If you’ve read the post from last year’s autumn wardrobe essentials then you’ll already be quite up-to-date. We aim for long-lasting, timeless pieces to go in our capsules, so it makes sense that there will be items that stay on the list year after year. However, as time progresses, so do our styling habits. So there are a few different pieces you may spot.
As well as timeless, we want comfortable, stylish, and versatile items. It is quite a challenge to find new things that meet all the criteria. Here at SBS, the hard work has been done for you. As the days begin to shorten and the temperatures start to dip, we get ready to add some layers and update our outfits but still have a great time. Some of your closet from last season will make it over to this part of the year, so you might be wondering what’s new.
The good news is that whether you are returning for another year of autumn wardrobe inspiration, or completely new here and wanting to create your own fall capsule wardrobe, everything is here for you to get what you need. It’s a good idea to take notes. Here is your autumn capsule wardrobe 2023.

If your closet has become a black hole of fast fashion, fear not! These tips are here to save you!
There you have it. Your fall capsule wardrobe 2023 is now ready. Take a look at what you have from the summer to implement now. Did you notice the updated items from last year? I bet you’re already getting ideas for the different outfits you can create.
There’s a reason the phrase “fall fashion” instantly conjures up images of pumpkin spice lattes, crisp air, and cozying up in chunky knits – autumn truly is the perfect time for style.
As we bid farewell to summer’s heat and welcome the new season, your autumn capsule wardrobe becomes your best fashion friend. Versatile pieces are the heroes here, turning fewer clothes into endless looks.
No single item makes the outfit. They have to work together. Start with the basics: black jeans, a pair of classic jeans in a dark wash, and perhaps some skinny jeans if you’re feeling adventurous. Pair them with a white tee or black tee – your little bit of canvas for different looks. And don’t forget the long-sleeve tee for those colder days!
Add some spice with a graphic t-shirt, a true testament to your own personal style in the fall season. Layer with a denim jacket, a *vegan* leather jacket, or a plaid blazer. And for those rainy, early fall days, nothing beats a classic trench coat.
Fashion For Thought
A midi skirt or midi dress adds a feminine touch, while a sweater dress paired with knee-high boots is a timeless outfit that screams “autumn.”
Ballet flats are a great staple for a more casual look, and white sneakers can make your entire wardrobe feel fresh and new. Don’t underestimate the power of neutral colors – or should I say neutral colours, for our UK fashionistas.
A navy jumper or a half-zip sweater in merino wool can be mixed and matched in different ways. And a black boot is a must.
Transitional pieces are the secret sauce of a seasonal capsule wardrobe. So is a great piece like a good quality, plain white T-shirt or a pair of black pants. They’re the first thing you’ll want to grab for everyday wear. And let’s be honest, is it even autumn if you’re not wearing chunky knits at least once a week?
As a sustainable brand advocate, I encourage you to think not just about new items but also about timeless, classic style. Your fall travel capsule wardrobe should be about experiencing the joy of the season, not the stress of fashion trends. So curl up with your favorite seasonal capsule wardrobe picks and remember, the best thing about this time of year is that you can create unique outfit combinations, one pumpkin spice latte at a time!
I love to see how you make these pieces your own. Show me your style by shooting me a pic of your outfits, on socials. Find me on Instagram at @savinaofficial.
