Well the chill has finally arrived and we are experiencing those beautiful warm days and chilly nights that Queensland’s autumn and winter are known for. Time to flip your closet and get your wardrobe ready for this season’s fashion trends.
We’ve checked out the highlights from Fashion Week to help you plan your look. No need to do a complete overhaul, inspiration this season comes from a mix of the 70’s and the 90’s - both eras had their overstated fashion elements.
Accents will be bold, metallic and fringing - this will make your new look easy to achieve with accessories. So update with a few essentials and see what you can mix with your existing wardrobe.
Coats - We don’t need them much in Queensland, but if you’re heading south for business or pleasure you know you will need one. This season will see coating be long and over-sized (more 90’s). We love this military inspired one from the colour to the pockets (there are never enough pockets put into women’s tailoring).

As we mentioned, fringing is in, which you can add with your coat for a casual look.
If you want something a little more versatile for our milder weather, then go with a cape. Love this one (above) with a mix of metallics and warm, soft textures - it will dress up and down.
Suited or casual jackets - The structured jacket and button down shirt are back. Mixing prints is key, and you’ll see lots of bold tartans around so don’t be afraid to pair up what you wouldn’t have in the past.
Accessorise with small handbags, boots (of course) - all lengths, laced or zipped,
Hair should be soft loose curls with side-swept fringes. Consider a pure blonde if you are sporting a short cut or bob and a wheat blonde if you are wearing your hair longer.
To finish off your new look; make-up essential is a red lip.
Oh, and keep in mind that even though it’s winter, our Queensland sun can still be harsh - big floppy hats are in, so work that into your day look if you are headed out for a long lunch.
Enjoy a beautiful winter and we will see you next month!
