How to create a Deep Autumn Capsule Wardrobe

Looking for outfit ideas for a deep autumn capsule wardrobe? This post will show you how to create one, including 13 key pieces you can style to look amazing.

There are multiple color schemes to adopt for Autumn. We recently shared the classic autumn wardrobe and soft autumn color scheme which focused on muted, gentle, neutral tones and timeless patterns. However, for those who love and look good in autumn colors (burnt oranges, magenta, fiery reds), this dark autumn capsule wardrobe should give you styling inspiration for the season.

In a hurry? Don’t forget to save this.

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

Imagine a streamlined closet filled with interchangeable pieces you love to wear. That’s the essence of a capsule wardrobe. It’s a curated collection designed for maximum outfit creation with minimal clothing.

The capsule wardrobe movement is gaining traction for a reason. It’s a shift from quantity to quality, where you invest in pieces that will last. With a capsule wardrobe, getting dressed becomes a breeze, freeing up your time for what truly matters.

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe?

This is a mini-capsule, so it’s about choosing few core pieces you’ll wear often. Here are some additional tips

  • Invest in Quality: Focus on well-made pieces that will last. However budget should not limitation. You can still shop from your favourite low-priced store.
  • Accessorize: Elevate your looks with statement jewellery, scarves, and belts in the accent colours of this capsule (mustard yellow, burgundy)
  • Layering is Key: Maximize outfit options by layering tops, cardigans, and jackets.
  • Shop Your Closet: See what you already own in your Dark Autumn color palette.

Deep Autumn Capsule Wardrobe list

This mini-capsule is made up of 7 clothing items excluding the accessories. Remember that this is just meant to inspire you, and you can adapt it to your needs.

  • Burnt Orange Jumper
  • Creamy Beige basic longsleeve
  • Camel coat
  • Magenta ribbed knit dress
  • Dark Wash jeans
  • Olive green trousers
  • Brown tapered trousers
  • Black boots
  • Taupe loafers
  • Brown belt
  • Statement bag


1.Creamy Beige Basic Longsleeve: This is a versatile piece that can be worn on its own or layered under other tops. It provides a neutral base for various outfit combinations.

2.Burnt Orange Jumper: This vibrant deep autumn color adds a pop of warmth and personality to your wardrobe. The chunky knit style will give you a comfortable and cozy feel.


3. Magenta Ribbed Knit Dress: This dress is a statement piece in itself. The ribbed knit texture adds a touch of dimension, while the bold magenta color makes it perfect for a night out or grabbing coffee with a friend.


4. Dark Wash Jeans: These are a classic and versatile choice, perfect for casual outings, errands, coffee dates, and even a relaxed night out. They can be dressed up or down depending on the top and shoes you pair them with.

5. Olive Green Trousers: The olive green trousers offer a more casual option compared to jeans. This green is one of my favourites in the deep autumn colour palette and can be worn for running errands. It will pair nicely with the casual long sleeve in the palette.

6. Brown Tapered Trousers: Tapered trousers add a touch of modern style to your wardrobe. The brown color aligns with the deep autumn palette and is a more dressed-up alternative to jeans. They’re perfect for the office or a casual weekend brunch when paired with a blouse or sweater.


7. The camel coat: This is a fantastic choice for any deep autumn capsule. It’s a timeless and versatile piece that complements the warm tones in the palette. However, many people might not want to stick to only one coat for all events, so for a more complete wardrobe, here are some additional outerwear options to consider:

  • Leather Jacket (Burgundy or Dark brown or Black): A leather jacket in a deep autumn color adds a touch of edge and personality to your outfit. You can also consider a neutral leather jacket in Black.
  • Cardigan (Mustard Yellow or Olive Green): A chunky knit cardigan in mustard yellow or olive green is a great addition. Mustard yellow adds a cheerful touch, while olive green offers a more earthy feel.
  • For more dressier occasions, you can throw in a Navy Peacoat. A navy peacoat is a timeless and sophisticated outerwear option, perfect for places you wont want to wear your leather jacket or everyday coat to such as the office or night outs.
