My 30-Piece Fall 2022 Classic Casual Neutral Capsule Wardrobe

|

See how I created my neutral color capsule wardrobe, which includes tops, bottoms, layers and shoes, based on the Simplified Style®: Dressy & Casual Capsule Wardrobe. I’m sharing everything in my own personal capsule wardrobe here on the blog.

For those of you that follow the Classy Yet Trendy blog, you know that I have been using a capsule wardrobe in my closet for several years. I absolutely love using a capsule wardrobe every season, as it helps me get dressed quickly and easily everyday. A capsule wardrobe is a small set of clothes and shoes, which all mix and match, so you can have dozens of outfit combinations ready to wear. Using a capsule wardrobe lets you focus on more important things in your life and takes the stress away from getting dressed.

My full-time job is running Classy Yet Trendy working at home, so I wear casual clothes like jeans, casual pants and casual tops and layers. My job everyday consists of: working at my desk, doing photo sessions of clothes and shoes, moving about creating flatlays for Instagram, etc., so dresses or skirts are not feasible for my work-week lifestyle. On Sundays, I do wear skirts and dresses to church, in addition to wearing outfits from my capsule wardrobe since everyone dresses casual at our church.

Living in Alabama, our Fall season starts late. Our fall weather arrives around early October, so when I am creating my fall capsule, I will include short sleeves, then swap those out with the same styles in long sleeves mid-season when the weather cools down.

I created my all-neutral capsule for my closet based on the women’s Simplified Style®: The Dressy & Casual Collection – A Year-Round Core Closet Essentials Capsule Wardrobe. In Simplified Style®, there are 400+ outfit combinations for the entire year, capsule collections for all seasons, outfit calendars and more! Since I work at home, I am using most of the casual pieces in the capsule.

My Color Palette

In the Fall and Winter season, I tend to select “black” as the base color for my capsule wardrobe, as it coordinates well with cold season clothes and shoes. This is my own personal preference, so if you are referencing this post to create your capsule wardrobe for the Fall season, feel free to use your favorite base color. You can choose brown, camel, charcoal gray, etc.

The capsule wardrobes I share from my own closet every season, are clothes that I have, enjoy wearing and goes along with my personal style. Everyone has their own personal style as well as color preference in clothes, so your clothes and shoes in your capsule may be different from mine. You are welcome to use my capsule wardrobes here on the blog as inspiration for creating your own! While I don’t have a guide of outfits for my own personal capsule wardrobes, feel free to follow along on my Instagram account @classyyettrendy, where I share outfits I wear throughout the season, as well as outfit flatlays and outfit ideas!

If you need a complete wardrobe for the season, then you may enjoy using one of my “ready to wear” capsule wardrobes in other styles available in the Capsule Wardrobe Store!

My 30-Piece FALL 2022 Neutral Capsule Wardrobe - Flatlay

What Is Leanne’s Personal Style?

My first and foremost favorite style is “Classic” with a twist of “French Minimalist“, which includes solid color tees, button-down shirts, casual pants, jeans, cardigans, denim jackets, loafers, mules and flats. What is “classic” style? Classic style includes timeless designs that stand the test of time in mostly solid, neutral colors. I love the simplicity of classic style and I enjoy wearing this style the most. I create the French Minimalist capsule wardrobes every season…see them here!

How Did I Create This Capsule Wardrobe?

I created my own capsule wardrobe for my closet based on my best-selling capsule collection, Simplified Style®: The Dressy & Casual Collection. I also followed the 4 steps in my blog post, How To Start A Capsule Wardrobe: An Easy 4-Step Visual Guide to create my capsule.

What’s In Leanne’s Capsule Wardrobe?

Here’s everything in my Fall 2022 Classic Neutral Capsule Wardrobe. I keep my capsule wardrobe on my wardrobe rack in my Studio Room. If you follow me on Instagram (@classyyettrendy), you will see the wardrobe rack behind me when I take my mirror photos. I had kept my capsule wardrobe in our walk-in closet, but I found it is easier for me to access in in my Studio Room when I am working taking photos for Instagram. That’s what’s great about using a capsule wardrobe as you can hang everything on a clothes rack and put it in any room!

For my Fall 2022 capsule, I included 30 tops, bottoms, layers and shoes.

When I create a capsule wardrobe, I select my tops first, I guess it’s maybe out of habit, but you can also start building your capsule by choosing bottoms or shoes first! To give you a visual of what a capsule wardrobe looks like on a clothes rack, here is what my capsule looks like on my clothes rack in my studio room…

  1. Leanne, I started following you about 6 weeks ago and I’m getting so much inspiration from you. I retired from teaching school in South Florida and moved up here to Birmingham. I’ve been purging all of my ‘teacher clothes’ and lots of bright Lily Pulitzer clothes. Starting a classic neutral capsule is really helping me. I’m excited about creating it. I’ve had difficulty finding lots of shopping options in Birmingham so thank you so much for linking your clothes.

  2. Hi Leanne! I love your capsule ideas, and would like to see color capsules, cool and warm as well. Unfortunately I am not a neutrals gal 🙂

  3. I live on the gulf coast of Florida so I have challenges with fall as well. It was very helpful to me to see how you manage the transition to fall

  4. I live in Indiana where we are hot and humid until at least October! I am the mirror of your taste with a few tweaks. I spend part of my time in court as an attorney. A lot of time at home working & dressed slovenly. No pants at church for me, but a lot of people do dress casual. I’ve gained a lot of weight but want to look & feel better. I love your wardrobes especially this one! I spill food & stain my shirts because I eat in the car at lunch. What do you use to get food or ink out of T-shirts, etc? Absolutely love Alabama !!

  5. Thank you! I’ve been using Shout Advanced Stain Gel (with the attached brush) to remove stains for several years to remove minor stains, haven’t used it on ink stains though.

  6. Great post, Leanne! One question: have the Simplified Style shopping links been updated since the version I purchased in 2020? Thanks!

  7. Thank you for sharing your neutral wardrobe. I like your style!

    Would you share (or sell) an outfit plan as you do with your capsule wardrobes? That feature is extremely helpful for this busy momma!

  8. Hi Leanne! I’ve been following you for a year now and have also got my sister hooked! My 21-year-old daughter would also LOVE to try a capsule wardrobe, but is wondering if you could put together something younger, for college girls? Thanks!
