Your guide to timeless winter fashion
Stylist Kathryn Edmonds shares her tips for timeless style and looking your best at any age this winter.
Ageing gracefully means something entirely different than it once did. Your sixties, seventies and beyond can be the most exciting years of your life, and fashion choices are more experimental too. Embracing the skin you’re in opens up a whole new world of opportunity to have fun with fashion and experiment with a multitude of prints, cuts and fabrics that you may not have considered until now.
This season, Brisbane-based stylist, Kathryn Edmonds, shares her tips on looking and feeling your best for the cooler months.
The winter months can be challenging to dress for. This year, there is a focus on adding luxurious fabrics, jewel tones and layering to your outfits for an effortlessly stylish ensemble. “The one thing that continually rings true is that inner confidence is the best form of style, so wear the pieces that make you feel like the best version of yourself,” she said.
By combining your wardrobe staples with seasonal trend garments, you’ll be able to pull together countless looks for winter that are timeless, stylish and inherently ‘you’.
According to Kathryn, one way to ensure your winter wardrobe is looking fresh, polished and up-to-date is by opting for a more luxe finish to your garment fabrics. “By doing this, you automatically elevate your overall appearance simply by the way certain fabrics drape, fall and sit on the body. A luxurious silk blouse will have a high-end appeal when worn with some classic denim jeans or a skirt. To finish off your look with style and sophistication, try adding a traditional cashmere scarf,” she said.
There’s no denying jewel hues are on trend this season. “With the cooler months approaching, it’s always nice to reflect the warmer colour palette in our clothes and accessories. Rich gem and jewel tones evoke a regal and sophisticated vibe, adding depth and character to your overall look. Deep emerald greens, merlot reds and tawny russet and toast shades will infuse your outfit with energy and vitality,” said Kathryn.
“Layering your look is the perfect way to add interest to a winter outfit,” says Kathryn. She recommends playing around with proportions and mixed fabric textures together by introducing colours and playful prints. “The long line, sleeveless vest in a soft, wool blend or cashmere is making a huge come back this autumn/winter and is the perfect item to layer over the top of a lightweight sweater knit,” she said.
