Winter 2023 Capsule Wardrobe
The start of a new year calls for a refresh! At the start of this year, maybe you’re rethinking how to approach your style, cleaning out your closet of unworn items, or looking to update and elevate your collection of winter wardrobe essentials altogether. Here’s where our list of Winter 2023 Capsule Wardrobe styles will come in handy! If you read our Fall 2022 Capsule Wardrobe, you’ll see some repeated styles in this guide. Our stylists are experts at helping you invest in the timeless, long-lasting pieces you’ll love to re-wear season after season. Pared-back but never boring, we consider these versatile pieces to be foundational for any closet.
Classic Patterned Sweater
Sweaters are a must in the winter season. We suggest adding a classic print such as a stripe or animal print. Picking a print with neutral colors allows for easy pairing with leggings, jeans, skirts, and classic coats.
Turtlenecks are the foundational heroes of a cold-weather wardrobe; they’re warm, sophisticated, and stylish when worn on their own or layered. The best part? They look just as sophisticated dressed up or down.
Just because it is winter, doesn’t mean you can’t show some skin. This season we are seeing sweaters with unique cut-outs at the shoulders, clavicle, and even open-back details. You can feel super sexy wearing one of these styles with a skirt or with jeans.
Classic sweaters like these are truly year-round staples. Lightweight crew neck or V-neck sweaters make for easy layering under jackets and blazers or over blouses and button-ups.
A patterned blouse is a wardrobe must-have! It is a versatile piece that you can wear to work, date night, or brunch with the girls. Picking a printed style allows for easy pairing with the different colored pants and jackets in your wardrobe.
Often times bold, colorful items get left out of “essential” roundups, but it’s time to reconsider. Add your favorite bright hue to your capsule wardrobe to bring life, energy, and personality to your looks. Beat the winter blues and get an instant mood boost by adding a bright hue to the mix.
An underrated wardrobe staple is the classic knit vest. An easy layering piece that you can throw on over your favorite layering knits, blouses, or sleek button-ups. You can even style it without a layer underneath – we love a chic 2-for-1 style!
Blazers have become an essential wardrobe piece, whether you are wearing them to the office or casually. They add chic sophistication to any look. Stay warm and stylish by opting for a tweed style this winter.
Who doesn’t love a cozy cardigan when it’s cold outside?? At home and beyond, it’s a great throw-on-and-go wardrobe capsule piece. In the winter, select a longer style to help keep both your arms and legs warm.
Despite its sporty origins, the puffer has quickly become an important outerwear piece. Not just for athleisure outfits, the puffer can be styled with jeans, and even dresses for your casual occasions.
Fur/Faux Fur Jacket
Welcome in the cold-weather season by wrapping yourself up in a fabulous faux-fur coat! Besides being extremely cozy, faux-fur/fur jackets are effortlessly elegant. Not just for formal occasions anymore, style your fur jackets with jeans for a statement night out look.
Classic Neutral Coat
Is any winter wardrobe complete without a coat? Going with a classic, neutral style makes it a foundation piece that can go with anything in your wardrobe.
If there is room in your closet for an extra coat, we highly suggest adding a statement style to your outerwear collection. Whether it’s a pattern, bold color, or unique texture, adding a statement piece can transform your look from basic to brilliant.
For the ideal middle ground between workout sets and formal attire, you’ll want a pair of black leggings that aren’t for working out. New styles with elevated fabrics like faux suede and leather, make it easy to be comfy and stylish this winter.
Winter White Jeans
Think white is just for spring and summer, think again! White pants and jeans are classic and timeless. Pair them with other shades of white and cream for chic, elegant looks, or pair them with your darker winter hues to add contrast and interest.

This sexy and feminine jean silhouette gives the illusion of longer legs, and is flattering for almost every body type! You can’t go wrong with selecting boots as your shoe choice for these jeans, which makes getting dressed even easier.
Leather/Faux Leather Skirt
We often think of leather jackets and pants as staples, but so are leather skirts! Made popular in recent years by celebrities such as Meghan Markle, we don’t see this style going anywhere. It’s the perfect desk-to-dinner style that can be worn with blazers or sexy tops and sweaters. Too cold for bare legs? Style the skirt with tights!
A solid-colored sweater dress can be easily accessorized with belts, scarves, or jewelry for endless possibilities! Depending on your outwear and shoes, you can dress it up or down for a variety of occasions.
