My Autumn Capsule Wardrobe

If you're a regular reader/viewer of The Anna Edit then you'll know all about capsule wardrobes. I was completely new to the concept but after watching a few of her videos I really started to get into the idea of creating one. As I've mentioned before, I'm not really into fashion. I have my own style and way I like to dress but when it comes to putting outfits together and trying new things, I'm about as experimental as a paper clip - I guess you could say I'm a creature of habit. Over the past 6 months or so I've purchased a few items which are quite different for me and it got me thinking that I should put them into my very first capsule wardrobe. Autumn is my favourite season for fashion and I know I'm going to have a lot of fun creating different outfits using these 5 key pieces. 
Over The Knee Boots
I'm a massive fan of over the knee boots and I love that they can be used for a casual outfit or something a bit dressier. I tend to wear them with skirts and dresses but they also look amazing with jeans. I bought mine from Primark for around £15 and it was honestly one of the best fashion purchases I've ever made! They have a chunky heel which gives me a bit of extra height and they're actually really comfortable. Everyone should own a pair!

An Oversized Jumper
Jumpers have never been my thing but in the colder months, they're a must! I'm not really into thin, tight materials but I love anything oversized as I think it looks more flattering on me as I'm bigger in the boob region. I found this gorgeous jumper in Zara about a month ago and I'm obsessed with it. It has a bow detail at the back and it sits just below my jeans which for me is the perfect length. I got mine in cream but it also comes in red, grey, pink and black so there's something for everyone.

High-Waisted Jeans
When it comes to jeans it's skinnies or nothing for me and I recently decided to jump on the high-waisted bandwagon and I'm actually really enjoying it. Again I think these are a really good option if you've got a bit of a bum and you want something that's going to accentuate it in a nice way and give you a bit more shape. I got mine from New Look and I decided to get them in a standard blue wash to make them more versatile. 

A Ribbed Dress
This was another random Zara find. It's a t-shirt style dress and it has a lovely ribbed fabric which gives it a really nice fit. I'd probably wear this with ankle boots and a leather jacket for a night out when I want to look put together but not over-done. It's also a complete bargain at £12.99!

The Cross Body Bag
Cross body bags are my go-to because they fit all of my necessities and stop me packing things I don't actually need. I found mine in the Accessorize sale about a year and a half ago and it's still going strong. I love that it's neutral with hints of faux snakeskin. It goes with pretty much all of my outfits and it makes me feel like I've made a bit more effort when I actually haven't. 


So there you have my first ever capsule wardrobe! Have you ever thought about making one?

  1. I've never made a capsule wardrobe intentionally but do probably rotate a number of staples unwittingly! I really love the look of the jumper with the bow detail! xx
