Winter Style Guide

Winter is officially here, and with it come snow and cold weather.  Brrrr!  But just because you're bundled up in heavy coats and woolly scarves doesn't mean that you can't still be fashion-forward (remember, you have to take off your parka sometime!).  A number of this season's trends are easy to incorporate into practically any outfit, regardless of cumbersome layering, and trying out the newest hot make-up looks is a surefire way to make a splash.  Read on to learn more about some of the coolest looks to have graced the autumn runways.

Women's Trends

Minimalism

A minimalist wardrobe is anything but boring when your dresses and jackets are tailored to perfection. Use a nude sheath dress as a counterpoint to statement jewellery or a bold handbag.

Menswear for Women

More Alexa Chung than Annie Hall, the resurgence of menswear styling is all about effortless chic. Pants get a modern update from a narrow ankle, while jackets are fitted with natural shoulder lines. 

Faux Fur

Modern technologies have made faux fur almost indistinguishable from the real thing, so indulge and experiment with different textures and lengths in everything from wing coats to vests.

Ankle Boots

Whether they're leather, suede, cuffed, or buckled, ankle boots are a great way to add texture and interest to an outfit. Keep the look modern by choosing a pair with a chunky or wedge heel. 

Full Skirts

Not to be confused with peasant or prairie skirts, full skirts have a distinctly retro-modern appeal. It's all about length and proportion, so keep shirts simple and fitted and pair with a stacked or wedge heel.

Men's Trends

Corduroys

They're way more versatile than you think. Thin wales are perfect for dressing up for a night out while wider ones are great for the office. 

Tweed Blazers

Your grandpa's weekend clothing staple just got a lot more modern, thanks to lighter fabrics and slimmer silhouettes. Pair with a thin sweater or t-shirt for a casually polished look. 

Crewneck Sweaters

The ultimate in comfort, crew neck sweaters in luxe materials like merino wool or cashmere are something no man should be without this winter. 

Lug Sole Boots

Perfect for gripping icy terrain, lug sole boots are an ideal match of form and function. Wear a low-rise chukka boot style for day, and swap them with a leather lace-up for night. 

Field Coat

No longer relegated to weekend fox hunters and countryside getaways, field coats are a stylish alternative to puffy parkas. Layer with a crew neck sweater and button-down for an easy and stylish ensemble. 

Winter Makeup

Liquid Eyeliner

Thanks to precision felt tip pens and long-lasting formulas, liquid liner is easier to apply than ever. Try a fanciful cat's eye or bold 60s style liner that will catch everyone's eye. 

Peach Blush

There's no better way to keep that fresh summer glow in the dead of winter than with a creamy peach blush. Keep the rest of your face neutral to make your cheeks really pop. 

Metallic Eyeshadow

Silvery grays and pale metallics are an unexpected wash of color that can really wake up a winter wardrobe. Extend the colour up to the brow bone for an eye-opening look.

Fresh Skin

If all the office holiday parties and family get-togethers are sapping your skin of its serene glow, fake it with an illuminating moisturiser. 

Gold Liner

Used on the some of the biggest runway shows this year, gold liner is a perfect way to brighten up your makeup routine. Line under the eyes for a modern look that won't overwhelm your face.
