We are now officially in Autumn! Hooray! Not only does that mean cooler days and being able to wear jeans without dying of heat exhaustion, it also means transeasonal dressing is now very important! When you’re not quite out of your Summer wardrobe but not quite into your Winter one either… tricky!
Luckily I have put together an awesome collection of pieces (9 to be exact) that you can mix and match to create a MINIMUM of 9 outfits with… enjoy the inspiration (or buy the whole capsule… I won’t judge…) and let me know what you think!
Let’s start with some basics… or staples!… the must have pieces that will be the building blocks of your capsule wardrobe. A great denim jacket, distressed skinny jeans and comfy tee. Adding boots and a fedora kicks this outfit up with EXTREME cool factor.
A simple (yet incredibly flattering) swing dress is a fantastic wardrobe staple no matter the season. Cute black and white stripes won’t date and are easily dressed up or down. I’ve added a pop of colour with the yellow tassel earrings and wedge heels but you could easily pair with metallic, white or tan shoes as well.
The swing dress from above is completely transformed by wearing as a tunic with the black skinny jeans and cool pair of boots from Outfit #1. If the weather cools down enough you can even pop a leather jacket over for ultimate cool girl vibes.
The Black skinny jeans combined with a black camisole now create the base outfit for this stand out Kimono! The colours are just divine, and the angles are so different than anything else you’ve ever seen, this is a beautiful statement piece that works for day or night.
Proving that the kimono works perfectly day or night, I’ve swapped the black jeans and cami for blue jeans and a white cami for a relaxed look that is perfect for every and any day!
Changing the kimono for the denim jacket and adding white kicks and hat, and you’ve created a very easy to wear and comfortable basic outfit that will see you through many seasons. “Basic” outfits made out of quality, well fitting pieces are anything but #basic!
Keeping the denim jacket and swapping the jeans for the cute swing dress, but this time adding killer booties, and you have a very sexy (in an understated way) outfit that is perfect for drinks! Tan booties with a peep toe elongate the legs which is perfect in this little number!
Every capsule wardrobe needs a through on and feel cute dress, which is exactly what this dress is. Floaty but with shape, adjustable drawstring to create a waist, and cute ruffle details… what more could you want? Just add cute hat and slides for an easy peasy school run or brunch outfit!
Last but not least we take the gorgeous sundress from above and add an Autumn, edgy vibe with the denim jacket and boots. Don’t be scared to add a toughness to your pretty with some denim and boots, you’d be surprised how often it works!
