The capsule wardrobe: My take for Fall/Winter

In case you missed my post on creating a capsule wardrobe and you are wondering what the heck I am talking about, click here. Also as a little disclaimer, I work in an office environment where business casual is the norm, hence the lack of suits. With that out of the way, let’s get right into my capsule wardrobe for fall and winter 2019…


Tops (9 items):
white tank top (uniqlo), grey tank top and white tank top (both H&M);

blue shirt (Ralph Lauren), blue and white Oxford shirts (both uniqlo), white shirt (asos), creme flannel shirt (uniqlo), red flannel shirt (H&M)


Skirts and dresses (4 items):

Camel skirt and green skirt (both by COS), black knee-length print dress (uniqlo), black and navy knee-length knit dress (COS)


Bottoms (3 items):
black leggings (H&M), grey jeans (COS), mustard-colored jeans (COS)


Pullover (4 items):
Cashmere pullover in beige and grey, green pullover, navy pullover (all COS)


Cardigans (4 items):
blue shawl cardigan (COS), grey shawl cardigan (Comptoir de Cottoniers), grey shawl cardigan (H&M), and black boxy cardigan (uniqlo)



Outerwear (4 items):

blazer (Gant), parka (Barbour), down parka (Woolrich), down coat (Duvetica)



Shoes (6 items):

asos Chelsea boots, Pedro Garcia boots, Ugg boots, Nike trainers, Saint Laurent slip-ons, Marc’o Polo loafers (all of which need a decent scrub…)

But actually it was really easy to pick those 34 items, because (1) I really like them and (2) because after my closet clean-out, there were only a couple more items left that are appropriate for fall and winter…
