Fall is right around the corner, and if you are anything like us, that means it's time to start thinking about your fall capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe for fall can be a great way to save money on clothes while also wearing stylish pieces that will look good now and all season long. This blog post will give you some tips for building an affordable but fashionable fall capsule wardrobe!
Building a capsule wardrobe can be tough, but it’s not impossible. Creating your fall capsule wardrobe will take some time and effort, but once you get started you should see results right away! The key is to focus on what you invest in for the long term. Finding pieces you will love now and later is a crucial part of a capsule wardrobe.
Dressing for Fall
When it comes to making the changing seasons more comfortable, flexibility and adaptability in your style is everything. Try to dress in layers as much as possible. Colder temperatures are not comfortable to be in when you're unprepared, and wearing lighter clothes is a great way to get sick from cold exposure. Layers allow you to control how warm or cool you are throughout the day, so try layering pieces like knit sweaters over turtlenecks with some comfortable pants will go a long way as a simple outfit idea.
Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essential Pieces
The fall capsule wardrobe essential pieces should consist of staples like linen pants, knit sweaters, layerable cardigans, turtlenecks, and more.
Wearing these lightweight pants are perfect for the transition into fall because they're not too warm or heavy like denim jeans would be. These also look great with any type of shoe from a sandal to a boot and everything in between. Our refined Paloma Pant brings comfort and elegance to the cooler months. With functional pockets, soft material, and refined details, they'll take you anywhere this fall and beyond.
Knitted sweaters are a fall staple. For women, wearing knit sweaters is also great because they can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and weather/temperature. Our Cottage Crewneck is the perfect choice with its soft material, oversized fit, and refined details which make it the perfect fall sweater. It goes well with a skirt and tights, dark wash jeans, or yoga pants. Style it with hats, shoes, scarves, and everything in between to truly complete the look.
Cardigans are an all-season must-have. They are perfect to pair with fall outfits because they can be layered or worn alone. Our Shelter Cotton Cardigan is the ideal piece to transition your summer dresses into fall ensembles. It looks great paired with pretty much anything. Skirts, jeans, dresses, coveralls, you name it. Throw on a cardigan and have the warmth you need without sacrificing style.
Turtlenecks are a fall wardrobe staple that can be worn as part of an outfit or as the base layer. Our Monty Turtleneck is perfect for layering, and you can pair it with everything from leggings to jeans. With buttery soft fabric and just the right amount of spandex, the classic turtleneck you love comes in new solid colors for even easier styling. Add them under a chore coat, sweater, or cardigan, and pair them alone with linen pants, jeans, and gold necklaces. Turtlenecks are a cool-weather staple and this season's underdog story.
Vintage Baseball Hat
A vintage baseball hat is a stylish way to take your fall look from the field (or court) to the street. With minimal style and seasonal colors, our Corduroy Baseball hat is perfect for pairing with everything in your closet- including jeans, turtlenecks, button-down shirts, and more.
While there may be some contention on whether or not a pair of utility coveralls constitute a wardrobe staple, we'll fight this fight as we do think at least one one-piece wonder needs to grace your closet each season. Our Guide Coveralls will take you from early fall to mid-spring easily with style and hardwearing comfort.
One of the best things about our Field Chore Coat is its versatility. Sure, it's not the mountaineering jacket you'll be wearing out on the trail, but this simple, refined coat makes any outfit feel effortless, warm, and still stylish. With a mid-length, hardy material, and distinctive details, the jacket pair well with hardwearing pieces, casual pieces, and even more elegant ones too. Adding this jacket to your outfit arsenal allows you to have a great, sturdy, yet lightweight jacket that can literally be styled 100 ways or more. It's the definition of transitional and without a doubt, makes our list of fall capsule pieces.
