• {Fashion Monday} Winter Fashion Capsule 

    Winter Fashion Capsule, lists all the items I will be taking with me to Budapest and Cyprus getaways. I am normally quite good at packing items for a getaway and excited to share what I am planning with me. The trip to Budapest is only two days so this should be easy to pack for that a trip to Cyprus. Tomorrow on the blog I will be sharing why I only travel with carry-on bags for my getaways. Because of that, I have coined what items are essential for my winter fashion capsule.

    A {winter} fashion capsule is essential items of clothing that never go out of fashion regardless of the time period. Putting together a winter fashion capsule was easy because I know the items that I love and always wear. The beauty about fashion capsules is that they don’t always call for buying new things. You just have to search your wardrobe for your essential items and that’s it.

    Winter Fashion Capsule

    A winter fashion capsule should contain essential items for winter and when travelling that can be restrictive. Especially since I love to only take carry on bags on my getaways so what should you pack? For me, I think of items that I will actually use and my packing method is simple. I start with items that I will wear on my return, I know its crazy but it works. Then I pack what I will wear when leaving for my trip and pack one outfit for whilst I am there. This little method of mine has helped me for the last few years and I am absolutely loving it. Now that I have shared my little method, let’s check out what I am packing.

    Boots – It’s cold and snowy in some places so boots are a must this season. What I love about knee-length boots is I can use them as storage for smaller items I carry. You don’t have to waste space, you can either wear the boots or you can use them as I do.

    Jeans – these are universal staple items for every man and woman. You can never go wrong with a pair of jeans in your arsenal. You can dress them both up or down, which I have shown on my blog plenty of time.

    Jumpers/Sweaters – I am not a fan of the cold weather and I love extra padding. This is why I always pack some sort of cardigan/jumper/sweater with me.

    Leather Jacket – I recommend having one of these in your wardrobe, it’s a must-have item. I love styling my leather jacket and wear them all the time when I am travelling.

    Winter Coat – This is certainly a must for every winter fashion capsule.

      I have been working on my winter wardrobe a lot recently since I now have an office job and need to look presentable lol Always a struggle for me to stay warm and look cute. Today I bundled up and was still cold! (it snowed) It’s a work in progress lol

    3. February 23, 2017 / 2:42 am

      In the wintertime, I love sweaters with strips, and cable-knit sweaters with a pair of blue jeans. I usually get a couple pairs of boots in the wintertime too. I have never worn knee-high boots before, but I would like to one of these days.

    4. February 22, 2017 / 9:38 pm

      I think it’s a brilliant idea to have a fashion capsule for different seasons. It’s so much cheaper than buying into the latest trends and so much easier to pack too!

      I can’t stand those leotards for an extended period of time. It has to be worn in short bursts for me, haha!

      I am a habitual over-packer, so I am definitely taking notes, especially since you do it all with a carry on. Versatile pieces that you can mix and match are always a good idea!

    25. February 21, 2017 / 12:20 am

      You have a good choice of Jumpers/Sweater, it can be matched with any of the jeans and boots. I fall for that leather jacket, it was so gorgeous.

      I really love loose fitting sweaters in the winter, I tend to enjoy my comfort foods and want enjoy them in peace 🙂 I love the bodysuits and the boots. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we can’t be chic!

      Your jumper choices are amazing! I’d wear every single one of those… I’m no good as ‘capsule wardrobing’ = it’s something I need to get better at! I’m a TERRIBLE packer.

      I love love love the jacket, and every lady should have a great looking pair of boots. I love these picks and they would go well with anything.

    31. February 20, 2017 / 8:30 pm

      Great choices. I’m trying to get in the habit of packing with a carry on suitcase only. Have fun.

    32. February 20, 2017 / 8:28 pm

      Styling leather jackets is so much fun! I find they are so versatile and most totally agree with you that it’s a must-have item.

    33. February 20, 2017 / 7:14 pm

      These are pretty. I really like wearing my peacoat in the winter. I also have tons and tons of jeans.

    34. February 20, 2017 / 7:12 pm

      I love these pieces you chose. For winter, I love a pair of great boots, skinny jeans and a great sweater. Most of the pieces you picked out I would totally wear!

      February 20, 2017 / 2:54 pm

      I probably need to move over to a winter capsule wardrobe I have far too many jumpers I don’t need when really I only need a few essentials. I love that coat you’ve picked out!

    46. February 20, 2017 / 2:03 pm

      I love chunky sweaters! But those cuff boots are fantastic! I’m not much of a heel person, but I wouldn’t mind wearing those 🙂

    47. February 20, 2017 / 1:55 pm

      I love the fact that you only take carry bags with you – that’s my mind of thing too! I love the winter coat, it’s gorgeous!

    48. February 20, 2017 / 1:54 pm

      That leather jacket looks ace! They seems really popular at the moment!

      February 20, 2017 / 1:35 pm

      I do enjoy my winter wardrobe while I can, I’m a sucker for big jumpers and boots. But I’m like most, I have a lot of black and grey.

    50. February 20, 2017 / 1:34 pm

      So this capsule pretty much sums up my entire wardrobe! All I’m missing is that camel colored sweater. I love everything you picked out.

    51. Laura Wilson
      February 20, 2017 / 1:32 pm

      Love this selection and the colours are so me! I have a lovely leather jacket like that but need o slim back into it! I definitely need a big clear out and more of a capsule wardrobe too xx

    52. Jeanette
      February 20, 2017 / 1:12 pm

      I LOVE that grey sweater! It looks all nice and cuddly warm! I am with you I hate being cold so the bigger the sweater is the better!

      February 20, 2017 / 12:16 pm

      My whole wardrobe is pretty much grey and black. I need to get some color into my wardrobe….

    54. February 20, 2017 / 11:31 am

      I need to liven up my winter wardrobe with color. I love the color of the gold sweater above as well as the white and black striped one. Have fun in Budapest.

      February 20, 2017 / 10:36 am

      I love the idea of putting together essential items and not having to buy something new when I travel. I, too, always have a cardigan or sweater with me. Have fun on your trip!

    56. February 20, 2017 / 9:33 am

      Such a brilliant method and one that I think I will apply. FYI I am loving those boots x
