In a second instalment to our seasonal trends rundown, this month we discuss the key high winter must-haves to get you through the darkest of Melbourne’s winter weather in style and comfort.

If there is one key colour this season you must have in your wardrobe it’s rust! From an organic, earthy orange through to a bright, vibrant tone it is seen everywhere at the moment. Be it a statement accessory or a key wardrobe item, rust is suited to just about all complexions and ages.

There is nothing better than a weekend getaway, especially in the depths of winter. Think hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows by the fire cuddled up in chunky winter knits, cashmere slouchy pants and the cosiest woollen socks! This trend is all about comfort in style- simple investment pieces in neutral tones that will see you through this winter and many more to come.

As it would suggest ‘Wrap Around’ is all about pieces that wrap to the body. Diane Von Furstenburg has made a career of mastering the wrap around- a key staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Be it a coat, dress or knit wrap around styles are flattering to all shapes and sizes.
