Now that we’re living in a totally new climate I’ve had to re-think my capsule wardrobe a bit. So far this autumn we’ve had both beautiful warm days as well as snow and temps dipping into the negatives. Since it can be quite unpredictable I’ve really focused on good layers with this capsule so hopefully I can layer up or down as the temperatures require.
The items I chose for my fall capsule wardrobe:
- Olive/tan tank – Sustain
- Blue tank – secondhand
- Velvet bodysuit – Underprotection (read a brand review)
- Navy tee – Lanius
- Grey linen tee – secondhand
- Black tee – Funktion Schnitt
- Long shirt – ArmedAngels
- Plaid draped shirt – secondhand
- Striped oversized shirt – secondhand
- Red knit top – old
- Grey knit top – People Tree
- Blue cropped sweater – DIY/handknit
- Grey/brown sweater – Izzy Lane
- Rust cardigan – Eileen Fisher
- Beige cardigan – old
- Dark jeans – Mud Jeans
- Black pants – People Tree
- Cropped wool pants – secondhand
- Striped knit skirt – secondhand from thredUP
- Linen skirt – NotPerfectLinen (read more about my love of linen)
- Ikat jumpsuit – Matter Prints (watch more about ikat and the jumpsuit)
- Silk romper – secondhand
- Draped wool dress – secondhand
- Grey tee dress – Kowtow
- Brown jacket – DIY/handmade
- Denim jacket – secondhand
- Grey jacket – NäZ
- Paisley scarf – secondhand
- Beige purse – Angela & Roi
- Backpack – Matt & Nat (please read why I no longer support Matt & Nat)
- Black hat – secondhand
- Beige beret – DIY/handknit
My capsule wardrobe is adapted from the Project 333 challenge. Over the course of creating many capsule wardrobes I’ve been fine-tuning them to figure out what works best for me. Last year I decided to no longer include shoes as part of my capsule wardrobe, I feel I have a good core “shoe capsule” and the one thing I occasionally seemed to miss was a certain pair of shoes. This has worked well this last year and I will continue to have a separate shoes from my wardrobe. My “shoe capsule” includes a pair of boots, heeled boots (which I need to replace and am currently searching for), sneakers, sandals, flats, formal heels and athletic/running shoes.
I also no longer try to hit a specific number, just build a wardrobe I think would work well. It usually ends up being around 30-35 pieces, often on the higher end in fall/winter and lower in spring/summer.
Hope you have a beautiful autumn ?
Do you have a particular Angela Roi bag you prefer?
The style I have unfortunately isn’t available anymore.
It’s always great to see your capsule wardrobe posts!
Could you do a post or video showing your “shoe capsule” sometime? I’d be really curious to see how you’ve chosen shoes that are versatile to go with every capsule wardrobe.
I’m really surprised not to see a raincoat in there or winter boots? Do you have one outside of the capsule or do you use an umbrella? I’ve been struggling with weather issues surrounding capsule wardrobe since I’m also in Canada and dealing with the unpredictable rain/snow/sleet.
I use an umbrella if it’s rainy and wool is somewhat water-resistant which works okay for snow. My shoes are not part of my capsule, but I have a pair of everyday ankle boots and I also hung onto a pair of heavier winter boots which I’ll pull out when it gets really cold.
