The perfect (and perfectly chic) fall outfit

One of the lovely things about fall (when it actually gets cool enough to really be fall) is layering - you really get to play with clothes and how they mix together. And unless you've packed on another 20 pounds just by getting dressed, it's a trend that's hard to mess up.

Below is the perfect layered outfit for - and you might want to sit down for this - under $150!! Shoes included!

(1) Poly-blend dress for $40.00, (2) Slate gray leggings for $26.00, and (3) leg warmers for $14.00, all from American Apparel. (4) Super soft Basket-weave scarf for $20.00 from World Market. (5) Love bangle (have at least 3 on at a time) for $5.50 from Forever21. And (6) Silver ankle-strap flats for $19.50 from Old Navy.

And that's a grand total of $136.00.

The best thing about these pieces is that they can all be used with other pieces; the dress can be worn with metallic pumps for a night out, or over jeans and with a slouchy sweater cardigan for coffee. And so on. And so on.
