Summer has seen its fair share of light jackets, whisper thin sweaters and cool denim jackets, but now that fall is about to arrive on the actual calendar and not the retail calendar, it’s time to start thinking about just how you’re going to stay warm during those cool summer nights without breaking a sweat. One of the season’s most beloved pieces, the sweatshirt, is getting a makeover for fall. Instead of spring’s sporty cotton versions that look borrowed from your boyfriend, try an all-out feminine lace sweatshirt. The combination of the sporty shape and ultra-flirty lace will turn heads whether you choose to pair it with your go-to tanks and layering t-shirts or you decide to dress them up with a silky cami and pencil skirt. It’s a bold and fun way to update your look, and with our picks that ring in at under $100, you’ll be flying into fall with plenty of cash to spare for some real wardrobe splurges.
