Winter wardrobe capsules change according to where you live, so for some of you who live in the snow, this blog post might not apply to you. If that is the case, you can still check out our winter fleece collection! However, for those of you who live in warmer climates (hello Californians) or are planning on going on a winter vacation in a tropical local, today we've got you covered with our winter capsule wardrobe.

Let's explore some ideas to create the perfect winter capsule wardrobe that not only keeps you warm but also protects your skin from harmful UV rays too!

8 Ideas to Help You Build a Winter Capsule Wardrobe with UPF

1. Classic UPF Rash Guard

Start your winter capsule wardrobe with a classic UPF 50+ rash guard. Choose a versatile color that can easily mix and match with other pieces. A long-sleeved rash guard provides more UV coverage and can be paired with swim leggings or layered under a cozy sweater for added warmth.

Hot tip: UV Skinz's rash guards are more comfortable than a surf rash guard so you can opt to wear one while out walking under the sun, on a hike, or while mountain bike riding too!

2. Stylish UPF Swim Leggings

Our swim leggings, which can also be used as pants too, offer a flattering fit and lots of sun protection. We love that you can use leggings as a stable in your everyday winter wardrobe. You can pair these leggings with a top, hoodie, or even under a swim dress for your winter swim sessions. 

Hot tip: Choose swim leggings in a solid color like black, blue, or maroon, so they're easier to match other pieces of clothing with when getting dressed. 

3. Convertible UPF Swim Dress

For a versatile and chic option, consider a convertible UPF 50+ swim dress for swimming, lounging by the pool, or walking on the beach. You can also convert it into a stylish tunic when paired with leggings. Look for dark colors or winter-themed patterns for a seasonal touch.

Hot Tip: Throw this in your car for those spontaneous beach days when you need some sun coverage on the go!

4. Cozy UPF Hoodie 

A UPF hoodie is a must-have for chilly winter days. Choose a soft, breathable fabric that provides warmth without compromising on sun protection. Throw it on over your swimwear or pair it with jeans or yoga pants for a casual winter look.

5. UPF 50+ Accessories: Hats and Scarves

Don't forget to accessorize! Accessories add an extra layer of style to your winter capsule wardrobe. UPF 50+ hats and scarves add an extra layer of protection for your face and neck. Opt for wide-brimmed hats for a touch of glamour and choose scarves in complementary colors to tie your winter swimwear ensemble together.
