Build a Capsule Wardrobe you’ll love | Part 4 Fall Essentials

Fall is officially here, and I’m excited for it! This year, I’m building a capsule wardrobe for every season. I want a wardrobe full of essential basics, so I can easily create outfits each season. Fall fashion is one of my favorite seasonal styles, but one I don’t find easy to wear here in Belgium. The weather gets cold very soon into the season. That’s one of the reasons I really want to create a capsule wardrobe specific for fall, so I can enjoy it while I can. Do you want to update your wardrobe too? I’ve got you! Read on to discover my list of classic and timeless essentials you need in your fall capsule wardrobe.

💡 Tip: the first step in building a capsule wardrobe you’ll love is taking a good look at what you already own. Haven’t done that yet? Then jump on over to my blog post on how to do a closet detox. But don’t forget to come back to discover this season’s capsule wardrobe essentials.

💡 Do you already have a capsule wardrobe for another season? Then, first see if there are items you can reuse in your fall capsule wardrobe. A pair of white sneakers or a basic white t-shirt are capsule wardrobe essentials no matter what the season is.

Coats & Blazers

I’m a coat girlie. I love them and always find new ones I just need in my life. A classic for fall is a trench coat. I just love the look of a classic trench coat in a beautiful beige color. I haven’t found the perfect one yet, but I’m eyeing the And Other Stories one and need to go and try it on soon so I can add it to my fall capsule wardrobe.

Knitwear & Tops

Fall is all about layering. It’s can be chilly in the mornings, but midday it’s still warm. So layers are essential to being prepared for all the weather changes. And that’s why I love good basic tops that can be worn on their own and can also be layered underneath knitwear and blazers.

Trousers & Skirts

There are so many options trouser- and skirtwise for fall. But we’re building a capsule wardrobe, so I kept it to the essentials. I wear pants more often than skirts, so I included three different trouser options and two skirt options. This way, you can easily mix and match according to the weather and occasion.

I love a good pair of shoes. Just like picking the right accessories, choosing a pair of shoes can make or break your outfit. I immediately had a lot of different ideas when I started brainstorming shoes to add to my fall capsule wardrobe. I love shoes, so I feel like you can never have too many. Narrowing it down to the essentials—the classic pairs you can wear year after year—wasn’t easy. But I did it! Below you’ll find 5 pairs that, to me, are fall essentials.

And last, but definitely not least, are the accessories! I love accessories. They just make your outfit that much better. And for fall, there are some good options to choose from.  I already own a beige Le Pliage bag. It’s the perfect everyday bag, so of course I need one in a fall color like the navy one below.
