It’s always tricky in January knowing what to wear. It’s cold and we need to wrap up, but don’t want to look bulked up, or like we have thrown on a mismatch of pieces. With a Winter Capsule Wardrobe though, you can still look smart and stay warm. Here are my current winter capsule wardrobe pieces and 3 new items I am planning to add, giving plenty of options. I’ve layered knits and a wool wrap or the coat for really cold days. For milder days or smarter occasions the blouses layer with a knit, the poncho or the coat.

Winter capsule wardrobe outfits
If you work with a colour palette, carefully adding new pieces that work in the palette, you will have more outfit options.
For my winter capsule wardrobe I have used neutrals of tan/camel and grey and the main accent colour is berry/burgundy. I have then added in two printed blouses that incorporate grey and tan and one spring sweater in a pink to brighten the capsule and transition it into Spring.
By the way, I had the burgundy boots for Christmas and despite being quite high they have a really comfortable block heel (I love the touch of sparkle they add to a daytime outfit and they are perfect for evenings too)
