KIRKLANS, Wash. - Swap out swimsuits for form-fitting pants, slouchy turtlenecks, and bold blazers for fall. Fresh off of her trip to New York Fashion Week, we enlisted the help of fashion expert and blogger Whitney Powell for tips and tricks on how to make this transition easily and keep it budget-friendly.

  • Edit your wardrobe: Follow the one-year rule. If you haven't worn it in a year and it still has the tag on it, or if you can't think of at least three ways to style it, it's time to let it go.
  • Organize what you have: Separate your pieces into pants, skirts, blouses, jackets, etc. This way you can piece outfits together very clearly. Take it a step further and color or shade coordinate into black/brown, white/tan, blue/green, etc.
  • Shop in the Men's section: Shop for basics in the men's section. They always have more options, and those options tend to be more budget efficient.
