With fresh minds joining our ASHIFT team, we thought it’s time to do the highly demanded team’s autumn capsule wardrobe!
A capsule wardrobe should be a consistent and stable selection of clothes that you cherish and combine with clothes you already own. This year, we were very inspired by the sweet chill of pumpkin, crisp sunburnt leaves, and opaque sky. Due to ‘normality’ drawing near in society, the ASHIFT team did not only go for casual styles. We created a fine selection of casual and classy styles for the bitter-sweet autumn air. We hope that our team’s autumn capsule wardrobe prepares you well with dazzling sustainable styles to enjoy the magical season! Let’s get into it!

For many, fall is just cold, wet, and muddy. For me, the falling temperature means new opportunities to combine clothes in a new way through layering different basics. Fall is colourful but also a time when people tend to be more melancholy and reflective. My wardrobe is all about expressing strength and confidence. The predominant colour is black with only a few colourful accents like fall foliage. I just love the contrast between the colourful nature and looks with muted colours.
You can casually go to work wearing the Kings of Indigo jeans, the bodysuit and blazer over it and in the evening go to an after-work party. Just take off your blazer, tousle your hair, apply red lipstick, and you’re ready to go! For walks in the woods, I wear a warm knitted dress, tights combined with boots, and a leather jacket. And of course, a jogging suit can not be missing in fall! What better than to spend a day on the couch without a guilty conscience?
My tip for an autumn capsule wardrobe would be: Combine, try and be bold – whatever you feel like!

Autumn has always been a magical season for me. The embrace of the colours of nature is a source of inspiration for my work and for my appearance. The colours I love wearing most are a mixture of warm green, mild blond beige, and of course, black. For my capsule wardrobe, I was inspired by colours, fabrics, and my own taste of how to combine sustainable brands for a warm, and dazzling look in autumn.
My first choice for an elegant and simple look is a DAGMAR blazer and AERON leather jacket, accented with silk and cashmere. This look is great for either a casual night out or a visit to a museum. And maybe leads to midnight conversations about art and literature – who knows! For the latter, I love to wear the DÔEN CECELIA silk dress, a silhouette of a classic French salon dress that reminds me of Désirée, Napoleon’s lover. But, we all know that autumn weather doesn’t always allow a silk dress with a light blazer. Therefore my go-to is a pair of chunky boots and a knit sweater to keep me warm in hard times!

Autumn is one of the best seasons for me. It’s the time where you can wear all your warm clothes and do cosy activities like drinking pumpkin latte or eating pumpkin soup. Anything pumpkin, to be honest!
Over the years, I have established an autumn uniform for myself. An autumn capsule wardrobe needs to fulfil three criteria: functionality, comfort and versatility. One of my favourite things to do is layering. Not only does it prepares you for any weather changes, but it allows you to play around and mix and match basics with eye-catching accents. The foundation is always some good denim trousers or – to change things up – the THINKING MU black and white trousers. Then add some basics like a long sleeve or turtleneck. I suggest investing in some good quality basics if you can! However, if the budget doesn’t allow for it – I know well as a student – there are great affordable options from HONEST BASICS.
Further, you can top the look with anything knitted! It can be a chunky knitted sweater, vests, or the cute knitted checkmate top from PURPLE AND HAZEL. The highlight is an elegant long coat. My tip is to look for vintage jackets because they are usually high-quality and can last you for a long time. You can finish the look with some cute ankle boots and gold jewellery. Now you are ready to conquer any colder days ahead!
