Winter is underway! Now that the holiday season has passed, it is time to put together my winter capsule wardrobe. Thank you for all the great feedback after I posted my holiday capsule wardrobe in early November. I’m so glad you enjoy this series! Since the holiday season shares roughly the same weather pattern as the winter season, my capsule wardrobe for winter is not very different from the holidays. The big difference is, instead of a focus on holiday green/red, this capsule wardrobe focuses on the color of 2020, which is Classic Blue! Yay!!

As you can tell, my casual, everyday capsule wardrobe for winter is almost identical to the one I showed you for the holiday season. The big difference is that I swapped the earrings, and changed the key color. The red tee and earrings have been replaced with their blue counter-parts; and the green scarf has been replaced with two blue ones. I have owned this light blue scarf, and this medium blue scarf for a few years now, so it was easy to add them into the rotation for the winter season. You probably don’t need two scarves for the season, unless you live somewhere really cold. I would recommend picking your favorite blue hue, and investing in one scarf.

As far as denim trends are concerned, we are still seeing cropped denim, skinny jeans, and boot-cut jeans in the new year. So, I am sticking with boot-cut and skinny since they are the most flattering styles on me. I also have a pair of leggings in my winter capsule wardrobe since they are comfortable; and ideal for ultra casual days.

When it comes to earrings, I put my sparkles away until a special occasion comes up, and for the next holiday season. I pulled out a pair of large, classic hoops for fun; and my blue earrings, and silver earrings for day-to-day wear. Stay tuned for another post about my winter shoe capsule!

Not every day is casual during the winter months, therefore, we all need a dressier winter capsule wardrobe for the office, dinner dates, and other occasions. Sometimes you can dress up jeans with high heel booties, and other times we need to ditch the jeans (gasp!) and put on a skirt paired with knee boots-for ultimate warmth on cold days.

This coat is an instant outfit enhancer! It can make any pair of denim look structured, and it adds a dressy vibe when thrown over almost anything. The belt helps give it shape too. Love it!

These knit tops are also great for dressing up a casual look. They have a more put-together look than a long sleeve tee, and can instantly elevate any look. I’m looking forward to dressing up this season using this capsule wardrobe!

Winter around here does not last too long, so this should carry me thought January and February. How long does winter last where you live?

Holidays 2019 shoe wardrobe

I’m wearing a lot of shoes this holiday 2019 season! That’s because in addition to my normal wardrobe, there will be parties to attend; which means I must have party-ready shoes!

For the 2019 holiday season, I am bringing back my charcoal western style booties from fall 2018, pulling my black patent pumps from my closet (roughly ten years old), and continuing to wear my Gucci platforms, and high heel booties, from the fall season. In addition, I will also wear my adidas Superstar sneakers; but they are not pictured here because I wear them so much you really don’t need to see pictures of them; they are well worn! haha

This holiday season, I added a pair of tall suede boots, and a pair of stamped croc booties to my shoe wardrobe. Those are the only new shoes for the season. I love having shoes in my closet which can be re-worn year-after-year. These charcoal western style booties are super comfortable, and offer a classic style which has longevity in my closet. Of course the Gucci sneakers also have longevity, and will be worn until they wear out!

A classic pair of pumps is always a closet must-have! These patent pumps have served me well over the years, and will continue to serve me well for many years to come! If you don’t have an investment pair of classic pumps, what are you waiting for? Snap a pair up! You won’t be sorry.

The high heel booties pictured here have also turned into a closet staple for me. They are great for dressing up casual looks, or adding some sass to dressier outfits. They are super affordable, and a must-have right now!

Black boots are a must as well. This black suede pair will carry me from the holiday season into the winter season. It’s good to have a pair of classic tall boots on hand; especially in black!

I could not resist this pair of black stamped croc booties. They are classic with a twist. I am looking forward to elevating my holiday looks with them!

Holidays 2019 bag wardrobe

holiday handbag capsule wardrobe

It’s entirely possible I have been in a black handbag mood for the past year. As you can see, all my bags are black right now! Well, black is classic, and can seamlessly move from season to season. This makes black handbags a great investment option if you are looking for longevity in your bags; and despite my handbag shopping addiction, I do look for longevity in my bags! haha, hard to believe right?!

For the holiday 2019 season, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains one mini bag I can wear to parties. This mini bag is my Valentino VSling. It’s a great little bag since it can be worn for both casual parties, and dressy events. It plays well with the sequin looks from my holiday capsule wardrobe. If you don’t have a little bag to pull out for the holiday 2019 season, I highly recommend this one! It’s a current IT bag, and the strap is convertible. See my full review here.

Since the holidays are busy, a cross body bag is a must. If you don’t need a lot of room, but want to remain hands-free, this cross body bag works like a charm. It is also convertible. It can be a cross body bag, or a belt bag. Love that!

The rainy season will start soon, and football season isn’t over. So, this little PVC tote is perfect since it is stadium approved when the interior pouch is removed; and since it’s PVC, it is rain proof. Love! Be sure to incorporate a PVC bag into your holiday wardrobe for those reasons. This is an IT bag and priced under $200. Love!

Lastly, my workhorse bag this holiday season is my Chloe Aby. It’s roomy and can be worn over the shoulder, or cross body. This makes it ideal for busy holiday, errand filled days.

That’s it! Four bags should get you through the busy holiday season. Shop your closet for a small or mini bag you can wear to formal affairs, one cross body bag, a PVC bag, and a workhorse bag. If you are missing any of these bag styles for the holiday season, check out my picks, and invest in once!

Have a fabulous holiday season!
