Even if we have only just met, I already know one thing about you. You have style. That’s why you’re here. So let’s take a closer look at the long-awaited capsule wardrobe fall we wish to create this season.
Contrary to Lady Gaga and all her public appearances, I won’t make a grand entrance, because a huge part of STYLE BY SAVINA is focused on the ultimate capsule wardrobe and what you need to know about it.
You already have the basics, but people say practice makes perfect, so I’ll repeat: versatility, quality over quantity, timeless pieces, neutral tones, sustainability.
Without further ado, I suggest we dive deep into all the key items you need for your capsule wardrobe fall 2022.
11 STAPLES FOR THE PERFECT CAPSULE WARDROBE FALL 2022:
1. Cashmere Blend Turtleneck Dress
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but fall = brown, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Therefore, it’s only logical to start my fall capsule wardrobe checklist with a timeless turtleneck dress in a timeless color.
It comes with a matching belt and has this elegant (and yet trendy) loose-fitting, oversized sleeves. They reach up to the wrist, so adding some big bracelets seems like the right thing to do.
Again, agree with me or not, not many fashion pieces could be perfect for the big meeting with your boss and for the big date night with your bae. This one is.
2. Belted Trench Coat
Well, well, well. What do we have here? A trench coat? Yes. The perfect trench coat for your classic capsule wardrobe? Hell, yes!
I don’t usually use this phrase, but come on, look at it! It’s lightweight! Elevated with an oversized collar, wide belt, and draped back panel! Beige! It’s just begging for rainy days! Follow Blake Lively’s example and wear it with high heels, or channel your inner Irina Shayk with a pair of white sneakers.
After all, trust me, this is a piece you’ll be loving all year long. Actually, I would be very surprised (read: disappointed) if you are not already.

3. Vegan Leather Leggings
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear ‘leather pants’? Ross Geller is the correct answer. But autumn capsule wardrobe essential is what I want to hear.
Before we get any further, I feel like I have to clarify that doing yoga in leather leggings is not something you should or… can… do.
Besides the fact plenty of high fashion brands have brought them back to the runway, a pair like this one is the focal point of most fall #OOTD. Think of a white shirt (see the best here), camel coat, and high-platform boots. Now think of all likes and comments under your social media posts. You’re welcome!
4. Knitted Vest
To be honest, I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with vests. Writing capsule wardrobe fall winter right next to them may seem like a scary move to make. Especially if you are in the floral print camp, but the rumors are true – they are the capsule wardrobe fashion blogger move of the season.
My personal favorite is from ARKET. Sure, the rib-knitted trimmings look nice. And the Responsible Wool Standard certificate (yours truly always appreciates sustainable fashion practices, and you should too!) adds bonus points.
What makes it a great investment though are the endless style combinations you can create from it. Just throw on chino pants and a sustainable blazer. Open a new tab, so you can read up on this later.
5. Neutral Wide-Leg Pants
‘Perfection’! ‘Gorgeous’! ‘Stunning’! These are only a few of the reviews under this perfect, gorgeous, and stunning pair of neutral wide-leg pants.
Made of breathable, lightweight, soft fabric, and offered in a pretty wide (pun intended) range of sizes (from 00 to 16). You cannot be ready for the cold days without owning a fundamental piece like this one.
It’s like going to Starbucks and not getting Pumpkin Spice Latte – a horrible mistake. I know it sounds way too profound, but it is what it is. The minimalist fall capsule wardrobe requires devotion. Or a good friend to tell you all about it.

6. Oversized Stripe Sweatshirt
Similar to the something-is-the-new-black concept, reserving stripes for summer and summer only is such a misunderstanding. Fix it now with this oversized sweatshirt from ARKET – an absolute must-have in my 2022 capsule wardrobe. Why not in yours too?
Made of organic cotton, without any chemicals or too-hard-to-even-understand compounds, it’s a total win-win. Good for us and good for the Planet. I don’t know about you, but stripes always take me back to Paris and bring the inevitable (and so damn irresistible) French chic, even to the cloudiest day. The finishing touches? A pair of high-rise jeans, a big smile, a gold bracelet, rings, and a huuuuge bag. IYKYK.
7. Black Cashmere Crew Neck Top
As stated in the description of this black cashmere top, it doesn’t get more classic than a crew-neck sweater.
Where to begin? It’s cashmere, which means – super soft, warm, and lightweight at the same time. It’s black, so it should be on the top of your winter capsule wardrobe list. Keeping in mind the quality we are talking about, the price is pretty good. Plus, a handful of supermodels and celebrities (Kate Moss is enough to keep in mind) have attended this year’s Met Gala wearing black from head to toe.
I’m not saying that you have to follow their lead. But if you want to, don’t forget to add some statement jewelry.
8. Oversized Wool Blazer
I’m not going to lie. Building the work fall capsule wardrobe is not something you can do in a day or even a week. It’s a lot of work, work, work, work, work, work (in Rihanna’s voice), but choosing the best blazer is one of the first steps.
This favorite of mine is from & Other Stories. You can get it in sand or dark beige, but whatever your choice, you will look amazing both in your Zoom call and in the next IRL meeting that could have easily been a Zoom one.
The padded shoulders and duo button closures make it just outstanding.

9. Relaxed Belted Coat
Coats must tick a lot of boxes. They have to be warm (duh), look stylish (even with three scarves on top), easy to dress up, easy to dress down, and easy to match.
No matter what crosses our minds while heading to checkout, there’s no complete casual fall capsule wardrobe without *casual* and yet elegant outerwear. The self-tie belt is an accent itself. You also don’t need a bag because you have two large patch pockets at your disposal.
Let’s put it this way, if Zendaya was a coat, she would definitely be this one. I’m adding it to my fall shopping list. Are you?
10. Textured Sweater
I may run out of appropriate metaphors, but fall without a textured sweater is like Dua Lipa not killing the game – possible, but just not likely.
With its double-layered crew neckline, dropped shoulders, batwing sleeves, thick ribbed edges, and an oversized, relaxed fit, this piece from Everlane will level up your layering game. It will also keep you warm and make you look so comfortable being stylish that people will just assume it comes naturally to you.
11. Chunky Boots
It doesn’t matter if we are talking about a travel capsule wardrobe fall focused or capsule wardrobe in general, chunky boots are non-negotiable.
They are stylish, comfortable, and perfect if a rainstorm happens on your way to Fashion Week or to the grocery store.
Many people have been expressing A LOT of different opinions about their recent comeback, but you have tons of reasons to be all up for it. The color, the functionality, the fact that Victoria Beckham is a fan. You pick your favorite.
Now you’re ready to create your own fantastic fall capsule wardrobe. Show the world how your style levels up and the leaves fall down. Better yet, show me! Take a pic of your favorite fall outfit and tag me on Instagram. You know I love to see your capsule creations!
