Winter Capsule Wardrobe

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

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.

Jeans

An obvious starting point for any seasonal capsule wardrobe is a classic pair of jeans. We opt for a classic high waisted straight or wide leg style, in the core colours of blue, black and white.

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.

Knitwear

A couple of classic knits will go a long way in the winter months. Perfect on their own with denim, or layered under a coat

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 white button up shirt is another piece that ticks the versatility box. Wear it on its own, open over a long sleeve top, or under your favourite winter coat

A Classic T-Shirt

A classic white t-shirt is always at the centre of our capsule wardrobe. In the winter months we rely on this classic as a layering piece underneath a tailored blazer or coat.

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.

Accessories

This is a no brainer for keeping our capsule wardrobes interesting. We love to add an oversized scarf to a winter outfit to add an interesting layering element and also keep us snug!
