Oh, hello winter. Yes, even in Queensland. HAH. We’ve already had some chilly starts and ends to the days and it takes a whole lot of layering skills to keep things in style AND seasonal.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the cape/wrap/poncho is your layering friend. It’s the kind of piece that not only provides warmth but also adds that interest-adding final touch to your outfit.
The number one key with layering, as I talked about HERE is that you have to be ok with the base layer of your outfit, should you have to remove the top bits. Nail, this and you’ll always feel confident in your winter outfits.
This post features a fabulous cape/wrap from the brave + true autumn-winter 2018 collection. Brave + True is part of the Holiday Trading Co stable of labels. It’s stocked in boutiques all around Australia and you can follow the label on Instagram HERE.

Like all good layering outfits, this one starts with a classic base of white shirt and black pant. Both pieces are easy wear and easy care, making them instant wardrobe favourites.
The knit poncho is the hero here. There is nothing more satisfying that stepping out wearing a blanket – and it being acceptable to do so! It was love at first sight when I clocked the neutral colour combo. It’s a colour mix that you could work back with just about any outfit, yet still adding interest and depth to your winter look. As for the tassels, HELLO. I could not love this finish more.
I’ve worked it back with my fave shade of boots – wheat in the iZZY style from FRANKiE4 Footwear’s autumn-winter 2018 collection.
So, tell me, do you share my love of wearing blanket, I mean capes, outside the home?
