The Perfect Fall Travel Capsule Wardrobe

What is a travel capsule wardrobe?

Simply put, a travel capsule wardrobe are clothes that will never go out of style. Otherwise known as having a staple closet. You could put these items into a time capsule and if someone opened it decades later, they would still be in style. They usually involve solid colors, classic prints, and simple structure.

Putting together a travel capsule is a daunting task. It challenges you to only pack essential pieces of your wardrobe into a limited space. However, his doesn’t mean that you should compromise on your style!

Creating Your Travel Capsule

Your travel capsule should consist of simple yet sophisticated pieces of clothing that complement each other. Don’t forget, you’ll need clothing, accessories, and footwear. Take a look at your wardrobe and pick all fall-friendly outfits. Plaid, slouchy, or earth-colored items will be what you are looking for. You can always shop for ideal pieces if your wardrobe still lacks the fall style. The trick is to shop for your pieces on wholesale clothing websites. You get the best deals for your wholesale boutique clothing as the prices are comparatively lower.

So let’s create a practical fall travel capsule wardrobe!

Here are the essential pieces that you should include in your travel capsule wardrobe.

1. Tops

Your travel wardrobe capsule should contain the following essential top colors.

  • White
  • Black tee
  • Hunter green
  • Mauve

You can never go wrong with a black or white tee for any day, any outfit kind of looks. Plain tees are easy to style and match. But be sure to add hunter green and mauve into the mix. You will help to compliment the beauty of fall even more with these two colors!

If your travel spans longer than expected, add a black long sleeve tee to your capsule.

2. A Jacket

Nothing screams sophistication more than a well-fitted and cozy jacket. For your travel capsule wardrobe, you’re only going to include one jacket as you need to save on space. So it has to be a staple of a jacket! Include either a solid black, or a brown plaid jacket. These two options have always stood the test of time for fall!

3. A Pair of Leggings

Leggings are great as they can be included with many outfits. Whether that be under a skirt or under a big, slouchy sweatshirt. Leggings are also comfy and cozy, making them ideal for travel. Pack a pair of light tan or black leggings to go in your fall travel capsule wardrobe. And since they are relatively small, you may even consider bringing both colors with you!

4. A Pair of Jeans 

Jeans are probably one the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own! You can dress them up or dress them down with ease. White, blue, or khaki jeans are a great addition to your travel capsule wardrobe. But if you’re low on space, keep it to a pair of distressed blue jeans.

5. Shoes

The shoes make the outfit, so make them good picks! The absolute must styles are a pair of formal heels, a pair of sneakers or other casual, no-heeled shoe, and a pair of boots or booties. The colors you should consider getting are black, brown, and one patterned pair of shoes. This could mean cheetah or leopard print, camo, a shoe with a graphic on it, or even textured like a cowboy boot. Fall involves a lot of solid colors and layers. Having a pair of printed shoes can break up that monotony and also add pizzazz to your outfit!

6. A Sweatshirt

Slouchy sweatshirts are your best friend in fall. You will need:

  • a knitted sweatshirt
  • a colorblock sweatshirt with fall colors in it like brown, rust, or green
  • a thinner, turtleneck sweatshirt

Colors should be up to your personal preference! All of these options should be able to wear under a jacket if it gets a little colder. There is a lot of layering to do in fall!

7. A Scarf

A scarf is another way to add printed or textured colors to your outfit. If everything else is solid colored, even down to your shoes, a scarf can be that last piece of the puzzle for your outfit. Although infinity scarves are the easiest to get on and off, unfortunately they would not make it in a capsule wardrobe. They have come in and out of being in style for awhile. Instead you will want to stick wit the traditional two-ended scarves.

You should get one cream colored scarf, and at least two different pattern-printed scarves.

Disney Style on a Budget: One “Her Universe” Halloween Tee, Three Outfits

I am telling you – the Halloween merch game gets better and better for apparel every year. And this year, Her Universe is bringing the fire! I was recently gifted this adorable Disney Halloween Stripe Collar Crop Top (it comes in Plus sizes HERE), and I couldn’t help but to style it in three different ways!

I am all about giving you the best style advice on how to turn one piece in to many outfits. Especially when you are styling on a budget, because you need to make your purchases count. But it can be tough to do that when it feels like one specific piece can only be styled one way. That can sometimes feel like it’s a waste of money. So hopefully by styling this Her Universe crop top three different ways, you can get some ideas on how to keep wearing it all spooky season long!

I should also note that all of these outfits were put together using items that I already had. Nothing additional was purchased to make this happen! So I encourage you to shop in your own closet first before spending more money on putting an outfit together. But let’s get to styling this cute Disney Halloween tee!

All Black – Simple and Spooky

I styled this striped top by first tying it up just a little bit. Second, I paired it with an all black, pleated skit. I thought about wearing fishnets stockings, but opted to wear knee high black socks instead. Lastly, I wore a pair of my favorite black wedges and voila!

Accent Colors – Ready to Show Halloween Spirit

If I’m being honest, this second outfit is my absolute favorite! I wore the shirt normally with a pair of black high-waisted pants. I then decided to pair it with a cute orange crossbody bag. And lastly, I paired it with my electric purple heels! I have had these heels for years and they are still one of my favorites. There aren’t a lot of opportunities to wear them, but why not wear them during Halloween time, right?

Located in a bright, fall setting, I am showing how to style this crop top from Her Universe for the Halloween season. I matched the colors of the stripes in the shirt to my outfit. I am wearing a pair of black high-waisted pants, an orange crossbody bag, and a pair of electric purple heels. I am posing on a bench so you can easily see the entire outfit.

Posing on a sidewalk in fall, I am showing how the whole outfit came together. The crop top has a white collar, and black, purple, and orange stripes. The orange in the shirt was matched to the bag I have. And the purple of the shirt was matched to my heels. Both of these two pops of color really help to show that the crop top is the center of attention!

Seasonal Colors – Time to “Fall” in Love

With Halloween being in Fall, might as well dress for the season! This outfit is inspired by some of my favorite fall colors. I wore the crop top with just the top button buttoned, a brown cami, and a pair of army green skinny jeans. And every fall season calls for a pair of comfortable booties, so I styled this outfit with my favorite pair.

October is for Halloween - but it's also for fall colors too. So why not combine them both with this outfit featuring the striped crop top from Her Universe! I styled the shirt by only leaving the top button buttoned, a brown cami underneath, and a pair of army green skinny jeans. For a final touch of fall, I styled it with my favorite pair of brown booties.

My white Chanel bag also helps the white collar pop too which makes you notice just how cute the Mickey Halloween pumpkins are on the embroidery!

Feeling a little sassy in my fall outfit with my Halloween crop top to really make the whole outfit pop! In this pose, you can see how the outfit flows together, how the shirt moves off of my side ad back, and how great these skinny jeans fit the fall aesthetic in this park.

I am loving everything about these outfits and I get more and more excited about Halloween with every new product announcement. Which is shocking because I didn’t used to like Halloween or it’s general color aesthetic before. But it turns out that I had to fall in love with a different kind of Halloween. Before, I used to think that Halloween was only for people who liked scary, spooky things. However, we know now that there is the spooky side and the spoopy side! I prefer the side of Halloween that’s more about cute ways to decorate your house, the fun things small shops are putting out, or even just the cute apparel that places like Her Universe are dropping.

This Disney Halloween Stripe Collar Crop Top was so much fun to style and I can’t wait to find more Disney Halloween products that I love too.

A style guide on how to Disney Bound on a budget

Disney Bound on a Budget with One Blue Jumpsuit

Disney Bounding can be quite the expensive hobby. Even for someone like me who regularly shops for new outfits at thrift stores or PoshMark, it still adds up. But I’ll go over how just one blue jumpsuit can be transformed into three different characters for Disney Bounding outfits! blue Disney Bound outfit

You will still need some accent pieces to pull off the look to make sure people know who you are trying to convey. However, this is a great lesson in reusing items to continue bringing a fresh look to your Park days, your style gallery, or your social media! I also gave some great tips on How to Disney Bound on a Budget in my past blog, and one of the biggest ways to save is to not spend!

I should also note that when I bought this jumpsuit off of PoshMark, I honestly thought that I would wear it once and never use it again. But I quickly found that blue is such a common color for so many awesome characters!

Yess from Wreck it Ralph two is such a fashion icon. And with just one blue jumpsuit, a fluffy jacket, and some heart accents, you can make a simple Disney Bound a strong outfit!

Disney Bound #1: Yess from Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet

I originally bought this blue outfit for a Yess Disney Bound, and similar to the big blue floofy jacket, I didn’t think it would find anything other use for it. I paired the outfit with a red Harvey’s bag with some heart bag charms and a pair of heart-shaped blue glasses.

Jacket: Poshmark

Blue Heart Sunglasses: Amazon

Red Fuzzy Bag Chains: Amazon

Red Harvey’s Bag: Poshmark

Disney Bound #2: Captain Marvel

A simple approach to such an iconic female Marvel character! I put on my red leather jacket, a pair of gold wedges, and a gold necklace. Doing a Disney Bound that has as much flare as her suit would have been near impossible, but just imagine me living my best life walking around Avengers Campus!

Red Leather Jacket: Thrift Store

Gold Necklace: Thrift Store

Gold Wedge Heels: Poshmark

A simple Captain Marvel Disney Bound is possible with just a red jacket, a blue jumpsuit, and some gold accents to your outfit. I decided to add a few superhero effects to my picture on my hands and feet to make it look like I am flying through space.
Sadness from Inside Out is probably one of the easiest Disney Bounds to put together. A simple blue jumpsuit outfit, a sweater, and you're done!

Disney Bound #3: Sadness from Inside Out

It’s pretty difficult to find blue pants that aren’t just a pair of blue jeans. Solution: Use a blue jumpsuit and just pop a comfy sweater on over it and BAM! Now you are rocking one comfy Sadness Disney Bound! Honestly though, this was an extremely comfortable outfit and I would have no problem rocking it for a day lounging at home.

White Knit Sweater: Thrift Store
