The weather is definitely starting to change here in Melbourne and that means it’s time to bring out your best winter wardrobe essentials. From luxe leather, to oversized blazers, cut outs and puffer jackets, there are several trends which are set to dominate this season.
Here are some of our favourites.
Buttery leather is well and truly everywhere this season and not just in the classic biker jacket. Leather has become the favourite material for all your winter essentials including trench coats, straight leg trousers, shirt dresses and belted jackets.

From burnt orange and olive hues to paisley prints, the 70s are making a comeback just in time for the cooler weather. Bellbottom flares, corduroy pants, knitted polos and cardigan sweaters in neutral tones can easily be paired together for a full ode to the decade or worn separately for a more casual look.

Supersized and Slouchy
Exaggerated proportions and oversized silhouettes are out in full force this autumn. Brands are embracing slouchy coats and suiting in a range of colourways allowing customers to easily adopt this effortless trend into their wardrobes.

Although cut outs can be scary at first thought for some, the eye-catching silhouettes are here to stay so it’s all about finding the right piece for you.
From delicate slashes in knitted dressed to intricate peak a boo cut outs in soft knit jumpers or halter neck tops, there is a style for everyone and for every occasion.

The puffer jacket has really grown into a wardrobe staple and with people wanting to dress for comfort first following the pandemic, the outerwear is being paired with everything. Wear your favourite cropped puffer with a knitted jumper and a great pair of trousers or pop on your best loungewear and a chunky boot with your oversized puffer for a perfect winter look.
