10-Piece Capsule Wardrobe for a Month of Fall

Rotate Your Closet

I built a mini capsule wardrobe with 10 core items for a month of fall. Every day, depending on the weather and my mood I would then choose the accessories and shoes to complete the look. I took this styling challenge, because I know I have a tendency to purchase more than I need when the weather gets cold and the holiday sales kick in. By the way, please know that this is just part of my closet: I’m rotating what I have. This mini capsule is about 1/5 of my current full wardrobe, not including underwear/socks.

I’m not an extreme minimalist, nor do I inspire to be one, but I try to only keep things I actually use. Back in 2017, I built a summer capsule wardrobe for a month with 12 clothing items. Ever since then, I have shown myself repeatedly that rotating my closet this way is my solution to slow down my consumption. The side effect is that I feel I can only get dressed quickly in the morning with a season-based capsule wardrobe!

Plus, every mini capsule wardrobe like this is so packable for any week-long trip!
