    If you live in Australia, or any other country with an unreasonably unstable climate, you'll know the struggle of getting dressed in the morning.


    And as we head towards winter, we're in for some wacky weather changes.


    Rain to sunshine and freezing to ridiculously hot โ€” we've got to be prepared.

    To get your wardrobe ready, here are some pieces that you can layer โ€” so that when the weather warms up, you can strip down to an equally gorgeous look.


    These are *Italian chef's kiss.*

    1. This skirt by Collusion that will go with absolutely everything. And the best part? It has a bag attachment, so you won't even need to carry a purse.


    Collusion is a go-to brand for me when I'm looking for clothes I can dress from grunge to chic. This skirt in particular is perfect for when you're not sure if it's going to stop raining anytime soon, but you also don't want to sweat into a pair of jeans. It would also look great with t-shirts and turtleneck sweaters.

    Buy it from ASOS for $50.

    2. This oversized vintage motif jacket that would look just as good on a hot day with denim shorts, as it would on a cold one with a knit sweater and slim fitting jeans.


    This jacket is 100% cotton, so it has no stretch, but as it's meant to be worn oversized, that's not really an issue. The copper look buttons are cute AF and it features pockets (yes, actual pockets!) you can use to store your valuables.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XL and six colours).

    3. This bodysuit that will look fabulous beneath a pair of mum jeans and a chunky cardigan.


    This lace bodysuit features intricate patterns that will bring your outfit to the next level. It's partially lined, so your bits will be covered and features adjustable straps for your comfort. Try this baby on with an oversized sweater, so only a peek of the lace shows through, and marvel at how great you look.

    Buy it from Showpo for $49.95 (available in sizes 6-16).

    4. This poncho that's designed for outdoor activities, but is actually hella stylish.


    Rain is a given during this time of the year. At the moment in Sydney, we're definitely in the thick of it. This poncho would look edgy AF with a mesh long sleeved shirt underneath, or a dress and tights, so you just get a peek of the dress while you walk. The possibilities are endless. It's completely waterproof and can be folded down, so you can shove it in your bag with ease when you're not wearing it.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $42.98.

    5. This pack of patterned tights that will add a little warmth and a look of oomph to your outfit the next time you wear something that shows a little leg.


    These would also be cute underneath a pair of ripped mum jeans if you want to add a little flair to your outfit and want to draw attention to your stems. They can also be used to add a touch of sexy to your look the next time you want to impress a special someone โ€” or yourself โ€” with lingerie.

    Buy a pack of four from Amazon Australia for $10.99.

    6. This unbelievably cute kimono that's bound to bring any outfit to the next level.


    Imagine this guy over the top of a black turtleneck sweater with some tailored trousers. Instantly catwalk worthy. Plus, it will add a bit of extra warmth against that ridiculous wind. And although this is technically a men's item, if you're still shopping according to gender, you're missing out on a whole world of styling possibilities.

    Buy it from ASOS for $70.

    7. This cotton sweatshirt that is high neck, so it'll protect your throat against the cool air, but is also a little slouchy, so you can wear it over a t-shirt without looking ridiculous.


    This shirt is make from 100% organic cotton, so it's super breathable and will go with absolutely anything. It also features press-stud buttons, so if you're feeling a little toasty but opted to wear it without anything underneath, pop those babies open for some air.

    Buy it from ASOS for $60.

    8. This sleek and stylish boyfriend blazer that will take a regular t-shirt and jeans to the next level.

    The Iconic

    This blazer has a relaxed, oversized fit, so it'll be incredibly comfortable regardless of what kind of shirt you opt to wear underneath.

    Buy it from The Iconic for $99.99.

    9. This oversized cardigan that will keep you snug and stylish on the breeziest of days.


    Sometimes it's too warm for a jacket, but too windy to go without anything. This midi cardigan has a relaxed and roomy fit, so you can wear it over virtually anything. Plus, it's perfect for sprucing some gym tights and a t-shirt when going from a work-out to brunch.

    Buy it from Showpo for $79.95 (available in three colours and sizes 6-20).

    10. This black turtleneck sweater that can be worn beneath jackets, dresses and t-shirts to warm you up while giving your look an edge.


    These sweaters are so soft and cozy you'll never want to get out of them. They're not super thick like some turtlenecks, but warm enough that you'll be thankful you wore one when the wind hits.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $18+ (available in sizes XS-2XL).

    11. This strappy mini dress that looks incredible on its own, but would look gorgeous with a pair of patterned tights and a t-shirt layered underneath.


    This dress is walking the border between nightwear and daywear, depending on how you choose to style it. With a cardigan and sneakers? Daywear. With big gorgeous earrings and heels? Instant date night look. You can't go wrong!

    Buy it from Showpo for $59.95 (available in sizes 4-20).

    12. This open front tassel shawl that you can wear with or without a jacket for ultimate comfy vibes.


    This shawl is made from super soft and thick fabric, so it'll protect you from the cold without compromising your outfit. The design also goes with just about any look, but particularly well with black, so you know I'm immediately adding this one to cart.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $47.61.

    13. This staple circle skirt that you can wear with a tee or a sweater for a little bit of flirt and a lot of fun.


    Skater skirts have a permanent position in my wardrobe. They're fun, can be worn with just about anything and for basically any event. Dress this one with patterned tights, your favourite boots, a shirt of choice and voilร ! Outfit sorted.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colours).

    14. This classic trench because everyone needs a coat like this in their closet.


    Trench coats have survived the test of the time and the consensus is that they'll never go out of style. Wear this one over trousers and a tee, a dress or even lingerie, I'm not judging.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $53.20.

    15. And finally, this satin button front shirt that will add a little flair to your outfit while protecting you from the elements.

    Pretty Little Thing

    This shirt works as a dress or you could wear it unbuttoned over a shirt and jeans. Wear a lacy bralette underneath and keep the top slightly unbuttoned for a gorgeous date night look.

    Buy it from Pretty Little Thing for $60 (available in size 16-26).
