The crisp air, the crunch of the leaves- fall is officially here! With a new season comes a new opportunity to hit refresh on your wardrobe, get rid of the pieces you haven’t been wearing and make sure you own the pieces you should be wearing! We know, we know – finding the right pieces for a plus size fall wardrobe can be daunting. So, to make the process simple & seamless, we put together a plus size wardrobe capsule collection with the top 15 pieces we’ll be shopping for this fall/winter season. You may have some, you may have none but these pieces are what everyone is talking about!

Not sure how to wear the pieces? Don’t worry, check back this Friday and we’ll show you how we put together 16 different fall-fabulous looks to get you started!

When purchasing your capsule pieces, ask yourself a few questions:

1. Will this piece have longevity in my wardrobe?

2. Can the piece be paired with other items that I already own?

3. Will my purchase help me create stylish looks that reflect my fashion personality?

Happy shopping…

1. A surprisingly versatile faux fur

Think animal print is just for accessories, think again. Start seeing it as a basic color & voila, versatile outerwear.

7. Menswear Trouser

Houndstooth, check, pinstripe, a muted color- choose your detail and be sure the fit is spot on menswear inspired. It’s all about a laid-back, Annie -Hall vibe when it comes to these pants. Just be sure the fit is right , and if it’s not tailor them!

8. Classic, Basic Kicks

No frills, all function. Your go-to sneaker for fall should be stripped of everything. Keep them simple & pair with everything.

9. Leisure Joggers (yes, really)

Sweatpants? We don’t think so. Introducing, joggers, the older-more sophisticated cousin to the sweatpant. Perfect for looking polished but feeling comfy.

10. Top handle tote

Ladylike enough for work, but w/ a long strap perfect for a night out. Find one that is  polished but contemporary that  will work for seasons to come. Looking for an extra something? Grab a pop of color or standout print.

11. The cozy sweater

A new version of the traditional sweater; slightly oversized w/ a delicate touch. Cozy enough for movie night but just polished enough for casual Friday at the office.

12. The everyday bootie

Low maintenance, low-heeled for comfort and in a color that will work with your entire wardrobe. The casual ankle bootie is a wardrobe must have. Find one that suits your style, add tights, wear w/ pants, a skirt – the options are endless.

13. The Sweater dress

There’s nothing not to like about the sweater dress. A cozy option that is fashionable and doesn’t involve tailored pants for the office? Yes please. Go luxe w/ a cashmere option.

14. Ornate Jewelry

Sparkly, shiny, statement making jewelry is a must for fall/winter. How else will you spice up that leggings/sweater combo? Choose one that will work for day-night ensembles  & bring you right into holiday.

15. An Easy Tunic

The best quick fix to those “I don’t know what to wear” days. An easy tunic works with everything from joggers and sneakers to work pants & a blazer!
