Sitting Pretty on the Sidelines

June 15, 2016

If you spend as much time on the sporting sidelines as I do over the winter months, you probably need a few winter wardrobe staples to get you through those wet hockey games, standing room only Auskick ovals & windy hours courtside of one netball game after another.

Thankfully you don’t need to forfeit any of your own signature style to keep warm, cosy & dry while cheering on the teams & players you love!

Whether it’s rugging up against the wind, keeping dry offside or splashing through the turf – there are heaps of winter options to keep you going this season.  And if sport isn’t your thing, think strolling through vineyards, long walks through the country or day trips to the lake.  No matter what your winter activity, I’ve got you covered!

If you prefer to make your jacket or raincoat your statement piece or if navy & khaki wardrobe staples are your winter warmer of choice – there’s something for everyone.  Don’t let the prices of some of these pieces frighten you – a great coat should be viewed as an investment – an item that will last year in year out.

Before you buy an investment piece like a winter coat consider what exactly you want from it!

Do you need added length – are you sitting on cold benches & need your bum covered?  Or doesn’t the length really matter?

Do you need it to be waterproof, or is keeping out the wind your priority?

Do you need a hood?

Does the coat need to be able to done up completely?

Considering your needs before you buy will make that major purchase far more valuable if it does the job it’s meant to do!

So here you go –  my picks for gorgeous coats, raincoats, parkas & anoraks, as well as a couple of statement accessories to top it all off!
