Jeans

Basic black jeans and a light duster coat is the best outfit when you’re running on zero inspiration. Not only is this ensemble super-comfy, but it looks put together when paired with a pretty black clutch. If you’re taking this outfit from day to night, trade the sneakers for a pair of heeled ankle boots instead.

1

Skirt

If the weather is acting up but you still want to show off your legs, choose a leather or denim skirt to pair with your duster coat. Shades of black, grey, and white work beautifully together, especially if you need to feel comfy for the day.

2

Playsuit

Style a monochrome playsuit with a pastel blue duster coat just like Kylie Jenner. This outfit is easy on the eyes, and is complimented with a beautiful brown fedora hat. Heels, or course are optional! You could always trade them for some beautiful flat sandals.

3

Midi dress

Go for a classy look and wear your favourite midi dress with a longline duster coat. This is a sophisticated look which is perfect for an evening out, or even the office. A soft beige coloured trench is perfect since it never goes out of style.

4

White shirt

Bring some life to a casual white t-shirt and wear it with a crisp duster coat. If you want to make this look a little smart-casual, wear some killer stiletto heels and leather bag to complete the look.

5

Mini dress

Go for the classic sports-luxe look by adapting a casual mini dress into this trend. A collared duster coat brings a level of sophistication to any outfit, but you can always make this look feel dressier by wearing some summer sandals instead.

The weather is getting cold and gloomy but this doesn’t mean your clothes have to be dull as well. Winter is one of the best times of the year to show off your personal style and involves some of our favourite trends here at SHESAID.

This is our checklist for the must-have essentials this season influenced by the wearable items straight from the runway:

Coats

The elegance of the coat makes it a timeless piece, one colour to flaunt is navy blue, the dark intensity is a standout this winter, it seems popular as a nice change from the usual black. If you want to make the look a bit different to your normal silhouette, wear a short or long coat with oversized shoulders, Balenciaga and Gucci have both channeled this recently in their collections, this 80’s style revival has been a hit in street style too, with top heavy becoming one of the biggest trends this year.

Boots

I’m sure you all know by now that boots are a must have. Here are the three boot styles you should invest in:

  • Ankle boot: Guaranteed to look chic whether they are heeled or flat both will also lengthen your legs and make you feel sexy at any time of the day.
  • Over-the-knee boot: This trend has seen numerous famous fashion bloggers working it this season, perfect with an A-line dress and coat.
  • Work style: As Australians the work boot is part of a practical lifestyle; Dr. Martens are easy to find in an op shop for less than $70, or if you want a pair nice and cheap, replicas are available from many fast fashion shoe stores.

Jeans

Most online and physical stores are having their End of Year Financial Sale, therefore it is the best time to take advantage and buy a new pair of jeans. Glue Store now have jean specialised fitters, this would be a great way to find a pair you love and you know are the right fit. If you are more interested in what is on trend, grab a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, the loose look is flattering and works well with a basic tee and blazer.

There you have it, our three necessities this winter. Happy shopping!
