My 32-Piece Winter Capsule Wardrobe

| |

Since it is the middle of Winter, I thought I would share with you my winter capsule wardrobe.  I’m a BIG FAN of capsule wardrobes and I love helping other women start their own capsule wardrobes!  Since I have kept a capsule wardrobe, my closet is always neat and organized (that happens automatically with a capsule wardrobe), think twice about anything I buy and thus have saved $1,000’s, I’m less stressed and I get dressed in record time in the mornings.

My 32-piece Winter Capsule Wardrobe

My life didn’t always used be like this.  My closet used to be packed with clothes, so much so, that I couldn’t see all the clothes in my closet.  My clothes hung so close together that I couldn’t find the pieces I needed to get dressed, so often I ran late for work.  I had clothes with too many patterns that didn’t coordinate well, clothes that didn’t fit right…my closet was a mess!  I discovered “capsule wardrobes” on Pinterest.  It took me a couple of seasons to get the hang of having a capsule.  I did hours of research and had to learn how to create a capsule on my own.  I mastered it and I know I will always keep a capsule wardrobe in my closet.

If you’re thinking about starting a capsule wardrobe of your own and have no idea where to begin, or you have tried to learn the concept but don’t know what pieces will work for you, visit my Capsule Wardrobe e-Book Store, where you can choose from several capsules: a French Minimalist Capsule (all neutral palette & dressy/casual), Essential Capsule (neutrals and colors & dressy/casual), Workwear Capsule (for the office & all dressy) and Stay At Home Mom Capsule (all casual).  Most importantly, I walk you through step by step instructions on how to create your own capsule wardrobe!

So, on to what’s in my capsule wardrobe…

My capsule wardrobe is a combination of the Essential and French Minimalist capsules in the e-Book store.  I work in an office and our dress code is business casual.  We can get by wearing jeans if we dress them up a bit, so luckily I get to wear both denim and colored jeans to work.

I chose 32 pieces for my winter capsule.  The color scheme I chose was mostly neutrals, like black, beige, white and gray, with a few blues, burgundy and plaid.  There were a few pieces I was missing, so I looked for the pieces online, using my ShopStyle app.   By using the app, you can search for an item, sort the items by price, store, and brand.  It’s really handy when you’re looking for a particular piece and saves time too!  I looked for those pieces online at my favorite stores like: Loft, J. Crew, J. Crew Factory, Nordstrom and Target.   Most of my pieces carried over from last Winter.

  1. Hi Leanne,
    I’m very excited about the Stay at Home mom capsule wardrobe. Will you be creating more of these in the future. I already have a semi capsule wardrobe for winter with a lot of your guidance but am interested in purchasing your spring and summer which is where I really need the help. I really enjoy your blog.

  2. Kris,

    Thank you for your comment! It looks like the Stay At Home Mom Capsule has become popular, so I’ll be releasing more in the upcoming seasons!


  3. I’m interested to see the outfit combinations you use with this capsule. I didn’t see where you illustrated that.

  4. I have come to admire Capsule Wardrobes after participating in the 30-Day Capsule Wardrobe Challenge. It’s great you’ve seen the power of creating outfits from a limited amount of clothing and accessories. It’s all about using what you have!

  5. Oh LeAnn, I love all your posts! This one however was the most helpful of them all! I too work in a similar environment (but I don’t have to wear the pumps, YAY) So I combined the French Minimalist and the Essential for both my fall and my winter capsules this year. I am having so much fun saving money buying less, and having more to wear! So having this peak into your closet made my day. For my 3rd pieces I have blazers. I’m often cold and need the warmth. They are more casual than dressy and I love my capsule wardrobes. I’v tried many other blogs and web-sights on the topic over the years but nothing worked well for me. Your books work for me. I’v been a pleased customer for the past two years and am looking for many to come. This means you will have to keep making these wonderful ebooks and fantastic blogs.

    Happy well dressed Midwife
