The term “capsule wardrobe”—used to describe a pared down selection of clothing, shoes and accessories that can be easily mixed and matched to create ensembles with minimal effort—is nothing new. But it is having a renaissance on social media, where fashion influencers are showing us how to create their own capsules full of versatile styles for fall. And they’re all opting for pieces from Kohl’s that are both affordable and elevated.
Why the sudden resurgence? Blame it on inflation, busy fall schedules or maximizing small closets—capsule wardrobes can save you money, time and space. Even if you love scooping the latest trends (hello, crocheted kitschy sweaters), having a capsule of clothing will help you stay within budget. And this fall, we’re all about looking chic and not overspending.
Here, three savvy fashion influencers break down how to build your own affordable capsule wardrobe, and how to style it so you never run out of outfits.
