Everything you need for the rest of the season (and more).

By now, you’ll be well aware if you’re missing a must-have item in your winter wardrobe.

As you enter the outside chill each morning, you’ll be clutching your hands, warming your nose and popping your collar to keep any

This collection of winter wares, collated by fashion assistant Annabel Dickson, seeks to remedy these cold spots. You’ll find gloves, beanies, cardigans, coats, longline skirts and pants designed with cosiness in mind.

Featuring a wide v-neck, this fresh lambswool-like merino sweater is made from 100% Australian merino.

This houndstooth-patterned coat is eye-catching, cosy and boasts a sense of extravagance.

A blend of natural fibres (cotton and linen), this roll-neck knit will be easy to integrate into a collection of wardrobe staples.

There’s something cinematic about a cable-knit sweatshirt. This one is rendered in a forest green.

These pieces from the New Zealand brand Thing Thing are both simple staples. The mock-neck long-sleeve finds a point of difference in its cotton-candy colouring, while the skirt features contrast stitching.

Ruby offers up their take on that aforementioned candy-ish pink, with this cosy cardigan (which also heroes a cutesy bow tie).

This longline trench coat comes in five different colours; black, grey, taupe, sandy beige and this dusky blue.

Fluffy and full, this alpaca-blend vest will be a fortifying layer.

A shacket is a piece that will make tired mid-week dressing feel breezy. This one, also available in black and green hues, is made of insulating cord.

This midi skirt, also made in cord, is sturdy. In this dark blue, it’s a versatile piece that is both utilitarian and stylish.

Staple The Label jumper, $168, from Goodness Boutique

This oversized knit jumper is just chunky enough, featuring a smock neckline and slightly cropped length.

This button-up from Huffer has a hint of grunge — which feels appropriate for a brand that has its design roots in 90s skateboarding.

Insert some colour into your winter wear, with this cartoonish and stripy knit.

Vero Moda coat, $190, from Farmers

This coat features a distinct texture, to add interest to ensembles with minimalist character.

These wide-leg trousers are a crisp yet comfortable addition to an office-affectionate wardrobe.

An enveloping cardigan is easy to pair with the simplest of outfit bases (think jeans and a white tee). This one from Huffer is a chocolatey choice.

If you’re seeking a puffer jacket, without overwhelming volume, this Karen Walker variety might suit. It has a relaxed and slightly oversized fit, but the pillowing layer is a slimmer fit than your average puff.

Cheery, bright and 100% merino wool; these gloves are warming in style and spirit.

Appropriately, this Daydream top from local designer Jojo Ross is soft and cloudy (it also features flared sleeves).

Layering is key to a supportive winter wardrobe. This rollneck layer will aid your everyday dressing.

This overshirt is an earthy and textural option for your outerwear (and features utilitarian snap closure buttons).

This relaxed quarter-zip knit, spun from a speckled yarn, is designed for the weekends.

These snug and ribbed mohair gloves are a statement-making accessory.

Sick of all the grey? Look forward to spring’s crisp days with this bright sky-blue jumper.

Find a seasonal antidote in this copper rib-knit beanie (it also comes in an icier lilac purple).

This faded blue and pink scarf will stand out over darker coats and jackets.

This cropped cardigan is touted as a “wardrobe hero”. Layer over a simple T-shirt and jeans ensemble or an enveloping maxi dress.
