Fashionable Winter Outfits & Tips
As the weather cools down, getting dressed is no longer as simple as throwing on shorts and a t-shirt. Dressing for winter can be challenging, especially when you want to keep warm but remain fashionable, too!
With some simple planning, winter fashion can be fun and stylish. You can still remain on-trend without having to compromise on warmth and comfort.
In this article, we go over the best winter fashion tips for women, men and kids to keep the entire family looking and feeling fabulous this winter. The best part? You’ll be able to find all the fashion pieces mentioned right here at Marketplace Gungahlin!
Winter Outfits for Women
1. Warm thermals
Consider wearing thermals underneath your winter outfit for extra protection against the chilly weather. There are some great fashion thermals available that are even stylish enough to wear as outerwear for lounging around the house. These baselayers consist of fleece leggings and turtleneck long sleeve tops as well as thermal onesies to style underneath chunky sweaters and overcoats.
2. Chunky knits
A fashionable chunky knit sweater is always a winning winter outfit staple. You can throw it over a pair of jeans, over a dress or style with winter stockings, a skirt and ankle boots for a girly winter fashion spin. Look to oversized knits in neutral colours that you can pair with anything, or, add some colour with a bright cable knit sweater to beat away those winter blues!

3. Sweater dresses
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to put your favourite dress away! There is a huge range of gorgeous winter sweater dresses that can be worn from day to night for some girly glam throughout the colder months. From figure-hugging silhouettes to oversized dresses that can be worn over the top of leggings and styled with a waist belt; the choices are endless. You can even repurpose your summer slip dress by layering it over a turtleneck sweater for a cute, party-ready outfit.
4. Black jeans
This winter, swap wide-legged mom jeans for a pair of black skinny jeans. Tight-fitting clothing will protect against wind chill and helps to balance out bulky jackets and oversized sweaters. They can also be easily tucked into boots for added chic winter style.

5. A trench coat
A statement coat is the perfect way to dress up any outfit in winter while keeping you warm. Look for long coats that can be slipped on over sweaters and dresses. And, instead of opting for toned-down colours, look for playful patterns or faux fur-lined coats for extra glam and maximum impact!

6. Winter boots
Stylish boots are essential for the winter season! They keep your feet warm and waterproof and can be worn from the office to date night. You can’t go wrong with a pair of knee-high boots or heeled ankle boots. Look to suede styles in blacks, greys and browns to match any outfit, and wear them over jeans for an easy fashion-forward look.

Winter Outfits for Men
1. Layer sweaters over a collared shirt
For a stylish transitional outfit this winter, think about layering a quality merino wool jumper or sweater over your work shirt. This winter men’s trend always looks smart and can be worn to the office or out to dinner. It will also add some extra warmth and can be styled with jeans or trousers and topped off with a coat for maximum winter street style.

2. Long scarves
A scarf should be a men’s winter fashion staple! They can be styled with any outfit and look super smart when paired with a neutral sweater or layered outerwear. Opt for a long, wide scarf that you can hang casually around the neck or drape around one shoulder for a fashionable look.
3. Embrace trendy jackets
There are many winter jacket choices for men right now, ranging in different materials and lengths to fit any personality and style. Some of our favourite men’s winter jackets include tan corduroy jackets, leather jackets, denim jackets and bomber jackets. For a fashionable – and functional – twist this winter, try popping a leather or denim jacket over the top of a hoodie! You can also layer shorter jackets over the top of a long flannel shirt and top it off with a chunky scarf or beanie for a cool style.
4. Winter pants
A good pair of winter pants will keep the legs warm while looking on-trend. The best materials to choose from include corduroy, moleskin, wool and cashmere. While the summer fashion trends had men opting for more cropped pant styles, now is the time to slip into longer length trousers and jeans that are slightly fitted or a little looser depending on your preference. As always, dark or neutral colours are more universal and can be worn with anything.

The humble sweatsuit is always a great choice for cosy winter style. In recent years, men's sweatsuits have veered from strictly house attire to streetwear appropriate. If you want your sweatsuit to look smart, look for dark charcoal greys or a sandy taupe colour. You can then pop on a jacket over the top and style with sneakers or leather boots for a laid-back urban winter look.

6. Men’s winter boots
As the pavement starts getting blanketed with rain, ice and snow, it pays to invest in footwear that is weatherproof. Some of the best men’s winter boots of the season include Timberland lace up boots, leather hiking boots, and wool-lined ‘bean boots’ that can be worn with jeans, chinos or sweatpants.

Winter Outfits for Kids
1. Winter accessories
Kids heads and hands get cold easily, especially when they spend a lot of time playing outdoors. The good news is, kids have so much choice when it comes to trendy winter accessories! From knitted beanies to gloves, earmuffs and scarves, accessorising this winter with warm woolies is an easy way for kids to stay warm while looking all dressed up. Girls can go further with their winter accessorising by pulling on some long thick socks to go underneath winter dresses!

3. Fleece-lined leggings
Winter layering can be difficult with kids. If you have a child who hates getting dressed in the mornings, then keep it simple with a pair of fleece-lined leggings. These comfy pants offer warm insulation and can be worn like any other pair of pants for comfort and practicality this winter.
4. Sherpa vest
Sherpa vests offer a soft, warm and easy to layer protection over thermals. They come in a range of colours too, with easy to zip fastening for little fingers. Sherpa vests can be worn by both boys and girls and are a cute addition to your childrens winter wardrobe.
