5 Winter trends to wear right now!

By Sarah Makris

As I sit writing this post it is 12 degrees in Melbourne and all i can see out my windows is rain and grey skies.

So while I keep well away from my social media feeds of friends on beautiful beaches in exotic locations I’ve turned my focus to something that always cheer me up  – online shopping!!!!

And for those of us who Winter in July is a cold hard reality at least you have the winter sales!

Here’s 5 fashion trends to try right now.

Chunky Scarf

A winter scarf can completely change an outfit.  Look for an oversized and chunky scarf in a complimentary colour or play with different textures for a luxurious look.

Long Coat

A long coat can not only keep you really warm all over but it’s also a great statement piece that can be worn over absolutely anything from jeans to a suit . When choosing a coat look for quality fabrics, special details  and a comfortable fit.

Ankle boots

Ankle boots are my favourite type of shoes. There are so many heights to choose from and they look just as good with pants and they do with skirts. This season try a boot in a bright colour or with some fun embellishments such as studs, fringing or jewels.

Velvet Bags

I love velvet at the moment. I recently found an old pair of Scanlan Theodore velvet jeans in my closet I have hardly taken them off.   I’m also loving velvet bags. Check out the gorgeous Gucci and Chanel ranges.

Love it or hate it. Faux, real or vintage its everywhere at the moment.  Choose a scarf or beanie to add texture to your current look or go all out in a luxurious jacket.
