I recently purchased a new faux fur vest, and finally this morning was the right time to wear it! With morning temperature’s heading below 5 degrees in Canberra lately, I have been absolutely giddy with excitement that winter is on its way.

Don’t get me wrong, being a summer baby means that I love summer, and the warmer weather months will forever be my preferred time of year, but there is something about winter and winter fashion that I have fallen in deep love with.

With the beauty of being able to layer, wear gorgeous faux fur’s, felt hats and boots – I’m addicted to winter fashion!

With that in mind I have searched high and low for 10 Winter Wardrobe Essentials. Check them out below and add them to your winter shopping list.

3. Jimmy Choo “Dale” Sneakers

No one can get through winter without a quality pair of sneakers. I stumbled across this pair of Jimmy Choo “Duff” Sneakers on Farfetch recently and I was instantly hooked!  These sneakers are constructed from black calf leather and feature a round toe, tassel detailing, a gold-tone logo plaque, white rubber sole and slip-on style.


4. Viktoria & Woods Star Crossed Plait Sweater

I can never get through a winter without at least 5 grey knits. This Viktoria & Woods knit has a super relaxed fit (I recommend going down a size), and is constructed from a soft cotton. Style over a pair of white denim jeans for weekend wear or a leather skirt in the evening.


5. Witchery Military Coat

This is the look of the season. It features a double-breasted style with sharp wide lapel and concealed side pockets. This will work over all of your winter ensembles. PS – This item is only available in-store ladies, so you’ll have to head into your local Witchery to purchase.

This is a great boot for everyday, statement wear – AND they are on sale! These Rudi Shoes Sloan High Boots feature a luxe faux suede, as well as high block heel. Ideal for pair with denim jeans and a statement black blazer.

Sometimes it’s nice to wear a skirt during winter that isn’t black. This Topshop Blush Leather Skirt combines a wrap style and mid length, and features a super flattering wrap silhouette with three leather buttons, and high waisted fit. Style with a grey knit and ankle boots.


8. Country Road Tie Waist Sleeveless Dress

I love a good knit dress, and this is a very flattering piece from Country Road. You can read more about my love for it here in my latest What I Wore post.
