Handbag capsule wardrobe winter 2023

The winter season is here! This means it is time to switch into my winter handbag capsule wardrobe for the new year. For the winter season, the bags I plan to rotate are simple. The winter season is short, and I plan to attend casual events as well as keep things more on the casual side. This means I will be reaching for handbags which are casual, practical, and on trend.

The hobo is still going strong, as well as moon shaped handbags. For the winter season, I plan to wear my caramel hobo handbag when I need a roomy bag, and my smaller, moon shaped handbag when I am in a trendier mood. Love them both!

Of course, shoulder bags are hot this year too. I plan to rock the green handbag when I want a pop of color, and the black one when it is time to be classic. Both of these shoulder bags can also be worn cross body when I am running errands or I want to be hands-free; even though cross body bags are over, sometimes it is nice to have that versatility.

Hobo Handbags

Classic Shoulder Bags

As we move into 2023, handbags trends are moving into quieter territory. Steer clear of logo bags, and any bag that is trying to show off or grab attention. The quiet handbag is all the rage. Invest in bags this year which are high quality, versatile, practical, and simple. Colors are fine, as well as neutrals. As long as the bags are simple and chic.

Size matters in 2023. Oversized bags are over. Of course, when you are going somewhere and need a tote bag, by all means, wear a tote! That being said, wear the smallest bag you can get away with and carry what you need to bring with you when you leave the house. Mini, small and medium bags are what’s hot for 2023.

Rule of thumb for 2023: Small, simple, and chic.

Winter 2023 capsule wardrobe

Viva Magenta! How fun is the color of the year for 2023!? Love! I am really happy my vintage wool scarf is the color of 2023, especially since I purchased it in 1999! A scarf is a really easy way to add a pop of color to any winter look. If you are looking for a scarf, I love this one under $100. It’s a good quality scarf as I have the same one in green, blue, and light pink. You will love it!

My winter 2023 capsule wardrobe is similar to my fall and holiday capsule wardrobes; with the exception of the pop of color. Since winter is the first season in January, I wanted my color accent to be Viva Magenta; the color of 2023!

The styles from the fall and holiday seasons have remained the same. We are looking at blazers with jeans, power suits for the office or dressier occasions, wide or flare jeans, and a general nod to the trends from the turn of the century.

In addition to my casual capsule wardrobe, I have a few jackets I plan to rotate during the winter depending upon the weather. They are all linked below for reference.

It is cold this year! To top things off, we are finally getting our normal weather; which we have not had in several years. This means tons of rain, cold weather, and the need for practical yet fashionable footwear.

As long as things are clear in the sky, these golden boots are perfect for adding some spice to casual outfits. Of course, my standby lug sole boots are great for inclement weather. I do have snow boots, but I use those more when I travel to snow. Although, I have worn them locally when the weather is really cold and wet, so don’t rule out the snow boots in California!

As you know, the color of 2023 is Viva Magenta. I found these high-top sneakers in a shade close to magenta. Why not be comfy and fabulous at the same time? Love that!

My faux fur boots from last year are still in like-new condition and keep my feet warm on cold winter days. I reach for them several times per week. You can still snap up a pair in black, ivory or neutral. Love! I have an ivory pair too!
