Jennifer Sattler is an expert in putting together capsule wardrobes.

In fact, we recently tapped Sattler to give intel on the edited assortment of items that make up her classic capsule wardrobe. Next up, she's offering up insights into the pieces that define her fall capsule wardrobe—particularly for the transitional weather ahead.

"Make a fall capsule wardrobe with eight fashion-forward pieces you can mix and match to wear when it's warm but have all the feels of fall," she said. "Take these ageless outfits from work to the weekend."

On Sattler: Rag & Bone vest

"This is the most fashionable piece in the fall capsule. Choose a tailored style you can wear as a top too. A neutral solid-color vest is the easiest to mix and match, but one that's made to match your print blazer is fun too." — Sattler

3. White Blouse

"Can you wear white after Labor Day? Yes! As we transition into fall, you can still wear white tops like the ones in this capsule. If you want to wear them with white bottoms, switch your shoes to boots and add lots of textured layers." — Sattler

4. Bootcut Jeans
