Winter whites. This phrase brings to mind a crisp colour palette, and distinctly chic styling combined with a hint of comfort. And although 'chic' and 'comfort' may seem like two totally opposite ends of the spectrum; they definitely don't have to be.

The key as with any personal styling decision is to make sure your individual pieces have some mutual element that ties them all together. In this case, it was the clean whites which dominated each piece of the outfit. Forming an outfit around a base tone or colour allows experimentation with textures, without sending anyone into sensory overload!

Fluffy knits teamed with sleek, midi skirts in leather-finish fabrics (whether it be matte, patent, embossed or metallic) are such a great combo for winter. You get the best of both worlds - the warmth and comfort of the knit, and an injection of style from the ever chic and on-trend skirt style.
Most of our favourite Aussie labels are including at least one midi skirt style in their current collections, so it's not hard to find one to suit your tastes or a particular outfit you may be planning!

Some of my favourite online destinations for amazing Australian labels:
Mary & Me Boutique
Maximillia Boutique
