Cheap and Trendy Ways to Stay Warm this Winter

Squeakaholic June 30, 2012 0

With the Winter chill well and truly settling in to the Sydney area (and looking like it’s getting pretty comfortable here), Sydney-siders have to accustom their wardrobes to suit the cool temperatures. And that means having to wear some warmer clothing. The problem is, however, being able to rug up and stay toasty whilst avoiding looking like a limbless baby igloo.

Over the past few weeks in my shopping escapades around the city I’ve noticed a few trends that will both keep you cozy and ensure you’re looking and feeling good. All the items are also on sale so they’ll stay well within the weekly budget – but you better grab them quick before they all run out!

Floral Leggings

Spice up any outfit and add some brightness to your day with a pair of floral leggings or tights. A funky way to turn any getup from drab to fab these bargain tights were reduced to just over $30 from Stellino.

A poncho is the perfect way to ward of the Winter blues this season. Comfy, woolly, edgy and versatile – what more could you want? I found this little beauty, the Nutcracker Poncho, on sale at Dotti for a mere $49.95.


Everyone knows that it’s extra important for the body’s core to stay warm in this chilly climate, which gives you the perfect excuse to splurge on a vest (well it did for me anyway). Teamed with skinny jeans, boots and a long sleeved tee, this Boddle Vest from Just Jeans slashed to only $29.95 will be perfect for any occasion.

Gladiator Coat

A favourite coat of mine for this season, this mustard bombshell from Sheike is a fun and classy garment to throw over any outfit. Standing out from the crowd has never been so cheap with the gladiator coat now halved to only $99.

Maxi Dress

If you’re looking stay cozy but chic throughout the Winter, whether day or night, then simply don this camel slinky maxi dress from Shakuhachi. I found this goldmine on Oxford street where the store is having a three day winter clearance sale. What would normally set you back $190 this maxi is now only $57 so get in quick before stock runs out!
