Imagine opening your door to find a gorgeous collection of capsule wardrobe items. Each one can be mixed and matched with ease to create a seemingly endless combination of fall outfits. Getting ready in the mornings just got a whole lot easier.
As the nights begin to grow darker and the air blows cooler, there’s no better time to organise a beautiful capsule wardrobe to mark the transition from summer to winter
If you’re slowly starting to pack away your summer dresses, sun hats and high heels, we can only assume you are now ready to pull on something a bit more snug. This month we’re here to give you a few ideas on staple pieces you need to be wearing this fall.
Each season, we recommend investing in a few statement pieces to update your current look. By doing so; not only will you be decluttering your space and saving money, but the idea is that limiting your choice will make you think more about what you really want and need in your wardrobe. This can also help with fewer regrettable impulse purchases in future.
By investing more in high-quality pieces that you’ll love and wear for years to come, let’s start with some wardrobe basics that will transform the way you get dressed this fall.
A Staple White Shirt
Whether it’s silky white or thick cotton, one of the biggest fall fashion trends that dominates womenswear and menswear yearly is a staple white shirt. Lending a smart and simple look, women’s shirts is one of the most versatile items to own. Formerly popularised by icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, a white statement piece lends an impeccable chic look and can easily be altered from a day to night look in minutes. Pairing well with smart trousers, stylish shorts or a beautiful skirt; in addition to coming in a variety of lengths and styles, this timeless piece can take you from working at your desk to drinking cocktails in an instant.
A Statement Skirt
A piece that all of the fashion girls are wearing this fall, we like to believe every lady will invest in at least one of these in her wardrobe. Not usually an item that makes a capsule suggestion list, this year calls for a shake up of usual fashion trends. An essential item that can easily be paired with a casual top for a simplistic, glamorous look, there’s no question that a skirt you can wear for ‘day or play’ is a valuable asset to any style.
Pairing well with a plain t-shirt or crisp white shirt (we told you it would come in handy!) we would suggest sticking to neutral pastel shades, bold coloured prints, or stripes for the most iconic fall look.
The Must-Have Bag Accessory
The circle bag trend was pulled straight from the spring 2018 catwalk and has been flaunted by the likes of Meghan Markle and other popular influencers, fashionistas and bloggers since. Having a serious moment – the circular bag won’t be disappearing any time soon. This hot-pick accessory is a proving popular and pairs well with any neutral inspired outfit. From the mustard, burgundy and slate-grey wicker variations, the pastel pink and mustard shades are perfect to match with any work or party outfit.
A Chic Gold Jacket
As autumn reigns down on the style calendar and the temperature begins to plummet, don’t risk ruining your fall outfit by wearing the wrong outerwear. If comfort is the ultimate luxury, what could be better than sporting a gorgeous lightweight slip on prep-school-inspired piece. The key is not to overdo, but keep layers minimal for a sophisticated and tasteful look.
With a host of luxury macs, lightweight blazers and large coats to choose from this season, keep your fall wardrobe in check by wearing a light and shimmery jacket that is sure to compliment any outfit. Perfect for all types of weather, our specific nude and gold chic jacket looks fantastic when paired with jeans, or a gold or rust coloured outfit.
