I mentioned in my last post that I’ve started investing in pieces with a longer life span vs. lower price tag. I’ve found that staple pieces allow me to create a more stylish outfit and help to save money over time. Since I’ve been really excited about creating my own quality wardrobe, I wanted to share some of my ideas for a capsule wardrobe for fall. Here are a few notable staples that can be easily mixed and matched to create several different outfits.
What you Need to Create a Capsule Wardrobe for Fall
A Cozy Cardigan
I’ve noticed a pattern of buying at least one nice cardigan every fall season. This always ends up being my go-to laying piece. I especially need one that’s work appropriate since its always freezing in my office. Of course, it’s also good to have a cozy sweater for the weekends. I’ve been lusting for this open-front poncho that’s proven to be very versatile.
A Classic Flannel Shirt
I’ve been wearing my flannel shirt nonstop, either open over a graphic tee, tied at the waist or layered under a light sweater. I’ve also been playing with ways to wear it to work. It actually looks very professional under a sweater shell, which is also a cute look with distressed denim for the weekends. By far, my favorite way to wear a flannel shirt is over my favorite summer maxi dresses. This is a great way to transition my favorite summer style into fall.
A Simple Swing Dress
A simple dress is necessary for the days where my energy for getting dressed, just isn’t there. I bought a very similar style to this one last season and I’ve been able to wear it all year round. Adding a pair of tights and blazer makes it a great look for work. Throwing on a denim vest over my swing dress has become one of my go-to weekend outfits. With such a simple, yet stylish dress, the possibilities really are endless.
