Autumn/Winter Capsule Wardrobe

"A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces." - Suzie Faux
Autumn/Winter is my favourite season for fashion. I love the layering, tights, the fact it's totally acceptable to wear an outfit comprising entirely of black. (Although I have been known to do this in summer.) 
So I have put together 7 staple pieces which you can mix around create different looks with, and links you can shop straight from this post.

This is such a versatile item that can be worn with jeans, a skirt or smart trousers, under a dress or jumper. I always have a few different styles of white shirt in my wardrobe. You can wear a white shirt with any of other pieces in this post!

Blue jeans are your best friend, they're flattering, comfortable, sexy and they go with EVERYTHING. Heels, trainers, boots - there's not a shoe that doesn't look good with a pair of well fit jeans. If you're not sure about what style suits you best, the best thing to do is go into a shop which stocks a variety of jeans and try different styles and sizes. Once you find your perfect pair, you'll wear them again and again and most likely buy them again once they've run their course. 


Black boots can be worn with any of the other items in this list. The thing I like most about having a pair of black boots is that you can wear them with black tights if you want to wear skirts or dresses as it gets colder. Go with a heel size which is most comfortable for you. I usually go mid-sized with my heel and if you prefer flats, the Chelsea boot is a perfect choice. Black Croc is my favourite.



This coat is such a great all-rounder, if you go with a neutral colour, you can wear this with anything. It's warm, functional, dress it up or down. Chose a length and cut that feels right to you. 


Is there anything better than a cosy jumper or cardigan when it starts to get chillier? Wear over shirts, tees, dresses, with skirts. I like to have a few oversized jumpers, a cardigan and some fitted roll-necks. (I'm so hyped turtle neck season is back, you don't even know.)



This is where you can be playful and insert some colour and pattern into your look. Leopard print is here to stay, not just a summer romance and it's actually a neutral, so will go with any colour. Satin midis are so beautiful and are my personal favourite at the moment, wear them with your favourite knit jumper or slogan tee and cardigan. Trainers, Boots, high heels all work with this look. 



Hat, scarf, gloves. You know what goes here. Choose the style and colours that you love. I really recommend a pair of leather gloves. They look great, keep you warm and will last you a lifetime. I've had mine for 7 years now and I still wear them every year.
