My Fall Wardrobe Challenge: Exact 37 Pieces I Will Be Using

Crystalin Marie's Fall Wardrobe Challenge

It’s finally here! My Fall Wardrobe Challenge is officially starting and I’m sharing all the pieces I’ll be using. It was a lot harder to narrow down my choices, although 35+ pieces sounds like plenty. I’ll let you in on a little secret, it’s actually not a lot after you include shoes, bags, and scarves. This is my first time ever doing anything like this, so I don’t even know if what I chose all works together. I think that’s the hardest part.

So, why a fall wardrobe challenge? I gravitate toward the same pieces all the time. I like to mix and match my neutral wardrobe and based on your response, I do this well. I also have some super power to make basics look elevated and not boring (at least that’s what you guys tell me). I’ve been getting so many questions asking for a post on closet staples as well. Fall is my favorite time of year when it comes to fashion and I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to create as many looks as possible with the same 37 pieces (all for the most part closet staples). I’m not going to limit myself to just these pieces in my day to day and on Instagram and Stories because I want to be able to share awesome finds with you guys, etc., but this is something I will be working on and then I’ll share a final post with all my looks in a month or so. I think this will help you guys find your closet staples as well as provide inspiration for the upcoming fall season. I’ll be posting outfits throughout the process on Instagram and Stories and using the hashtag #CMFallWardrobeChallenge. If you’re intersted in participating (meaning you would create your own outfits with the pieces I’ve listed (similar)), please post your outfits with this hashtag, so everyone can see each other’s outfits. I have a feeling you guys have a variation of the same pieces already in your closet. Lets have fun with this!
