Has the fall chill set in for you yet? Whether you’re facing 50-degree mornings or you’re still donning your mini skirts in the hot hot heat, it’s never too early to think about your autumn wardrobe. When creating a seasonal capsule wardrobe, you want tons of options to mix and match. But it’s equally as important to have a few of those head-turning pieces that you love to wear.
This velvet burnout silk skirt from Alice + Olivia is one of those head-turners. The textures look so luxurious, especially when caught by a nice fall breeze. With a color palette of burnt orange, blue, and maroon, I can easily accessorize with denim for a complete look. My trusty denim jacket dresses down this outfit, but the nature of the skirt begs for it to be dressed up.
Alice + Olivia makes a complementary burnout top for a complete head-to-toe look. You can also dress this up with a silk or chiffon top for a stunning minimal look. Want to try something totally unexpected? Mix up your textures with some sequins or feathers on top — perfect options for a gala or evening soiree.
Just because the skirt steals the show doesn’t mean you can leave accessories on the wayside. I’ve played up the rich details in the maxi with a bit of shine in my jewelry. My pom pom ring from J. Crew adds a playful touch to a grown up look, which is important when you’re covered from head to toe. The Charlotte Olympia box clutch is a trendy surprise. It’s very different from my classic vintage bags and sleek accessorizing habits. And it looks fabulous against my orange-croc belt, pulling the burnt hue throughout every element of the outfit.
This season you’ll never find me without my denim jacket and gold rings close by. What pieces are must-haves in your fall capsule wardrobe?
