If you follow the Tiny Closet, Tons of Style® blog or the TCTS private facebook group, you know that I'm throwing color to the wind for my upcoming Fall 2017 capsule wardrobe. I've dubbed the look "Minimalist Ath-Classic," an intentionally paired down mash up of modern/classic staples, subtle accessories and sporty accents in a muted palette.
Minimalist Street Style Fall 2017 | 5 Key Pieces
After extensive Pinterest trolling, I've nailed down 5 key additions to my Fall 2017 capsule sure to inspire an under-styled, classic meets athleisure aesthetic.
Fall 2017 Minimalist Essential #1: Mules
You can thank Gucci for the return of the mule loafer. For my minimalist capsule I went streamlined vs Gucci fur lined and bought The Day Mule by Everlane. A great purchase as these shoes are already earning raves from the gals in the TCTS group.
Fall 2017 Minimalist Essential #2: Boy Blazer
The blazer is a minimal meets classic essential. There are several in my wardrobe already, like this double breasted grey pinstripe number I scored at Goodwill nearly 10 years ago. If you are in the market for a blazer, try this affordable option by LOFT or invest in this timeless style by Acne Studios.
Fall 2017 Minimalist Essential #3: Cropped Sweater
As a nearly 40 year old mother of two, I thought my crop top days were over - until the layering light bulb went off. I plan to throw my white cropped sweater over everything this fall. Into this look? Try this style by Free People.
Fall 2017 Minimalist Essential #4: Modern Pant
At first I didn't know if these peg leg, sash-tie, high waist pants screamed "Nailed It!" or "Hammer Time!" Now I'm busting out the running man in celebration. Cop the '90s vibe with this pair by Express.
Fall 2017 Minimalist Essential #5: Athleisure Element
For this very athleisure capsule I am adding two new pairs of sneakers to rotate with the black Vans Old Skools from my Winter 2016/17 capsule. I already ordered my signature New Balance 696 in grey but the hunt continues for the perfect all white sneaker. I'm torn between aspiration and nostalgia with this very chic pair by Jimmy Choo or these very throwback Reebok Classics. Thoughts?
