca. “All you need is jeans or black pants, chic sneakers and a carefree attitude.” 

Another piece worth mentioning? These Faux Fur Lined Boots. There’s not many pieces of footwear in life that can easily transition from afternoon in the woods to dinner date in the city, but these boots, my friends, can do just that.

You can check out the rest of Francesca’s list in all of it’s fall glory right here.

Got the Cold Weather Blues? These Jewel Tone Outfits Will Give You a Lift

Fall is definitely here, which is obviously cause for excitement. The seasonal change has us living for all things autumn: Rich jewel tones, sweater weather, cute new scarves and hats, the fact that our makeup isn’t constantly melting off our faces and… pumpkin spice everything (duh).

But what we don’t talk about as much when it gets a little more mystical outside and temperatures start to drop is seasonal affective disorder. It ain’t a myth! It’s a scientific fact that the gloomy weather that starts in fall can bum us out. But it’s also been scientifically proven that there are certain colors that affect mood—which is why we are advocating for wearing the aforementioned jewel tones even more than usual.

If you’re needing some jewel-toned inspo (and a little mood boost), we have just the list for you. 12 Ways to Wear Jewel Tones to Boost Your Mood is giving us life right now. Whether you’re seeking to feel more empowered or looking to add a little love to your life, there’s a perfect outfit for you to wear to help you level it up.

But if you are looking to drape your entire body in good juju, this Bow Long Jumpsuit by Mango will have you looking put together in a snap (we love how one-and-done jumpsuits are when we’re rushing to get ready for work in the morning). And did we mention emerald symbolizes rebirth, growth, and reflection—so it’s perfect to add to your wardrobe when you want to start fresh in a new season?

Another option: The Halogen Tie Waist Dress from Nordstrom is just the ticket when you want to be pulled together for work, but are also dying to show off those hot new boots you bought for fall.
