Building Your Fall Capsule Wardrobe 2020

How to build a fall capsule wardrobe 2020 and the staple items you need to elevate your outfits. Capsule wardrobes do not have to mean boring, uniform-like style. 


The right capsule wardrobe saves you money, headaches while getting ready and streamlines your overall style. Over the last few years, capsule wardrobes have been gaining mainstream popularity mainly due to their environmental and economical benefits.

When purchasing timeless, essential pieces for a capsule wardrobe, it is easy justify investing in quality. Whereas investing in trendy pieces that may or may not be in style by the following year is not the best idea. 

All the items we suggest investing in for your fall capsule wardrobe will not go out of style by fall 2021 and can be easily transitioned into every season with little manipulation.  

So here is your fall capsule wardrobe checklist: 

A Fitted Black Long Sleeve 

A quality, natural long sleeve will never lead you wrong. Use this base layer any of your fall capsule wardrobe outfits to add warmth and dimension.   

Shop Long Sleeve Shirts. 

A Midi Skirt 

Midi skirts are timeless but happen to be the trendy skirt for fall 2020 (over mini and maxi skirts). As you can see in this photo, the right midi skirt can be dressed down with a pair of sneakers and white tee but also elevated with the right blazer and booties. We love this Muted Dot Midi Skirt for its subtle design and sleek fabric. You could also pair it with a turtleneck crop top for cooler days.

A Structured Cardigan

Adding a structured cardigan or sweater to your 2020 fall capsule wardrobe will help pull many outfits together. We love this Contrast Trim Cardigan because it dresses up distressed jeans on the weekend and pairs well with an align skirt at the office. The long lines help elongate your overall look and allows the cardigan to double as a "jacket" on warmer fall days. 

Shop Contrast Tim Cardigan.

A Midi Black Dress

A little, black dress is a staple in any capsule wardrobe and your fall 2020 capsule wardrobe is no exception. While we love dressing up this Square Neck Ribbed Dress with a pair of heels and a blazer, you can also layer underneath with a turtleneck and add some sneakers for a daytime look.

A Pair of Dress Joggers

Whether you are working from home or visiting a pumpkin patch this fall, having a pair of dress joggers in your wardrobe will keep your outfits both stylish and comfortable. Look for quality fabric that hangs nicely and isn't prone to piling because trust us, you'll want to live in these! We love these Knit Joggers ethically made from bamboo.

A Jean Jacket

Just as a leather jacket or longline cardigan can help dress up your staple pieces, a good jean jacket can make any outfit casual or weekend ready. 

This authentic Oversized Cropped Jean Jacket hits in all the right places and the perfect addition to any 2020 fall capsule wardrobe.

Once you have the essentials for your fall capsule wardrobe, adding just a couple trendy or statement items can add dozens of outfit options.
