Have you been following our Fall 2023 trends articles? Look at our round-ups of Fall 2023 trends, Fall colors, shoes, and accessories if you haven’t already checked them out. So, how do you put these trends together? That’s where our Fall 2023 capsule comes in. Look below for all of the outfits for Fall 2023 that you need, no matter the occasion.

If you’ve been following 40+ Style for a while, you’ll know we’re a big fan of creating a capsule wardrobe. Putting together a capsule, especially for each new season, is a great way to make sure you have clothes, shoes and accessories that can easily be mixed and matched with each other to solve your “I don’t have anything to wear today” conundrum.

2023 fall capsule wardrobe

Let’s move on to our Fall capsule. Below, you’ll find four tops, sweaters, jackets, pants, dresses, and shoe options to create countless choices. Plus, of course, accessories to finish off your outfits.


When it comes to your tops, a silk shirt is the perfect choice to dress up or down. Also, look out for t-shirts with longer sleeves, graphic prints, and vest tops for layering. When creating your capsule wardrobe, opt for different colors and patterns to give your looks lots of variety.

If the weather is cooling down where you are, you’ll need to add some knitwear. Choose sweaters and cardigans with a variety of neck styles so you have different choices. Look for luxurious fabrics like cashmere, and be inspired by lovely Fall colors. Keep in mind your body shape. For example, a v-neck is super flattering for most figures, while higher necks look good if you have a long neck and an athletic figure. Wider necklines like boatnecks are great for balancing out wider hips if you’re a pear shape.

jackets and coats

For transitional seasons like Spring and Fall, you will generally want to choose coats that offer some warmth and protection from the elements without being too bulky. Choose blazers, moto jackets, and trench coats. Rather than a black leather jacket, look out for one in a beautiful Fall shade like burgundy, mustard or terracotta.

Pants and jeans

Do you tend to wear more pants and jeans, rather than skirts when the weather cools down? Fall is a great time to add tactile fabrics like leather and coated denim. Also, look for interesting prints and Autumn shades. You can choose a mixture of longer leg styles and cropped lengths, as you can always add booties if your ankles are getting cold!

Dresses and skirts

For your Fall dresses, choose styles with longer sleeves. Wrap dresses are always flattering. Shorter lengths can be worn with leggings or pants. Shirt dresses are versatile as you can wear them with or without a belt to create different silhouettes or open as a duster jacket. We also love asymmetric shapes, like the hemline on the COS pinstriped skirt (below).

Shoes and boots

Switch your sandals for sneakers and booties when Summer turns to Fall. Choose a combination of flat and heeled styles to give you plenty of options for casual or dressy days. Shoe boots like the NYDJ block heels (below) that combine the look of boots and sandals are great for transitional weather, and they add a stylish edge to your outfits.
