If the recent cool weather is anything to go by, Winter is certainly just around the corner! It's time to ditch our summer threads and embrace the new season trends.
Over the weekend (April 10-11) Adelaide's premiere shopping district Rundle Mall hosted several fashion parades showcasing the newest and must have fashion pieces available from their retailers.
The fashion parades showcased varying styles, trends and looks for every person and every occasion. From sleek corporate wear and relaxed leisure wear, to smart suiting and casual street wear. We picked out some of the winning and must have trends you need to incorporate into your wardrobes this chilly season.

And the verdict... This season its all about comfort and keeping warm. Hallelujah!
Oversized knits in neutral tones, like ivory, blush and camel dominated the runway by all major retailers. Popular styles included knit dresses and high-neck full sleeve jumpers, which are easily paired back with boots or dressed up with a pair of heels . And if you're feeling a little adventurous try oversized tops with long midi skirts or culottes. The oversized trend is also a winner for the guys this winter. Think oversized military coats, jumpers, and yes...man cardigans. Guys, if you're not loving this idea.. just imagine how irresistible (adorable and snuggly) your GF/the female population will find you!

We saw the midi length skirt and dress sneak into our wardrobes last A/W. Thankfully this sleek, elegant but equally stylish trend is here to stay for another season. Whether you lead a corporate life or love how leggy they make you look, the midi length is here to stay, and there is literally a cut, print and fabric for everyone out there. This season we are loving the midi with an oversized coat, top or knit for that uber comfy and seamlessly chic demeanour.

Get Trenchy With It!
Trench coats haven't really ever gone out of style, but this season they are the IT coat for both guys and gals. It's the type of coat that can be easily taken from day to night and can be partnered with literally any item in your wardrobe.

Another Winter 2015 trend that actually serves its purpose; the humble trench, leather jackets (real or faux) have always been a wardrobe must have. This season sees the leather jacket take on a more masculine edge (for both the ladies and gents). For girls, wear it with your favourite boyfriend jeans and crisp cotton shirt, or throw it over your LBD for the ultimate winter going out outfit. Guys, wear it with everything! Wear it with your chinos, denim pants, shirts or polos. Literally anything.
