The relaxed winter capsule wardrobe

Since I’ve been on a bit of an unofficial shopping ban for the better part of this year, my attitude to capsule wardrobes, and minimalism (to an extent – but that’s another story for another day) has really shifted. I’ve embraced the idea of living with less, and how effortless getting ready each morning becomes with a carefully edited selection of pieces.

I felt much less inclined to stick to the foundations of Project 333 for winter, instead taking a much more different approach to my capsule this season. My focus turned more to the core pieces that I was planning to wear this winter, my preferred colour palette (which will come as little surprise…) and the proportions my outfits would be based on. There are some stripes, a few merino knit sweaters, loose flowing midi skirts, cropped woollen trousers and a cocooned raw wool coat. The palette is just what you’d expect from me; black, white, and every shade of grey in between, with a little bit of camel thrown in for good measure.

So I thought I’d put together a quick and fun video sharing with you all the foundations of my winter wardrobe – for those of you wondering how a languid flowing almost-mini-dress has made the cut, think a very thick pair of opaque stockings and some Uniqlo heat tech for good measure.

I will be fleshing it out a little as needed, but I’m quickly learning just how much a creature of habit I can truly be.

    I so enjoyed this…and the outfits you’ve put together. I’d love to see the pleated skirt with your IM heels too.

      I’m hoping to try and get some snaps of some of these items in outfits, as they’re all pretty easy to mix and match. When it’s not too cold I think!
