The autumn capsule wardrobe experiment
Aaahhh, capsule wardrobes…the stuff easy-living dreams are made of! As airline baggage restrictions get tighter and more expensive, it’s advisable to take only what’s needed and only in your carry-on. Thus, creating a very real need for a capsule-wardrobe that can easily be transferred from place to place, or if you don’t travel much, it’s still supposed to create some much needed closet space and a clearer mind. Now packing a capsule wardrobe for 1 week – 1 month trips, I have gotten quite good at. The challenge here is actually using the same kind of capsule wardrobe on a daily basis for the entirety of autumn. No travel necessary.
So, I ran straight to one of my favorite department stores: Stockmann and after some mental back-and-forth on what would work best, purchased the following pieces.
* Navy corduroy pants from Noom
* Chestnut sweater from Vila
* Faux neck cableknit sweater dress in eggshell from Veromoda
* Super soft cashmere beanie and scarf from Balmuir
* Navy wool gloves from Etcetera
Add to these an already existing pair of skinny jeans from Tiger of Sweden, Striped top from Tory Burch and beige suede knee-high heeled boots from BCBG and we’ve got the makings of a fantastic autumn capsule wardrobe!
I also could not possibly resist the addition of a fantastic nail polish and matching lipgloss from Chanel. (Colours: Lovely beige 663 & gloss 46) I’m not a huge beige fan when it comes to lips and nails, but this reminds me of that warm cinnamon, pumpkin, clove feel that autumn brings… So I HAD to have it!
Best of luck with your autumn capsule wardrobe!
