As the days get colder and nights get longer, each morning snuggled in bed, we ask ourselves the usual question we ask each winter. Like, “Do I really need to leave by bed today?”, “Will my boss notice if I don’t turn up to work?”, “Do I really need a job?” and “Who will pay my rent?”. Once you finally realise you must leave to pay for you unnecessary lavish vices ($200 on Marc Jacobs underwear? “Oh underwear is a basic necessity” – confession of a shopaholic), you chatter out of bed and begin searching. Searching for something cozy yet sophisticated, with all the benefits of your doona minus the caterpillar shape 😉
The key to styling for winter is layers, you need to make sure you are not going to be too cold in the brisk air, but not steaming indoors (always a challenge in our office!). Our Betty Biker Jacket is the perfect accessory for any occasion. Here we have paired it for a night out with the gals, both the Wicked Wrap Dress and the Holly A-line are long sleeves providing an extra layer against the icy breezes.
The Cape is back and here to stay! We have paired our chic Gina Cape with some pastel dresses. Who says you can’t wear colour in winter? Both the Eliza and Katherine High-Neck Midis are great for any season, matched with our cape for a special Sunday lunch down on the Peninsula. Like the Betty Biker Jacket, the Gina Cape is great dressed up or down, slap on some distressed jeans and a knit and you’ve got any killer outfit that is sure to impress your mates.
And Finally, Our latest favourite layered look is our Just As You Are Cape, it’s military vibe with the gold detail creates a grungy yet sophisticated style. Here we are paired it with our Eliza Jumpsuit and my favourite As You Wish Long Sleeve Lace Midi for those Friday Night Date Nights in the citayy. It works with both long and short outfits as it can also double for a dress with knee high boots (swoon!).
Layers is all about playing around with what works. Stockings are always another great way to warm up over winter, so you can still wear your beloved dresses! And for all you lucky girls out there still wrapped in your cozy beds today, we kind of low key hope you step in gum, or loose your keys. (In the nicest possible way)
Keep warm ladies!
