A Fall Capsule Wardrobe for $500

Capsule Fall Wardrobe | Midtown Magnolia Blog

In case you didn’t know, there are some really great fall sales going on this weekend! Old Navy is having up to 50% off, everything at Loft is 40% off, A&F is 40% off, and Anthropologie’s sale items are an additional 40% off! Instead of simply sharing my favorite items from each sale, however, I thought I would show you how to take advantage of the sales to build a capsule fall wardrobe for less than $500.

As we approach new seasons, I always think about what pieces will make up my “capsule wardrobe.” These items become my outfit building blocks. They are typically classic, neutral pieces that I can mix-and-match to create a number of looks. I find that starting with a capsule wardrobe helps me avoid thinking I have nothing to wear because there’s always a new combination to create. Plus, once you have these key pieces, it’s a lot easier to incorporate the trendier items without looking too trendy!

There are 17 pieces in the fall capsule wardrobe that I created, and in my opinion, they cover everything you might need this season. By sticking to a color palette of green, navy, and burgundy, you can mix-and-match almost any one of these pieces together. There’s also plenty of options for layering to create even more looks! Here are a few outfits combinations I would create with the pieces above:




I could think of at least ten more outfit combinations, making these capsule wardrobe pieces well worth the investment. Thanks to the sales this weekend, the investment isn’t even that great. Below you can see that if you were to purchase this complete wardrobe it would be less than $500! Now that’s styling more with less!
