WINTER STYLE, HER WAY. @ brookemcauley_




Winter Styling Tips Q&A with Brooke McAuley.

What is your go-to Melbourne style must-have for winter? 

An oversized trench coat is my absolute Winter must have! you can really pack on the layers underneath, stay warm, and still look classy! I got very lucky whilst raiding Dad’s wardrobe recently and found a vintage Dior trench which he bought in NYC when he was about 30….. it now lives in my wardrobe… sorry Dad.

What are your top five essentials for winter? 

  1. A chic puffer jacket! And not just any puffer jacket, I’m talking about one with a bit of style! I love my beige puffer from Tirelli, it has this amazing statement collar, which keeps it a little different to the usual ‘Melbourne puffer jacket uniform’ 
  2. A sleek pair of sunnies to instantly transform a Winter look! See Florentine Eyewear 
  3. Straight leg Levi jeans – must have! Available at Just Jeans 
  4. A cute tracksuit set, which you can roll off the couch and duck to the supermarket in, and still look fab! Try Cotton On Mega, FILA or Factorie 
  5. A mask..

How would you style a winter date night look? 

Oversized blazer + silk cami tucked into some suit shorts + sheer stockings + some killer knee-high boots! (oh,+red lippy!) PS. head to the Men’s section at TX MAXX to snag some high end blazers for this look!

How would you style your look when catching up with friends for coffee? 

I’d bring out Dad’s trusty trench coat again and layer a bright coloured knit sweater underneath. Then I’d pair it back with my straight leg Levi jeans and some classic Converse high tops!

Where do you get your style inspiration from? 

My Dad by the sounds of it! ha ha.

What’s been your favourite bargain this year? 

Ooo it would have to be my $50 Glassons ‘Planet Conscious’ white jeans, which I picked up at Spencer Outlet Centre earlier this year. I wear them so often, white denim just seems to go with everything. They are the perfect fit around the waist, and a nice relaxed straight leg fit PLUS they’re made from recycled fibres following the GRS standard.
