Summer fashion in winter, yes it can be done

FEELING the winter chill but don’t want to spend money on a whole new wardrobe? Trinity College Foundation Studies students Amanda Foong, Eric Luo, and Mila Effendi show you five easy ways to use your summer wardrobe this winter.

1. Limitless Layers

In Melbourne’s unpredictable weather, layers are your best bet. By layering the thin tops you own, you can keep the winter chill at bay! A layer can make all the difference in the world and the beauty of layers is you can add or take them away depending on how the weather changes.

2. Love for Leggings

Leggings are often overlooked come winter – but they are actually surprisingly warm! They come in all colours and patterns to suit every girl’s style. Some leggings are thicker than others, but thin leggings can also be layered to keep warm. You can even wear them inside another pair of pants if it’s an extra cold day.

3. Crazy Cardigans & Like-a-Boss Blazers

Cardigans and blazers come in handy during this time of the year because they are both stylish and warm! Best of all, they are a classic and can be worn for any occasion.

Dress to impress with a blazer, like Eric and Athira (photo above). Cardigans are versatile and can be worn as an extra layer for warmth (just like in step one).

4. Don’t Mess, Dress!

So, you’ve just bought a great new dress – but it’s too cold to put it on! We’ve got a solution: tuck the dress into your jeans, and pair it with boots, a jacket, and a scarf.

Now you can be both stylish and warm!

5. Super Socks

Knee-high socks are a staple for any Autumn-Winter wardrobe. If you’ve never tried it on before, you’ll find that it helps make legs look longer, and is effortless to put together for any outfit!

If you are running out of scarves, these socks can double up as a scarf as well. Athira rocks this style in the photo below!

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
