The Art of Transition: Building Your Summer-to-Fall Capsule Wardrobe

The Art of Transition: Building Your Summer-to-Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Building Your Summer-to-Fall Capsule Wardrobe

As the vibrant summer goes away, giving way to the cooler fall days, we are faced with the challenge of curating, once again, the perfect wardrobe that fits all our needs while still looking stylish and not harming the planet. Balancing the need for comfort, sustainability, style and versatility is a task on its own. But don't worry! We are here to help you and guide you with some tips and key pieces on how to transition your wardrobe into fall seamlessly.

Let's start with a list of some items that will help you through this!

  • A Button Up: A Breeze of Versatility

A light and soft button-up shirt like our Airy Gauze Button-up can emerge on your capsule wardrobe as a true champion of versatility. Its lightweight and breathable fabric makes it a staple on warmer days. You can wear it with your favourite pair of denim shorts or with a Tailored Ponte Short for a more polished look. Any way, it will exude a carefree summer vibe for sure.

When going to an end-of-summer gathering, or even to work, the recipe for success would be pairing it up with a midi skirt, our Rib Knit Midi Skirt is the perfect combination to achieve that effortlessly elegant look.

As the weather starts to cool down, this classic piece remains relevant. You can layer it on top of a tank, like our Rib Knit Reversible Tank and put on your favourite denim pants.

  • A Simple T-shirt: The Epitome of Comfy Chic.

An item that shouldn't be missed in a capsule wardrobe is an effortless t-shirt. And right on topic there's The Effortless Crewneck T-Shirt, that can be certain to be a canvas for any type of outfit you can imagine, all year round.

For warmer days and cooler nights there's nothing a cropped wide leg can't do. Pair the Effortless Crewneck T-shirt with our Rib Knit Cropped Wide Leg and feel you're wearing your pyjamas to work.

Once the crisper fall days start arriving, you can always throw a blazer over, like our Unblazer, and pair it up with denim- a classic combination that exudes sophistication while keeping you relaxed. Looking for an edgier look? Pair it with a sleek leather jacket and your favourite sweatpants (aka The Dressy Sweatpant).

  • A Tailored Pant: The Essence of Elegance.

Our Tailored Ponte Pant is structured enough to bring that touch of elegance to your capsule wardrobe and as summer fades it can become the foundation for a sophisticated look.
Pair them with our Airy Gauze Reversible Tank for the warmer days and throw the Airy gauze Button up Shirt over once it starts cooling off. Or, you could also wear it with a sweater. The truth is that the possibilities are endless.

Making it a thoughtful transition

Embracing classic pieces that stand the test of time is one of the key aspects of building a good transitional capsule wardrobe. A classic button up, an effortless crewneck and tailored pants are just some examples of this quality that will allow you to pair them with various items in your closet, year after year.

Also, a capsule wardrobe built around versatile pieces not only reduces clutter, gives you back your time but also inserts a sustainable approach to life. Selecting timeless classics that you could dress up or down and any time of the year helps minimize our environmental impact while still maintaining our style clear.

Crafting a wardrobe that seamlessly navigates through the seasons becomes an art form. And with some of these pieces in your closet we bet you'll be ready to conquer the cooler days ahead in style. Let's celebrate the changing of the seasons while looking stylish and feeling oh, so comfy!
