BACK with another Affordable H&M Capsule Wardrobe…this time it’s a WINTER Capsule Wardrobe! This one is much more casual than my Fall & Summer Capsule Wardrobes because let’s be serious…we’re all pretty much living in loungewear…even more than the past few seasons because it’s just too cold to go anywhere. But don’t worry when you have to leave the house I’ve got you covered!
So as always I included a variety of outfits – some work-appropriate if you’re back in the office, PLENTY work from home appropriate that are put together on top. And also more casual on bottom, lots of outfit ideas with jeans AND LOTS of loungewear looks that are comfy and cozy but you can still go out in.
I picked 25 pieces including four coats, LOTS of sweaters, boots, leggings and more! I’m sure plenty of this stuff you guys already have similar items in your closet. But H&M‘s price point is so amazing that you won’t mind picking up an item or two if you’re missing anything. I’m also LOVING the color palette I chose for this Winter Capsule Wardrobe. It’s filled with warm neutrals and basic blacks with a sprinkle of subtle pops of color and lots of cozy texture. I think no matter what your style is, this winter capsule wardrobe will give you plenty of outfit ideas this season.
I have a lot of fun creating these capsule wardrobes and so far H&M has been the best retailer to use because they have great prices, a variety of sizes. And I love the clothes, but if you’d like me to make one using a different store let me know!!
H&M Winter Capsule Wardrobe Items:
1. Satin Crop Blouse ($17.99)
The “going out” top is back and if I never thought I’d be excited about it. But the 2022 version of the “going out” top is much more sophisticated than the 2007 one. And this satin crop blouse is exactly the type of top you should be reaching for to wear this your jeans this winter.
2. Rhinestone-button Knit Cardigan ($19.99)
Cardigans are having a moment this year and this relaxed fit light beige one with rhinestone buttons is calling my name. It can be dressed up or dressed down and the touch of sparkle is reminiscent of the holidays, but not overwhelming.
3. Oversized Turtleneck Sweater ($29.99)
Is it even winter without a new turtleneck sweater? Didn’t think so. I’m a sucker for winter white (or cream in this case) and this cozy sweater is perfect for just about every occasion this season.
4. V-neck Sweater ($19.99)
I’m a sucker for an oversized v-neck sweater and this one comes in 4 colors. In fact, I can guarantee by the end of the season I’ll probably own all 4.
5. Oversized Turtleneck Sweater ($34.99)
Another oversized turtleneck, this one in a light sage green and also a little longer than the cream one I included above.
6. Rib-knit Dress ($34.99)
An ankle length knit dress is the perfect type of dress to add to your wardrobe this winter. It’s comfortable, perfect for a night out or work. And it’s also perfect for layering under a sweater, coat or blazer.
7. Long Satin Wrap-front Dress ($59.99)
Every capsule wardrobe needs a fancy dress and this draped satin dress is just that for my 2022 winter capsule wardrobe. In fact, I love the dark red-brown color and fit on this one.
8. Flounce-trimmer Chiffon Blouse ($29.99)
This airy, mint green chiffon blouse is the perfect work or play top for winter, and will also transition perfectly for Spring.
9. Creased Pants ($24.99)
Like I mentioned above I LOVE winter white and since everyone already has a pair of black dress pants in their closet I also figured I’d push you out of your comfort zone a little bit with this white pair. And if white pants aren’t your thing don’t worry…all the outfits I created with these work just as well with black (or any other neutral) pants.
10. Straight High Ankle Jeans ($29.99)
H&M jeans are some of my favorite and these slightly distressed dark denim blue jeans are also perfect for winter.
11. Faux Fur Coat ($79.99)
If you don’t have a faux fur coat now is the type to add one to your closet. This brown coat is super soft faux fur, knee length and also the perfect topper to keep to dress up or down.
12. Wool-blend Coat ($249.00)
Looking for the MOST CLASSIC winter coat of all time? Look no further than the timeless camel calf length coat. This will never go out of style and is also a piece of clothing you will never regret buying.
13. Hooded Puffer Coat ($69.99)
You can’t survive winter in the Northeast without a puffer coat. I’m partial to a knee length coat with a hood and I also love that this one has a two way zipper. So you can unzipper this coat from the bottom to make it easier to walk in.
14. Brushed Twill Shirt Jacket ($39.99)
I recently professed my love for “shackets” (check it out here in case you missed it) and this black and white plaid shirt jacket is a great price point if you’re trying out the trend for the first time and don’t want to invest yet.
15. Seamless Leggings ($24.99)
High waist, seamless, extra comfortable leggings are a must for winter (and every other season). Want them in other colors? They’re also available in Dusty Rose & Dark Taupe.
16. Quilted Flats ($24.99)
These chic quilted ballet flats are so sleek and easy to wear.
17. Long Boots ($79.99)
Faux leather over the knee boots are exactly the type of boots you need this winter. They not only are chic and wearable, but they also act as another layer to keep your legs warm when it’s really cold.
18. Ankle Boots ($34.99)
I love an ankle boot and these soft, stretchy ones are so perfect for keeping you warm since they huge the leg!
19. Platform Chelsea-style Boots ($49.99)
These light neutral platform boots are having a MOMENT this season and I’m kinda loving them! I really never thought I would because they’re not really my style. BUT they have grown on me and not only they really functional they go with so much.
20. Black Shoulder Bag ($24.99)
I love that this quilted bag has an adjustable strap so it can be worn as a crossbody and a shoulder bag. And you can also tuck the strap in to use it as a clutch.
21. Plaid Scarf ($17.99)
It’s impossible to survive the winter without a scarf and this neutral plaid one will be a perfect addition to pretty much every outfit idea I included here!
22. Knit Hat ($9.99)
This soft knit hat is the perfect neutral accessory to all the winter outfit ideas I put together. If you’re also looking for a pop of color this hat is also available in a bunch of colors.
23. Triple Strand Necklace ($9.99)
This gold layered necklace is simple enough that you could wear it every single day this season without getting sick of it. And it’s also affordable enough that if you do (or if it gets tarnished) it can go right in the trash.
24. Gold Rings ($7.99)
I couldn’t help but include a second piece of jewelry in this Winter wardrobe round up and this ring set caught my eye.
25. White Shoulder Bag ($24.99)
Quilted bags are IN and this white one goes with so many of the winter looks I created.
