Keep your eye rolls to a minimum when I say this, but it’s nearly fall: F-A-L-L. Simply the best season of all, if you ask me. Yes, currently my sweaty thighs tell me a different story of seasons, but you’re lying if you haven’t been looking longingly back and forth from your ankle boots to the calendar, waiting for the perfect moment to bring them out.
If you’re anything like me, you may have already started to pull your fall clothing forward from the back of the closet. There they are in all their glory. Your favorite sweaters. That coat you saved all of September for. Those dark denim skinny jeans that you lived in. (Quite possibly a little more snug this year, but let’s not talk about that.) And then, hanging among your fashion gems, you see them…
NO. WHEN DID I BUY THAT? How did I think that looked good? Did I even wear that? Answer: Yes, one time, and it’s been hanging in your closet ever since.
Why do we do this to ourselves?! We buy clothing simply because it’s on sale or because it’s cheap, and we end up with closets flanked by excess items we don’t love. This year, I am saying no more. Enter the capsule wardrobe.
If you haven’t heard of a capsule wardrobe, you likely don’t follow any bloggers on Instagram, so let me break it down for you:
Simply put, it’s a mini-wardrobe made up of versatile pieces that you completely LOVE to wear. It consists of tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, and shoes that you rotate out every few months. By curating the smaller wardrobe, you get more creative with what you have and stop flipping through those impulse pieces you don’t even wear. It eliminates the “I have nothing to wear in my completely full closet” conundrum while also saving you money. Suddenly, your entire wardrobe is nothing but old favorites.
We want to help you build your own capsule wardrobe with one of the brands who gets it right: Splendid. If you’ve never had the luxury of lounging in one of their oh-so-soft T-shirts, or experienced the perfect fit you’ll get from their denim, it’s time for a change. Splendid is offering one of our lucky readers $1,000 to build their own fall capsule wardrobe. See below for rules and entry.
If you can’t wait for the winner to be announced, we’ve compiled the perfect fall capsule wardrobe from Splendid. Everyone will be wondering how you managed to raid Gigi Hadid’s closet.
