Why Consider a Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

Believe me, I’ve been there—standing in my closet with a mountain of clothes but somehow feeling like I’ve got nothing to wear. The solution to this dilemma is a capsule wardrobe. Or so I hear, I plan on creating one right along with you this year!

If you’re not familiar, let me break it down: a capsule wardrobe is basically your fashion bestie in a box. It’s a curated collection of clothes that work well together, offering limitless outfit options without the excess clutter.

The perks? Think about saving those precious minutes every morning because you’ve got a streamlined set of items that just work. Plus, it’s kinder on your wallet—no more splurging on those ‘in-the-moment’ trends that you’ll only wear once. And hey, it’s a nod to sustainability too.

But why fall, you ask? Ah, the season of pumpkin patches and cozy firesides—fall brings with it a shift not just in the weather but in our lives as we transition from the carefree vibes of summer. The temperatures are as fluctuating as our day-to-day to-do lists, so having a capsule wardrobe ensures that you’re not just stylish but also prepared and comfy.

When it comes to colors, choose the ones that make you feel good. Although neutrals are easy to mix and match, your capsule wardrobe should be tailored to your preferences. If magenta or teal gives you that burst of joy and confidence, go ahead and incorporate it!

So, are you ready to make your mornings a little less chaotic and your style a lot more ‘you’? Let’s get into it!

Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Pants and Jeans

  • Tailored Pants: These are your power players. Perfect for both formal and casual settings, they pair seamlessly with almost every top in your wardrobe. I love to wear dress shoes and sneakers with them!
  • Black Wash Jeans: Slimming and universally flattering, these jeans are a must-have. They elevate casual wear and can be dressed up with the right shoes and accessories.
  • Dark Blue Jeans: Just a notch below their black counterparts, dark blue jeans offer a softer yet equally chic look.
  • Quality Leggings or Joggers: For those laid-back days or perhaps a spontaneous yoga session, a good pair of leggings or joggers will keep you comfy and cool.

Sweaters and Tops

  • Long Sleeve Bodysuit: The beauty of a bodysuit? No more tucking in! It’s sleek, chic and makes layering a breeze.
  • Box Cut White Tee (100% cotton): A classic. Its versatility is unmatched. Wear it alone, layer it, dress it up, dress it down. The options are endless.
  • Oversized Sweater: Perfect for those crisp fall mornings. Cozy, stylish, and oh-so-comfortable.
  • Quality Hoodie or Crewneck: For a more relaxed look, these options are your best bet. Perfect for weekend getaways or coffee runs.


  • Black Coat: Timeless. It’s the coat that effortlessly goes with everything.
  • Camel Coat: A softer, neutral option that screams fall. Plus, it’s an instant outfit elevator.
  • Coatigan (Long Open Cardigan): When it’s not too cold, yet a tad breezy, the long open cardigan-type coat comes to the rescue. Casual and cozy. The one from Mango comes in every neutral color you could ever dream of.
  • Tailored Blazer: Need a touch of sophistication? The blazer is your answer.
  • Denim Jacket or Bomber Jacket: If a tailored blazer is too “dressy” for you, try a denim jacket or a bomber jacket!


  • Knee-High Boots: A fall favorite! Choose either riding boots or slightly heeled knee-high boots!
  • Waterproof Chelsea Boots: Chelsea boots go with either jeans or leggings, making them a fall capsule wardrobe staple!
  • Loafers: Comfort meets class. Perfect for workdays or casual outings.
  • Neutral Sneakers: For those active days or when you’re aiming for a relaxed yet polished look. A neutral and minimal sneaker allows you to wear them with tailored pants for a trendy look!
