We have finally entered the depths of winter here in Australia, but what does that mean for the Australian winter fashion trends this year? Well Australian Fashion Week 2021 recently wrapped up, and the event shone a spotlight on the hottest fashion trends to look out for in winter 2021. 

Winter fashion can be hard to navigate in the Australian climate. Some parts of Australia experience sub-zero temperatures, whilst other parts barely get below 20 degrees. So, we’re putting in the hard yards for you and going to give you the best tricks, tips and trends to complete the best winter looks this season, no matter the winter climate you’re in! 

Puffer Jackets

Puffer jackets are a staple in many wardrobes for practical reasons; however, they are one of the hottest trends this winter. Not only are these jackets one of, if not the warmest type of jacket you can reach for, but they are also lightweight and durable – perfect for taking on that weekend getaway! 

Choose a puffer jacket in a bold colour or print as a way to break up a neutral outfit or to add a bit of spice to an otherwise dull outfit that you might be getting tired of. Alternatively, you can stick to the standard winter colours and have the reliable, comfy stable in your wardrobe for years to come. Check out this sleek, elegant black puffer from Belle & Bloom

Flare Jeans

A trend that we have seen consistently in the recent winter season is the iconic flare jean. It is reliable, flattering and adds dimension to your outfit to keep it interesting. The 2021 flared jean look focuses on a longer hem that works exceptionally well paired with a chunky boot or sneaker. Or go for a more refined look that seamlessly transitions from the office to afternoon drinks by pairing the flares with a sleek, pointed-toe boot or pump; this will change the silhouette to a more elegant, put-together look. Check out these flared jeans from Belle & Bloom, available in dark blue, washed blue and black.

Checkered Prints

Checkered prints on different garments have long been popular, consistently being reimagined in various ways to keep the look on-trend and up to modern standards. This print is being diversified for the 2021 winter fashion trends. This is used on garments from traditional jackets to jeans, handbags and even sweaters. One of the most timeless, classic ways to up your winter outfit is with a checkered coat. This look is diverse, stylish and gives a fun but sleek end look. Create this look for yourself this winter with Belle & Bloom’s oversize checkered jacket.

Shades of Brown

The usage of browns in fashion was a trend that entered the scene last summer, and this trend has continued into the winter fashion scene in Australia. Using the diverse range of brown shades has allowed the colour to become one of the prominent trends this year. If you’re starting out experimenting with browns in your wardrobe, stick to adding one garment in brown to modernise your outfit. If you’re feeling adventurous, try putting together an outfit using all different shades of brown, which will give you an effortless, chic look. Try out this deep brown button-up sweater from Belle & Bloom to get your shades of brown look started.
