I love the fall -- the colors of the changing leaves, the smell of freshly sharpened pencils, the yumminess that is pumpkin pie -- but my number one reason has to be the fashion. Don't get me wrong, I love wearing summer dresses and sandals, but there's something nice about trading in my skimpier things for a nice knitted sweater or a great pair of leather boots.
To see what other fashion items other ladies are excited about, I asked fashion bloggers to show me their favorite fall looks, which is great for inspiration, but even better … the looks are all under $100! Scroll down to see some of our favorites, or click here to see all of them.

Carla's Outfit Inspiration: "This fall/winter season I am very excited to try a mix of everything from brocades, animal prints, studs, chains, velvet, leather ... the list is endless. It works perfectly for me, as I love to mix and match all my garments. Even if they happen to be summer pieces, I always find a way to make them work for the season."

Kimberly's Outfit Inspiration: "This gorgeous bordeaux shade was all over the runways, and I love the idea of mixing it with other autumnal hues like these teal ankle-strap wedges. A classic leopard-print blouse is always in style and pairs especially well with a blend of rich colors and a textured cognac bag."

Courtney's Outfit Inspiration: "My style changes from day to day. To me, fall is all about the layers. I love the idea of taking a slip dress and throwing a sweater over it for a bohemian look. All I have to do is add a ton of jewelry and I am set. Fall is also about showing off cute socks! Who says they need to hide under your boots? Let them peek out."
Blog: South by Style
Lauren's Outfit Inspiration: "The trick is to mix in something unexpected like a menswear-inspired plaid shirt or a disheveled cuff in your jeans. It keeps everything from looking too precious. And I love taking an outfit from just cute to super cool by adding a brooch. If you like it, then you should put a brooch on it."
