Your Fall 2021 Capsule Wardrobe Is Here

Your Fall 2021 Capsule Wardrobe Is Here

The last days of summer are almost over, which means we’re bound for colder months (and holiday season!). While there’s still time to make the most of your summer wardrobe, it won’t hurt to start prepping for your fall closet as well. Soon, knitwear and other cozy pieces will take over your shopping carts, and we’re here to help you select the right ones.

Remember that the best wardrobe is a well-curated one. And when it comes to autumnal dressing, classic silhouettes and neutral palettes reign supreme. You can start by planning out the key pieces that you’ll reach for the most and build from there. However, if planning isn’t your thing, Stein Mart has laid out all the essentials you need to create a flawless wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see all the noteworthy pieces to perfect your fall outfits.


The Shacket

If you’ve never encountered this term before, a shacket is basically a combination of a shirt and jacket. It’s thick enough to keep you warm, but light enough to serve as a year-round layering piece. 


How to Wear It: You can wear a shacket with almost anything, almost as versatile as jeans. Try layering it over a breezy tunic or midi dress for a chic, streamlined look. When the temperature drops lower, you can wear it under a coat.

Tailored Bags

We might be layering more, but that doesn’t mean we forgot about accessories! A structured bag elevates an entire look into a more sophisticated and effortless ensemble. Choose boxy totes and other interesting shapes, and stick to shades like tan, cream, off-white, black, and brown.


How to Wear It: Neutral palettes are guaranteed to pair beautifully with anything, so feel free to wear them with all your fall outfits!

Lightweight Coats

Coats are an important part of your fall wardrobe. Lighter coats are more suitable as transitional pieces, but you can always wool it up when it gets colder.


How to Wear It: You can still wear it with a fitted top now, then layer with a chunky sweater later.

Knit Dresses

Despite its casual appeal, a knit dress adds just the right amount of sophistication to a classic style. Midi and maxi lengths are ideal, but shorter dresses are still wearable now.


How to Wear It: Dress it up with heels or knee-high boots, or keep it casual with sneakers and a sleek crossbody bag.

Ankle Boots

Your wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of ankle boots. They come in various iterations, especially in heel height, but a nice pair can easily lift any outfit you throw on. 


How to Wear It: We love to pair ankle boots with jeans or wide-leg pants. This combination exudes a high-street vibe that’s hugely popular during the fall season.

From oversized styles to luxurious fabrics, scarves are a seasonal staple that works for any capsule wardrobe. Functional and stylish, scarves provide warmth while being effortlessly integrated into your outfit. They’re an essential piece for whatever activity you have planned up this autumn—be it wine nights or hanging out by a fire pit in your backyard.


How to Wear It: There are many different ways to wear a scarf. For fall, a simple draped look is the easiest way to spruce up an ensemble.

Chain Necklaces

Basics are great, but a closet full of them might look a little bland (think a steak without seasoning—a nightmare). Throw in a mix of metals to spice things up. Chain necklaces are having a moment, whether gold or silver. They’re a timeless accessory that adds the perfect finishing touch to a knit sweater or trench.


How to Wear It: Chain necklaces are great for layering, and since we’re all about that jazz this season, go ahead and layer it with different styles. Other pieces of jewelry like chokers and long pendants are ideal.
