Easily paired separates, minimalist styles, and neutral tones are the name of the game this fall. As the weather gets colder and schedules get busier, incorporating a few staple items into your wardrobe becomes a must. This fall is all about easy dressing and the capsule wardrobe mentality, which allows for a seamless transition from warmer months to the autumnal chill. With neutrals, you can wake up every morning and mix and match to your leisure, without the need for much styling at all. Pair an off-white crewneck and charcoal suit pants to ensure looking sharp and dapper in a matter of minutes. 

The transition between seasons is always bittersweet, but this fall has a particular edge of excitement and the need to place extra care into dressing—in-person interactions. So as not to become too overwhelmed with the constant rigamarole that is the fall, investing in a few classic neutrals allows you to create a sort of capsule wardrobe. This wardrobe structure means having a handful of stylish separates that can easily be worn with each other, and pairs perfectly to the neutral palette. Alrighty then, it has officially come time to place the chino shorts of summer’s past back into your drawer and make the trade for this fall’s impossibly cool neutral counterparts.
