Clothes can be complicated. We buy so many to have 100 perfect outfits to choose from. The problem is we tend to overbuy low-quality items and never quite seem to get them right.
What we end up with is tons of ill-fitting clothing we hate wearing and countless hours ripping through our closets like a mad woman trying to find anything we don’t feel awful in.

STEP ONE | DECLUTTER YOUR CLOSET
If you haven’t done this in a while, do a nice solid closet declutter and organization.
Purge through your clothes and remember to donate what you can, fix what you can, and recycle/trash what you can’t.
STEP TWO | SWAP OUT SUMMER FOR FALL & WINTER
Most of our serious summer clothing can be packed away for half the year. Unless you can use these clothing pieces throughout winter to layer up, then it is OK to put the thin strapless mini dress away for the season.
Get a nice fabric bin with a lid, under the bed storage, or even use a suitcase you know you won’t be used to temporarily store away your summer clothes to make additional space for everything fall and winter.

STEP THREE | STOCK UP ON YOUR FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE
You might already have a few things you can cross off the list. Make sure if you do have something you already own on this fall capsule wardrobe list, that it is a piece that fits you well.
Shop smart. I understand if buying a huge new wardrobe is out of the question.
You might need to buy at a minimum a few staple pieces that can mix and match with what you currently own. Try buying one piece per paycheck.
Hunt down quality over quantity. The secret sauce to capsule wardrobes is that you have a limited amount of quality clothing.
The reason being, is you are going to be wearing these pieces… a lot! If your loose tank top can’t handle a wash or two a week, then it will not be a good choice for a simplified wardrobe.
Hunt down local consignment stores in your area, they typically only purchase name-brand clothing from people. It’s not about the brand for status, it is about the longevity that these clothes last.
If budget is an issue, you will be pleasantly surprised how much name-brand clothing gets circulated at Goodwill!
A word of advice though, do not just settle. The idea of a perfect fall capsule wardrobe is well, that it’s perfect. If you settle for clothing that kind of works you will be disappointed.

STEP FOUR | MIX & MATCH
The coolest thing about having a fall capsule wardrobe is that you get to mix and match the same pieces to create different looks.
No one is going to remember you wore the same shirt on Monday. Especially if that same shirt is now paired with different pants, a jacket, and new shoes.
If you ever forget the many mixes and match options of your wardrobe, write out a list and tape it to the inside of your closet door.
Or print out pictures of the outfits mixed and matched for a quick reminder of the many choices you do have with your fall capsule wardrobe.
