Although it’s only August, I know that most of you are beginning to shop for fall already…so I wanted to help you get a jump start on the new season. You don’t necessarily need to splurge on high-end pieces when creating a capsule wardrobe – the items I’ve selected below are well-made styles that are also affordably priced (many are on sale now!). I wanted to focus on the core separates you need for the coming season so I didn’t include basics like knit tees, camisoles or accessories like scarves, belts & bags. You can tell just by looking at the garments in this collage how many different outfit combinations you can create (let me know if you’d like me to do a follow-up post showing them all!). Take a look at my picks & then read on below for tips on how to build a closet of mix & match wardrobe staples.
1) Determine the colors you prefer & those that best flatter your skin tone. They don’t all have to be neutrals, but picking pieces in complimentary shades will ensure you can mix & match as many items as possible.
