The farewell to warmer days is tough. It’s a bittersweet time of year and there’s no sugarcoating 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.
Considering we're also social distancing and isolating at home, it's no surprise that cosy, comfortable loungewear is one of the biggest hits this winter.
You can shop all kinds of styles from most major online retailer - whether it's a minimal colour way, a bold hue or a funky printed graphic.
Love You Culotte Knit Sweater and Pants Lounge Set
Tie Front T-shirt & Trouser Co-ord Set
Morning Meeting Knitted Ribbed Jogger Lounge Set
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.
Vela Wide Leg Pants
Boucle Midi Double-Breasted Coat
Laila Jumper Beige
This is perfect for anyone who really feels the cold. Puffer jackets are the unexpected trend this season that even the most fashionable girls are wearing. Go classic and try a black style or be daring and opt for something in a bold red or blue.
Classic Puffer Jacket
Funnel Neck Puffer Jacket
COLLUSION Unisex oversized cape puffer jacket in black
They're back. Whether you like it or not, they're back. We on the Finder Shopping team are actually ready to give flares another go. Not full-on 70s bellbottoms of course, but flares that are slightly straighter. You'll be surprised by how slimming a pair of flares can be if you get the right cut.
Bershka flared pants with seam detail in black
Rolla's Eastcoast Flare Tash Blue
Coated Flare Jeans
90s shoulder bag
You've seen it all over your Instagram feed and on just about every influencer and fashion blogger. The 90s shoulder bag is a trend that's been around for a few months and there's no sign of it slowing down.
We're obsessed because it can turn any boring outfit into something totally cute and chic. You can pair it with a casual and cosy loungewear set or dress it up with a knitted dress and knee-high boots.
ASOS DESIGN 90s weave shoulder bag in black
PETA & JAIN PORTIA CHOC CROC
ASOS DESIGN ruched 90s shoulder bag in black
This trend doesn't seem to disappear, no matter what the season is.
When the weather gets cooler, the matching sets get better. You can opt for the boss-lady pant suit, a funky going-out set or something comfy like a matching tracksuit.
Love Game Knit Set Green
Cosmic Latte Two Piece Set Mocha
Leon Ribbed Two Piece Set White
Knit dresses are one of those versatile items you just need in your winter closet.
If the weather is just below average, you can pair it with a leather jacket and sneakers. But if the chill is really coming through, layer up with stockings, boots and a coat. The outfit options are truly endless!
Brave Soul roll neck colourblock cable knit jumper dress
New Look ribbed knitted jumper dress in grey
Wrap Batwing Knitted Midi Dress
Deep, rich greens are colours you'll be seeing everywhere this winter and we could not be more on-board. This colour suits just about everyone. It's great on dark skin and pale skin. It looks fab on blondes and gorgeous on brunettes. Plus, it's such a nice change from the winter staples of black and camel.
ZAZU MIDI SKIRT FOREST GREEN
Rib Lettuce Edge Long Sleeve
Forest Rain Dress
This is certainly one of the biggest trends of autumn and winter in Australia. Every blogger, influencer and fashionable celeb is wearing checks.
If you're going to pick a trend to try, this is the one. Why not bring out your inner Cher Horowitz and trying this trend in a matching skirt and blazer?
Square Are You Now Check Pants
Beige Check Print Balloon Sleeve Ruched Mini Dress
Last year, over-the-knee boots were all the rage, thanks to the likes of Ariana Grande.
This year, the shoes are getting lower and we are obsessing over boots that hit just below the knee. You need to jump on this trend ASAP.

Black Point Toe Stiletto Knee High Boots
