Winter 2021 capsule wardrobe

casual winter 2021 capsule wardrobe

casual winter 2021 capsule wardrobe from top left: ivory sweater  / pink long sleeve tee (under $15) / sparkling earrings (under $50) / blue and gold statement earrings / bead bracelets / destroyed denim jeans (under $50) / black belt / grey scarf (under $100) / blue sweater (on sale under $100) / burgundy long sleeve tee (under $15) / black jeans (under $50) /

Well, as you can see, my capsule wardrobe for this season is really paired down. California has gone back into lock-down, so I don’t need anything dressy, or overly trendy this season. It appears we will be locked down into January, and since winter only lasts through early February here, there isn’t a need for anything other than a casual capsule wardrobe. I will start to transition to spring in February since temperatures will start to become mild.

My winter 2021 capsule wardrobe has everything I need in an outfit when I leave the house. A cozy sweater, comfortable jeans, and a tee. This ivory sweater is a fabulous investment piece which can be worn for many winters to come. The blue sweater is also an investment, although it’s trendier silhouette lends it to ‘three winter seasons’ max status. The fabulous part is that my blue sweater comes in a variety of colors and it’s on sale for under $100. Love that!

Normally I would incorporate the color of the year into my winter capsule wardrobe, since it’s the first capsule of the year. This year is a little different since I am not a huge yellow fan, when it comes to clothing. I am going to wait until spring to see how to incorporate it into my accessories. When it comes to clothing, I will use the grey as an accent color. If you haven’t already heard, yellow and grey are the color of 2021.

I decided instead of yellow, I would continue with grey as an accent and mix together berry and blue hues for the winter season. These are staple colors in my wardrobe, and I always gravitate towards them no matter the season. So, they seem right for the winter season this year.

holidays 2020 capsule wardrobe casual

Casual holidays 2020 capsule wardrobe: fringe sweater vest (under $100) / grey scarf (under $100) / pink scarf (under $100) / pink long sleeve tee (under $15) / antique gold hoop earrings (under $100) / antique gold chain link bracelet (under $100) / burgundy long sleeve tee (under $15) / cashmere sweater in ivory c/o The Perfect Provenance / distressed girlfriend jeans (under $50) / black snake buckle belt / black skinny jeans (under $50) /

Can you believe the holiday season is already here! Where does the time go? This year, I feel like I am in more of a berry hue mood rather than a traditional red and green mood for the holiday season. While I may still rock Christmas colors from time to time during the season, my capsule wardrobe is neutral with a pop of pink and burgundy.

I am all about cozy and casual this holiday season. The usual parties I attend are canceled due to the pandemic, so my wardrobe doesn’t need to be fancy. This holiday season, I will be living in jeans, tee’s and cozy sweaters. This fringe sweater vest is my avant-garde piece for the season. It can be paired with a solid color, long sleeve tee to add some pizazz, or, I can pair it with classic black for a more understated look; as I did in this post.

This classic cashmere sweater is a fabulous investment piece for the holiday season, winter season, and for many years to come. I found it at an amazing local shop in Tiburon named “The Perfect Provenance.” Everything they sell in store, they also sell online! Definitely check them out online here!

While I may not have any parties to attend, it is still fun to wear a dress from time to time! This fabulous dress can be dressed up with a pair of heels, or worn casually with boots, and this soft cashmere sweater thrown over the shoulders for a cozy yet preppy look. You’ll see me in this dress a lot this season! It’s a year-round piece for those of us in California. It can be worn with sandals in the summer and espadrille wedges in the spring. It can also be paired with booties during the fall season. This dress is a fabulous investment piece for my wardrobe! It too is from The Perfect Provenance. You have to check them out!

It’s perfect for lounging around the house with soft, knit pants and this cozy sweater. Of course, no loungewear look is complete without cozy slippers. These slippers are my life right now! They are also a great gift idea for the holiday season. Love them!

Holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe from left: Casual, everyday black satchel / large soft clutch for casual looks / gold and black dressy clutch made with cork and detachable chain strap c/o Jord /

My holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe is here! This holiday 2020 season, I am paring down my bag rotation since parties have been cancelled, and we will be home much more than in past holiday seasons.

For the holiday season, I need a workhorse, everyday bag. That bag is my Givenchy Antigona. It is a bag I have had in my wardrobe for years, and it’s strong construction, coupled with ideal interior capacity, makes it the perfect everyday bag of the season. If you are looking for an investment bag to enjoy for years, this is it!

Of course, it is always fun to mix things up! For casual occasions, when I don’t need a workhorse bag, this soft clutch is perfect. It holds coveted IT bag status, and it’s roomy enough to fit my sunglasses case, hand sanitizer, and few extra masks in addition to my wallet and phone. I also love that it’s red (flamma) inside! So fun!

Lastly, outdoor dining is beautiful during the holiday season as the streets are lined with lit up trees and seasonal decor. I am looking forward to wearing this sustainable and vegan, cork handbag on dressier occasions. It has golden flecks, and a detachable gold chain strap. It also happens to be red inside, love that! I also love the versatility of the detachable straps, it’s nice to have a bag which can be worn as a shoulder bag or clutch. Stay tuned for my upcoming review next week!
