Some things I have my eyes on for the upcoming cold Sydney winter.
I love how the belted coat gives a bit of shape when you’re layered up in winter. This one from Zaful also has some great statement lapels and is in a beautiful wine/burgundy shade, which is actually a really versatile colour.
Scarves are fabulous accessories, but sometimes you just want to forgo wearing an extra item. Turtlenecks are great for keeping your neck warm during winter! While white will be risky with 3 young ones, it’s a fresh update to the usual darker neutrals I wear.
Straight leg jeans
Okaaaaaaay you’re probably sick of me going on and on about jeans, but just one more note: I’m really into straight leg jeans at the moment. The more classic the shade of denim is and the higher the waist, the better. These tick both boxes.
A fun way to update your winter wardrobe is with a graphic sweater. Flamingoes are my favourite bird and I love how the red fabric and the pink flamingo go together on this sweater. (It also comes in grey and millenial pink!) I wrote about some ideas on how to wear a graphic sweater in winter here.
Anything that has a wrap detail, be it a sweater like this one from Zaful, a blouse or dress, is both stylish and breastfeeding friendly.
I’ve been eyeing off mules for a while now as they’re a great seasonal shoe for when you need to cover the toes but it’s not cold enough to completely cover the foot. Also, they’re a great mum shoe because you just need to slip them on – no need to fiddle with laces or buckles when you’re holding schoolbags and a baby! The embroidery detail of course I couldn’t resist.
I’m not much of a beanie person but my head does get cold in winter. Fedora hats like this one are a nice alternative to a beanie, and the neutral colour means it goes with pretty much everything!
What are you eyeing off for winter (or summer if you’re in the northern hemisphere)? I’d love to see some inspiration!
