Ok ladies, so Autumn didn’t exactly happen here on the Gold Coast (apart from a few chilly mornings and crisp evenings) however we’re experiencing a real shift in temperature this week as we lead into Winter, so it may just be time to bring out the Winter-Woolies and assess what you have and what new additions you need this season.
Living somewhere such as the Gold Coast means our Winters are fairly mild, so we don’t get much opportunity for the luscious coats that our Melbournian friends may be donning this time of year. However, we can still layer up with some tropical-friendly pieces that can be added to on the colder days and stripped off as the lunchtime sun blesses us with some higher temps.
We’ve scoured some local Gold Coast stores as well as several online options to bring you a stylishly easy yet Queensland-friendly list of Winter Layers that won’t break the bank.
The easiest way to layer up a look while adding some interest and ‘punctuation’ is to wear a scarf. Have a few neutral ones in your wardrobe that will suit almost any outfit, and a few coloured/patterned ones to jazz up your basic ‘everyday’ look. Be sure to check out the June issue of haven magazine with our guide to this season’s scarves!
