AW19 Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been having a little look at the new Rowan collections and thinking about how my faves would fit into my capsule wardrobe. I haven’t mentioned capsule wardrobes on here much recently… because I feel like mine has run away from me a bit!

I’m in a rut of feeling like I have nothing to wear (particularly when the weather is extreme) but I don’t have time to “make” the wardrobe I want all in one go.

Having broken my fast fashion shopping habits – I don’t want to slip back into having more clothes than I need, having clothes I don’t wear or buying garments that are unsustainable/unethical on impulse. But it’s really difficult being disciplined!

What I do really need is time. Time to make things and (in the meantime) time to shop sensibly for items I don’t have time to make! I want to spend my money in good places (any tips on UK based ethical and sustainable shops would be most welcome!) and make sure garments will fit into my wardrobe and last for years.

So while I’m planning my dream wardrobe… it’s the perfect time to see where the knitwear gaps are and plan some new projects! Here are a few things from the new Mode at Rowan collection that I think would work beautifully in my capsule wardrobe…

002 Cardigan in Kid Classic by Martin Storey.

014 Sweater in Kid Classic by Georgia Farrell.

016 Sweater in Alpaca Soft DK by Georgia Farrell.

Aren’t they lovely?! Are you working on your winter wardrobe yet?
