Hellooooo and happy 2022!! These past few months have been pretty busy and have just FLOWN by [the holidays! recovering from being sick! New Years! my birthday! moving! running a half-marathon–and that was just the last few weeks!]– so I’ve been a little behind on releasing my winter capsule collection…but I’m so excited it’s here for my first blog post of the new year!
Just like my previous fall collection, this is actually my first official winter capsule collection as I previously mixed fall/winter together–and then skipped a winter capsule release last year.
MY WINTER CAPSULE WARDROBE
My winter capsule only needed a few updates from my fall capsule. I added a few turtleneck options, added an additional puffer coat, switched out my black straight jeans for skinny jeans [since they are more versatile with winter boots], and added in waterproof black boots and UGGs. I’ve always left out my UGGs in the past, but if I’m being real, I pretty much live in my UGGs LOL. I want my capsules to be as realistic and wearable as possible [and not influenced by what I think I should or should not include] so I made sure to include them to create some UGG outfit inspo 🙂 And just to note, I live in California where we have pretty mild winters, so be sure to adjust the layers or items needed based on your winter! For example, many of you will probably need to include additional winter/snow boots, whereas UGGs usually suffice for me.
You’ll also find that I’ve also added in descriptions under each item. I do this because it’s not about the specific product shown, but rather the type/style of item [for example, blue jeans or black jeans]. You can use my product recommendations for guidance when shopping, but my hope is that you can use these pieces form your own closet to create different outfits.
ABOUT CAPSULE WARDROBES
WHAT IS A CAPSULE WARDROBE?
A capsule wardrobe consists of a few essential items that don’t go out of style and can be augmented with seasonal pieces. Every capsule collection varies in size, but it is usually between 30-40 pieces that you wear for a season until you transition in new pieces to wear for the next season, and repeat.
A couple of important things to note:
- Don’t get stuck on the number of pieces you have in your collection! It’s not so much about the number of items you have as much as it’s about building a collection that works for YOU.
- This collection does not include everything in my wardrobe or everything I wear in a season. These are my essential pieces that allow me to easily style just about any outfit during the season, and the pieces that are on repeat probably 90% of the time.
A CAPSULE WARDROBE HELPS:
- Minimize and declutter your closet
- Save money in the long run [no throwing out clothes constantly to stay up with the ever-changing trends]
- Make it easy to style outfits [versatile pieces makes it easy to pair everything together!]
- Reduce the time you spend focusing on shopping, which allows you to increase the time you spend on other things!
EVERY CAPSULE COLLECTION IS UNIQUE!
Everyone’s style is different so your collection doesn’t have to look like just like mine [or anyone else’s]! I hope these posts are a source of inspiration but you do not need to feel like you have to have the same items to create your own wardrobe. Stick to pieces that you love and fit your body type.
