As you know, fall is in full swing. We’ve swapped our sandals for boots, skirts for jeans, tanks for long sleeves, and tanning lotion for bronzer (the struggle is real). If you have gone through your winter wardrobe and found yourself throwing out most of last seasons clothes because you’re ‘so over them’ and you’re ready to buy all new items according to what’s the new fall trend, then please keep reading. This story’s for you.
The below collection is what editors like to call ‘a capsule wardrobe’. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, let us brief you on what that means: A capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothes and shoes (usually around 20 items all up) that are considered to be your ‘be all and end all’ items in your wardrobe. These versatile pieces can be mixed and matched to create numerous amounts of outfits, so you’re not going to feel like an ‘outfit repeater’ even though you really only have a 20 piece wardrobe (revolutionary, we know). So, read on to see what staple items we’ve hand picked and think should be a part of your capsule wardrobe this fall. And if you’re feeling like you’ve got your closet covered with most of the below, keep reading for our very own EIC’s fall must-haves.
