TWe’ve talked about capsule wardrobes for summer and fall, but creating a capsule wardrobe for the winter can be a little trickier. You need more clothes in the winter, depending where you live. We’ve got five tips for creating a winter capsule wardrobe that will take you through the entire season.
Five tips for creating a warm winter capsule wardrobe that will last the entire season
Tip #1: Choose a color scheme
For winter, darker colors tend to be popular. Go for dark blues, dark greens, and the always useful black when choosing items for your winter capsule wardrobe. Of course, you can choose whatever colors you like and look best in, but stick with two or three colors that mix and match well.
Tip #2: Don’t count jackets and other outerwear
It’s a given that you’ll need these things on some level no matter you live. This doesn’t mean you should go wild buying new outerwear just because it doesn’t count toward your capsule wardrobe limit. It helps to have a couple of different coats on hand, as well as snow or rain boots if the weather calls for them.
Tip #3: Plan for layering
You can get by with having fewer items in your winter capsule wardrobe by planning to wear layers. Long sleeve shirts can be worn on their own or layered under sweaters and sweatshirts. Leggings can be worn under dresses instead of tights or around the house as loungewear.
Tip #4: Accessorize
Scarves, hats, earrings, and necklaces can also make your winter capsule wardrobe go a lot further. You can use scarves and hats to dress up plain t-shirts and sweaters and sweatshirts. Accessories can also help you create more options for mixing and matching your clothing options.
Tip #5: Don’t be afraid to rethink things
You might start out with what you think is the perfect winter capsule wardrobe, but then the weather is warmer then you were anticipating. You might have to revisit your wardrobe halfway through the season and make adjustments depending on the weather.
