Since Australia is always slightly behind the rest of the fashion world, I've been eyeing winter street style images for at least six months now. Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini have been right at the forefront of my Pinterest boards and have almost taken over my French style pins with their bold Italian looks. And since I grew up in Queensland, I may be more used to winters spent at the beach wearing shorts, but I'm a cold-weather girl at heart. Mainly for three reasons:
1. Layering is super stylish (and it's easier to be creative when putting outfits together).
2. I have fallen for the cosy hygge trend, which makes more sense in cooler months.
3. My favourite wardrobe items are coats, in particular the humble trench.
So if you can't tell by now I'm just a little bit excited about the current drop in temperature. Now's my chance to rug up in all the beautiful coats I've been spying on the runways. While a Sydney winter is still warm compared to other cities in the world, it does get its fair share of chilly days with bouts of miserable rain. For that reason, a good coat always comes in handy and I've rounded up nine of the best styles (some trending and some classics) that are timeless pieces you can wear year after year.
Keep scrolling to see the nine trends that have been on my radar and to shop similar styles.
The classic, utilitarian treat coat is a wardrobe staple for women of all ages.
