Capsule Wardrobe Essentials For Fall / Autumn 23

How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe For Fall 23

Capsule wardrobe essentials for fall 23 can be a great way to simplify your wardrobe while still maintaining a stylish and functional wardrobe. Here are some steps to follow to create a capsule wardrobe for fall:

1. Assess your current wardrobe: Start by taking an inventory of your current wardrobe. Identify what you wear most often and what you don’t wear. This will help you understand what gaps need to be filled in your wardrobe.

2. Determine your color scheme: Choose a color scheme that works for you. Fall colors like burgundy, olive, mustard, and navy are popular choices, but you can choose any colors that you like.

3. Choose your essentials: Select a few essential pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways. These might include a cozy sweater, a versatile pair of jeans, a classic trench coat, ankle boots, a scarf, and a crossbody bag.

4. Add some statement pieces: While your essential pieces should be versatile and timeless, you can add some statement pieces to your wardrobe to give it some personality. These might include a bold print dress, a leather jacket, or a pair of statement earrings.

5. Mix and match: The key to creating a capsule wardrobe is to choose pieces that can be mixed and matched. This will allow you to create a variety of outfits with just a few key pieces.

6. Invest in quality pieces: Since you’ll be wearing these pieces frequently, it’s important to invest in high-quality pieces that will last for years to come. Look for well-made pieces that are made from high-quality materials like cashmere, wool, and leather.

7. Store your off-season clothes: Once you’ve created your capsule wardrobe for fall 23, store your off-season clothes in a separate place. This will help you stay organized and make it easier to get dressed in the morning.

The Key Essentials For Your Fall 23 Capsule

Fall is a great time to create a capsule wardrobe that embodies both style and comfort. A well-curated capsule wardrobe should include key essentials that can be mixed and matched to create a variety of stylish outfits, while also being functional and comfortable.

The Knitwear Essentials For Fall 23

One of the most important pieces of a fall capsule wardrobe is a cozy sweater. Opt for a high-quality sweater made from materials like cashmere or wool that will keep you warm and comfortable on chilly days.

Jeans For A Fall 23 Capsule Wardrobe

A versatile, straight leg, pair of jeans is another must-have item that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Look for a pair that fits well and is made from durable denim.


The Classic Trench For A Fall 23 Capsule

A classic trench coat is also a staple for fall. Not only is it a timeless piece that adds sophistication to any outfit, but it also provides protection from the elements. Look for a trench coat made from water-resistant material and in a neutral color like beige or navy that can be worn with a variety of outfits.

Boots For A Fall Capsule For 2023

Ankle boots are another essential item that can be worn with jeans, skirts, dresses, and more. Opt for a comfortable pair with a low heel that can be worn for long periods without discomfort. A scarf is also a great accessory to add to your fall wardrobe. It can be used to add a pop of color to an outfit or simply to keep you warm on chilly days.


The Bag For A Fall Capsule for 23

Finally, a crossbody bag is a practical and stylish accessory that can be worn with any outfit. Look for a bag that is large enough to hold your essentials but not so big that it becomes cumbersome. You might also want to consider adding some layering pieces to your capsule wardrobe, such as a cardigan or denim jacket, which can be worn over a sweater or t-shirt for extra warmth and versatility.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
