Fall Capsule Wardrobe 2017: Bottoms

I mostly wear jeans, but I have also included a pair of leggings and even a skirt this time. I continue to omit dresses as I wear them mostly in the summer as opposed to other seasons. I've chosen 7 pieces for this category. Sorry for the awkward jeans photos--I couldn't get them all in one screenshot.

To sum up: 15 tops, 7 bottoms, 8 outer layers, and 8 pairs of shoes = 38 piece wardrobe.

Jeans

Grey skinny jeans: These jeans were another Nordstrom anniversary sale purchase. They are fast becoming another signature item because I wear them all the time. I never knew how versatile grey jeans could be, but they look awesome with so many different tops. BTW, they were too long for me but came with a raw hem, so i just cut them shorter to fit.
Similar options:


Black high-waist skinny jeans (exact): This was another new purchase, but in my defense I'm using this pair to replace two older pairs that I can now eliminate from my wardrobe. I'm finding myself gravitating towards higher-waisted styles as I get older. They need to be hemmed but I anticipate having that done before the challenge starts.
Similar options:


Distressed boyfriend jeans (exact): On the weekends I tend to wear either leggings or boyfriend jeans. I am all about comfort and these are incredibly soft and easy to wear. A sizing note: I did go down one size and they are still incredibly roomy and loose.
Similar options:


Dark wash bootcut jeans: This was another poshmark find. i did have to hem them but otherwise they fit well. I don't wear bootcut jeans all the time but they remain a classic on occasional rotation.
Similar options:


High-waist dark wash jeans (exact): I'm a little embarrassed to admit how many pairs of jeans I own. These are almost exactly like another pair I wore in my last capsule with the exception that these are high-waist jeans. I'm looking forward to re-assessing after the challenge is over to see if I can live without the 5-or-so other pairs of jeans I own that are incredibly similar to these.

Leggings

Black leggings (exact): I have several pairs of black leggings, but I've chosen only one for the challenge. These are high-waisted "midi" leggings, which means that on me they are full-length rather than cropped or ankle. I plan to wear these a lot on the weekends, and perhaps an occasional Friday at work.

Skirts

Black A-line mini: I did not include a skirt in my last capsule. Depending on weather conditions, I may not wear this much. But it's another nice piece to have just in case. It's a fall-appropriate faux suede fabric, and I love the scalloped bottom. I've put together some really cute outfits in Pureple so hopefully I can wear it at least a few times.
