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.

Finally I wanted to thank you all for your continued support on the blog this year. I’m going to be taking a few days off now to spend some time with my family. If you celebrate the holidays then Happy Holidays to you. If not then I hope you enjoy the final days of 2018. I look forward to catch up with you all in 2019!

  • Mica

    You created such a good capsule wardrobe, it’s nice seeing how you wear all the pieces! 🙂 I’d love to have a capsule wardrobe but I like all my clothes and choices too much, haha! I did it in pregnancy but that was more because I could only fit into a few pieces to it made sense to put the rest aside! I should try it again though! 🙂

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend! I finished Christmas food shopping yesterday and all the gifts are bought so now we are just relaxing until the big day 🙂 Have a merry Christmas!

    Happy New Year, my sweet friend! I hope 2019 brings you plenty of joyful memories and success all in great health for you and your loved ones. I love the outfits you’ve shared here, showing the many ways you can wear a particular piece in a way that’s very fresh and new each time, exuding a different vibe as well. To me, this is what constitutes a capsule wardrobe. The versatility and practicality and how they all work together. Thanks so much for sharing and cheers to 2019!

    I love that pleated patterned skirt. it is playful while still remaining utterly classy. Hope you had the best holiday season!


  • Izabela Nair

    So many great outfits. I love how you are mixing and matching. Too often as bloggers we focus on buying new clothes and forget that we can have so much fun with what we already own.

    Hope you’re having a great start to the New Year Gemma!


  • Naomella

    My dear Gemma, I also want this year to shop less and to save more and to be happy with what I own already and to kind of shop my own closet! That´s why I places all the orders in 2018 so that I really try not to shop in 2019. So happy you are into capsule wardrobe! I like all the created outfits! And happy new year my dear with all the best for you and your family! xoxo Ivi

  • Kasie

    I am such a fan of capsule wardrobes, especially when they are as chic as yours! I hope you are enjoying your few days off with your family and that 2019 brings wonderful things to your life!

  • Naghmeh

    love the looks, classic and chic! I’ve also been buying less, shopping my own closet and buying more investment pieces and have been really enjoying the process.
    really like the outfit with the leather skirt and your leopard print coat is so cute!

    Happy 2019 Gemma! What a gorgeous post. For me the Burgundy coat really suits you so beautifully and a shade I would be keen to wear this Winter, what a cheerful colour indeed.

    I must comment to say that your hair is sooo beautiful and thick, you look gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing and wishing you a great 2019!

    Lots of love,
