Fall 2021 Slow Fashion Inspiration
With so much up in the air with Covid-19, thinking about fall fashion feels a bit silly. But I learned last year that it’s worthwhile to put together a slow fashion inspiration post. Because, even if I have nowhere important to be, brands work hard this time of year to make us want things.
By narrowing it down and creating a vision board, I can limit those wants within myself.
I am also trying to build a sense of cautious optimism. As of today, my seminary still plans to have in-person classes. And even with the Delta variant, I feel safe enough seeing other vaccinated people with the proper masking and distance.
The world isn’t normal by any means, but we are adapting. I certainly value opportunities for in-person friendship more than ever before.
New Haven is a true, four-season city. Even though it’s in New England, the coastline warms things up. Early fall is mild. It’s the perfect time for lightweight boots and cardigans.
- Colors: Light Pink, Marigold Yellow, Navy, Red, Black, Faded Blue
- Textures: Fuzzy, Woven, Denim, Leather
- Elements: Crew Neck Sweaters, Light Wash & Dark Wash Straight Leg and Loose Denim, Doc Martens, White Sneakers
- Prints: Plaid/Gingham, Stripes
Now that I’ve done that analysis, I’ll compare it to my spring capsule post here. The color palette is nearly identical to that post and my more recent one. The silhouettes are compatible or consistent, too.
Comparing to previous seasons helps me understand what is merely aspirational versus what is consistent in my personal style. That way I’m not out here trying to buy random stuff I won’t wear.
- Tiger Tee
- Rosalind Puff Sleeve Tee
- Rib Knit Tees

What I Already Have + What I’d Like to Buy
I already have most of these items, at least some version of them. I’d like to buy the Dr. Martens oxfords and a couple of thermals in saturated colors.
As it turns out, I’ve been inadvertently building out my fall wardrobe throughout this pandemic year!
I’m in the best (style) shape ever going into this season. So I can sit back and ignore all of those promotional emails.
