Stylist Sjan Johansen’s Top 5 Winter Jackets in Centre Now
With the definite drop in temp felt recently, it’s got us reaching for our warmest piece of outerwear. Yep, I think we can officially start layering up.
We all know that that right piece of clothing can finish off an outfit. A great jacket or coat works like magic, instantly transforming an otherwise monotonous warm-weather look into the ideal winter outfit.
This season has us stepping out of our comfort zone and exploring fun colours, prints, textures and shapes. Bright solid hues are replacing understated neutrals, and we’re seeing a bigger play with scale and fabric combinations.
Shop my round up of the top 5 Winter jackets from Noosa Civic Shopping Centre that’ll be major players this season.
Longline Blue Check Shacket – SUSSAN
Thicker than your average shirt but thinner than your winter coat, a shacket is the ideal outer layer before it gets seriously cold. This longer version from Sussan comes in a bold blue check, button detail down the front and cuff and is the perfect relaxed fit. The blue hue sits beautifully paired back light or dark denim jean and a fresh white tee.
Long Sleeve Teddy Jumper – ALLY FASHION
This long sleeve teddy jumper from Ally Fashion will elevate your cool weather layering. The textural teddy fabric exudes cosy chic – slightly more dramatic in look but simultaneously easy to wear. The neutral caramel tone allows it to work with most other colours. Styled with relaxed boyfriend jeans and ankle boots or a bike short and sneakers in the same warm colourings.
Sherpa Jacket – COTTON ON BODY
Whether you opt for colour-blocked shades or one standout solid, it’s time to add at least one colourful jacket or coat to your cold-weather lineup. If you’re ready to up the ante on the colour front, I’ve found your statement piece. Cotton On Body has brought out a slightly cropped, part quilted part sherpa fabric puffer jacket in a vivid blue. If you wanted to play with proportions, you could wear this oversized jacket with fitted leggings, skinny jeans or a knitted midi dress to avoid swamping your figure. It also comes in a ‘retro green’ and a ‘toasted hazelnut’ if the blue is not your vibe.
Brea Recycled Puffer Vest – SPORTSGIRL
The humble puffer vest has been a cold weather staple for years now. Sportsgirl has you sorted with their take on the traditional quilted puffer vest. Oversized in fit, multiple pockets, zip and button up closure, made from recycled materials, this one has our vote! Worn with leggings and a hoodie for a more athleisure wear style or a long sleeve jumper and relaxed jeans for a casual ensemble.
Ava and Ever Thomas Shacket – CITY BEACH
Our favourite shirt jacket hybrid isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Versatility is more important than ever for our closets and this off-white corduroy ‘Shacket’ from City Beach is my top pick. It offers a relaxed alternative to traditional winter jackets. Easily worn buttoned up as a shirt but looks effortlessly cool undone as a jacket. Styled with a turtleneck and tailored pants, light denim jeans and tee or midi dress with chunky boots, this transeasonal essential is the ultimate in smart-casual wear.
