While the leaves are falling off the trees and the days are getting shorter, the cold is becoming an everyday certainty again. The energy levels are lower and putting a lot of effort in an outfit is not a priority because "it's going to be covered with a sweater anyway". But who said basics should be boring? This fall is the perfect opportunity to build your dream capsule wardrobe. Here are 7 must-have items for the ultimate capsule.
