5 Fall Pieces That Will Cost You Less Than $10 Per Wear

At this point in the season, we've fully sunk our teeth into fall. September was all about eyeing and predicting which trends would really take hold, and now October is the time to place our bets and put our money where our mouth is. We're getting serious about which trends are really worth our time and which ones simply aren't. Since there's really no way to know for sure if a new purchase will pull its weight and prove to be worth it, we're identifying five fall items that pose little to no risk.

How exactly do we know this? We did a cost-per-wear calculation to prove just how much value lies in each of the items on our fall shopping list. Ultimately, we came to the conclusion that, given how many outfit ideas we have saved for each item, it will cost us less than $10 every time we wear the piece (given that we copy the each of the outfit ideas, of course). If you're doing some fall shopping on a budget, each of these five buys—a sweater, skirt, bag, boots, and jeans—really makes your dollar go the distance. Because we all know that feeling of disappointment when we see a dress hanging in our closet that never actually saw the light of day.

Don't believe us when we say that each item costs less than $10 per wear? Keep reading to see the outfit ideas that prove it and then shop the items guilt-free.
