Bidding farewell to the breezy warm days of summer is always tough. When the winds grow chilly and the nights get colder, it’s certainly a bittersweet feeling.

But, the change of the season signals months of comfort and cosiness ahead!

Coats and jackets, denim and patterns, winter is the time to have a full wardrobe of staple looks that can be easily dressed up for casual days as well as nights out.

The fun in the winter wardrobe is that you can have a rotation of looks to mix and match.

If you’re trying to figure out where to start with your winter wardrobe rotation, we have the styling tips for this season for both men and women!

In Trends This Season

Every year brings new trends for the seasons, along with classic favourites. Winter is a time for keeping warm as well as stylish, so it’s time to love your layers!

For the women: oversized shirts, especially long sleeve button ups, are super on trend this season!

Take your pick between striped, gingham, check, classic white or even add a pop of colour to your look.

Pair with your favourite jeans and half tuck in the shirt for an effortless and relaxed look, or style it open with a tank top or wear it on its own.

Knitwear continues to be a winter staple and is always popular as soon as there’s a chill in the air.

Chunky knits such as cardigans and oversized jumpers are perfect for the cooler months and are so easy to match with your favourite pant and boots for a classy and sophisticated look.

When it comes to denim, skinny jeans have taken a backseat in recent years, with slightly slimmer fits even becoming less prominent.

In their place, we’re seeing relaxed-fits reminiscent of the 80s and 90s making a comeback.

For the women: mum jeans, boyfriend jeans and flares are still the top picks, and can be easily styled with both regular and oversize fit tops and a pair of boots or white sneakers.

For the men, the regular straight fit has taken preference over the skinny/slim fit.

There’s no doubt patterns are always in style, and it’s likely you’ve noticed check prints popping up everywhere!

We’ve been seeing this trend frequently in men’s shirts and women’s coats and jackets.

Channelling a classic style, this trend will satisfy fans of heritage-style clothing, outdoor enthusiasts and the sophisticated alike!

For the women, pair a plaid patterned coat, jacket or shacket with your favourite jeans and t-shirt, and finish it off with a pair of boots for the perfect casual winter look!

For the men, pair a plaid button up with jeans or neutral toned pants for an effortless look.

When it comes to winter colour palettes, neutral tones are always in style, and there’s no denying brown is the shade of the season.

Light brown, dark brown, it’s everywhere!

The perfect thing about neutral tones like brown is that they can easily be added to your existing rotation, and mixed and matched.

For the women: If you’re a little nervous about trying a different colour to wear, try easing into the trend by opting for a brown knit, but if you’re prepared and ready to jump straight in, put together an outfit made up entirely of neutral tones for an effortlessly chic look.

Mix shades of brown with your top and jacket or coat, and tie it together with white pants or jeans.

For the men: opt for a brown shade for the classic button up.

Corduroy jackets are back in style, and incorporating one in a tan colour and tying it together with the classic white tee and jeans can make a great look.

A new addition to the winter fashion trends this year is blazers!

You can easily add a blazer to your staple workwear wardrobe, and they can easily dress up any outfit and make you look super fashionable and on-trend.

They don’t have to be a bold colour. Blazers in black, white and neutral colours will easily add style and sophistication to your look.

Another fashion newbie this year is the shacket.

If you can’t decide whether you’re hot or cold, add this shirt and jacket hybrid to your transeasonal wardrobe.

For the men: the 2022 trends are becoming a mix of 90’s style with the colour trends of the 70’s.

Relaxed clothing is here to stay in the post pandemic era, with loose overshirts and hoodies ever the popular and warm winter choice.

Tan and classic neutrals remain the top picks for the winter styles, but pops of colour are becoming increasingly popular.

It’s easy to incorporate colour with a button down with fun colours and patterns.

Winter is the perfect time to find your style with the art of layering, plus a range of key colour palettes.

With a few key pieces, revamping your wardrobe for the cooler months is a breeze.
