17 Under-$50 Fall Capsule Wardrobe Items From Walmart to Mix and Match Endlessly
With sustainability being an issue at the forefront of fashion, building a capsule wardrobe with eco-conscious pieces has never been more timely. However, this type of closet investment has often meant sacrificing your budget for quality clothing. But thanks to Walmart's new fall line, good clothing no longer requires a high price tag. With this line, you can shop sustainable wardrobe basics including sweaters, denim, and leggings — all under $50.
To help you simultaneously save time, money, and the earth, Walmart created Free Assembly — a clothing line that aims to help customers of all budgets shop for sustainable clothing that still has an affordable price tag. The goal of the line is to help you to build a solid wardrobe foundation by providing all of the necessary basics including tops, pants, dresses, jackets, and more. Each piece in the line is crafted for you to be able to create a wardrobe where you can mix and match most of your clothing. That way, when you open your closet, you can feel confident that you won't have to spend hours putting outfits together.
On top of providing your wardrobe with all of the essentials, the Free Assembly line is also committed to making the clothing as sustainable as possible throughout the entire production process. The commitment to sustainability includes being made at fair trade and lead-certified facilities that aim to protect both their workers and the environment, using washing techniques that help reduce water usage, and using cotton that is mostly organic without the use of fertilizers and pesticides.
This fall's Free Assembly line is infused with bold, bright colors that capture the rich tones that make fall so beautiful. The line includes warm quilted jackets, stylish denim, beautiful dresses, and so much more. Take a look below to shop these closet essentials that will help you build the perfect capsule wardrobe this fall.
