There's a lot to love about winter's biggest trends: relaxed silhouettes, easy sweats and cosy knitwear in luscious shades that kick basic black to the curb: think rich caramel, cream and soft pink, with a dash of plum. Here's how to warm up your style with the key classics.
One of the key pieces for winter 2021 is the long, knitted dress. This style from Seed Heritage, available at Myer is versatile and a must-have. Wear it to work with an oversized blazer and pair of flats or with a denim jacket and chunky boots on weekends.
Choose a style that's knee or calf length and keep an eye out for the must-have knit style of the season: mohair blends.
Invest in leather
Soft, buttery leather is everywhere this season – it's appearing in styles ranging from coats to blazers, pants and skirts. Team your leather blazer or skirt with a mohair sweater or match it with a pair of boot-cut denim jeans for the weekend.
Match your leisurewear
The focus on chic leisurewear continues in 2021, however, this season it's all about elevating this look with luxe colours and cozy mohair sweaters. This look is perfect to pair with denim when you're keeping it casual. Simply throw a "shacket" over it when the days have an extra chill. What's a shacket? It's a slightly oversized shirt-jacket hybrid and it's one of the big trends of the season.
Layering is also on trend when you want to strike a balance between working from home and office wear – top your hoodie with a blazer for a slightly more formal look.
Wear the colours of the season
Neutrals hues of cream and caramel are a new easy-styling winter ensemble staple. Look effortlessly chic by putting together outfits made up entirely of neutral tones for a look that lifts the mood and takes a giant leap away traditional blacks and greys. Warm, neutral geometric prints offer polished and chic looks in spades.
Also, while pastels are usually a spring stable, dusty shades of pink have emerged as a huge colour trend for autumn/winter. Match them with autumnal shades of chocolate, caramel and plum.
Add a pop of plum
Tonal dressing is back in a big way. And ever since Michelle Obama stepped out in head-to-toe plum for the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, women have been obsessed with the rich, jewel shade.
Wearing a single tone from head-to-toe, such as Seed Heritage's plum mohair crew neck sweater with relaxed pants, is also a flattering way to elongate your silhouette. As if you needed another reason to add pops of the regal shade to your wardrobe.
