Structured skirts and a leather trench: The 7 things you'll be wearing this winter.

Thanks to our brand partner, MYER

Winter is fast approaching. 

Which inevitably means tucking away our linen shirts and comfortable sandals and replacing them with some new cold weather essentials. 

Understandably, we'd rather be in bed in our comfy jammies but winter should not be stopping us from a night on the town (OKAY? OKAY). And the best part about winter is undeniably the fashion (because it certainly is not the impending frostbite). 

While summer clothes have some sort of sartorial magic wrapped up in the fabrics and colour schemes, winter allows us to collate a bolder and more interesting wardrobe. 

Curating our personalities, the ever-changing trends and the weather around our wardrobes can be a time-consuming and frankly, daunting, task. 

Luckily, Myer has our backs. If you're wanting to refine your closet for the coming months with staples that will last, look no further.

With the help of the new Cue and Veronika Maine AW23 Collections, there are certainly a long list of new pieces to add to your wishlist. Keeping in mind modern silhouettes to frame our bodies (yes that's right, we don't have to trade looking good for being warm anymore) and quality fabrics to sustain for this winter and the next (and the next...), we've decided to help you build your perfect winter wardrobe. 

From structured skirts and oversized coats to leather trenches and dopamine-spiking colours, we've got you covered this season with long-lasting and irresistible quality this winter. 


Below, here are just seven winter pieces the Mamamia team are eyeing this season. 

Veronika Maine Structured Leather Biker Jacket, $799.

You know it's winter when it's finally cold enough to pull out the leather jacket. 

If you're looking for a capsule piece to add to your wardrobe, go for a statement like this one from Veronika Maine. It's designed with a soft curved shoulder line and structured cocoon sleeves. 

It's *the* addition to simplify your closet and add something that will always be in style, and last for years to come. It's versatile enough to wear with a knitted dress, denim jeans and even a mini skirt when you're feeling brave enough to take on the chilly weather. Vibes all around.


Cue Leather Trench, $1150.

You can NEVER go wrong with investing in a trench coat, especially if it's in this caramel brown shade that everyone will be wearing. Winter coats in general are a must-have for any wardrobe in general as they're also the perfect finishing touch to every outfit. 


In saying that, they need to tick A LOT of boxes: versatile, warm, practical and so beautiful that we keep reaching for it. 

Crafted from 100 per cent genuine lamb leather, this coat by Cue is quite literally the most perfect outerwear I have ever seen. It's a piece in your wardrobe you'll wear for years to come, giving it absolute staple status.

Veronika Maine Oversized Houndstooth Coat, $589.

This coat will be one of the most head-turning items in your wardrobe arsenal. Houndstooth will be back in a big way this season – and it's been made fresh with its playful large scale. 

Tailored in an Italian wool blend with a cocoon silhouette, this timeless Veronika Maine coat is really the ideal layering piece for any weekday, or hero piece when dressing to standout for any occasion. You can easily style over a knit dress and finish with knee high leather boots, or let the coat do the talking over jeans and turtleneck top. Versatile, people!

Cue Leather Midi Skirt, $725.

If there's ever a skirt you'd want in your wardrobe, please let it be this one from Cue. 

Here at Mamamia, we've been hearing about readers' insatiable need for a winter skirt that branches out from denim, doesn't feel drab, or too thin and is long enough to keep our legs... fashionable, but also warm. 

This leather skirt comes in black or caramel brown, and is made out of lamb leather. It is not only as soft as they come but is of the highest quality too. 

It's a classic midi design (with a stylish buckle), that implements itself well into any modern working wardrobe.

Cue Scarlet Wool Coat, $850.

Coats are, undeniably, the best way to chic up your wardrobe or any outfit. This Cue Scarlet Wool Coat can literally save the day whenever you're in a style bind. Plus, it's made out of soft Italian wool felt. Basically, it's 1000 per cent going to keep you warm with the chilly months ahead. 

Sometimes when it gets colder, we slip into what becomes a uniform that can unintentionally feel a little uninspiring and colourless. But it's very easy to brighten your wardrobe with a little (or BIG) pop of colour. This coat from Cue has a column silhouette, self-belt and a crisp tailored finish — meaning it will make you stand out in a bold way.

Veronika Maine Lurex Twist Front Knit Dress, $399.

Pack away the sundress and get into this A-line knit from Veronika Maine instead. 

As someone looking for more interesting pieces this winter with some shape and texture, this lurex blend yarn twist front dress is a worthwhile addition to the shopping cart. 

You can pare down with some sneakers and a slouchy coat, or elevate with your favourite pair of leather boots and a stylish cropped jacket. 

Basically, what we're saying is this dress can assist you in many, many ways. 

You can opt for the forest green look or go a bit darker with the aubergine purple colourway.

Cue Soft Lime Shirt Jacket, $455.

If you want a pop of colour in your wardrobe this winter, you should either go big on the yellow, or go home. 

Made out of European cotton, this shirt jacket may just be everything you're looking for to elevate your wardrobe for a fresh modern look that feels trendy... but also timeless. 

We're dreaming about this Soft Lime Shirt Jacket by Cue because it has a utility-style pocket, a zip-through front and is bold enough to be worn with a pair of black jeans or even just with a pair of leather boots. 

You're welcome.
