Australian winter fashion trends to try in 2019

The trends you should wear when winter strikes in 2019. We have you covered, literally.

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.

Check prints

This is certainly one of the biggest trends of autumn and winter in Australia. Every blogger, influencer and fashionable celeb is wearing checks, and almost every catwalk show at Fashion Week Australia this year featured 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?

Animal-prints

Walk on the wild side this winter. Animal prints made a huge splash last summer and are now one of the bigger trends for this winter. We're talking snake prints, leopard print and tiger stripes. Consider these patterns a new neutral because you can wear them with just about anything and any colour - slip skirts, flared jeans, big jumpers. Anything goes!

If you're a bit wary and not ready to buy a top-to-toe tiger print dress, start by adding accessories. A pair of snake print boots or a leopard print scarf are easy ways to wear the trend if you want to try it out before committing to more.


Faux-fur

Trends are rarely both fun and practical. This is a rare exception so we are very much on board. Keep the winter chill at bay by piling on a fluffy faux fur to keep yourself cosy. And why not ditch your regular blacks and whites and opt for something in red, purple or burgundy? Since most of your winter wardrobe is probably black, white, grey or denim, a pop of colour can revitalise your style.

Why not try two trends at once and get a faux fur in animal print?


Forest green

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, its such a nice change from the winter staples of black and camel.

In case your're worried about colour-clashes, you'd be surprised by just how much of your wardrobe actually matches with forest green. Just look at this picture of Tash Sefton in her green coat.


Pant-suits

If you haven't already caught on, pant-suits are kind of a big deal for winter. This suprisingly wearable trend is not just classy and figure-flattering - but it's also a lot of fun. And fashion should be fun!

We love candy colours for our pant-suits. We're talking lemon yellow, bubblegum pink and lavender lilac. You can check out our favourite pant-suits from fashion week if you want even more inspo.


Flares

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's be surprised by how slimming a pair of flares can be if you get the right cut.


Teddy coats

It's the cosiest trend this winter and once you try one on you won't want to take it off. Go traditional and buy one in a classic camel or go dark and opt for black. We've picked our favourite teddy coats already, all you need to do is add to cart.


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.


Winter 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.


Puffer jackets

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.

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. Or go all in cream or all grey for a high-end classic look. It's comfort slash chic and you'll turn heads wherever you are.


White boots

This modern incarnation of '60s mod style is one of the coolest trends this winter. Life's too boring in all black, so swap your standard ankle boots for a white pair. It's one of the easiest ways to elevate your style this season. We love this trend so much that we've already found 50 of the coolest white boots to buy for winter.
