When it comes to our winter capsule wardrobe, we like to keep it simple. Versatile, high-quality separates that we can mix-and-match for any occasion. It’s because of this approach that we find ourselves coming back to 5 main essentials:
A Black Ankle Boot
A good pair of boots will last you years and their versatility makes it an easy choice for winter outfitting. If you are looking to invest in your perfect pair, we wrote an article on the 3 Details To Look For When Investing in a Black Ankle Boot.
A Knit Jumper
Essential for this time of year, a knit jumper is a no brainer when it comes to winter layering. Before investing in a style, we recommend considering the fabrication that will work best for the climate you live in as well as how other items in your wardrobe will layer with it. Do you have more heavy wool coats? If so, you might opt for a cotton knit or open weave jumper. If you gravitate towards a trench coat, you might consider a wool jumper instead.
A Pair of Classic Jeans
While we love wearing denim year round, there’s nothing like a good pair of jeans in winter to really embrace the cooler temperatures. Opt for timeless cuts in classic colours, blue, black and white.
A Wool Coat
A timeless and effortless coat should be high on your list of wardrobe investments this winter. The perfect outerwear layer, it deserves just as much love as the outfit underneath (especially if it’s going to cover it up for most of the day!). This year, we’re loving the Egon Coat from Harris Tapper which comes in a timeless shade of black and classic grey. We’ll be layering it over our favourite long sleeve tops and wool trousers.
A Long Sleeve Top
The ultimate base layer, a long sleeve top is the ideal foundational layer for winter dressing. Whether you opt for a cotton rib or a lightweight wool fabrication, they are sure to be on high-rotation in your wardrobe. We can’t stop wearing the Renata from Marle and the Long Sleeve Magyar Tee from Matteau. Two different but equally versatile styles to mix-and-match with your winter capsule.
