Would you like to improve your quality of life and live more simply? Starting a fall capsule wardrobe is a great place to start. There are many advantages to having fewer clothes. Plus, cleaning out your closet and keeping only a few basic pieces to mix and match can save you time and money.

But not only that, capsule wardrobes eliminate decision fatigue and ensure that you always look great because the items you do own work well together. You can create numerous outfits from these basic pieces. I designed this casual capsule wardrobe for fall. It’s perfect if you work from home (like me), enjoy being able to work out any time of day, or are a busy mom. It would also make a great capsule wardrobe for traveling in the fall.

Minimalist Fall Capsule Wardrobe

This minimalist capsule wardrobe contains 10 affordable items, plus shoes and accessories. You have a tee-shirt, a flannel, 2 sweaters, a vest, a utility jacket, and a denim jacket. It also includes a pair of jeans, leggings, joggers, sneakers, and boots.

Minimal Clothes And Shoes

1st Row:
white tee
flannel shirt (I own and love this.)
turtleneck sweater (similar)
crewneck sweater

2nd Row:
utility jacket (I own a similar one.)
jeans (I own and love these!)
black leggings (I own and love these in multiple colors!)
denim jacket (I own and love this!)

3rd Row:
chelsea boots
black joggers (I own and love these in another color!)

Minimalist Accessories

1st Row:
gold earrings

2nd Row:
gold pendant necklace
gold bar necklace

3rd Row:
crossbody bag

For the accessories, I added a beautiful bar necklace, a pendant necklace (my daughter has this in emerald green), and earrings. They’re all gold so you can wear them interchangeably.

The medium-sized black leather crossbody bag is large enough to hold all of your essentials but isn’t so big that it’s clunky. And I love the pebble leather because it’s polished, but a little rugged too. Perfect with casual looks, but it works well dressed up also.

Simple Fall Capsule Wardrobe Outfits

There are so many fall outfits you can create using these 10 pieces. I’ve put 24 outfits together below to give you a head start! You can add more tops or bottoms in neutral colors to create even more looks. Also, you could add a dress or pantsuit, a pair of dress pants, and a nice silk top or sweater for professional work attire.

Benefits Of A Fall Capsule Wardrobe

  1. It makes getting dressed easier. When you can see everything in your closet choosing what to wear is a breeze! Fewer choices = simplicity.
  2. It’s a great way to save money. When you buy fewer clothes it cuts down on overall spending.
  3. You’re always in style. Stocking your capsule wardrobe with classic basic pieces (instead of trends that go out of style quickly) ensures that you’ll always look put together.
  4. You conserve energy and reduce waste by owning and wearing only those pieces that you love the most. (As Marie Kondo says, “Does it bring me joy?”)
  5. When you minimize the number of items in your wardrobe (or life) it makes your gratitude overflow. It’s amazing how this works, really. Could it have something to do with realizing how much peace and happiness you achieve by having less stuff?

  1. I for sure have way to many clothes! I need to de clutter this time when I move . As i pack my stuff i need to get rid of things that don’t need to come with me

    1. Hi Mimi! Oh, I hate clutter too! To be honest, I love clothes and I haven’t reached the purely minimalist lifestyle…yet. But I’ve cleaned out a lot over the past few years and it’s made such a difference which makes me want to keep going.

    1. I hear you, Marta! I’m not there yet in real life but have embraced minimalism in my mind. (Does that count?) Moving more that direction anyway. I agree and I’ve found that this helps me get more use out of my favorite pieces when I can mix and match and everything goes together.
