Australia is now well into the autumn season, and this means one thing fashion-wise: it’s time to don those layers of clothing. Layering is an invaluable fashion tip for men and women, alike, especially as the season becomes much colder, heading into winter. While the usually hot and dry Australian weather has people running around in shorts and skivvies, the chill in the air makes us reach for our wraps, scarves, and jackets.
Fashion gurus recommend these tried-and-tested fashion tips for women who wish to stay warm and toasty, while still looking their best during the colder seasons of the year.
Over the knee boots
This style of footwear is definitely a classic wherever you might go. This season, suede and leather over the knee boots still reign supreme. A slouchy pair will work best with dresses and skirts, but if you’re more of the jeans-type of girl, a skin-tight pair worn over jeans can create a classy look. Get a pair in neutral colours like browns, blacks and beige as you can easily mix-and-match them with items you already have in your wardrobe.
Take your daily eight-to-five outfit on the next level with soft suits. This season, well-cut blazers and flattering trousers in softer fabrics are on top of every career girl and fashionista’s list. It helps keep you warmer as the season transitions to winter while making sure that you look like the girl boss that you are.
A pop of colour
The cold season tends to pull our moods down as we spend more and more time indoors. Lift your mood by adding a touch of colour to your outfit! Add a colourful wrap or scarf to a monochrome outfit—it’s an easy way to get warm and brighten up your look. Plus, be sure to choose one that is made from quality material, such as premium cashmere, so it serves to keep you warm aside from perking up your ensemble.
You can also wear brightly coloured jewellery like earrings or necklace in citrus colour like lemon yellow or bright orange. You can likewise focus that pop of colour to your feet with a colourful pair of socks or shoes in an eye-catching hue.
The colder months of autumn and winter necessitate functional fashion – that is to say, clothing that will efficiently keep the chill at bay. But, there’s no reason these outfits cannot be fun and fashion-forward, as well.
