Winter Capsule Wardrobe
This 33 piece set includes what I hope is everything I’ll need to get through the months of January, February, and March. I have 6 pairs of shoes, 6 bottoms (which I talk about in detail in this post), 2 dresses, and 19 tops and layering pieces. Click on the images for a closer look!
Most of my tops are older because I’ve found some tried and true items that I’ve held on to over the years. They’ve made it into many a winter capsule wardrobe of mine, as well as other seasons. I’ve linked to the closest items I could find, just click the corresponding number on the list below. If you want the exact details of one of my items, comment and let me know. You may be able to find one on Poshmark!
Like I mentioned above, I’ve already talked all about the bottoms for this capsule in my last post, which you can read here. If you were going to invest in only one of these six basic wardrobe bottoms, then dark wash skinny jeans are it. Mine are Modern Skinny Jeans in Dark Rinse Wash from LOFT. I like the hem to fall right below the ankle bone to work with heels, flats, and also to roll a cute cuff.
It wouldn’t be a mom style post if there weren’t black leggings included, right?! Everyone knows the benefits of black leggings so I won’t wax poetic here. But I’ve found a great quality inexpensive pair ($20)! that will keep you warm and won’t stretch thin. Plus you can wear these as pants because they actually are pants. Grab your perfect holy grail black leggings here.
The black dress is a LuLaRoe Amelia dress. I told one of my favorite LLR consultants that I was looking for a solid black Amelia, and when she got one in she let me know. It’s a great dress with pockets and sleeves and fits me just right so I’m glad she was able to find one for me!
The green dress was an inexpensive find from Ross. I think I paid about $10 for it. It’s nice and versatile because it looks great with tights and booties, leggings and flats, or bare legs and sandals when it’s warm. I can’t find one similar, but Ross always has stuff like this so check there!
I am unconventional in that I’m not obsessed with shoes like most women. I mostly just want them to be comfortable and last long so I don’t have to find something else that works. Those snakeskin d’orsay flats are the spendiest I’ve ever gotten on shoes because I was smitten with them.
What do you think of dressing with only 33 pieces?
