Your guide to the ultimate winter capsule wardrobe

09 December, 2012
Rather than spending a small fortune on a completely new wardrobe this winter, shop smart and buy some vital pieces to see you through the season. The knack to this is creating a winter capsule wardrobe of essentials and key looks, and then building from there if you need to. This makes staying stylish fun yet affordable. Here’s what you should include in your capsule wardrobe.

Black jeans
Black jeans are a wardrobe staple. They’re chic, stylish and go with virtually anything. If you’re looking for versatility, go for skinny which means you’ll always have the choice of dressing them up with some heels or going ‘off-duty’ with flats. There’s a great choice of black jeans at Very.

Cable knit jumper
It might seem obvious but nothing beats a good old-fashioned cable knit jumper. Not only are they ridiculously warm, they’re also back in fashion. Wear over a fitted skirt or with jeans for a practical but on-trend look. All the big name high street brands have a great range of cable knits, so keep an eye out.

Biker jacket
A biker jacket is a great way for you to be able to stand out and alternate looks in winter months, especially when nobody gets to see what you’re wearing under your coat. Wear over jeans with chunky heels for an up-to-date look. Or channel Kate Moss and accessorise your jacket with grey denim, and a rock star boyfriend.

Ankle boots
This winter, ankle boots are the new knee-high boots. Go for a pair with chunky heels as they match well with jeans, dresses and skirts and wear them with thick socks to give definition to your ankle and, of course, to keep your toes warm!
