MOST WEAR­ABLE WIN­TER TRENDS

Northern Rivers Style - - FASHION - CASSIE AN­DER­SON

Are you start­ing to feel that chill in the air? While those long sum­mer days may be sweet mem­o­ries, why not use it as a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to hit re­fresh on your wardrobe and start build­ing some on-trend out­fits. With ev­ery new sea­son comes a moun­tain of run­way shows and shops full of new buys, both with a whirl­wind of styles, shapes and colour com­bi­na­tions. This is def­i­nitely the sea­son to ex­per­i­ment.

THE NEW DENIM RULES

This sea­son de­sign­ers have taken it to another level and reimag­ined the way we wear it. Cus­tomi­sa­tion is key – em­broi­dery, em­bel­lish­ments of flo­ral and star mo­tifs, frayed and cropped hems and lay­ers of ruf­fles on dresses and shirts, it’s any­thing but safe. Make it un­ex­pected and make it ex­cit­ing.

VEL­VET

Seen in shades of burnt orange, rich red, royal blue and emer­ald green through to sub­dued mid­night blue and black tones. Be bold and go for a jump­suit, dress, midi skirt or pant and jacket combo. Or ease into it with a vel­vet choker or chunky heel boot.

AR­CHI­TEC­TURAL RUF­FLES

High vol­ume ruf­fles cas­cade from the hip, cut across dresses, tops and skirts and are lay­ered along hem­lines and cuffs. But don’t think soft and sweet, the fem­i­nine frill goes mod­ern with firm fab­rics in clean block colours and black and white.

EL­E­VATED KNITS

Tra­di­tional knits are now the key piece to build your look from work to week­end and in be­tween. Cut out shoul­der de­tail and off-the-shoul­der styles trans­form cosy to chic and chunky over­size knits will in­stantly el­e­vate a re­laxed look.

WIN­TER FLO­RALS

The flo­ral trend con­tin­ues to bloom for win­ter, en­sur­ing this ul­tra-fem­i­nine look stays firmly on the fash­ion radar. Too girlie for you? Prints have been given darker un­der­tones. Layer the new soft em­broi­dered maxis with a block colour roll­neck knit, try an asym­met­ric hem or one shoul­der style and make it tough-luxe with a con­trast heavy boot and leather or denim jacket.
