The Twenty Twenty September Wardrobe Remix

Updated on September 30, 2011

A New 30-Day Wardrobe Challenge

Is it Time for a Wardrobe Remix?

Early fall is on the horizon! Have you created your fall capsule wardrobe yet? Join us for the Twenty Twenty September Wardrobe Remix and road-test your capsule wardrobe for fall.

Wardrobe Remix Details

Here's the deal: 20 items, 20 different outfits, 20 days. Which means, and this is what I am most excited about, you get weekends off! So get started by doing a closet inventory. What do you have? What do you need? Pick out your 20 items and then meet us back here in September!

This wardrobe remix will be hosted at my Dressing Your Truth blog, at my Seasonal Color Analysis for Women of Color blog and at my co-host, Claire O'Mara's blog. Join us here, there and everywhere! :)

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

How to Create an Early Fall Capsule Wardrobe Based on Your Season

Twenty Pieces in Your Best Seasonal Colors

Planning Your Fall Wardrobe Capsule

In our Twenty Twenty Wardrobe Remix Challenge, you need to choose twenty clothing pieces for the month of September. Obviously, you will need a combination of tops, bottoms, dresses and cardigans or jackets but how much you need of each may depend on the weather where you are and the activities likely to come along during the month.

If the weather is transitional, you may want to make your fall capsule wardrobe layer-heavy, so you can take a layer off as it warms up and put it back on when it cools off again. So you might need more cardigans and shirts to mix-and-match than someone who will have all cold all the time! :)

Introducing Seasonal Color Analysis into Your Capsule Wardrobe for Fall

(1) Choose Your Colors: Start with 2-4 colors you might want to play with, such as two neutrals and two accent colors. All four should mix and match well, and they will form the basis of your capsule wardrobe.

(a) Winter: If you're a winter, you might choose taupe or pewter as your neutrals and violet or periwinkle as accent colors.

(b) Spring: As a spring, your neutrals might be cream and cocoa. And you might consider coral and light moss as accent colors.

(c) Summer: For summers, good neutrals would be taupe and cocoa. Lavender and sea green might be good accent colors.

(d) Autumn: If you're an autumn (like me), you might choose rose brown and camel as your neutrals and use rust and pumpkin as your accent colors.

Now, most of us are neutrals, hybrids, a blend of more than one season. And in my own virtual or in-person work with clients, I use a 12-season model for color analysis. So if you know your specific season (you're a spring and you know which spring you are), use that season to choose your accent colors.

If you are not sure which season you are, contact me for virtual color analysis.

(2) Choose Your Twenty Items:Then, think about your lifestyle, your body shape, and the kinds of clothes that look best on you. Divide up your 20 pieces in the way that seems best, but aim for more choices on top than for bottoms, since that is what people notice first. For my own early fall capsule wardrobe, I am planning five cardis, five shirts, five pairs of pants and a combination of dresses and skirts (mostly dresses).

A Fall Capsule Wardrobe Mistake!

I have to confess that I wore the same outfit twice. Yes, I did. I had a moment of insanity and forgot I'd worn it already. 

The only thing different was my choice of accessories: different animal print scarf, and some of my jewelry was different. Will you forgive me, twenty twentyers? :)

Week 5 of the Fall Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

So, you just saw one of the outfits I wore and there was another one I didn't like so much. You can catch a glimpse of it in the collage below. But here are the others from the week...

Twenty Twenty Fall Capsule Wardrobe Challenge Collage

(all twenty-two outfits)

Yep! I miscounted and there were actually twenty-two weekdays in September. Go figure!...


But this collage only has twenty-one and I have no idea which one I left out. So I am adding an "extra" I wore one day to walk to the mailbox and get the mail. I didn't wear it the whole day, but it still counts, right?

My Twenty Twenty Wrap-Up

What a great way to kick off the fall season. It has been fabulous!!! I have had a blast!

I've learned some things about what works and what doesn't, always my goal when I begin a wardrobe challenge. It gave me a great chance to practice what seemed to work well and experiment with replacements for everything that didn't.

I have a couple of "uniforms" and some changes in the way I wear scarves and jewelry. And as the temps cool off, I will continue to experiment. Such a great experience.

And it could easily be done at any time, in any given month, or once a season. So I'm sure I'll do it again and I hope you'll join me!

Be sure to check out Claire's blog to see her reflections on the challenge.

So how did you do? And what was the most difficult thing for you during this challenge? I'd love to know ~ tell me in the comments!

For me, it was getting in some new clothes and not being able to wear them!! I'd see them in the closet and "miss" them :).

How was it for you?

Let me know if you'll be joining us or just say hello.

Thanks for visiting!

You in?
