Keeping up with an ever-evolving set of fashion trends four seasons each year can quickly exhaust any shopper’s budget, not to mention closet space. Well, fret not, because we have the intel that this fall’s wardrobe layout need not require more than eleven well-vetted items. Yep, you can get your fall style entirely on point with items that you already have in your wardrobe. The key to unlocking endless fall outfits without spending a single dollar? A capsule wardrobe.
The magic of a capsule wardrobe is that it allows you to really squeeze the sartorial juices out of your clothes. Each item in your capsule should be hand-picked to maximize versatility and suit your personal style, budget, and lifestyle. Think pieces you can wear over and over again in a myriad ways. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to capsules since they’re meant to be what you love to wear, but to give you an framework of what one could look like, we’ve created our very own version that you can use as a jumping-off point.

The list of benefits that come with creating a capsule wardrobe go on and on but in general, streamlining your closet to just a few key essentials each season frees up space both physically and mentally and emotionally, too. That means more time, money, and storage space that you can allocate to things other than clothes. Yep, getting dressed and packing for any trips just became 100% easier.
Abiding by a capsule wardrobe is also a great way to hone in on your personal style. By narrowing your closet, you can be sure that every outfit you put on is one you feel your best in, since every item in your arsenal is one that best represents your style.
