Last Days Of Summer... 7 Trends To Put The Sizzle In Winter
The sun is still shining, but a new fashion season is upon us. These 7 cool summer trends will keep you looking hot through winter too...
Given the recent heatwave we have have experienced in Sydney and many other states in Oz, I know it might be hard to get your head around the fact that Autumn/Winter product is already dropping into stores! To help you navigate your way into the new season, here are the 7 summer trends set to stick around for the cooler months too, and my tips on how to style them for the new season ahead.
From patches to embroidery and gem-encrusted motifs, tricked up denim is your ticket to street-style cred. Give this look winter appeal by wearing with a pair of over-the-knee boots and khaki trench.
The Logo Tee
With everyone from Gucci to Mambo doing a version of this 90s-inspired trend, it's a clear winner for winter too. When the weather cools down, rock this combo anew by throwing a blazer over the top and adding a wide-leg trouser or jeans to the bottom.
The Bold Boho Dress
Ruffles, pleats, a cinched in waist and smocking detail, the bold boho dress is the complete package for summer or winter. Toughen it up for the cooler climate ahead with edgy footwear - think studded boots, lace-up heels or tricked-up flats.
The best thing about one-piece swimwear is that it can double as a body suit. Wear this chic striped one-piece under a white button-down shirt tucked into a cropped trouser or fluted skirt to bring some Parisian chic to your winter look. Slip on a pair of mules to complete your outfit.
The Statement Knit
Forget keeping it simple, the statement knit is definitely a winter must-have. Fringing, lace-up details, exaggerated shapes and bright colours take this humble staple to another level. Keep your style fresh my teaming with luxe high-shine fabrics and of course denim and leather for casual and cool.
Keeping the chill out has never looked so good because this season is all about wearing your style on your sleeve. Balloon, ruffled, bell - anything goes. A bit of clever layering will give a white cotton bell-sleeve dress a winter makeover. Pop a fine high-neck knit underneath and a cape over the top to keep your sleeves on show but the cold out.
The Unstructured Blazer
With minimal chic still a huge trend from the coming season, your trusty unstructured blazer will still be a go-to when the cooler weather blows in. Perfect with leather pants and a ribbed knit, classic shirt or simple tee.
