Ever since I first heard of the capsule wardrobe lifestyle, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Imagine wearing only a collection of 15-20 pieces of clothing for an entire season. Do you think you could do it?
Fall is on it’s way and I’m starting to scheme up fashion & style strategies. Ever since I started blogging, I’ve been unknowingly dreaming up capsule collections for everyone I know. I would even create outfits for people that don’t exist! Any excuse to fantasize about buying beautiful clothing was good enough, and shopping online made that easy.
I could create fantasy capsule collections all day. So I headed over to Simply Be to create a little mini-capsule full of plus size clothing for women, fall fashion inspired. After years and years of the same fall fashion, I’m looking to shake things up. There are rarely capsule collections for plus size fashion inspiration, so that made this challenge even more appealing.
SimplyBe made it easy by having beautiful clothing in a huge size range!
While many people usually associate fall and autumn with warm tones like orange, brown, and yellow – I went a different route. I feel oversaturated with warm, rich tones in fall fashion, so a little reprieve was necessary.
First, let’s talk about the colors. Soft grey, neutrals, and bright pops of color are the basis for this capsule wardrobe. All of the typical fabrics found in fall fashion are present: denim, wool, velvet… I just wanted to take a fresher look at the best season of the year.
The shapes are also kind of typical fall shapes. We included a long sweater, long skinny jeans, a blazer, and a sweater which are all go-to items for fall. What might be a little bit atypical are the high-waisted shorts, velvet tank, and lace-up trousers.
If you’re thinking about getting plus-size jeans from Simply Be, you’re in for a treat. I chose these distressed skinny jeans because they’re versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on your needs. However, if you love any other type of denim, Simply Be has it in an extensive size range for you.
Whether you love your standard fall fashion or are looking to mix up your wardrobe, consider trying out a capsule collection for the whole season. It’ll make you pay better attention to the types of clothing you gravitate towards. You’ll be amazed at how much the experience will teach you about your own personal style.
