Attention Kmart shoppers! Cute clothes in aisle 5! It's true. The big-box retailer is launching a fall fashion collection that's totally on trend and completely affordable (of course). With a few key looks and must-have basics, the company aims to take the guesswork out of updating your wardrobe for the new season. The pieces are runway inspired (but not Lady Gaga goofy), and play off of two major themes -- military and rocker.
Some of my fave items include the tailored Cropped Peplum Military Coat with funnel collar and brass buttons by the store's Attention label ($89.99) and the Sgt. Pepper-inspired Route 66 Crop Military Jacket (pictured) with sequined epaluets -- a real steal at $29.99! They're the perfect polished finishes to everyday work wear or casual weekend outfits. And, for those chilly days, stay warm in Attention's surprisingly wearable Faux Fur Vest (pictured, $59.99) that would make Rachel Zoe proud. Fur is a big trend this fall, and this piece would look great paired with a tee or turtleneck.
Or go for a tough girl look with this Faux Leather Bomber Jacket from Route 66 (pictured, $39.99). Pair with the brand's pink Sequin Tank (pictured, $14.99) for a sweet edge.
And apparently jeggings are here to stay (for better or worse), with Kmart jumping on the bandwagon! The dark denim/legging hybrid by Route 66 ($26.99) lets you be comfy without looking frumpy.
But if you don’t want to commit to the second-skin pants (I'm still on the fence), then pull on a pair of the Distressed Slouchy Skinny Jeans (pictured, $29.99). The well-worn dungarees are just as comfortable, but much more forgiving. Or try on the Route 66 Skinny Cargo Pant ($24.99) -- another huge trend that the chain store has interpreted for their customers this season.
All other items in the collection are priced under $100 and will be available in stores and at Kmart.com in September.
