Sizzling Trends for The Cold Months
Autumn is the season we all know and love. It’s a season full of rich colors, pumpkin spice lattes, and crisp air. But as much as we love autumn, the season can be filled with anxiety for those shopping or planning their winter wardrobe! We want to make sure you don’t get cold feet about your wardrobe this season – so here are some great fall fashion ideas to keep you warm and stylish throughout the colder months!
Fashion: Hot trends for autumn
Traditional autumn colors are orange, yellow, brown, green, and grey. With a twist, add some sequins, faux leather, and sprinkle with some confidence. Now that fast fashion is a thing of the past, do your research, know your body shape, and then you can buy an item of clothing that will always be on-trend, and never go out of style.
A classic capsule autumn wardrobe mixes in investment pieces from all seasons to keep a fresh look throughout the year!
Build a capsule wardrobe
Suppose you’re thinking about updating your look but don’t know where to start building a capsule wardrobe. What is a capsule wardrobe, though? A capsule wardrobe is a pared-down collection of high-quality clothing.
A typical capsule wardrobe would contain around 20 items, with multiple variations on each piece to create different looks and outfits! A classic Autumn capsule wardrobe mixes in investment pieces from all seasons to keep a fresh look throughout the year.
You can include elements in your closet that you already own and need to switch out the items. Some common examples of the contents of a well-made capsule wardrobe are:
Twenty clothing items – this number is enough for one outfit each day for three months. Keep the color wheel to a minimum by choosing Autumn colors like orange, brown, and yellow. Twenty may sound like a lot, but if you rotate these clothes throughout this period, they will last longer, which means fewer shopping trips!
Dress pants, jeans, and leggings are staples for a capsule wardrobe as you can wear them to work or on weekends with different layers of tops! Make sure you have both black and dark blue denim to have a variety in your closet. You don’t want to sport the same pair of jeans every day if it’s not necessary! Mix up casual outfits by wearing sneakers (Nike Air Max) or loafers (Cole Haan). A good rule would be to have two pairs of each.
Blazers aren’t just for work anymore but instead thrown over any outfit at any time.
Since blazers come in different colors and styles (double-breasted versus single), make sure you try them all out to see which ones compliment your body type best!
Two basic t-shirts will never go out of style, so this is an easy staple to incorporate into any capsule wardrobe. Make sure these tops fit well by being loose enough at the bottom without stretching too much over time.
Fashion these days is about investment pieces of clothing made from sustainable materials, either from vintage stores or upcycled. Don’t feel bad if you have no idea where to start, as most women struggle to invest in their wardrobes. So here are some ideas that will help guide you on your way.
First things first, think about what kind of items you need and use the 80/20 rule to decide whether an item is essential or not. The 80-20 rule states that your wardrobe’s best assets should be identified and used efficiently to maximize value.
So go through your clothes and identify the items you wear the most and if they bring you joy, keep them and only replace them when they wear out. The remaining clothes should be sold or given away, giving you space to see what you have and then what you should buy.
A great winter coat
Your coat is a staple item and part of the capsule you should spend the most money on. For a great coat, think about investing in one that you can pair with multiple outfits and for different occasions.
To find the perfect winter coat choose something warm but not bulky as you’ll want to keep your silhouette slim, especially if you’re wearing heavy layers! Don’t forget to look at coats made from natural fibers like wool or cashmere, as these are both insulating fabrics that help keep out the wind chill.
Even better, a coat made from a mix of wool, cashmere, and silk, recycled fibers taken from deadstock and made into a luxurious winter coat that will last a lifetime!
Whether you’re trying to refresh your appearance or add a few new items to your wardrobe for the new season, the proper accessories may make all the difference. It’s easy to go overboard with thick winter jackets and scarves, making it difficult to accessorize. Here are some suggestions to help you polish any look!
Socks should be fun and playful in colors like orange, yellow, or green. Keep them thick so they’ll keep out that cold air from autumn nights. You might even want some woolly socks, too, if you get chilly!
A good scarf is vital when trying not to get sick during these colder months. Choose something large enough where it won’t slip off while wearing other layers.
A beanie is another essential winter accessory that keeps your head warm and cozy! In this case, choose something with patterns or designs to help keep you looking cool even when it is cold outside.
Go with us on this one; buy a new bag every season, because much like your coat, it’s the item that will give you the most wear per dollar.
