36-Piece Fall Winter Capsule Wardrobe

A 36-piece fall winter capsule wardrobe with outfit combinations

I cannot believe it’s been a year since I first started this whole capsule wardrobe thing. Who would have thought that stumbling upon one girl’s blog could change my entire perspective on style and shopping? I’ve basically lost the urge to buy clothes all the time like I used to (although, let’s be real, I still have my moments), and my wallet has never been happier. Plus, I can spend my time doing more productive things than trying to find a parking spot at the mall.

Okay, okay. Enough with the benefits of capsule wardrobes. You guys want to see what’s in my Fall Winter wardrobe, so let’s cut to the chase.

Things To Know:
  • I work in a casual office setting, so my clothes aren’t too fancy but I do try to avoid jeans at work
  • I live in Seattle so it’s basically always raining, and the winters can get pretty cold (but not as bad as some of you guys on the east coast)
  • I don’t follow a number rule for my capsule wardrobe, I just choose pieces that will work with at least 3 other items

In this post, I’ll share with you what the foundation of my wardrobe looks like (pieces that work year-round), what I’ve added this season to keep me warm and toasty, and five different outfit combinations so you can see how it all works together. Let’s do this!

P.S. Curious about starting your own capsule wardrobe? Here’s a step-by-step guide & free wardrobe planner to get you going!

My capsule wardrobe is built upon these basic items because they stay the same year-round, which means I only need to add a few more pieces to make it more appropriate for the weather. To distinguish the basic items from the seasonal items, I’ve marked the new additions down below with an *.

    These are great! I already have most of these (plus some) in my closet. Love the olive green, it’s one of my favorite fall/winter colors!

    • I’m OBSESSED with olive green right now (hence having so many pieces in that color haha)

  • LOVE IT! I’m putting mine together this week :) A question for you– how did you stitch the images of the clothes together? Your pieces look amazing!

    • Yay, thanks Daisy! Excited to see yours! I used Canva to put all of the images together. It wasn’t exactly a quick process, but it’s easier than using Photoshop because Canva allows you to see when things are lined up/the same size :)

  • awesome post. I’m so doing this once I need a post pregnancy/nursing wardrobe. I’m curious too and would love, like Daisy to know how you made the images.

    • Not too long now! Due in November, right? ;) I commented down below on Daisy’s comment with how I made the images…hope that helps!

      • Yes! Thank you for the tip. I love Canva, but I’m not very good at using it yet.

    Hi Catherine–this looks great! Were these images of your actual pieces or did you choose images for similar items that are currently available in stores? I’m currently trying to determine how I’m going to photograph and put mine together.

    • Hi Lauren! I mainly just tried to find images that had a white background and looked similar to what I own, although some of them are the exact items. Quite a few items I’ve owned for a while and weren’t available anymore, so I did have to do some searching to find similar ones.

  • So cute Catherine! I have a very similar style to you – pretty simple and classy, with touches of trendy here and there. Loved this overview of what your wardrobe for the cooler months looks like!

    • Thanks, Christina! Simple and classy is the way to go ;)

  • Ooh, gorgeous. We have a very similar style, although I’m maybe a touch more boho … a result of living subtropical I think! Although I’m about to have my first ‘proper’ winter in 3 years and I’m a bit nervous, so these are great ideas of what to wear in cooler weather.

    • The Seattle weather makes it very difficult to be boho haha! I’m excited to hear more about your journey around the world and how you survive the weather <3

  • Jane

    Although I live in a humid subtropical climate my all year round wardrobe requires some changes in this list, it is very helpful guide as I’m starting my first capsule wardrobe just now!

    • Oh that’s awesome, Jane! Good luck with your first capsule :D

  • Linnea

    I’ve only recently been turned on to the “minimalist” lifestyle and am completely enthralled. I’ve just discovered the capsule wardrobe and after spending hours looking at blogs I finally found one that I love-so thank you! I hope you don’t mind, but I am copying the basic concepts of your wardrobe; though, because I am a SAHM I’m making it a tad more casual. Any suggestions as to where I might find a camel colored sweater similar to the one you have posted here? Don’t be surprised if you run into me at Pikes Place wearing the same outfit as you! haha. :-)

  • Ariel Theresa

    I guess I just dont understand how to make different outfits out of these. Any suggestions?
