This week I have started putting together my own Autumn Capsule Wardrobe. I will be bringing back pieces from last year, but have already added a few new items to freshen up the existing pieces.
I'm adding some of the traditional Autumn colours like Tan, Light Olive and Orange to pieces I already own in Mustard and Black. And as brown is so on trend this season, I will also be expanding on the few pieces I have of Chocolate Brown (one of my favourite neutrals that at last is readily available this season)
The Chocolate Brown satin skirt from last year will carry forward, as this style of skirt is still so popular for both day and evening. Slouch boots are also still very much in, so these I bought last year will go with the new skirts I have included as an alternative to shoes.
I didn't get much wear out of the olive embroidered shoes I bought in Boden's sale last year or my gorgeous metallic Coach bag. Bringing in more greens will mean more outings for these much loved accessories.
Pieces from my wardrobe:
The Mustard Masai jacket, Velvet boots and my favourite Eileen Fisher scarf all work well with the colours I am incorporating. I could swap in the orange or green cardigan, bag and shoes in the outfit below.
Long green and orange cardigans - I couldn't find anywhere online. Both by Masai, I bought them in Fenwick. Rust sweater // Black print top // Yellow print skirt // Black top (bought in the US but this one is similar) // Black tiered skirt // Rib crop trousers (sale bargain at EF in the US - still full price here) // Orange shoes // Necklace // Orange Bag (top handle bags are the must have style this season) //
Some of the outfits:
I will be adding in warmer knits and boots from last year as well as more new pieces as the weather cools down.
If you would like a done for you capsule wardrobe for the new season, my seasonal capsule wardrobe is now available. There are over 60 outfits to inspire you, incorporating the new seasonal colours and trends. It takes all of the hassle out of shopping and putting outfits together.
I have also created a beautiful work wear capsule wardrobe, again with over 60 outfits including business smart and business casual options. It makes getting dressed for work a breeze.
