you can wear this win­ter

Northern Rivers Style - - FRONT PAGE -


I’ve just re­turned from an ac­tion-packed week at Mercedes Benz Fash­ion Week in Syd­ney where I wit­nessed some in­spi­ra­tional and some in­ter­est­ing looks. It was a great in­sight into not only what the de­sign­ers are do­ing but to see all the street style trends for the sea­son. I’ve nar­rowed it down to just four that you can eas­ily in­cor­po­rate into your own win­ter wardrobe.


One of my favourites, and it seemed the most pop­u­lar trends of this fash­ion week, was the check print. It's no sur­prise con­sid­er­ing it is ver­sa­tile enough to work across jack­ets, pants, coats, dresses, and ac­ces­sories. There were a lot of tailored check blaz­ers which you can eas­ily wear over a dress to the of­fice or with your favourite skinny jeans and boots off duty. The check pant suit is a su­per sleek look that can be soft­ened with a blouse or give it that street style cred with a white tee and sneak­ers.

Pretty in Pink

Who said pas­tels are just for spring and sum­mer? 2018 has seen the re­turn of pink on the run­way and fash­ion week was no dif­fer­ent. This fun colour can be worn a num­ber of ways –whether it’s a state­ment coat, a white shirt lay­ered with a soft pink knit or just a hint of pink on your bag. Pink pieces look sharp if the rest of your out­fit is in neu­tral colours – think black, white and grey ba­sics.

Faux Fur

Some of the coolest looks I saw on the streets were fin­ished off with a state­ment faux fur coat and with the cold weather hav­ing set in it’s great to see keep­ing warm is func­tional as well as stylish. Com­ing in a range of colours like deep jewel tones and creamy caramel and beige they looked great over all white out­fits or by adding warmth to a dress. Try an an­i­mal print ac­ces­sory if you’re not ready to be cov­ered in it.


As al­ways, we can rely on our hard­work­ing neu­tral staples to get us through win­ter. They give you the most wardrobe mileage as they can all be worn with the trends of the sea­son and they look great on their own. A camel coat is al­ways chic and you can never go wrong with a crisp white shirt.

I would love to see how you in­ter­pret checks, pink or faux fur into your own wardrobe - tag me @cas­sander­son­_style on In­sta­gram or visit www.cas­sander­son­ and send me a mes­sage.
