If you’ve OD’d on minimalism, consider bucking that style in favor of one that’s more fun and just as on-trend this fall season: maximalism. There were plenty of embellished knits and over-the-top statement coats on the street in London and Paris. And such freewheeling fashion needn’t be expensive.
If you’re looking to stand out this season, consider a printed coat. Or what about a pair of colored tights that cost less than lunch? Liven up your otherwise drab sweater collection with one decorated with pearls, crystal fringe, or feathers. Or pair last season’s favorite statement turtlenecks with this season’s python-print pants— a look straight from the streets of Paris that incorporates something old and something new.
Here are five fall trends for $500 or less for the maximalists at heart.
Fall’s most stylish sweaters are the most flashy and exciting yet. Complete with pearl and fur trimming, ostrich plumes, or diamante-fringe sleeves, these sweaters are meant to be worn straight through the holidays.

Warm and Fuzzy
This season’s statement bags are cozier than ever. Warm up to the trend with a shearling fanny pack or faux-fur tote.
Pants Go Python
Fall is no stranger when it comes to animal print, but instead of a safe take on the trend like leopard-print boots, consider taking a stand for bold fashion in snake-print pants. Extra points if you pair them with a clashing top.

Tights in Brights
Instead of covering up in a knee-high boot with a dress or skirt this season, consider something lighter on the legs—opaque tights in eye-catching brights. Street-style stars paired their neon stockings with knee-length knit dresses and mary janes for an extra pop of color—an unexpected fall look.
