Picture this: The kids are tucked in bed in their Halloween pajamas after a long day at the pumpkin patch, you have a glass of red in hand, you’re playing your favorite fall playlist, and you’re baking some pumpkin muffins before settling into the couch under a cozy blanket for a viewing of Hocus Pocus. Is there anything better than that?
There are very few things in this world that make me as excited as fall does—more specifically, fall fashion. Although the season always seems fleeting (especially in the Midwest where truly anything can happen when it comes to weather), I always cherish those few precious weeks of perfectly crisp autumn air. So if you’re like me, and you’re more than ready for all the sweaters, booties, jeans, and overall coziness that you can dream of, this one is for you.
When I was curating this particular fall capsule wardrobe, I really wanted to focus on classic pieces but also bring in some aspects of the preppy, quiet luxury, and coastal grandmother aesthetics that have been trending this year (and I see trending well into the fall and winter). You’ll find lots of rich neutral tones, gorgeous knits, varying textures, and classic silhouettes.

How to style the fall capsule wardrobe
I imagine that in styling this capsule, there will be endless options for layering—throw one of the sweaters over your shoulders, or try pairing the graphic sweatshirt with the sweater dress. I also wanted this capsule to feel effortlessly chic, no matter what combination you choose to wear. Pair a casual tee with trousers and sneakers, or go for classic with jeans and a collared cardigan. Mix things up by swapping your go-to jeans for a denim midi skirt, and upgrade your booties to an on-trend but timeless western-inspired pair. These outfits work for whatever you have planned this fall, from school activities to fun weekend adventures:
For a day in the office
For running errands
For brunch with the girls
For chaperoning a field trip
For playing at the park with the kids
For a trip to the pumpkin patch
For an event at school
For school drop-off or pick-up
For fun weekend activities
For date night
