Your guide to winter fashion in Takapuna

Time for a wardrobe tune-up? Feeling the chill? You’ll be blazing hot after a spree at some of these world-class and Takapuna-famous fashion stores. Here’s our guide to gearing up this winter.

Go long with a good coat

Cover up, create a silhouette, shelter from the weather, and look damn sharp doing it. We don’t know if you’ve heard yet, but just about every stylist anywhere is telling us green is the colour of the year – check out this beautiful Grace Coat from Kilt and Olive Double Breasted Coat from Portmans. Plaids are something a little different that’s also neutral and easy to wear – like this Central Park Coat from Federation – or go a little wild with something like this Houndstooth Check Coat from Cue.

Stay warm with a stylish sweater

Find something you can dress up or dress down, something you can wear to work or dinner with friends, but that will still be comfy and warm when you’re heading home after dark. This Kenzie Sweater from Ruby is super cute in pink, and super soft with its merino/cashmere blend. The lace-style sleeves are a nice touch on this Nevada Jumper from Augustine, and Decjuba is rocking a whole range of stunning knits including this Jamie Stitch Detail Jumper.


Give winter the boot

In terms of footwear, it’s always good to have a pair of combat boots in your lineup.

They’ll give you elevation, style, and a certain level of authority that comes with wearing boots that look like they could do damage.

Mi Piaci has a huge range of combat boot styles, and we’re loving the modern aesthetic of this pair of Nora Ankle Boots.

Gear up for the snow

Whether you’re heading up to Snowplanet, road tripping to Ruapehu or having a ski holiday in Wānaka, you deserve to be looking your best on the slopes. Patterns and bright colours are in this year – your mates will always be able to spot you on the slopes with this floral Rowley X Roxy Snow Jacket and men’s Quicksilver Utility Bib from Amazon.
