Inspiration for an Autumn Capsule Collection

A collection of items ideal for a creative capsule wardrobe.

Over the past few weeks I have really been starting to think about Autumn, and you know what that means…

It’s time to start wearing mustard again!

I absolutely adore mustard. The colour, not the food! As I am trying to reduce waste at the moment I’ve been really thinking about the pieces of clothing that I already own, and coming up with an autumn capsule wardrobe. My dream situation would be to integrate what I already own in my wardrobe and add in a few new Autumnal pieces to bring it all together. Above is a list of my favourites!

I’m absolutely adoring the mustard bag from Accessorize, and as I don’t own many bags, I really am considering treating myself to it. Accessorize bags are fantastic quality and mine have lasted for years, although I am considering holding out for a while and having a browse round some thrift shops first! Button down dresses have also been in trend this Summer and I’d love to integrate one into my autumn capsule. This denim button down dress is perfect, and would look great with a plain white tee and perhaps some tights underneath in colder months.

As I already own a pair of black culottes, as you can see in my previous fashion posts, I won’t be purchasing this beautiful pair from Oasis. But these do look like they’re fantastic quality and I’d absolutely recommend Oasis to anybody looking for a quality brand that lasts well. I love culottes so much that I wear them all year round; Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. They’re a great transitional piece and I can guarantee more than a seasons’ wear out of them.

I also thought that the burgundy dress was a fantastic versatile piece and an absolute bargain at the price! It’d be fantastic for winter weddings, the christmas party and you could even wear it for new years’ eve alongside some statement jewellery!

    That Oasis dress is so pretty! I have been meaning for so long to have a capsule wardrobe. But, I have to bring about 34 outfits for a two night getaway. Maybe it’s not for me!

    I absolutely love that wine colored dress. It would be perfect for wearing to work or to a matinee theatre performance — it’s absolutely lovely. Also, love the pop of color with the yellow handbag.

    Lovely post! x

    Fall is my absolute favorite season for shopping – I just love all the harvest colors (mustard included!). This post gave me the itch to go out and to indulge in some real “retail therapy”! Thanks for sharing.

    Oh I love Autumn and the change in wardrobe! That mustard bag is a beauty and I may have to treat myself. Plum/burgundy is beautiful and Iā€™m so glad to see it for the season as well.
    Lovely post Chloe. Thanks for sharing the great ideas!
