A NEW SEASON With the beginning of a new season upon us, I’m reminded again just how lucky we are to live on the Sunshine Coast. I think of our autumn as an extension of summer. Sure, the temperature starts to drop a few degrees, however our summer wardrobe will see us through a little longer and it acts as a great base to add a few autumn pieces to. Here are a few hints on what you’ll be seeing this season.


Prepare for the return of velvet. You may feel wary about this opulent fabric’s big comeback, however there’s no need to be afraid. You can easily incorporate velvet pieces and add to your current wardrobe to master this trend. Add a hint of velvet with a pair of loafers, a cross-body bag, hat, choker or boots to get the look. Holly Boot Dust Velvet, RRP $219.95. sol-sana.com.au


This season the bomber jacket will be back with a bang! You may have spotted this little gem over the past few seasons. It’s the perfect jacket for our coastal climate if you choose a lightweight silk or satin fabric option. Pair with denim shorts or jeans, a floral dress or take the look to the office with wide leg pants or a pleated skirt and heels. Floral bomber, RRP $109.95. sportsgirl.com.au


It’s almost too predictable to mention, but you just can’t go wrong with knitwear. This season we will see a little more skin with the very popular off-the-shoulder trend seeping through to the cooler months. Keep your knit choices to neutral tones including black, cream, grey, rust, dusty pink and khaki. Fold Over Knit, RRP $149.95. witchery.com.au ]]>
