How To Build a Winter Capsule Wardrobe

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

 

If you live in a multi-season climate, there are certain habits you pick up when cultivating your wardrobe, most notably the habit of storing away certain seasonal pieces during their months of non-use. Flip flops, tank tops and shorts are squirreled away in the attic, while sweaters, scarves and hats make their way into your closet. Sometimes, it gets a little tedious. The way to solve this problem is to create a layered wardrobe that can easily transition from fall to winter! Here is how!

First, look through your closet. Keep pieces that are suitable for layering, including basic tank tops, button downs, and cardigans! Essentially, a lot of your spring wardrobe can STILL be used during the winter! What you would most likely pack away would be your open toed shoes, sandals, shorts, and skirts. The exception to the rule would be shoes you would wear to the office like these peep toe crystal heels from Chicastic.

Secondly, decide how many of those pieces you would like to use for the season. The easiest way to figure this out is to determine your color story. Remove everything that generally doesn’t fit in color wise.

Third, determine what you need for the rest of the season. You’ll definitely want to make sure you have thicker pieces for layering.

  1. Loose Fit Lightweight Shrug Style Casual Cardigan
  2. Drapey Open Front Cardigan
  3. Soft Plaid Square Blanket Neck Scarf Pashmina Shawl Wrap
  4. Crossbody Handbag

Stay Warm This Winter With Ponchos!

One of the hardest decisions to make when getting dressed in the winter is how to stay warm while being trendy. You don’t want to bundle up so much that you blend in with the neighborhood snowman. But you don’t want to be so cold that you become a snowman.

So what do you do?

Chicastic recommends a fashion trend that is super cute and practical…ponchos!

Just like a cardigan a poncho goes with almost any outfit. You can wear it with jeans, leggings or even a dress.

They are incredibly comfortable and it feels like you’re wearing a blanket. It’s perfect for a chilly office with the look of professionalism still present.

Check out a few ways Chicastic would wear a poncho:

DressPoncho

A black poncho over a dress keeps the outfit classic without looking bulky. Accentuate your look with a deep color envelope clutch.

 

BlackRedPoncho

Make a sleek all black outfit standout with a red poncho. It’s the only statement piece you’ll need!

 

DayPoncho

This white poncho is perfect for daytime shopping! Pair it with jeans for a bright look during your black Friday shopping.

Denim Skirts are Back!

As we all know denim is making a fierce comeback. We see it as jeans, shirts and now the ever so popular denim skirt.

Denim is and has always been one of those timeless classics. It’s a neutral. It goes with anything. It even looks good with other denim (if done well).

This fall season we are seeing the denim skirt come down a little longer than we were used to in the early 00’s (thank goodness). No more measuring to see if your skirt is too short for school. No more pulling down to make sure everything that should be covered is covered.Kathryn.Denim.10.21 Length is in!

This fall, pair your mid-thigh denim skirt with a loose fitting hi-lo layered top and an owl inspired watch necklace! This look combined with ankle booty heels can take you from class to an evening date with the simple addition of a statement handbag.

Bring back some of your favorite teenage looks with a more mature style at Chicastic!
