Finally it´s time to show you my Winter Capsule Wardrobe! Today I am kicking it off with shoes and outerwear. For me these are the most important items for Winter. Why? Because they make all the difference when it comes to being warm and cosy during the freezing cold days 🙂 Without more rambling, let´s start with the outerwear!
I got this beauty last year, because I really wanted a light coloured, warm jacket for Winter. And I have to say, it is quite cosy and warm to wear indeed 🙂
Although the shearling jacket keeps me relatively warm, it is not suitable for those extremely cold winter days. And I did not have any other jacket that was warm enough for that type of weather. A huge gap in my wardrobe that I wanted to fill this year! Being warm is so, so important to me! ( !!!!!!! ) I also wanted a jacket that was not filled with down and feathers, but synthetic fibres, because geese get plucked alive for their feathers, which causes them a lot of pain and leaves them with bleeding skin, so cruel! To find what I was looking for was not an easy task, let me tell you! But finally, after weeks of searching, I found the perfect parka. It´s from Carhartt, incredibly warm, and with synthetic filling.
Sometimes you need a smarter jacket option for fancier occasions, like the church visit on Christmas Eve, or when you just want to feel a bit more put together. This is when I wear this navy wool coat. It still is quite warm, because of a quilted lining and the high percentage of wool in the fabric. The faux fur collar adds some extra charme to it. I actually got it in the sale at H&M four years ago….
A jacket that is quite on trend this season. I wanted a leopard faux fur coat for years and finally found the perfect one at Asos last year. The flared sleeves are just gorgeous and I love how big and chunky the leopard print is! It is not that warm though, so not suitable for the really cold days, but nice to make a statement when the temperatures are not as freezing….
Let´s move on to shoes…
Finding Shoes that are suitable for Winter AND look cute, is almost impossible. There are barely any options available anyway and those mostly look like nothing I would want to wear. So I was super happy when I found this faux fur lined sneakers. Yep you heard that right, I said faux fur lined, how amazing is that?! They keep my feet so warm, look really cool and match most of my outfits. Super happy I added them to my wardrobe!
I have them for at least two and a half years now and they are one of my most worn shoes. They are comfy, even with thick socks, which is so important when it´s cold, look just amazing with casual, as well as with fancier outfits, and can handle the Winter weather really well.
Yes I own a pair of them. I have them for seven years now and they still are in very good condition. Nothing, I reapeat, nothing keeps my feet as warm and cosy as these! It´s like walking inside a fluffy cloud!
These are my only fancy shoe option for Winter. They have a high block heel, which is amazingly comfortable due to the plateau the boots have. They look so stylish, just look at that gold zipper detail! They also are great with some nice jeans for a casual vibe….
