Sweaters and shawls are always a fall favorite in the DFW area. With a typically moderate fall season (at least with our fingers crossed!), layering scarves and wraps is an easy way to keep plenty warm without ever wearing a coat. Here are my favorite finds for layering your wardrobe this season, all under $50.

Everyone needs that one special piece in their wardrobe that they can throw on at any time to make a statement or to pull an outfit together. Purchase your statement scarf in a pattern that reflects your personal style. If you love drama, opt for leopard print or a black and white pattern. If you are a romantic, find a floral in colors that compliment your go-to fall pieces.

This rich fall scarf is perfect for the girly-girl with a little bohemian flair. It is available, along with many other budget friendly scarves, at Anthropologie for only $38. Each scarf has varied color and pattern, as they are all individually made.

Feminine fashions are all the rage this fall. What better way to look like a lady than by adding a square scarf to your outfit. Once considered a dated look, the classic shape is back this season. Knotted in front like a necklace or loosely drape to the side, this accessory is elegant when paired with a white blouse, slacks or a pencil skirt. For a more casual weekend look, pair it with boot-cut jeans, wedges and your favorite tee. This Halogen ‘Plissé Status’ Square scarf is available at Nordstrom for $46.

Knit capes are the latest and greatest in sweaters for fall 2011. They always look effortless and their casual, hip shape will make you look like and feel like a fashionista, even if you are just running to the grocery store. Remember to pair your cape with slim pants so that your outfit has balance and proportion, rather than pairing with wide pants that will make you look full all over. Pair this great winter-white option from Gap ($45) with skinny, corduroy pants and wedge, knee-high boots. As the weather cools, layer a turtleneck underneath the cape for added warmth and a pop of color.
