How to shop your closet fall 2022. I know, I know, it’s about a hundred degrees outside, your air conditioning is cranking, and I am showing you pictures of boots, sweaters, and jackets. Well, I am doing this because the stores are starting to stock fall merchandise, and in doing so, they are cranking up the air conditioning, and as soon as you walk into one, you will feel the chill and desire to purchase something cozy you can’t wear for another three months. Yes, it’s that time of year already!
If you shop your closet for fall before you walk into a store and get trapped into shopping for something you already own, you will be empowered to tell yourself, you’re already set in that department! Love that!

OK, let’s get down to business. Fall is approaching, and your closet still holds everything you love from last fall. The first thing to do is look at your fall clothing and anything that looks like it has unremovable stains, damage, bad color fading, or just never quite fit right, should either be donated or sold on consignment. This will create some space in your closet. Love!
Secondly, look at your classic pieces. This will be blazers, layering tee’s, jeans, trousers, and anything else that is a classic to you. If you still love them, fabulous! Make sure you are all set in this department. Blazers, both professional and tweed, are still hot and on trend. Keep those in the front of your closet. Trousers can be skinny, wide leg, or classic cut for fall 2022.
For jeans, be aware the trends are changing. Fall 2022 denim trends include flares, bootcut, wide leg, very wide leg, drown yourself in wide leg, cropped, and classic cut. Although I am showing skinny jeans in these photos, skinny jeans are no longer on trend, but they are a classic. I would recommend keeping them as they are great for throwing on and they always look good, but if you want to be trendy, they should move behind your other denim styles in your closet. If you have enough other styles in denim, you can store your skinny jeans. Or, if you are short like me and wide leg pants make you look like a potato sack, keep rocking those skinnies. I plan to!
Third, look for colors. You can use this fall color trend chart to help you decide what to move forward in your closet, and what to store. Also, any shade of green is hot for fall as well as bright pink. There is a Barbie movie coming out in the near future and people are going crazy for what’s being dubbed “Barbiecore.” This is streetwear with Barbie flair. Think pink, and ask yourself, “Would Barbie wear this?”
Fourth, your handbag collection! Work totes are always on trend, and for fall 2022, look for vintage bags being hot, bucket bags, small bags, box bags, small totes, hobos, anything metallic, and shoulder bags. Sorry guys, the cross-body bag is on its way out. You can still wear your cross-body bags, just adjust the strap and wear it over your shoulder. There isn’t an on-trend strap length, so wearing a cross body bag as a shoulder bag could make it long, that’s OK. It’s very 1970s to wear a long shoulder strap and since denim has a 1970s vibe, this works! Groovy.
Fifth, jewelry is trending towards understated and classic. This means hoops and anything not too crazy will work. Also, your logo belt is still relevant and cozy scarves will return as we inch toward winter.
Lastly, let’s chat footwear! Western boots and anything golden is hotter than hot this fall season. Lug soles are still relevant, and toes are trending back to being pointed; but your square toes are still good! Mary Janes are trending upward, so if you have a pair from back in the day, bring them forward in your closet. If not, these are a fun alternative to pumps or block heel loafers. Look for a block heel on your Mary Janes and a neutral color.
Everything shown in these fall outfit idea photos will be in my fall capsule. The black tweed blazer is from last year, but still on store shelves and hot for fall. The two pairs of boots are new, and the cozy sweater is new. My sweater from last fall didn’t make it, sadly. The jeans are from my closet and the belt is from last fall too. The hoops are a few years old, and they are classic; also, still on store shelves.
If you shop your closet for fall 2022, you will find you don’t need to buy as much as you thought for the new season. This will save money and that is always a good thing! Love!
