Hi, I'm Kim


Every girl needs a fall capsule wardrobe. When you have the basics down, creating an outfit from scratch is easy. In celebration of fall, I’ve rounded up 15 sustainable fall wardrobe essentials to add to your wardrobe––white t-shirts, cozy sweaters, and leather jackets included.

Happy Shopping!


Sustainable Fall Wardrobe Essentials

1. Basic T-Shirts

We’re all on the search for the perfect white t-shirt. Lucky for you, I’ve rounded a few up. I HIGHLY recommend the one made by Mott & Bow. You can buy a 3-pack for $95. A more affordable option is Everlane’s 3-Pack Organic Cotton Crew for $60. Additionally, stock up on t-shirts in stripe and black to serve as the “building blocks” of your fall wardrobe.


2. Oversized Button-Down Shirts

Perfectly clean and crisp. These oversized button-down shirts are so chic! Wear with jeans, a mini skirt, or trousers for the perfect pairing. Style yours with a French tuck. Sustainable brands include Pact, Faherty, and ABLE.


3. Mid-Wash & White Denim

Embrace the season with mid-wash and white denim. Two versatile staples that can be dressed up or down. Sustainable brands we’re loving? Everlane, Levi’s, and Reformation.


4. Cozy Sweaters

Okay, cozy sweaters are by FAR my favorite part of fall. You’ll want to stick to layerable, textured sweaters. Ideally, in white, grey, striped, and black, so you can mix and match with your outer layers.


5. Beige & Black Cardigans

These cardigans in beige and black are perfect for layering. You won’t want to pass up on these styles. They’re oh-so-warm and versatile.


6. Silk Skirts

Add a touch of elegance to your fall wardrobe with silk skirts. Black is a staple color! Pair with your favorite t-shirt, button-up, oversized sweater, blazer, or bra top.


7. Trousers

Perfect for work or daily errands. Elevate your fall fashion game with trousers in black, white, beige, and leather. I’m loving Everlane’s Trousers right now––an essential in any girl’s wardrobe.


8. Neutral & Black Blazers

Elevate your fall fashion with neutral and black blazers––versatile pieces that can effortlessly transition from day to night. I adore Reformation’s Winston Blazer.


9. Long Trench Coats

Make a statement with a long trench coat, an iconic outerwear piece that combines style and function. Pair your trench coat with a cashmere sweater and mid-wash denim, and add a pair of Adidas Sambas sneakers for the perfect laid-back look.


10. Camel Coat

Camel coats are timeless. Whether you prefer a belted wrap or a military-inspired beige trench, elevate your fall outerwear game with one of the following coats.


11. Bomber Jackets

You can’t go wrong with a black bomber, a crisp white tee, and black jeans.


12. Leather Jacket

Everyone agrees: leather jackets are one of the most versatile fall staples! These leather jackets seamlessly layer over wool sweaters or long-sleeve shirts, and can be the perfect finishing touch to your favorite little black dress.


13. Boots

Your fall look isn’t complete without boots, whether ankle boots or knee-high.


14. Tennis Shoes

Tennis shoes are perfect for casual fall looks and active days. They’re staples you’ll wear again and again.


15. Cross-Body Bags

Look great on the go with cross-body bags, whether it’s a sling, an oversized tote bag, or a small clutch. The following styles are perfect for keeping your essentials close at hand.
