4 Style Hacks To Update Your Dying Winter Wardrobe

15 August 2016, by Forrest Chase

There is an international belief that Australians are indestructible. To an extent, it rings true – put bloke or sheila in 40 degree heat and we are A-Okay. Ask us to share a nation with horde of dangerous and deadly animals and we’ll say ‘Strewth mate, we already do that’. However, as much as we like to deny it, we do have a weakness.

Once the thermostat falls below 20 degrees, Australians are basically rendered useless. Heaters are cranked up, second doonas are brought out from storage, and cats become a valuable (and highly sought after) foot-warming commodity in the household. And often what suffers the most in on these dreary days is our sense of style.

Want to avoid succumbing to fashion pitfalls, but still need to save for that December getaway? Here are some quick style hacks to keep your wardrobe at enviable-status without splashing out the cash on a whole new outfit.

Ladies:

Gossip Girl Preppiness: Time to revisit your favourite (slightly dysfunctional) upper-east-side fashion clan. Take inspiration from Blair Waldorf and pick up some over-the-knee socks to bring your favourite summer pumps into the colder months.

Myer Nine West Academy Shoes $160, and Sportsgirl Over-The-Knee Cara socks $12.95




Get loud: Badges haven’t been this cool since your Scouts days. Swap your rope-tying badge for a fun food-inspired pin set from Jay Jays to personalise your trusty denim jacket, jeans or dungarees for a great casual look. Our favourite? The donut. Hands down.

Jay Jays Pin Sets from $9



Guys:

Top it off: there’s nothing better than when your nan knits you a beanie. However, there is the colour-challenge that often occurs; “I love it Nana! I never knew custard and mint green polka dots could look so brilliant together!”. If you slot into this group, we suggest this suave little beanie number from Kenji.

The Rich-Guy Cardigan: It’s 6pm, and in the wood-panelled study of a grand, Victorian mansion an eligible bachelor trawls through The Financial Times with a glass of scotch in hand. His knitted, relaxed cardigan is illuminated by the soft amber glow of a dying fireplace and you get this feeling that you’ve walked onto the set of The Great Gatsby. You ask the man where he got this cardigan from and he replies ‘how did you get into my house?’.

Myer's Give Registry

05 August 2016, by Forrest Chase

When a woman leaves abuse, all she often leaves with is her life. A life that she has to rebuild from scratch, with no money or basic household items.

Myer’s Give Registry is a collection of essential items women need most when they're starting over. You can help by contributing an item on the registry at Myer, Forrest Chase. Whether it's a toaster, towels or a set of sheets, you can make a difference by purchasing much-needed items for those who simply can’t afford it at this point in time. For every item you give, Myer gives one too. 

All product donations from The Give Registry go to women and children supported in The Salvation Army’s women’s refuges, nationally.

To get involved with this fantastic program or learn more, visit Myer instore at Forrest Chase.
