How to create a Soft Autumn Capsule Wardrobe

This post is about the soft autumn capsule wardrobe and 17 key pieces that look amazing.

There are multiple color schemes to adopt for Autumn. The soft autumn color scheme is all about muted tones that are gentler, and less bold than the traditional autumn palette. For those who find the bold oranges and fiery reds of autumn a bit too brash, the colors of the soft autumn capsule wardrobe is a softer, dreamier side that leans towards the summer colors.

Capsule 1

What is a capsule wardrobe?

Ever feel overwhelmed by your closet overflowing with clothes you never wear? A capsule wardrobe can help you simplify things.

For those new to the concept, a capsule wardrobe is a curated selection of clothes that are interchangeable so you can mix and match easily to create a variety of outfits.

The growing interest is capsule wardrobe is undeniable. Capsule wardrobes emphasize investing in quality over quantity.

With fewer quality clothes to choose from, you’ll spend less time rifling through your closet and more time doing the things you love.

1| Classic Black Coat or Blazer

One of the key pieces of your wardrobe is a cozy coat or blazer. These two would make sure you don’t get cold and would help you look sophisticated.

For coats, consider wool because they are both warm and stylish. Good wool coats will give you many years of wear, so I highly recommend this luxury black coat in Italian Wool from JCrew. If you have a limited budget, this Mango’s Black Wool coat is a great alternative.

For Blazers, oversized Blazers are great because they allow you layer considerably as the weather gets colder throughout Autumn.


2| Knit sweater

Knitwear is essential during autumn season because to can get quite cold on some days. I’m obsessed with warm neutrals like taupe and beige, because it will complement everything in your soft autumn capsule. For a feminine twist, explore knitwear in calming colors like green tea or a dusty rose-pink.

3 | Basic Long sleeve

The basic long sleeve top in this capsule is perfect for layering and will be the foundation to many of your outfits. The capsules in this post feature a beige/cream or calming green long sleeve bodysuit. You can wear it under your sweaters or blazer on its own for a casual look. If you do not like bodysuits, you can always go for any regular long sleeve top and it may or may not be fitted, depending on your style preference.

4| Hoodie

For those lazy Sundays or crisp fall evenings, a comfy hoodie is a must-have. Look for one in a soft autumn shade like a muted olive green or a cream for a touch of sophistication.



5| Tailored Pants

This year is all about more relaxed fits, whether pants or Jeans. Tailored pants in a warm brown Black or a soft olive green will elevate your look. These pants add polish and can be dressed up for work or down for a casual weekend outfit. And if wide legged pants aren’t your thing, don’t worry, this capsule also features tapered pants.

6| Ivory Jeans

Lighten things up with a pair of ivory jeans. This versatile option can be dressed up with heels and a blouse or dressed down with sneakers and a sweater. They fit seamlessly into the soft autumn color palette.

7| Blue Jeans

A fall wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a pair of dark wash jeans. The dark wash complements the soft autumn palette beautifully, offering a neutral base you can build countless outfits around. They pair perfectly with sweaters, blouses, boots, or flats, making them incredibly versatile.

8 | Taupe Leggings

Soft and comfortable, taupe leggings are a must-have for casual autumn days. The taupe color adds a touch of warmth while remaining neutral, allowing them to pair effortlessly with various soft autumn tops and sweaters.

9| Leather Leggings

When you want to add an edge to your soft autumn look, leather leggings come to the rescue. Their sleek and slightly edgy vibe complements the warm tones of the palette. Pair them with your cozy sweater for a stylish yet comfortable fall outfit. Don’t forget some ankle boots or booties to complete the look!



10 | Knit Dress

A knit dress in a soft autumn color like cream, sage green or dusty rose is a dream addition to your capsule wardrobe. It’s cozy and comfortable for cooler days, but the dress silhouette adds a touch of effortless elegance. Pair it with tights and booties for a complete fall look, or wear it on its own for a warmer day. I also love this beige knit dress from lulus. It fits perfectly with this aesthetic. The versatility makes it a must-have!


11 | Sneakers

Fall doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort. A pair of classic white sneakers adds a touch of casual coolness to your soft autumn wardrobe. They pair perfectly with jeans, leggings, or even the midi dress in this capsule for a relaxed and stylish look. Choose a crisp white for a clean and bright touch or go for an ivory shade that stays within the soft autumn color palette.

12 | Knee length Boots

No autumn wardrobe is complete without a pair of knee-length boots. Black leather boots are a timeless choice that complements the warm tones of the soft autumn palette beautifully. They add a touch of sophistication and elevate any outfit, whether you’re pairing them with jeans, a skirt, or a dress. For a less adventurous touch, consider black ankle boots. For more adventure, consider boots in other soft autumn colors like olive green or burgundy.

13| Loafers

The versatility of loafers makes them a valuable addition to your capsule wardrobe, allowing you to transition from work to weekend with ease. Look for a pair in brown leather or a muted autumn color like camel or burgundy. They pair perfectly with tailored pants, jeans, or a midi skirt, creating a variety of looks that are both stylish and work-appropriate.


14| Cozy Scarf

For warmth and style, get a luxurious cashmere scarf in dusty rose, a chunky knit scarf in olive green, or a playful plaid with pops of muted autumn hues. These scarves not only keep you warm but also add a touch of personality and elevate your outfit.

15| Belts

Don’t underestimate the power of a belt! It’s the one thing people add to a bland looking outfit and balance out proportions. A brown leather belt adds a classic touch and cinches your waist for a flattering silhouette. You can also explore belts in other soft autumn colors like muted burgundy or camel to add a pop of color and tie your outfit together.

16| Bag

Your bag is the final touch to your outfit, and a structured bag adds a touch of sophistication. Choose a bag in a classic brown or black leather that complements the warm tones of the soft autumn palette. For a more playful touch, consider a structured bag in a muted autumn color like olive green or a rich burgundy. Look for a size that allows you to carry your essentials without being bulky.

17| Gold jewellery

Gold jewellery is your best friend when it comes to accessorizing for your soft autumn wardrobe. The warm tones of gold beautifully complement the warmth of the soft autumn palette. Statement earrings, or delicate bracelets are key essentials to add a touch of elegance and personality to your look.

18| Baseball Hat

While a baseball hat might seem like an unexpected choice, it can add a touch of casual coolness to your soft autumn wardrobe. This capsule features a hat in a neutral color (beige). This hat will pair perfectly with jeans, leggings, or a casual dress for a laid-back and stylish look.


With these timeless pieces, creating a soft autumn wardrobe should no longer prove too difficult. Happy Shopping!
