Do you ever think you’re living in the wrong climate?
As a born and bred Queenslander, I feel like I’m cheating on my home state when I admit that I should live somewhere colder. Or, at least, somewhere that experiences winter for more than one or two weeks a year.
Thankfully, temps in Brisbane have cooled slightly this week giving me the perfect excuse to start adding some cool weather accessories to my outfits, which is a great way to elevate your look—and keep you feeling warm and toasty—without breaking the budget.
To celebrate the first post in my new series—Handpicked—I’ve rounded up some great ways to combine fashion and function to heat up your look this winter—scarves, hats, beanies, boots and jewellery. All for under $50.
Top tip: If you do decide to complete your look with a hat, save the straw for summer and opt for one made from felt or wool—Kmart, Cotton On and Feather & Noise, and Will & Bear are worth checking out.
