Winter Capsule Wardrobe Ideas That Work Every Time

The winter season is a great time to try a capsule wardrobe. Capsule wardrobes are small collections of clothing that people wear regularly. They are meant to be easy to maintain and work for any occasion.

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of clothing that you can rotate throughout the year. It takes the guesswork out of what to wear and saves you from having clothes that don't get worn because they're not quite right for the occasion.

A good rule of thumb is to have no more than 25 pieces in your capsule wardrobe, but this number can vary depending on how often you plan to wear each piece and how much variety you want in your capsule wardrobe. The most important thing is that you love everything in your capsule wardrobe!

You should choose items that work together well — both with each other and with what you already own. You don't have to buy new clothes; just make sure everything works together well so that there's no duplication between your existing clothes and what's in your capsule wardrobe.

The key is taking a minimalist approach and choosing functional pieces that can be worn year-round without having to think too hard about what to wear or whether it will look good together with other items in the closet.

For this winter season, we've put together our ultimate winter capsule wardrobe. Here are our picks for tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories:

A Great Winter Coat 

The coat is the most important piece in your winter capsule wardrobe because it's the one item you'll wear every single day. It doesn't matter if you're going to work, running errands, or meeting up with friends — it's always good to have a coat on hand.

The cashmere or wool coat is a classic investment and an essential piece for any wardrobe. You can find them in just about every color and style imaginable, so there's no need to worry about finding one that fits your needs exactly!

Turtlenecks with Tucks

Winter is the perfect time to break out your favorite turtleneck. Turtlenecks are great because they can be worn in so many ways. They can be dressed up or down and paired with everything from jeans to dresses. If you want to add some interest to your wardrobe, try tucking a turtleneck into a pair of pants or a skirt!
This look is very versatile and easy to wear. You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with sneakers. Try pairing the look with a long necklace for added impact!

Black Jeans

It’s always a good idea to have a few pairs of black jeans in your closet because they can go with almost anything. Our go-to brands are Hudson Jeans and AG Jeans. Both brands have great fits, colors, and prices!

A Neutral Bag

For those days when you don’t want to carry around a backpack or messenger bag, having a neutral bag like this one from Madewell is essential for carrying your essentials around town! You can keep it casual or dress it up depending on what you pair it with!


Knits are great because they give you a casual look without sacrificing style. They're also great for layering — if you think of your outfit as layers of clothing, then you can layer different knits together to create different looks.

The other thing that makes knits so perfect for winter is that they are warm and cozy! They keep you warm and snuggly when it's cold outside, but they don't make you sweat like thicker fabrics do when it gets warmer outside (like denim).


A classic shoe, loafers are a great addition to any wardrobe. They can be worn with smart attire or dressed down with jeans and a shirt. Loafers are versatile shoes that can be worn with most outfits.


The main thing to keep in mind with a capsule wardrobe is that you can always expand it if you find yourself in need of more clothing. And actually, sometimes it's nice to have a little variety in your style; even though your wardrobe is limited, you can still look different from day to day.
