With the weather starting to cool down (it was 61F this morning) and the stores filled with gorgeous fall colors, the only thing on my mind right now is dressing for fall. But what if my budget hasn’t caught up yet and I don’t have any money to spend on new clothes for fall? No worries, because I can transition my wardrobe for fall without spending a single penny. In fact, I don’t even have to cross over into my fall capsule wardrobe to start wearing outfits for fall.
The 3 outfits at the top of this post contain pieces from only my summer capsule wardrobe and they all have a nod to the fall season.
What did I do to transition these summer clothes for fall?
As we take a closer look at each outfit, I want you to look for 2 common features.
Outfit #1. First up is one of my favorite pieces in my summer capsule wardrobe, the green chinos. I’ve been pairing these chinos with white and cream. For fall I combined them with black and blue denim.
Outfit #2. For this look I’ve taken a staple item in most summer wardrobe, white denim jeans, and paired them with an olive blazer. Finishing off this fall look is a black short sleeve t-shirt and black pointy toe flats.
Outfit #3. The final look is for a business casual setting. I’m wearing a column of black topped off with a tan blazer.
As you can see, these outfits all have 2 things in common:
- Neutral colors (black, white, blue denim, olive, tan, and green)
- Black for the top or bottom (or both)
If you don’t have any money to spend on fall clothes, simply pair up all the neutrals that you have in your wardrobe to create your outfit. Dressing in head-to-toe neutrals allows you to create outfits that will transition beautifully into the fall season without spending a single penny.
