You don't have to wear everything you own.

Style and warmth don’t always go hand in hand. Case in point: thermals, uggboots, leg warmers…need we go on?

And while the athleisure movement has certainly helped the cause, there are some events where we just can’t get away with wearing trackpants … no matter how trendy.

For all those times when you need to look a little more sophisticated, it pays to have some key pieces that’ll keep you warm. Whether it be a chic boot to save your feet or a flattering jacket to hide your hoodie under, these items prove you can be fashionable and toasty at the same time.

Before you resort to head-to-toe North Face, check out some of these edgy winter essentials.

1. The Jacket


Jackets are what H Brand does and boy, they do them well. They’re effortlessly chic and exude luxury but they’re ridiculously comfy, too. It’s hard to pick just one from their breathtaking collections but we do love the Luella anorak. Designed in Australia and handcrafted in China, it’s an investment piece that’ll last you a lifetime.

Shop → Luella Anorak.

2. The Pants

Kym Ellery, the brains behind Australian fashion label, Ellery, can do no wrong in our eyes. Everything she creates exudes femininity and effortless style and these flared crepe pants are no exception. They’re flattering, elegant and seriously cool.

3. The Sneakers

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand have so many weird and wonderful styles that we love. A notable mention must go to the glittery silver and gold (pictured above), leopard print and zebra print, but we can’t forget the old and faithful, white and black superstar—it goes with everything.

4. The Knit

High neck, statement sleeves, well-fitted … what more could we want from a signature knit? It’s perfect for layering or on its own, put it under a pinafore dress or over a tee and you’re good to go.

Shop → Indigo Knit Top in Navy and Maroon.

5. The Boot
