Winter Warmers – New Season Knits

Jacket required

The look of the moment is definitely a jacket – now we don?t mean the sort of souped-up brass-buttoned blazer you?d find in Joan Collin?s wardrobe a?la Dynasty era. The appeal of the jacket now is much more subtle. Whether they?re boxy, boyfriend style or soft and easy, or slim and fitted they have to be tailored no matter what. Don?t just think you can borrow your boyfriend or brother?s jackets? no way! It has to fit you and fit you well. We recommend Witchery for some great styles and Dotti as well. You can always find something in Dotti that fits well and is reasonably priced. Go to www.dotti.com.au

to find out where the nearest Dotti is to you. Once you?ve found the jacket try it over a pair of cigarette pants or layered skirt. The result? The kind of look that will have people asking you all night where you got your style.Jumper Time View the toasty winter jumpers below

Some Must Buy Denim in Coming Season

You have to admit you have probably seen more Denim in the shop windows than usual. That is because Denim and more Denim is definitely one of the latest trends. One of the best buys is the mini skirt, which is the hottest skirt for spring/summer. You can either go vintage or washed denim five pocket style or simple and clean in stretch fabrics. Check out Sportsgirl and Sass & Bide’s range of denim mini’s. If in Sydney head straight to Bracewell on Oxford St for the latest in the Sass & Bide range. We hear it may have already sold out? so hurry! It really is the SKIRT for summer. The other fashion must have for the season to come is the denim jean. It’s the hottest look in either stretch or ridged and looks best in sandblasted or vintage creased styles. Make sure the jean is low rise?

once again Sportsgirl has a great pair of sandblasted jeans in store now for only $69.95. Or try The Quick Brown Fox for any slick, super low tight jeans.
