How to Build a Fall Capsule Wardrobe for Work and Play

When transitioning for a new season, we often pack away our past season clothes and shop for new to fill our wardrobe with fresh trendy pieces. Whether you’re going for a closet revamp, wardrobe change, or seasonal shopping, keep on reading for our guidelines on building a fall capsule wardrobe for work and play.

Embrace earthy palette or color palette that suits you.

Just because you love color doesn’t mean you want to wear all the colors. Your wardrobe still needs to be built around a specific palette, to be cohesive and mixable. Since fall season is known for earthy palette, think of filling your closet with mustard, red-orange, camel, beige, brown, tan, chocolate brown, olive green and such to channel the fall moods. However, if you feel fall hues are muted and boring, go ahead and pick bold, bright colors that suit your personality and complexion and make sure your colors are wearable. This way, you can easily build outfits for work and play.

Resort to double-duty pieces that you can wear to the office and at home, evenings and weekends.

Casual pieces that you only wear during your free time maybe sneakers, shorts, t-shirts, and such, but you can still opt for a versatile shirt dress in a neutral shade that works for pretty much any occasion. Like fashion blogger Laura Dittrich, you may opt for a button-down shirt that you can wear with ripped jeans and camel coat in your casual weekends and with straight leg pants and crisp blazer at your workplace. Just add pieces for work that are a little more professional looking and that you can combine with your double-duty pieces.

Opt for a pair of shoes of boots that can be stylish and functional for the season.

Closed shoes and boots are stylish and functional for the fall season, so opt for a style that works with your personality and lifestyle. Like fashion blogger Nina Suess, you may opt for a pair of Chelsea boots that look a bit masculine yet comfortable if you’re planning to dress down your feminine dresses this fall while looking fashion-forward on your street style. Or like fashion blogger Noor de Groot, opt for a pair of black boots that look chic with your casual dress teamed with tee, as well as jeans, skirts, and other fall outfits.

Complete your looks with fall accessories.
