Autumn Winter Fashion Tips with Sheree Johnstone.

  • 27 May 2024

There is a cool change in the air, which means it’s that time of the year when our wardrobes need a little restructuring. Sunshine Plaza Personal Stylist Sheree Johnstone shares her top style tips and some personal favourites as we get ready to cosy up for the Autumn and Winter months.

Autumn and Winter on the Sunshine Coast typically consist of fresh cool mornings, pleasant days, and chilly evenings. When it comes to incorporating our laid-back coastal lifestyle into our winter wardrobe, layering is the best approach—start with extra layers and peel off during the day. Knowing how to wear items in multiple ways is key to enabling versatile wear throughout the season.

The Classic Trench

The classic trench is a season must-have as it can be styled in various ways. You can opt for a neutral tan colour for maximum versatility or choose black for evenings to achieve a more sophisticated look. Colours such as pewter, khaki, and navy lend a classic feel, and a denim trench is the hot item this season. You can team your trench with the ever-classic white t-shirt and jeans, wear it over a dress, or style it with tailored pants.

Sheree’s picks are:

A Cozy Knit

Knitwear is essential for any winter wardrobe. Timeless knitwear staples such as cardigans and sweaters are heroes for layering and work well for our beautiful Sunshine Coast climate. These can be styled with a t-shirt or tank and paired with jeans, a soft long skirt, or linen pants to offer a relaxed silhouette. You can choose neutral tones for a classic look or opt for bold hues to make a big statement. Another option is the knitwear set, perfect if you’re in a rush but still need a pulled-together look—a real lifesaver.

Sheree’s picks are:

Step Out in Style

Embrace contemporary style by bringing a chunky ankle boot into your winter wardrobe. A black ankle boot offers versatility and practicality—what’s not to love? You can pair them with jeans, whether straight-cut or baggy, for everyday wear. Alternatively, wear them with a long floaty dress or skirt with a knit top to create a romantic feel. Choose a boot with laces or buckles to add extra interest.

Finishing Touches

To complete your look, consider statement jewelry such as a chunky necklace, a thick bracelet, or big earrings. These are a must for trendsetters. Choose eye-catching chunky bling in silver or muted metals.
