By Sarah | Scanlan Theodore Autumn Winter 2016
One of the best things about living in Melbourne is its Winters. Not so much the cold days and nights but the amazing Winter clothes that we actually get to wear. Hats, boots, coats, gloves, nothing is off limits when it come to shopping for a Melbourne Winter.
So while it’s not yet cold ( It’s actually 34 degrees here in Melbourne today) the stores are filling up with new season Autumn Winter collections.
Angela and I spent a few hours at Scanlan Theodore in Armadale this week to see the the launch of the latest range for Autumn Winter 2016. We both agreed it was a beautiful collection and we found so many (actually more like too many) fantastic pieces that we just had to have.
We’ve noticed that some items sell out so quickly that they never make it to the website and others just take a little longer to reach the online store. One of the items that we can’t see on site, but loved in store, was the khaki green lace up flat shoes featuring gold studs as well as the khaki green ankle boot ( pictured below in black). We recommend calling or going into the store check them out.
Below is my top 5 must have items
Crepe Knit Jacket
Scanlan Theodore ‘own’ crepe knit. Many have tried to copy but fail to deliver on the cuts and quality when it comes to this fabric staple. Although I have enough crepe knit to last a life time and I really don’t need anymore this is on my top 5 list because it ticks all the boxes with its modern, classic, stylish and beautiful cut. Also patting myself on the back here for choosing something that’s not black!
Crepe Knit Cape – Navy
This crepe knit cape is my absolute favourite piece in the whole collection. So modern, stylish and surprisingly functional. Great over pants and boots and perfect for hiding any extra bulges that appear during the Winter months.
Striped Floral Weave Dress
This is a great dress for the office and flattering due to the scuba fabric. With ankle boots it looks more modern.
Leather Washed Biker
I have been looking for the perfect biker jacket and I found it this season – hooray!. I love the length texture and detail on this jacket. There are 3 versions, but for taller girls this is worth a try.
We loved the shoes this season particularly the ankle boot in khaki.
