I’m excited to share my updated winter capsule wardrobe with you today! Since the purpose of a capsule wardrobe is to keep your wardrobe to a minimum, I was intentional with sticking to a mostly neutral wardrobe color palette because they mix and match so well together. I selected all the pieces from Nordstrom because they carry a variety of high quality wardrobe staples.
Winter Capsule Tops, Sweaters & Cardigans:
For this portion, I made sure to choose tops and sweaters with different necklines, lengths and material so you could have some variety. A must-have basic is the henley long sleeve shirt. You can wear it by itself or as a layering top underneath cardigans or jackets. This turtleneck tunic sweater covers the bum so they would be good to wear with leggings. The drapey cardigan is a cozy staple and I have it styled two ways below.
Winter Capsule Outerwear:
A good winter wardrobe has everything you need for easy layering and will keep you warm. There are two types of outerwear I recommend having – a dressier coat and an everyday casual jacket. This coat is beautiful and will go great together with dressier outfits. Its fabric content is 80% wool so it will keep you warm. For a more casual piece, I chose the packable quilted jacket which is also really awesome as it doesn’t take up a ton of space as most outerwear typically does.
Winter Capsule Bottoms:
The black faux leather leggings are a popular item. They are so versatile and looks stylish dressed up or down so I wanted to include them in this capsule wardrobe. This blog post has more outfit ideas and different ways to style faux leather leggings. I also added a dark wash pair of skinny jeans that can be worn with everything and versatile black leggings that can double as everyday athleisure and part of your casual winter wardrobe.
Winter Capsule Shoes:
The shoes are pretty straight forward. I love knee high boots to dress up an outfit. A pair of brown boots are essential and they look great with the skinny jeans or leggings. Then lastly, I recommend a pair of comfortable shoes such as these Adidas sneakers that you can just slip on and go.
Winter Capsule Bags & Cold Weather Accessories:
I couldn’t make a capsule wardrobe and not include my favorite everyday tote bag. It’s big and spacious which is perfect for making sure I never leave the house with everything I need. Nothing will keep you cozier than this oversized scarf and plush beanie. The ivory will match with any of the outfits you put together in this winter capsule wardrobe ☺️.
Winter Capsule Wardrobe Outfit Ideas
This white basic tank is nice and long but size up if between, it’s VERY fitted. The cozy long cardigan fits true to size. These black leggings kind of suck 🙃🙃. They’re cotton so they pick up EVERYTHING. I found this alternate pair and it looks promising as it has over 2k positive reviews. Lastly, my Adidas sneakers are great for running or running errands and also true to size.
