Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Shopping List

leopard coat, sea of shoes, fall shopping, fall outfit, chelsea boots, navy miniskirt, skirt and chelsea boots

After much deliberation, I think I’ve finally decided on the items that will form my fall capsule wardrobe. I’ve been editing this list for weeks and really thinking about how I’ll be able to wear and remix the items that I chose. I narrowed it down to 40 pieces (which includes clothing, shoes, and outerwear, but doesn’t include accessories, underwear, and loungewear). Once I have everything in my possession, I’d like to take pictures of each item to share here. In the meantime, I thought I’d let you guys know what’s on my shopping list.

– a trench coat. This trench from Uniqlo might just be the one.

– chelsea boots. I wanted these boots from Madewell so badly last season, but they are a bit pricy. I also like this version from Topshop, but it’s now out of stock (boo).

– black flats. I’m looking for a pair with an almond toe and a little extra detail. I really liked the design of this pair that I bought in spring, but they were just so uncomfortable that I had to let them go.

– a white tee. I need to replace mine and I like the essential v-neck tee from Gap.

– a graphic tee or sweatshirt. I already bought the maison des a.r.t.s sweatshirt from Madewell and I just love it.

– a burgundy sweater.

– a black cardigan.

– a gray cardigan (I’m eyeing this style at Uniqlo).

– a green army jacket. This has been on my list for several seasons and maybe this year I’ll find the one I’m looking for. Maybe it’s this one from Old Navy?

– a black skirt. I’m not sure yet if I want it to be pleated or full or a-line, but I like this Topshop skirt, this wrap skirt from Aritzia, and this zip skirt from Mango.

– a gray skirt.

– a faux-leather skirt.

– a gray dress. I like this classic style from Uniqlo.

– a black dress. This midi length LBD from Joe Fresh would be different for me, but I can picture a lot of different ways to style it.

– a grey-and-white striped tee.

– black slip-on sneakers. I’m completely a sneaker convert now. I love the texture on this version from Aeropostale and I’ve already added them to my closet.

If you have any suggestions or recommendations for these items, I’d love to hear them in the comments below. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
