As you know we're big fans of a capsule wardrobe, where you curate an edit of clothes that can all be styled together easily. It’s an approach we like to keep in mind when building and shopping for the whole of our wardrobe, but it is also something we review and edit every season. We also find this approach works well for different sections of your wardrobe, like a workwear capsule, or even a pregnancy capsule.
Because everything goes with each other, the idea of getting dressed in the morning seems a whole lot easier, and whole less daunting. It also means we’re more considered with our purchasing habits, and avoid impulse buying as we have a closet of pieces that we can easily keep stock of and understand when and where gaps need to be filled.
As the temperature drops we’re curating our winter capsule wardrobe which will take us through the next few months.
Get your checklist ready, here are our winter wardrobe essentials to build out your winter capsule wardrobe.
Tailored Black Trousers
A true wardrobe hero, black trousers get a work out all year round but especially in the winter months. Dress them up with heels for dinner or wear them with a classic loafer to work.

A Long Sleeve Top
An essential layering piece during the winter months. We like to invest in good quality and natural fabrications that are breathable but also keep us warm. We always make sure that our layering pieces can also be worn on their own to make sure all our capsule wardrobe essentials are hardworking pieces.
A White Button Up Shirt
A Black Midi-Dress
A black midi-dress is a staple in our capsule wardrobe. In the winter months we rely on this classic as a layering piece underneath a tailored blazer or coat for evenings out or days when we want to forego pants!
A Tailored Blazer
Our go-to for when we want to feel put together. Wear it over a classic t-shirt or long sleeve top and style it more casually with jeans or more formal with a black trouser.
A Hero Coat
A true winter wardrobe hero, nothing completes a look like the perfect coat. You can’t go past a black, slightly oversized black wool coat as a winter wardrobe essential.
Black Ankle Boots
If you opt for a classic black ankle boot, you’ll be sure to hold onto them for years. They go with quite literally everything in our winter wardrobe, and if you invest in the right pair they can really elevate an otherwise casual outfit. Treat them well and make sure you’re giving them a good buff and polish when you bring them out every season.
This is a no brainer for keeping our capsule wardrobes interesting. We love to add a classic leather belt to a winter outfit to add a touch of hardware and help break up an outfit.
