Happy Wednesday gorgeous ladies! I’m so excited to share this 16 fall capsule wardrobe with you all! I’ve been working on it for about a month now and I’ve spent a ton of time coming up with an essential list of fall capsule wardrobe basics guaranteed to make your wardrobe more functional and make getting dressed for you so much easier every single day! Every piece can be mixed and matched and worn together with the exception of not mixing the few animal print pieces together. I recommend doing a closet audit to see what you have and decide which of these chic pieces will fit well into your fall wardrobe. For the expensive items, I have included a STEAL version so that no matter what your budget you’ll be able to find something to complete your fall wardrobe! Happy shopping!

SHOP THE 16 PIECE FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE BASICS:
1.) MADEWELL LEATHER JACKET:
This is the jacket I’m wearing in this blog post and for a REAL leather jacket, the price point is amazing price! The leather is buttery soft and I love the fit! A camel leather jacket is such a timeless and versatile jacket sure to make any wardrobe more functional! Dress it up as I did in this post and pair it with the black midi dress and chic leopard heels both part of this fabulous capsule wardrobe, or dress down by pairing it with a simple tee and sneakers. This amazing jacket also comes in black, but for the purposes of this capsule wardrobe, I would recommend the camel version. It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
2.) BLACK BLAZER:
Every woman needs an amazing black blazer in her wardrobe. Why? Well, the black blazer is the number one most functional jacket in my opinion! You can wear it to the office with heels and a midi dress, on a date night with jeans and a cami, or to church with a pair of black jeans and a pretty blouse. The one I’m recommending is the Veronica Beard Scuba black blazer. The material is high-quality and the fit is impeccable. This timeless blazer will never go out of style which means it’s worth it when you consider the cost per wear. I’ve had mine for over 4 years now and I bet I’ve worn it over 50 times. I love that Veronica Beard blazers come with interchangeable dickeys that you can change out making this blazer 10 times more versatile than any other black blazer on the market. If this one is out of your budget, no worries, I found this one that is very similar and a fraction of the price.
3.) LEOPARD JACKET:
A leopard jacket is a fun way to add a little print into this capsule wardrobe. I recommend 2 leopard jackets, both are very chic and extremely affordable! The first one is a really cool cropped leopard puffer jacket that I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on it! It can be dressed up with either of the jeans from this capsule wardrobe and the black booties or dressed down with a simple tee and sneakers. I love that it’s cropped because if you’re on the petite side (5’4 or under) it will make you look taller!
The other leopard jacket I’m recommending is a fabulous leopard blazer that is so incredible! Pair this timeless leopard blazer with the jeans or leather pants from below for the perfect going out look sure to get you a few compliments!
4.) GRAY CARDIGAN:
This chic cardigan is from Topshop and it’s only $55! You may recall seeing it in one of my latest blog posts titled: THE BEST $45 FALL ACCESSORY. This fabulous cardigan comes in 4 colors, I recommend either the charcoal gray or the olive green version. It can be paired with any of the jeans, camis, or the long sleeve tee to create a fall look that is not only stylish but very comfortable too!
5.) BLACK AND WHITE CAMISOLE:
I have this Alice and Olivia bodysuit camisole in black AND white because it’s that good! I’ve only had them for about a month now and I’ve literally already worn them a ton under all of my jackets! This bodysuit is actually comfortable and I love that it comes in a bodysuit style so you never have to worry about it coming untucked. It’s wrinkle-free and I love the draping which is perfect for showing off a few of your favorite necklaces. This gorgeous satin cami can be paired with any of the jackets above to create a chic and effortless fall look!
6.) CASHMERE SWEATER:
Every woman needs a chic and cozy cashmere sweater in her wardrobe, especially in the fall and winter. I love this under $100 one by Halogen from Nordstrom. Yes, you heard me right, this one is under $100 which is unheard of for cashmere! This is a good one and comes in multiple colors which I love. I recommend adding the black, gray, or ivory for the purposes of this capsule wardrobe. Trust me, on blistery cold fall or winter days, you’ll be happy you grabbed this chic sweater because it will make you feel so cozy! It’s not too bulky either which means it will layer nicely under any jacket.
7.) LONG SLEEVE TEE:
I always reach for long-sleeve tees in the fall and winter to wear them under jackets so I’m always on the hunt to find a good one. Well, I found the perfect scoop-neck long sleeve tee by Splendid. It’s super soft and the price point is amazing!
8.) LEOPARD CAMISOLE:
Going on a date night or a girl’s night out? Pair this chic leopard camisole under any of the jackets listed above except the leopard one and you’ll be good to go! I wear my leopard cami a ton under my leather jackets and blazers and always get a ton of compliments when I do! I found a more budget-friendly version for under $40!
9.) LEATHER PANTS:
Don’t feel like wearing a dress to your next event or party, well if you have a good pair of leather pants in your closet you can wear those instead! The leather pants I’m recommending are by J Brand and they’re so flattering and will no doubt make you look taller and slimmer! I just did a blog post wearing these exact pants titled: 4 LOOKS I WORE TO NYFW so be sure and check that out too. They’re high-rise and the leather is super soft so these pants are very comfortable which is always a plus! I wear them a ton during the holiday season making them well worth the investment. If these are out of your budget, no worries, I found these faux leather pants that are super chic and a fraction of the price.
10.) BLACK JEANS:
A pair of flattering black jeans are a must in any functional wardrobe! The ones I’m recommending are called the ALI and they’re by Frame. I’ve put them on my blog a ton lately and literally wear them all the time! They’re super high-waisted with an ankle-length which is the perfect slimming formula. If you have more of an edgy style like me then I would get the acid wash version. If you have more of a classic style then I would get the true black version. Trust me, you will LOVE these super slimming jeans, I know I do!
11.) GRAY JEANS:
Gray jeans or faded black jeans are my personal favorite color of denim to wear in the fall and winter. They make any fall ensemble look polished and put together and gray really does go with everything making these jeans extremely versatile! Pair these under $100 gray jeans from Express with any of the jackets or tops from this capsule wardrobe and your guaranteed a chic fall look! And by the way, these jeans are seriously THE BEST UNDER $100 JEANS EVER MADE!!!!! They run true to size, I wear a size 0 short.
12.) BLACK BOOTIES:
I wear black booties a ton in the fall and winter, anyone else? They literally match everything and the ones I’m recommending by Marc Fisher are super comfortable and wearable because of the block heel. I recently featured the booties in a blog post and on my YouTube channel in a post titled: FALL BOOT EDIT so be sure and check that out if you haven’t already.
13.) LEOPARD HEELS:
Leopard heels are another wardrobe staple sure to chic up any look! I love them paired with the camel leather jacket from above and black or gray denim. The ones I’m recommending are by Sam Edelman and they’re currently ON SALE making them a crazy good deal!
14.) SNAKE PRINT BOOTS:
If you only add one pair of boots to your fall shoe collection let them be snake print! The ones I’m recommending are by Jimmy Choo and I’m obsessed! These knee-high snake print boots are literally the most beautiful boots I’ve ever laid eyes on! Pair these with the black blazer or cashmere sweater from above and the black jeans or leather pants for a fall look sure to turn a few heads! I realize these are expensive so I found some very similar by Schutz that I love and they’re a fraction of the price!

15.) BLACK AND GOLD BELT:
Adding a belt any of these looks you can create from this capsule wardrobe will no doubt make it look more polished and put together. I just got this skinny gold and black Gucci belt and I wear it a ton with camels, leopard print, and black so it really goes perfectly in this capsule wardrobe. If this belt is out of your budget, no worries, I found a super chic skinny belt with gold hardware that I love and it’s under $100!

16.) BLACK MIDI DRESS:
This is the dress I’m wearing in the post and trust me when I say it’s one of the most flattering dresses I’ve ever put on my body! The ruching on this dress does a great job of hiding any flaws or challenging areas and a black midi dress can be worn almost anywhere dressy or casual! Dress it up like I did in this post and wear it to an event, a party, a date night, and even a Sunday brunch or church. I love this dress worn with a jacket layered over it which really takes this fall look up a few notches! The best part, this super slimming dress is under $100 making it a definite must-have!
