Editor’s Winter Picks By Debbie Snooke

Whilst recently roaming the inspirational streets of Melbourne’s CBD, it dawned on me…. Winter is only just beginning and there are Winter clothing sales everywhere!!

With at least another 3 months of cold weather to endure, it can be a great idea to pick up a few fabulous Winter pieces on sale.

Crown Jewels has compiled a list of great basic Winter pieces focusing on great shapes and divine fabrics for your consideration.

Best coat“The coat you have when you are not having a coat”… The black or charcoal angora easy to throw on coat by Scanlan Theodore. Light weight but oh so warm and looks fabulous over anything!! Yes, I am biased. It has been worn five days a week!!
