Capsule Closet Series

10 Classy Pre-Fall Outfits

After months of casual summer outfits, I am beyond ready for the polished nature of fall look, knits and third pieces. Here are 10 looks to inspire you this week that will help you get into the spirit of fall, but without over-heating.

My favorite combinations for this time of year always include shorts + sweaters, blazers + shorts and boyfriend jeans in general.

If you look at Outfit #6, this is one of my favorite tricks to do when styling an outfit and I do this a lot when I travel. If you combine the same color lace-trim cami and high-waisted shorts, it makes it look like a pretty formal romper and blazer (perfect for a night out!). But if you break it down, it’s actually very casual pieces.

You can see Outfit #8 in real life here.

About The Capsule Closet:

Long story short, after years of traveling and living out of suitcases during study abroad, out of state internship and such, I became an expert on creatively styling basics with a limited amount of pieces and never repeating a single outfit.

Like many, before I created a capsule closet, I had a wardrobe overflowing with clothes but had “nothing to wear.” This is where my Ultimate Capsule Closet Checklist comes in. After years of editing, styling and seeing trends come and go, these were the pieces that pulled their weight and never really went out of style.

Once I created The Ultimate Capsule Closet, I felt inspired, stylish and chic with much less effort. Looking stylish while traveling was much simpler and I got rid of 90% of my closet (and didn’t miss it at all).

Hope this all can inspire you this week. If you replicate one of the outfits, make sure to #CSScapsulecloset so I can see!

As always, thank you for reading.
