I was blown away by your response to the summer capsule wardrobe I shared back in May. The number one request I got without a doubt was to make one for every season. If you haven’t heard about them already, a capsule wardrobe is essentially a curated set of clothing. The idea is that all the pieces can easily be mixed and matched, dressed up or down, and it focuses on basics rather than trendy pieces.
Over the years, I’ve shifted to prioritizing the quality and versatility of my clothes over quantity. Even though I still purchase more than the average person, mainly due to the nature of my job, I try to stick to the foundation of a capsule wardrobe when bringing new pieces into my closet. (Especially as a new mom, I see an even more added benefit of a capsule wardrobe to make getting dressed in the morning– while still feeling great– much easier.) It’s also a great way to draw outfit inspiration throughout the season and helps you visualize how you might want to style certain pieces in your closet or identify what you may be missing. Then, when making a new purchase, you can refer back to your capsule and check if it’s something you’ll be likely to wear often. If the idea of solely following a capsule wardrobe isn’t for you, think of it as a foundation of staples to start with that you can mix and match and style with new pieces too.
FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE
It’s almost vest season! As cute as vests are, they actually are practical and serve a purpose. This teddy sherpa vest would look so cute styled with my go-to white button-up, skinny jeans, and flats, or with this long-sleeved striped midi dress and white sneakers. I also LOVE this floral poplin shirtdress I bought last month! I can see myself styling it with my Madewell riding boots and a Dragon Diffusion tote once the weather gets cooler.
While I love a chunky cable knit for winter, cashmere cable knit sweaters are the best for fall. They look great layered over button-ups, thrown over shoulders with blouses, and even tossed over a dress at night. I especially love the addition of navy stitching on this camel mockneck sweater. I’d style it with demi-boot jeans, flats, and a matching navy Neely & Chloe kettle bag…. maybe even add a navy satin hair bow if you’re a fan of bows like me!
