Fall Fashion: Exploring Capsule Dressing with Jigsaw London

With every new season comes a new opportunity to explore your style and evaluate your wardrobe.  Autumn is one of our favorite seasons at Canvas to experiment with new trends and revisit classic "Fall" looks. There is something about the mix of layering, cozy sweaters and rich fabrics that works well with San Francisco's climate.

Megan and I had such a great time experimenting with capsule dressing this summer that we've decided to continue for fall.  We'll be updating you all on what items we'll be wearing this fall, but first we thought it would be fun to create a small starter Fall capsule to illustrate how easy it is build a mix and match wardrobe of your own. 

We've long been a fans of Jigsaw London and their collection this fall is one of the best I've seen in years.  The mix of coordinating prints, unified color palettes and updated classic silhouettes made outfitting almost too easy. The key is picking 2-3 contemporary trend or "statement" items that you love and adding classic coordinates in your color palette of choice around them. 

For example Megan and instantly gravitated to their poncho inspired striped sweater, bold silk dress and oversized grey cardigan. All of these items pair with many pieces to create unique looks.  Below are all the items we selected (less the black flats that were the model's own, here is a link to a fun alternative).
