Know the Basics

There are a few basic things to know when it comes to winter dressing. 

  1. Coats are worth investing in.
  2. Layering makes the outfit.
  3. Don't save your 'good clothes' for a special occasion.

Now let's break down these three points. Scroll down to read more...


Coats are one thing that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Styles come in and out but a classic coat is a staple and very worthy investment. When you find a coat that suits you and fits perfectly, snap it up because a great coat can last you years. 

This grey woollen 'Endless' coat from SHAHN, a Melbourne label, is luxurious, warm and versatile. A coat like this could easily be worn over a sports-lux outfit with sneakers or as I have worn it here with leather pants and a tuxedo jacket.

2. Layering

Layering is probably one of the best parts of winter dressing. A piece can be really simple on its own, but with layers, it can suddenly become an interesting outfit. Accessories too can add another dimension to a minimal outfit. Hats, shoes, scarves, gloves and bags are great for this. Read this post for more about these essentials. 


There is no need to save your good stuff for a special occasion, as I mentioned in this post.

This is my Gucci tuxedo jacket I found in a vintage store in Paris. I often wear the matching Gucci tuxedo pants without the jacket or vice versa. I feel great when I wear my 'good clothes' and feeling great goes hand-in-hand with confidence, so why shouldn't I feel like that everyday? Plus the cost-per-wear of these items proves you should get as much wear as possible!
