I’ve grabbed a white scarf as an accessory …
Which can be double draped if needs be for a nice warm neck!

How to refresh your wardrobe for winter
- Take all your clothes out of your wardrobe and put them on your bed.
- Separate your clothes into piles – dresses, pants, jeans, T’s, blouses, jackets, etc.
- Toss out anything that looks worn or tatty. This goes for shoes as well.
- Put your summer shoes into a storage container. I use big plastic containers (with lids) from Bunnings.
- Look at your clothes carefully. Take out anything which is definitely a summer item and unlikely to be worn in winter, make sure it’s clean, then fold it neatly and put it into a storage container for next year.
- Some summer dresses and skirts look cool with winter boots and tights – decide which of your dresses you will keep in your winter wardrobe and hang them up. Put the others into a storage container.
- White jackets will probably not look great with your winter wardrobe staples, but leather jackets, bright jackets and denim will – I like to wear them over long sleeved T’s or long sleeved shirts – then I dress them up with scarves whether it’s cold or not.
- Depending on which part of Australia you live in, you might want to store your T-shirts, cuts-offs and capri pants until next year.
- I store most of my short sleeve T-shirts and my white capri pants so that they feel like new next spring!
- When you’ve decided what you’ll keep, organise the garments in your wardrobe, either by colour or item, depending on how you like to look for things.
- I like to keep my dresses, pants, blouses and jackets in separate sections, EXCEPT if I have special outfits which I’ve bought specifically to be worn together because the colours go so well. These I try to keep in my ‘Outfits’ section. Yes, I’m not perfect – they do get muddled up as I mix and match.
