Fall, for me, has always been about paring down and starting fresh. For whatever reason, I tend to treat the transition from summer to fall the way some people treat the New Year and so far I've already gutted half my closet and begun planning my fall outfits. But why stop there? I'm keeping up the momentum by creating a streamlined capsule wardrobe so I can put together chic and easy outfits and be certain that I'm making the most out of every piece.
If getting organized wasn't reason enough to curate a capsule wardrobe, I put together the ultimate one featuring all the most exciting (and wearable) fall trends on this season's lineup. In it, you'll find staples like a cropped cardigan and trendier ones like a pleated mini skirt that just so happen to mix and match well with the wardrobe basics already in your closet. While the capsule focuses on trends alone, I did craft 12 outfit ideas with accompanying basics like tees and jeans to match so you can visualize how each look comes together. Simply scroll down to see it in action.
Sweater Vest + Button-Down Shirt + Tall Boots
The coolest way to wear tall boots this season is with bare legs and a mini dress. Try it with an oversized oxford shirt and a sweater vest layered on top.
Leather Blazer + T-Shirt + Pleated Skirt + Loafers
Pleated mini skirts were the hottest micro-trend of the summer and this look is a perfect example of how you can keep wearing one into fall, too, with some cool outerwear.
Cropped Cardigan + Pleated Skirt + Tall Boots
This combo of a sweater, skirt, and boots is one of the fall uniforms I wear a lot, only updated with trendier seasonal staples.
Leather Blazer + T-Shirt + Skinny Jeans + Tall Boots
Since skinny jeans and turtlenecks are two timeless staples I know many of you already own, here's how trending elements like a leather blazer and tall boots freshen them up.
Cropped Cardigan + Wide-Leg Pants + Loafers
Meet the easy (and comfortable) combo I wear several times per week consisting of a cardigan worn as a top and relaxed trousers.
Button-Down Shirt + Pleated Skirt + Tall Boots
A mini skirt and tall boots are made to look more classic with the addition of a button-down shirt.
Turtleneck + Wide-Leg Pants + Loafers
Once winter really sets in, a turtleneck is an easy swap for your regular tees and tops.
