Today I’m sharing a winter capsule wardrobe outfits roundup.
Winter Capsule Wardrobe Outfits Roundup
If you have been reading the blog for a while you may have noticed that I’m wearing a lot of my items on repeat, whilst shopping a little less and dressing more in a capsule wardrobe style.
This is the first season that I have tried this way of dressing so it has been trial and error. I haven’t done anything drastic like getting rid of everything I own. I have packed a lot of my stuff away out of sight so that I could focus on what’s in the capsule wardrobe and below are some of the outfit combinations.
As some of my items in the capsule are a few seasons old, I have added in a couple of classic looks from last winter where you can see how I was wearing the items previously just to give some more inspo.
All of the items in my capsule wardrobe are classic pieces that many of you probably already own yourself, so hopefully, if you are looking to take on this type of wardrobe, then this post will be helpful to you to use some of the items you have in your own wardrobe.
I have enjoyed creating the different combinations and think this is definitely something that I could get used to long term. But I’m not sure if I could be so strict with myself as not to add to the capsule when I see items that I love. But with that in mind I have been shopping a lot less and thinking hard before buying new and would like to carry this on.
This post features outfits from only 21 items of clothing. The 21 seemed to be a good number for me but you may need more or less depending on your working or social life. I think in the future I would probably add a another top, sweater and a dress to my wardrobe.
I have tried to group the outfits together into the categories of the most worn pieces with a few extras so I hope you enjoy the roundup of 24 outfits.
