How to Build a Timeless Fall-Ready Capsule Wardrobe


The Capsule Wardrobe - It's the perfect way to not only simplify your closet and your life but, also smoothly transition your wardrobe into a new season.

This post is created in collaboration with FrankDarling. All words and opinions expressed are my own.

If you're not familiar with what a capsule wardrobe is, it's pretty much a curated wardrobe of versatile clothing pieces that you just love to wear. Each season you clear and refresh your closet only keeping a set number of versatile pieces tailored to that season in your wardrobe...and the rest? It goes into storage until next season! A timeless capsule collection focuses on quality pieces you love that fit the current season and those pieces can be used to build a range of outfits every time. Plus, if you have a limited budget and limited time to get ready in the morning, but want to stay looking stylish daily, capsule wardrobes are the way to go.

A capsule collection is made to hold those set pieces that you can rely on to mix and match for a range of outfit recipes. Plus, it's a great way to refresh some classics and play with trends. So, keep scrolling to discover the staple pieces you can use to build your fall capsule wardrobe!

Leather Pieces

Leather pieces are such chic fashion staples and this season is no different. A quality leather (or pleather) jacket is a must-have, as it works with anything instantly elevating the look of any outfit. It's a great layering piece over a knit sweater or over a slip dress.

Style Tip: When shopping around for a leather jacket, make sure to look into one that can comfortably be worn over your sweaters, as well!

A Blazer

Blazers are a must-have piece for any wardrobe and any season. And right now, belted blazers have been a huge trend giving the classic blazer a new and refined look. A trendy take on this timeless classic, throwing on a belt over your go-to blazer is the best way to complete a layered look and it also gives you a cinched waist.

Gold Jewelry

Gold jewelry pieces are the best approach to bringing any look together in an elevated and chic way when styling. Layering jewelry is a unique way to take on a different approach when styling and simple contemporary jewelry pieces are a classic way to start. I love styling and layering my everyday jewelry pieces together. My favorites are necklaces, anything gold and a lot of different ring and earring combinations that I love to work with when styling. I have a good mix of things I love to style on a day to day basis. And, recently when layering my rings, one of my favorite pieces to layer has been the Frank Darling Billie NO. 2 Five Stone Band in Yellow Gold. This contemporary-styled jewelry piece is such a chic addition to my jewelry collection! It's a stackable ring that I've worn with a lot of my other rings for that perfect layered look.


"Versatility, comfort, durability, — women face so many challenges with their engagement rings. Life is different today, and we wanted to design a collection that's made for modern women," says Kegan Fisher, the co-founder of Frank Darling, a fine jewelry brand redefining the shopping experience for people looking for their dream rings. I also had the opportunity to try out the FrankDarling Try At Home Kit which offers a sustainable and highly personalized shopping experience from the comfort of your home. The FrankDarling Try At Home Kit allows you to browse the collection online and select four styles you'd like to try on at home for a week. This is a great way for you to test out the prospective ring styles before you hone in on the perfect one and make it yours.

"Yes, the rings are elegant, clean, and sculptural, but we spent twice as much effort on finger feel. Lower profile designs, smooth bezels, and stackable bands define our collection. They're bold, timeless, and contemporary pieces made for the modern women." - Kegan Fisher

I've always been a fan of feminine delicate pieces especially when it comes to rings. And lately, I've been wearing the gold Billie NO. 2 Band and at this point, I can't imagine accessorizing without it. It's really a classic piece of jewelry with a clean and elegant look, like many Frank Darling pieces, and I can't get enough.

A Classic Trench

Now that we're making our way into peak layering season, trench coats are a must-have. These pieces are a staple everyone needs in their closets for the ever-changing weather this season brings us. Trench coats are tried-and-true elevated basics that can be worn over any of your looks this Fall and keep you looking stylish on the go.

A Statement Bag

A chic go-to bag can last you all season long! It's all about finding something that fits your personal style and needs. I have a couple of neutral bags in different styles that I adore, and even better? They can be paired with any outfit!

But, if you're looking to snag the It Bag of the season...chunky chain strap bags are where it's at. These bags were already spotted making their debut this August all over the city streets of Copenhagen during Copenhagen Fashion Week. There is an endless selection of styles for every kind of bag lover in terms of silhouette, color, and price point. This is a statement piece you'll definitely want to have on your arm this season.
