3 cheap fashion items that will transform your winter style 2018

These pieces will make winter dressing more exciting without blowing your budget.

The fashion crowd will always claim that winter fashion is so much better than summer. The cold weather does allow you to layer more pieces, giving you more mix and match options. But as most of us live in the real world without the luxury of an infinite budget, we can't buy a different coat and scarf for every day of the week.

When you're stuck with one coat (maybe two?) and a few scarves, winter dressing can get dull very quickly. And any upgrades like leather jackets or new boots cost a fortune.

So, we went hunting for cheap ways to transform your winter fashion so you have a few more outfit options. Read on to see the three cheap items that can up your style game and make dressing in winter fun again.


black stockings and denim

1. Black tights

Thanks to the resurgence of the 90s fashion, black tights couldn't be more cool right now. Not sold? Remember Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs rocking black tights and a denim skirt. Yeah. That could be you.

Plus, black tights up your winter wearable outfits significantly. Wear what you would in summer but just add tights and a coat. Easy as.

Try this pair by Scholl. We love them because they're warm, comfortable and they don't rip and tear (unless you attack them with a pair of scissors of course).


turtle neck layering

2. A thin turtle neck

Turtle neck jumpers can be sexy and totally stylish. But more than that, they can help you recycle warm weather outfits for winter. Take this tip from the cool girls: layer a thin, neutral-coloured turtle neck jumper under your summer singlet top or dress – now you have an on-trend winter look.

Check out the turtle necks at Uniqlo. They're made from warm merino wool and they're only $39.

3. Big earrings

It's hard to accent your outfits with jewellery during the colder months. Necklaces and bracelets aren't exactly visible when you're covered in big, long jumpers and scarves. So why not try the big earring trend?

Big gold hoops, coloured tassels and chandelier earrings are all hot items right now and can add a lot of life and style into your plain top and jeans outfit. The best part is you can pick up cheap super statement earrings from places like THE ICONIC, ASOS or Lovisa – we're talking under $10.
