Capsule Wardrobe Updates – What to Wear Now

Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year break.

Now that the tinsel and wrapping paper is packed away and the New Year celebrated my thoughts have turned to capsule wardrobe updates and what to wear now. January is a long month and if you, like me have over indulged, it’s not one where you want to put too much of your body on show. Here in the UK the weather is doing us a favour by turning cold, so we can hide under layers when we venture out. Below are a few ideas for what to add to your Winter capsule wardrobe and luckily some of them are on sale too.

Capsule Wardrobe Updates – Cosy Knit Wear

No January capsule wardrobe would be complete without some cosy knits. Below are a few suggestions to keep you warm and by being a loose fit, hide over indulgence too. Neutrals are always a good option, especially if they are in luxurious cashmere, personalise them on each wear by adding a different necklace or scarf (check out our patterned scarves here for lots of options). Alternatively brighten up the greyest January day with a pop of colour. I had this gorgeous knit from Santa and it’s perfect for now; cosy and in one of my favourite colours.

Capsule Wardrobe Updates – Shawls,Wraps & Ponchos

On days when I want to wear a chunky knit that doesn’t work with a coat, a wrap or poncho is the perfect solution. They add a layer of warmth that can easily be whipped off when you go from outside to inside. They can also add a second colour to give your outfit more interest.

Here I am wearing one of my favourites – about 3 years old – featured in this video.
