Including easy-to-style button-downs and sweater dresses.
Fall officially starts at the end of this week, so naturally, I'm already thinking about what pieces I need to transition my wardrobe. And what better way to do so than by building a fall capsule wardrobe that’s both versatile and budget-friendly? Knowing where to start when building out a seasonal capsule can be overwhelming, but I find the easiest pieces to shop for are tops and dresses.
Don’t know where to start? Thankfully, Amazon has made all of our lives easier by curating a storefront of minimalist staples from which you can choose all your fall non-negotiables. My personal selections include button-down tops and dresses you can wear now and then layer with sweaters and cardigans on cooler evenings. And for the inevitable frostier days when you need those warmer pieces, I’m opting for a few long-sleeved tops and sweater dresses. Below, shop all my fall capsule picks for under $50.
Shop Editor-Approved Amazon Fall Picks:
Amazon Essentials Short-Sleeve Maxi Dress, $26 (Originally $27)
U.S. Polo Assn. Long Sleeve Oxford Dress
My go-to summer-to-fall staple is a button-up dress. It's breezy enough that you won’t overheat while it’s warm, but it also makes for a great base layer that you can pair with a sweater, tights, and knee-high boots to warm the look up. That's why the U.S. Polo Assn. Long Sleeve Oxford Dress would make a great addition to any fall capsule wardrobe.
The button-down dress comes in green, white, blue, pink, and purple and sizes S through XL. It features a button closure, a functional tie at the waist, long sleeves, and the brand’s logo on the upper left side of the dress. It has a classic silhouette that fits closer to the body and falls right above the knees.
The Drop Tessa Polo Jersey Midi Sweater Dress
As temperatures begin to drop, I’m wearing all things comfy-chic. There is nothing like slipping into a cozy sweater dress that feels like you're bundled up in a warm blanket — while also looking fall-ready. I’m a bit picky with the type of sweater dresses I go for, but this polo-style midi dress from The Drop has caught my eye; I’m officially planning the perfect apple-picking outfit around this closet must-have.
The short-sleeve sweater dress comes in green, navy, and tan with accented stripes in white or brown on the sleeve, and sizes XXS through 5XL. It features a collared V-neckline, and a side seam split at the hem for ease when walking. The silhouette falls snuggly around the body and stops right at mid-calf.
The Drop Sydney Short-Sleeve Cropped Crewneck T-Shirt
The Drop’s Cropped Crewneck T-Shirt is a must-have basic that can be worn all year round. The shirt is boxy and oversized enough that it can be layered over a long-sleeve top, or it can just be worn on its own. As a self-proclaimed minimalist, a versatile tee is essential for your fall capsule wardrobe since it can mix and match effortlessly with other pieces you already own.
The crew neck tee comes in 12 solid colors and stripes, such as black, white, green, and yellow, and sizes XXS through 5XL. It has a roomy fit and is cropped at the natural waist.
