Hello there 🙂
In autumn it was always about reducing myself and starting over. For some reason, I tend to treat the transition from summer to fall the way some people treat the new year. So far I've gutted half of my wardrobe and started planning my fall outfits. But why stop there? I keep the momentum going by creating a streamlined capsule wardrobe so I can put together chic and simple outfits and be sure I get the most out of each piece.
When organizing yourself to curate a capsule wardrobe wasn't enough of a reason, I've put together the ultimate one that features this season's most exciting (and wearable) fall trends. Inside you will find staples like a short cardigan and more trendy ones like a pleated mini skirt, which can be easily combined with the clothes that are already in your wardrobe. While the capsule only focuses on trends, I've put together 12 outfit ideas with associated basics like t-shirts and jeans so you can visualize how each look comes together. Just scroll down to see it in action.
Sweater vest + button-down shirt + high boots
The coolest way to wear tall boots this season is with bare legs and a mini dress. Try an oversized oxford shirt and a sweater vest layered over it.
Leather blazer + t-shirt + pleated skirt + slippers
Pleated mini skirts were the hottest micro trend of the summer and this look is a perfect example of how you can wear one with cool outerwear for the fall too.
Sweater vest + wide leg pants + slippers
Sweater vests just look intimidating, but wearing one as a top is actually that easy.
Short cut cardigan + pleated skirt + high boots
This sweater, skirt, and boots combo is one of the fall uniforms I wear a lot that has just been updated with more trendy seasonal staples.
Leather blazer + cropped cardigan + wide leg pants + slippers
It's always a good idea to wear a large blazer. Even better if it's smooth leather.
Leather Blazer + T-Shirt + Skinny Jeans + Tall Boots
Since skinny jeans and turtlenecks are two timeless staples that I know many of you already own, trending items like a leather blazer and high boots refresh them.
Short cut cardigan + wide leg pants + slippers
Get to know the simple (and comfortable) combination that I wear several times a week and that consists of a cardigan as a top and relaxed pants.
Sweater vest + skinny jeans + high boots
Another cool way to style your skinnies is with a sweater vest (worn solo or layered) and jeans in high boots.
Short cut cardigan + pleated skirt + slippers
Just add cute ankle socks and this lightweight fall fit is complete.
Sweater vest + button-down shirt + wide leg pants + slippers
Of course, vests are meant to be layered, so wear one with a button-down shirt and pants for a polished vibe.
Button-down shirt + pleated skirt + high boots
A mini skirt and high boots look more classic with a button-down shirt.
Turtleneck + wide leg pants + slippers
Once winter really sets in, a turtleneck is an easy replacement for your regular t-shirts and tops.
