I'm 54 and Work in Fashion—This Is the Fall Capsule Wardrobe I Swear By

As we begin prepping our fall wardrobes, we thought a bit of autumn shopping inspiration from some of our favorite follows could be of interest. Enter Renia Jaz—the 54-year-old influencer behind @venswifestyle. We routinely turn to this fashion creative for top-notch outfit ideas because of her directional approach to style. And while age has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, her sartorial point of view over 50 is also intriguing given that she’s spent time over the years developing a well-rounded wardrobe through style trial and error. To that point, her capsule wardrobe, in particular, is consistently worth noting.

Jaz actually shared with us the 15 fall staples that she thinks she’ll turn to repeatedly this season due to their versatile nature and that she’ll be able to mix and match to create a range of solid outfits. With that in mind, keep scrolling to uncover her ultimate capsule wardrobe with shopping inspo as well. If you go a bit further, you’ll uncover seven outfit ideas (although more could definitely be created) using said items.

Now, check out a few outfit combinations:

Trench + White Shirt + Turtleneck + Jeans + Boots

For a simple yet directional vibe, layer a turtleneck underneath a button-down with a trench coat on top.

Knit Tank + Cardigan + Leather Skirt + Knee-High Boots

A matching sweater set is effortlessly chic with faux-leather separates.

Ribbed Dress + Blazer + Sandals

Take a sleeveless dress into fall by tossing a blazer on top.

Polo Sweater + Trousers + Boots + Bag

Keep it easy and elevated with a trendy knit and trousers. Tucking the pants into the boots is particularly forward.

Knit Tank + Blazer + Skirt + Sandals

If it's slightly warmer out, try a knit tank under a blazer for something different.

Turtleneck + Ribbed Dress + Knee-High Boots + Bag

While a ribbed dress can work on its own or with a blazer, wearing a turtleneck underneath with knee-high boots is a great fall look as well.

Trench + White Shirt + Cardigan + Trousers + Flat Boots

Really play up those layers with these staples for a sleek autumn 'fit.
