These are the winter trends that are already hanging in your closet

Information verified correct on December 9th, 2016

Fashion treasure might be right under your nose.

As much as we all like a solid shopping blitz at the start of the new season, there's also something ultra rewarding in scouting out hidden gems you might already have living in the back of your closet. It's basically treasure, right?

Finding new ways to style up your old favourites takes a little dedication, make time to sift through all of your clothing and pull everything out to try everything on. Look for pieces like midi skirts from last season, hoodies and sweats from years gone by that still have that certain charm or any beloved leather that's tucked away - waiting to make it's comeback appearance.

Sprucing up your ex-winter clothing will leave you feeling brand spanking new and save you cash to pur towards future investment buys; a quality winter coat or a leather boot update? Chances are you've got a handful of trends you can rethink, ready to go.


~ Winter trends for 2016 ~

punk1

Trend: Punk

Rummage for leather jackets and mini skirts, anything black and check-print; as seen on the runway, dark and rebellious are key to rocking the punk trend. You need not throw away torn stockings.

military1

Trend: Military

Look through your wardrobe for pieces with smart and sharp tailoring. Structured jackets, crisp long-sleeve shirts and wide leg pants can all fit into the military trend style for this season.

jersey

Trend: Jersey

Slim-fitting jersey dresses and turtleneck style tops are sleek and chic for winter. Pair with winter essentials like leather jackets, sneakers and a cute mini cross-body bag with a pop of colour.

feature

Trend: Marshmallow colours

Rethink your pastels this season; dig out the baby blues, candyfloss pinks and spring chick yellow shades. To update the trend look to acid tone accessories and nail varnish for extra punch.

sneakers

Trend: Sneakers

Since the fashion pack made sneakers cool on the FW circuit, it's probably a given you've got some kicks floating about. Wear with jeans, skirts - everything - or dress down fancy clothes with a slim-fit pair.

hoodies

Trend: Hoodies and sweats

Up-style hoodies and sweats with smart fitting trousers or a pleated midi skirt with heels. Wear under a jacket or add crystal-embellished brooch (mum's jewellery box will come in handy here!).

stripes

Trend: Breton stripes

Stripes are a classic found in every woman's wardrobe. To switch up the look ditch the nautical vibe and pair it with your punk style. Black and white stripes worn with leather and deep hues are on point.

western

Trend: Seventies

It's still in. Dig out your flares, find the fringing and work in similar colour palettes. Shades of mustards and maroons, navy, creams and white are the faithfuls, or mix it up with a blush pink or olive green.

velvet

Trend: Velvet

Find a velvet dress and hem it up, a short mini dress worn over stockings a cute pair of leather ankle boots is an after dark look of perfection. Reds lips are mandatory.
