Start With Wardrobe Essentials That Blend Into Other Seasons
The thing about fall is it is always changing. It is the season of change. One day may feel a lot like summer while another day may feel a lot like winter.
That is why you need to start your fall capsule wardrobe with items that can be used in other parts of the year too. It’s also a great time to do a seasonal closet organization and get rid of the things you never wore in the summer.
Your closet should definitely have a couple of good pairs of jeans in it. For me, the most essential pair of jeans you can own is a good dark wash boot cut. They work well with most shoes and can easily be dressed up or down.
After that, any minimalist fall capsule wardrobe starts with basic layers so you need a couple of white or grey tees. White is probably the most versatile but if you are nervous about keeping a white shirt looking nice (like I am) grey is definitely a good option too. The reason a simple tee like this v-neck Hanes t-shirt is so great is that it can layer really well with lots of different things. And fall is all about layering!
Now let’s dress it up with another great essential that you can use all year round. What is it? A nice button-up white shirt! This one is breezy and casual while still looking classy and elevated. You can wear it loose, half-tucked, tucked in, or even tied to match whatever look you are going for!
There are two more essentials I think everyone should have that really go well with a fall capsule wardrobe. What are they? Your Levi jeans jacket which will serve you for years and a cute pair of chucks. These converse will elongate your legs because they match your jeans!
Add Some Fun To Your Fall Wardrobe Essentials
In the fall, I feel pretty casual. All I want to do is go to the river walk or the mountains in Colorado and take a walk under the falling leaves. That’s why you need a pretty printed t-shirt with three-quarter length sleeves. I love this one with the sunflower print that reminds me of Van Gogh.
Because fall makes me feel casual and artsy pretty peasant blouses are also considered part of my fall wardrobe essentials list. They are lightweight and great to layer. A loose long sleeve peasant blouse can be very versatile and I can’t resist and this peplum peasant blouse for a more form-fitted look.
But tops aren’t the only things that can add fun to your fall capsule wardrobe! Try some cute straight-legged jeans with a little bit of personality that will pair adorably with some cute brown booties! I just love a good pair of booties in my fall capsule wardrobe.
Get Cozy With Casual Fall Wardrobe Essentials That Warm You Up
I love to feel cozy in the fall when the crispness comes into the air. I usually don’t pull out my fall capsule wardrobe until I feel that beautiful crip breeze. There is nothing like a nice walk through the pinon tree desert in my backyard or a lovely bonfire to make it feel like fall.
Make sure to include some cozy fall wardrobe essentials to keep you warm. Try a comfy open stitch hoodie sweater or a long cardigan! You will look adorable while warming up just enough. A nice pashmina scarf is also a flexible way to stay warm. Sometimes you need a coat, sometimes you only need a scarf, and sometimes you need both!
Dress Up Your Fall Wardrobe!
Fall is so beautiful! It makes you feel beautiful in your fall capsule wardrobe! If you need to dress up your look for fall what will you need? Are there any fall wardrobe essentials that are a little more dressed up?
The beautiful peasant blouses and the sassy brown booties I mentioned before will pair really well with this faux suede skirt!
If you want to look really classy there is nothing like a nice sweater. This pointelle puff-sleeved sweater is a beauty in burgundy! Pair it with that suede skirt, a pashmina scarf, or some nice jewelry, and your booties for a dressy fall look that can take you all sorts of places!
