These pieces have the sort of fun shapes and details that will make your staples feel 100 percent cooler — and you can get them all for less than $250!

1. A jacket with utilitarian chic: UK Style by French Connection, $72;
sears.com.

2. An elegant blouse in a smile-inducing print: Missoni for Target, $39.99;
target.com.

3. Slim, go-anywhere cargos: Basic Editions, $21.99;

4. Sexy-bright booties: Payless, $49.99;

No offense to ANY of you fashionistas out there who may disagree, but I personally do NOT like the look of the #5 oxford shoes in the 2nd group of pieces, but who am I to stop the masses from wearing unflattering "newsies" looking shoes.  They seem to be popular since these pieces were picked by regular women, so I didn't want to delete them or ignore them in the posts. In Part 2 and 3 of the "Makeover - Fall Outfits Under $250" posting series, I am going to add outfits that Redbook Magazine put together, mixing and matching from the pieces above. I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to Pull Together other looks using these or similar pieces.
