What I am covering in this post:
What is the Goal of this Fall Capsule
Before we create any capsule wardrobe in mind, its important to set some goals. And yours might not be the same as mine. But its important to see how you can build your capsule wardrobe around those goals.
This capsule wardrobe is built around the following goals:
- Easily mix and match colors, so that I can create cohesive yet colorful outfits. I love colors always, so its really important for me to be able to keep on wearing them even when the weather gets gloomy.
- Maximize the wear out of my closet where I can use last season pieces along with he items in my capsule. This is something I want you to also think of. Its always exciting o buy new things, but the best way to get more wear is by being able to pair them with existing pieces in your closet.
- Scaling this capsule to include more colors as we get to cooler months. I really want to wear even more colors as the we get to winter, so I wanted to build a foundation so I can add more colors and shades to this capsule and keep on enjoying them.
- To come up with cohesive and colorful outfits. To look put together and stylish, its key that your outfit looks cohesive and I want this capsule wardrobe to achieve that.
What Colors am I Focusing In This Capsule?
I had a lot of colors that I wanted to include in his capsule to be honest. But, I didn’t want to just have one piece of each color and no way to pair them, so I decided to scale back and reduce the number of colors.
I also wanted to have more earthy tones for fall that looks really good in this and most of those colors go well together.
So, the colors I picked are Green, Burnt Orange or Pumpkin Spice, Wine, Burgundy. All these shades can be easily expanded as the weather changes and worn with other colors like Red, Yellow, Pink and so on.
What is In the Capsule?
Something to keep in mind is that you cannot just have all colors in your wardrobe. Its not practical, but at the same time coming up with outfits with cohesive outfits becomes really challenging.
So, I also have black and white pieces that I have incorporated in the capsule to help balance the colors and create easy to put together outfits with colors.
So, let’s get into the details.
I did not pick a lot of colored pieces for my tops, so I can have a balance between colors and neutral pieces. This way, I can easily pair them with colored bottoms to come up with colorful outfits without any effort.
And lets be honest, sometimes, we might not even feel like wearing colors, in that case, having some neutral colors will help. I also do not have any full sleeve sweaters, because fall is the season of layering and if you wear something thick already, you might get hot during the day which is not fun.
There two sweater tops but they are short sleeve, so they won’t make you too warm.
For my bottoms, I mostly picked black and pants instead of skirt, because this is something I find really comfortable to put on everyday when I am in a hurry. And as the weather gets cooler skirts always feel dressier.
For the color palette, I had mostly black and white bottoms with just two pairs of colored bottoms.
This is the way of wearing skirts but in the form of a dress. I picked short sleeve but midi length so I don’t feel cold and at t he same time I can easily layer jackets and coats with them.
Dresses are an easy way to create multiple outfits and also covert them into skirts. Checkout this post when I am sharing how you can wear different styles of dresses in fall.
Its always good to have multiple lengths of outerwear pieces in your capsule, so you can create different styles of looks based on the weather and your mood.
I have also added some colored pieces in my outerwear which can become the statement of the outfit. But at the same time I went with black and white layering outerwear so that I can pair them with colored base layers to create a cohesive look.
Footwear is where I did not add much of color except for a blush nude shade because this is where you want to stick to primary colors that will balance all of the colored looks that you will put together.
I also decided not to add any tall boots because he weather is not that cold yet to wear them and since I am wearing mostly pants and longer dresses, I don’t need them as well.
How to Build This Capsule?
The first step for you should always be to check what you already own and try it to see whether you like it or not. Sometimes even though we might already own a piece, it just might be time to upgrade it. Or the item is too worn out that you won’t feel excited to wear them.
In that case, checkout the items I am sharing to upgrade your existing pieces.
