Australian winter fashion trends to try in 2018

The trends you should wear when winter strikes in 2018. We have you covered, literally.

The farewell to warmer days is tough. It’s a bittersweet time of year and there’s no sugar coating it. But the change of season also signals a few months of cosiness and comfort ahead, and you can look forward to switching up your wardrobe for something a little more...put together. Because let’s be honest, winter dressing takes a minute or two extra to achieve the polished “I got this” vibe.

With the runway shows long forgotten, let us give you the recap on what we’re all wearing this season to keep warm and look hot.


The classics

Over the knee boots

Who are we kidding? These are still cool and you still need a pair. Over the knee boots is one winter trend that’s been on rotation for a couple of years now and we’re pleased about it. You can buy them in suede or leather and go for either a slouchy or skin-tight style. You should aim for nice neutrals that will make them easy to style with most of your wardrobe.

The fluted dress

It’s mid length, it’s liquid soft and it falls nicely around your body. Some might even mistake this number as something you would’ve worn during those previously mentioned warmer days, but they would be incorrect. This is the perfect number to wear styled under that big cosy knit or cool chick leather jacket. Complete the look with cute boots and accessories and you're set to go.


Soft suiting

This is perfect for your day-to-day work get-up. Elegant slacks and a well-cut blazer are what you should be looking towards for warmer wear. It’s flattering and you can easily chuck on a big coat over the top when you step outside each day.


Waist it

Give your outfit more of a feminine touch this season by cinching in the waist and letting your silhouette shine. Got a cute oversized coat that needs an update? Looking to jazz up a top you’ve had tucked into your closet? Gather your box shift dresses and mid-length slips then wrap a nice belt around your midsection for an instant outfit change.


The one-colour outfit

Pick a tone and dress in it head-to-toe. Wild, we know. Try a mint or deep peach tiered in cotton and silks for something a little different. It’s comfort slash chic and you’ll turn heads wherever you are.


Creamy leathers

Butter soft leathers? Yes, please. But this season, the trend’s got a ladylike spin with its skirting and shirting. Mix it with suiting for a hint of edge and try out new hues. A light blue is a win this winter.


Colour pop

If you’re all about the monochrome (we are too), add a splash of colour to your accessories to brighten everything up. A bold pair of earrings or socks will work for an easy win.


Denim and denim

It’s never going anywhere, so if you haven’t caught on, now is the time to do so. Last season it was flares and this season it’s baggy, but whatever your preference is, find the perfect cut and buy some. Then buy them in another colour. Add a matching jacket into the equation and you’re the best dressed human in the room.


White whites

Winter can be dull and dark. You wake up to gloomy skies and most often you leave the office in the dark - all while wearing dark palettes. Give yourself an instant mood boost when you roll through winter wearing white whites. This is a simple trick to lighten the mood of the people around you and yourself.


The woven high-neck top

What we mean here is a turtleneck top made from a knit. These are easy additions to your wardrobe when you need to act fast, aka when you’ve snoozed multiple times and you’re already late for work.


Gingham

This is one of those trends that literally reaches across everything. You can find a cute gingham printed miniskirt and tapered high-waisted trousers as well as an abundance of cute tops, skirts, dresses and accessories. Coming in red, navy, black and white, pink or pale blue, it’s cute and you need it. Invest in one gingham-printed piece today.


The smaller trends

  • Bomber jackets. They were big last year and they're still in this year too.
  • Velvet. Whether deep midnight blue, rich red, emerald green or black, velvet is a winter fabric we can't get enough of. If you're looking to ease into the trend, start with a velvet choker.
  • Faux-fur coats. Be adventurous, try a pop of bright blue or jewel green.
