Happy Friday! Since yesterday was a big reveal here on the blog {see what I’m talking about here, if you missed it} Thursday’s fashion post was moved to today. We’re diving back into the Fall Capsule Wardrobe with another staple item, a classic mini skirt. While mini skirts are obviously huge in the spring + summer seasons, they’re also great for fall! With warmer temps they can be worn on their own and come cooler days, they can easily be paired with tights. 

So much like Tuesday’s post, I’m sharing three ways to style the item. From casual to slightly casual to a little more put together. All looks are easy combinations to put together with other items in the Fall Capsule Wardrobe

look 1: zip up hoodie | tee shirt | backpack | sneakers | c/o watch | cuff | sunglasses 

look 2: utility jacket | tee shirt | c/o scarf | c/o handbag | flats | c/o earrings 

look 3: sweater blazer | tee shirt | c/o scarf | c/o handbag | flatsc/o earrings 

Look one is obviously the most casual. Pairing the classic mini skirt with sneakers gives the look a playful vibe. While the zip up hoodie plays into the casual feel, it also provides the warmth need for fall days. A backpack is a great addition when running errands, exploring a new city, or when you just need to carry a lot! 

Look two is a little more “dressed up” thanks to the utility jacket, classic ballet flats {these are truly the comfiest}, and chic tote. To add a little extra warmth, add your favorite gingham/plaid scarf. Always a great go to item! This combination is perfect for weekend living or mid-week drinks. 

Look three is the most polished. While the only difference is the sweater blazer in place of the utility jacket. The look really changes and comes off a little more chic. I would say this combination is completely office appropriate. 

Which look is your favorite? Comment below and cast your vote!

  10. Really great looks for a wardrobe capsule. My 2 favs are the hoodie and sweater blazer styles. That scarf is perfect for adding an extra touch. Thanks for sharing.
