This winter is your invitation to be a little bolder. From bright colours to edgy haircuts, here are six easy ways you can make more of a statement with your fashion and beauty choices this season.
Pick up a statement eyeliner
Mixing up your style doesn’t require a drastic change, sometimes it just takes a few tweaks, as simple as changing an eyeliner. Statement eyeliners are popping up on streets and catwalks all over the world.
A stroke of lilac, emerald, or yellow can transform an everyday look into a fierce one. As bold as they are, statement eyeliners aren’t that hard to find. You can browse a range of fun colours at Chemist Warehouse.
Step out in big boots
One fashionista who is all over what’s happening on the runways of the world is Sneza Jovanovic, the style icon behind Instagram account @mums_style_diary. While boots have always been a staple of winter wear, it’s the ‘cool’ factor of combat boots that have more and more men and women reaching for them. Wittner and Platypus Shoes have some great options.
You can stick with classic black or go more neutral with tonal colours like whites, creams and tan. Either way, Sneza guarantees that combat boots are going to be big this season.
Layer up with a sweater vest
While Fashion is fun and expressive, it can also be practical. If you love a sweater but feel a bit too hot under the collar, a sleeveless sweater is a great solution. They’ll keep you warm without being bulky. Perfect over a shirt or under a coat, this look is hard to beat.
Sweater vests are rising in popularity, with everyone from models to influences embracing this seasons latest fashion hit. To help you get ahead of this trend, Seed and Decjuba have some streamlined, classic options. If you prefer your outfits to be a bit more reflective of your personality, check out Cotton On or Sportsgirl.
Embrace functional fashion
As far as men’s fashion staples go, a sturdy safari jacket will never go out of style. This season, designers have reinvented this classic piece of outerwear. As of 2022, safari jackets are even more comfortable, stylish and functional. From multi-pockets to a few large ones, loose and relaxed in the body to tight and form hugging, there is a jacket available to suit every preference.
As Sneza advises, mixing textures and colours can help you achieve a clean and polished look, while pairing your jacket with athletic wear or loungewear will produce a more casual, laidback style. Decjuba stocks a range of colours and Cotton On offers a slew of patterns. To find your perfect jacket, head in store and test your options.
Bring your bangs back
That’s right; bangs are back, but not as you know them. The cooler weather has ushered in a new breed of modern bangs that pack a little more punch than the traditional fringe.
This season, as the humidity drops, expect to see more French fringes – thick, full and long, with a slight part in the middle. Similarly, Zooey Deschanel’s signature do – heavy bangs – is set to make a comeback. Thick in nature and sleek in appearance, this low-maintenance haircut is already being regularly requested at Just Cuts and Hairhouse. As are feathered bangs; a softer alternative that can be easily styled into the ever-popular curtain bangs.
It all starts with good skincare
The consensus is in – almost everyone in the fashion and beauty industry agrees that good style begins with a solid skincare routine. Especially, if you’ve been skimping on it for a while.
Give your skin some serious TLC with a facial and take home some specialised skincare products from Laser Clinics Australia.
