Winter Fashion: Wear It Out

Winter Outerwear

Hello Winter – we meet again and this year we come prepared with the hottest outerwear to keep us cool (and warm). 

I love that limited time of the year on the Sunshine Coast when we can layer up and play with coats and jackets. This year I am delighted to announce the long-awaited return of the waistcoat and we are wearing them in velvet, corduroy and plaid. As we explore the garments we should wear in winter, I hope you enjoy the standout puffer, kimono, pleather and raincoats I have discovered, the coats that serve as snuggle buddies and the layers that lie beneath. 

Our winter fashion editorial was shot at Sunshine Plaza where fashion is only a tiny part of the offering at this shopping, entertainment and dining precinct.  

As always, I have scoured the best local boutiques and also included some new labels in our editorial. It is very important to us at Hello Sunshine Magazine to support our local boutiques and designers but also introduce the emerging superstars in the industry like Zia Lozan and new to brands to our shores like Nocturne. Be the first to see these labels on the following pages of winter fashion curated for the Sunshine Coast by local lovers of all things fashion.
