A how-to guide to being all dressed up... and completely smitten

Step One
base layer

Start with your merino leggings
- They work under everything!

If you choose 2 or 3 different tops, you can mix and match your look. You can wear them under or over for a different style!

Lightweight (200g), you can even wear them under your jeans.

Leggings are available in black and steel, or if you're feeling a little adventurous, try the stripes.

Leggings can double as the perfect PJ's when you're away... combine your merino camisole (black or ivory) with a long sleeve top (stripes, spots or plain) and you're already warm…

Keep these under layers fitted for maximum heat efficiency. Wear wool socks not cotton if you want really warm tootsies. Wear knee high wool socks over your leggings and under boots for a cosy and fabulous winter look.

Step Two
middle layers

Next is your insulating layer

Put on your favorite swing dress / wrap dress / tulip dress / scoop dress (one of them, not all!), yoga pants, or skirt.

Neutral colours like black, steel, indigo and stone work well for this layer if you want maximum versatility.

We lose up to 60% of our body heat through our head, so it's wise to wear a merino beanie or warm wool hat if you want to be toasty.

Step Three
top layer

Finally - Layer your favourite coloured cardi over your dress

Choose between the long drape cardi, button cardi, plain cardi or the cute crop cardi, all available in 8 colours.

Our smitten scarf is big so it can be used as a wrap on the plane when you're jetting places.

AND LASTLY… ACCESSORISE!! Add a merino scarf (stripes or plain) and a beanie and you're ready for anything.

Extra warmth on your legs is more effective than on your torso.

Some simple rules
for surviving winter

Cotton denim jeans are not warm on their own, especially when the weather is cold AND wet. Cotton absorbs moisture - great for towels, but not for winter clothing.

Merino wicks moisture away, keeping your body warm and responds to changes in body temperature.

Merino dries super fast - perfect if you're travelling. It is also stain repellent so needs less washing.

You can never have too many layers, be confident with them!
