Chestnuts roasting on an open fire… Jack Frost nipping at your nose… Sure, it may not be Christmas (and if it were, we’d be in boardshorts and thongs), but we’re definitely walking in a winter wonderland lately!

Winter has come at us with abandon this year, and while we’ve all complained once or twice about the bitter chill in the air, there are upsides to the wintery weather. It’s so satisfyingly cosy to sit by the fireplace or heater with a warm mug of tea in one hand and a good book in the other, listening to the rain outside. Or a steaming hot chocolate in both hands and a comforting show streaming in front of you— we’re big fans of both options! The long summers that extend into autumn often leave us dreaming of such pleasures, and here they are, waiting for us to enjoy them.

For those of us with fashion at the forefront of our minds no matter the weather, the possibility of new winter clothes is our first thought when the seasons change. It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to our summer clothes for the next six plus months, but on the other hand, it’s just plain sweet to welcome stylish winter coats and adorable scarves and beanies back into our wardrobe rotation!

We can’t wait for new winter coats and winter jackets to drop in our favourite stores, welcoming us to the winter of 2022. We’re halfway into winter already, so if you haven’t scoured the shops for your new women’s winter clothes (or men’s winter clothes) yet, now is the perfect time to do so!

This blog takes you shopping through Eltham, and the kid’s, women’s, and men’s winter clothes stores with fashion for the whole family. Whether you’re looking for winter dresses, puffer jackets, or fleece-lined leggings, you’ll find everything you need for winter right here in Eltham!

Dress For A Hazy Shade Of Winter

Are you heading up to the snow this winter? If so, we’re jealous! Zipping down the slopes before retreating inside and exchanging a ski outfit for fashionable winter clothes sounds like heaven to us. But not being at the snow doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy winter fashion! It’s certainly cold enough in our corner of the world to throw on a sweater dress and a wool coat and hit the streets for a brunch outing that could grace the cover of a fashion magazine. So let’s get shopping for that cute winter outfit!

  1. Mojo On Main

Mojo on Main, specifically at 972- 974 Main Street in Eltham (in the Midway Arcade), has you covered from head to toe this winter. From fashionable footwear that will keep your feet snuggly and warm to knitwear, accessories, and winter essentials that are as cute as they are practical, Mojo on Main is your one-stop shop for winter fashion.

Winter coats and jackets are a winter staple, and thanks to their neutrality, they seem to stay in style year after year. You won’t regret investing in a gorgeous blazer, winter coat, or puffer jacket that you can take from this winter to the next and beyond.

Mojo on Main offers everything from effortlessly chic coverups that you can throw on over your party dress at the end of the night to relaxed linen blazers that will have you winning Best Dressed in no time. We love the Contrast Detail Coat, available in both pink/grey and grey/beige for the perfect winter coat that will stand the test of time. Whether you’re into colour or neutrals, this gorgeous coat will have you stand out for all the right reasons, wherever you go.

Accessories can really make an outfit pop, and Mojo on Main know it! They stock a wide range of accessories that will take your outfit to the next level, no matter your style. Sunglasses, belts, and earrings are smaller pieces that can certainly take your outfit from a 9 to a 10, and as well as making your winter outfit pop, they can be worn all year round.

Speaking of accessories, you can never go wrong with a winter scarf! These will keep you warm all winter long, and with Mojo on Main’s selection of styles in different colours and patterns, you could wear a different one for each day of the week and always be the most chic in the office!

We love the Stripe Border Scarf in yellow and grey for a pop of summery colour amidst the winter neutrals, giving you an extra pep in your step even before your morning coffee. For something more subtle that will also take you from winter to spring and beyond, the Floral Tassel Scarf in navy gives those fashionable corporate vibes that strike the perfect balance. Whatever you need for your winter wardrobe, Mojo on Main will have it and more!

  1. Ingazi

Inzagi’s Eltham store at 50 Commercial Place offers stunning new arrivals that will make this winter your most stylish yet. Their tops, shirts, and sweaters are in a class of their own with their uniqueness and comfortability, making them the perfect eye-catching pieces that will have you turning heads on the street.

Looking for something punchy and colourful to wear to your catchup with friends? One Teaspoon’s Sprayed Graffiti Sweater is calling your name! This cute crew is made from a mid-weight fabric that will keep you warm while still allowing you to breathe, thanks to being 100% cotton and a relaxed fit.

Meanwhile, the Esmaee Hutton Coat may just be the winter coat you’ve been searching for for years. This classic black double-breasted is made from wool and polyester and includes side pockets and a removable waist tie, making it easy to wear as well as look good in. What could be better?!

Or are you heading for a night out on the town? Socialising doesn’t take a break over winter, after all! The Esmaee Solitude Top pairs perfectly with jeans or the 2nd Skin Bronte Maxi Skirt for clubbing, watching a show, or enjoying dinner out at a restaurant. Not only is it super cute, but it is also made from a lux satin fabrication, helping you to feel as fancy as you look.

As for accessories, when we saw The Artist Label His Eyes Wool Scarf at Inzagi, we couldn’t take our own eyes off it! Not only is this scarf strikingly gorgeous, but being made of wool, you can count on it to keep that chilly breeze off your neck in even the coldest of temperatures.

All scarves by The Artist Label are limited edition and designed by international artists, so you know you’ll be sporting a one-of-a-kind accessory that will have everybody asking where you got it. Don’t keep the secret to yourself— send them to Inzagi where they can find their own distinctive piece to wear themselves or gift to a friend (maybe you!).

  1. Run to the River

Run to the River has you sorted not only for clothing but also for jewellery, homewares, and gifts. You may head in looking for something for yourself or a gift for a friend, but we can’t guarantee you won’t come out with both!

It’s hard to know where to start when you enter Run to the River at 9 Dudley Street in Eltham, as everything seems to catch your eye. You want to check out the cute winter clothes, but there’s also adorable stationery, ceramics, and accessories— dilemma! Whatever you do, make sure you allocate enough time to browse everything Run to the River has to offer when you make your way here.

Winter dresses should be a part of your winter wardrobe, and if they’re not already, Run to the River will fix that right up! You may think of dresses as spring and summer outfits, but with tights or fleece-lined leggings, dresses are here to stay all year round.

Enter: The Paradise Shift Dress. This stunner is made to skim your body rather than hug it tightly, and while its design is simple, its print is anything but. Splashes of colour against a deep black, floaty fabric— count us in! Complete the effortless look with a pair of combat boots and the Soft Angora Beanie for a graceful winter style.

When we said fashion for the whole family, you didn’t think we forgot the furry, four-legged family members, did you? Our dogs are our children, and they deserve to be spoilt as much as we do! Run to the River will dress your doggie to the nines with its Nice Digs leather dog collars, available in fun prints like Memphis Confetti and Animal Lilac. These collars are hand-painted, making them as individual as your pup is.

Whether you have a softie or a scary (or a softie dressed as a scary), there’s a Nice Digs collar to suit. We love the Smooth Spike Memphis Tan— rounded point spikes in cute colours say they’re tough but in a family-friendly way.

With winter clothes, accessories, and gifts for every person and pet you know, run, don’t walk, to Run to the River today!

  1. Kids of Eltham

Cute winter clothes don’t get any cuter than miniature versions! Kids of Eltham, in the Eltham Mall, stocks the coolest brands in kids’ and babies’ fashion and accessories that will have them looking even cuter than they already are (who knew that was even possible?!).

Whatever your child needs, Kids of Eltham will have it. Kids puffer jackets? Check! Sweaters? Check! The sweetest little beanies? Check! Rain overalls? Check! You’ll find clothing and accessories for kids of all ages, sizes, and identities at Kids of Eltham, so don’t be surprised if all the other parents at playgroup start asking you for kids’ fashion advice! Whether your child is a baby, toddler, 10-year-old, or teen, Kids of Eltham knows what kids (and parents) like and has it in spades.

Is there anything cuter (or more practical) than kids’ rainboots? We didn’t think so! Kids will locate a puddle and be splashing away in it in a second, so rain boots are a winter essential. The Crywolf Gumboots come in just about any colour you could imagine, and run up to size 33. Waterproof and hard-wearing, they’re tested to strict European standards and are free from nickel, pthalates, formaldehyde, and paraffins, so you can be confident they’re as safe as they are durable.

If you’ve found it tough to find cute boys clothes, look no further! Kids of Eltham believes in adorableness for all and stocks a wide range of clothes and accessories for the more masculine playground monkeys. Cardigans, hoodies, and crew jumpers will keep them warm as they play this winter, and once they’ve warmed up they’ll have their cool top or tee underneath so they won’t lose any street cred.

And if you thought kids fashion ended once they get home, think again! Sleepwear from Kids of Eltham will keep them warm and snuggly in their beds all night. In their sleepwear section, you’ll find Ergopouch sleepsuits for the littlies, made from breathable natural fibres and GOTS-certified organic cotton. Then when they’re old enough to have chosen (or been assigned) their favourite AFL team, it’s time to transition to flannelette toddler sleepwear that shows their support for their team. Cats, Tigers, and Hawks, oh my!

When your plan is to keep your child warm, dry, and stylish all at the same time, you can’t go past Kids of Eltham.
