Winter has certainly made its presence known here on the South Coast. Days begin with a crisp, icy feel and it's anyone's guess whether the week will bring frequent rainfall or that gorgeous winter sunshine.

It can be a struggle to decide what to wear in these fickle weather conditions so we have put together some quick tips for winter styling.




Colour lifts your spirits and adds a point of difference to your wardrobe selections. Throughout the winter months, try paying attention to your colour choices and move away from black. This doesn't mean you need to opt for bright colours. Colour can be sprinkled throughout your wardrobe in a myriad of hues, from soft pastels to deep jewel tones.

Hats and scarves are the ultimate winter styling companions. In addition to providing warmth and protection, these beauties are your best friends in terms of transforming an outfit from drab to fab. From wool fedoras to cord caps and chunky knit scarfs to fine cashmere shawls, these accessories provide endless options and create varied style to existing ensembles with ease.

We often require that extra layer in winter. As the external layer is most visible, an effective way of lifting your winter style is to make that layer a beautiful feature. Why not add colour, pattern and texture to your winter wardrobe with statement coats and cardigans. This enables you to dress for comfort and warmth underneath and let that stand out feature garment do the talking.

Under the outerwear, we need essential layering pieces. Identifying key layering staples in your wardrobe enables you to "grab and go", offering a versatile base to mix and match with statement pieces. Set yourself up this winter and have your basics and favourites easily accessible. You'll be surprised how different these key items will appear when paired with a variety of coats, jackets and accessories.

Never underestimate the power of accessories. Think of these items as the icing on the cake. Accessories such as jewellery and handbags add personality to your look and provide opportunity to express your unique style. Try transforming a simple ensemble of jeans and a knit by adding earrings, a gorgeous handbag and standout sunnies. When considering accessories, don't forget your feet! Wear stunning shoes. Play with socks and hosiery. Sometimes these least thought of items can be the standout feature you're looking for.
