We love winter fashions.  You can do so much more with your clothes in winter.  You can dress up jeans by adding boots, a pashmina and jacket for a simple but chic look.  One thing I learnt from my travels and especially during my time in Beijing is that is it all about the layers when dressing for winter.  Beijing is freezing cold and you have to layer up to keep warm when outside.  As everything is centrally heated, you then have to de layer quickly to avoid overheating when you are inside!

Sydney’s winter is not this extreme but layers can add some interesting details to your clothes that you can’t do with your summer clothes.  It also makes it easy to take off the layers as needed in heated shops and restaurants.

So how to you layer effectively?  Layering is not about adding bulk, it is about using clothes to keep warm and look good.

For casual wear try wearing jeans with boots or closed in shoes, a shirt and/or jumper and then add a pashmina and a jacket or cardigan in a great colour for impact.  Pashminas are one of my favourite winter accessories as they add colour and can be wrapped around your shoulders to keep you warm. They are also easy to fold up and carry when not needed.

For work wear, try wearing a trench coat or jacket and scarf over your suit. There are some beautiful coats this season.

Don’t forget about gloves and hats.  They are fabulous fashion accessories; have them in different colours to match your different outfits and add the ‘wow’ factor to your style.
