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!

Not too long ago, I wrote a post about the 10 basic items you need in your wardrobe, and SO many people told me they found this helpful. 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 *.
