OUT FOR DINNER

Dressing for dinner can be an ultimate styling dilemma during Winter’s bitter chill. Luckily for our readers, Monde has come up with an unfaultable formula that will have you looking cool while staying warm.

Introducing the Kaylee Block Check Blanket Scarf from the Iconic. A scarf that’s snug and makes the same statement that circa 1995 and Cher Horowitz did? Sign us up for all things black and yellow check please!

Draped over an ensemble that considers both practicality and style, you can’t go past a classic black blazer from Aje and Agolde leather pants. Add a little dimension to this otherwise monochromatic look with a charcoal long sleeve from Nordstrom, Fendi pumps and of course, a statement scarf.

It’s easy to feel a little uninspired when it comes to your work wardrobe rotation. The key to this conundrum? Keep basics, basic and ignite some excitement with functional accessories.

This giant scarf from Burberry is the perfect staple solution. In Burberry’s signature house check and made of 100% cashmere, the iconic design is easy to fall for.

Create a base for your bougie neck blanket with an Alexander McQueen crepe skirt and classic pumps from Nine West. Pick up your go-to, fits everything bag like this one from Prada and drape your scarf over a slick, black, Bottega bodysuit.

When dressing for the workplace – keep it neutral, keep it professional and at this price point, keep it forever.

BRUNCH

Other than the non-negotiable oat milk latte and croissant, our go to brunch order here at Monde, is warm, wearable fashion.

It’s important to be quality conscious when finding your perfect breakfast accessory. Worn for just three or four months of the year, Fendi’s FF-logo scarf is the perfect purchase if you’re looking for a long-term investment.

Build your look with earth-toned knits like this one from Ganni and a staple pair of Nobody Denim jeans. Marry it all together by wrapping yourself up in a tobacco brown scarf that stays true to your designer loving roots.

Accessorise with brown Prada sunglasses and croc mules from Bottega and voila! You have the bougie brunch attire of your dreams.

ON A WALK

Excessive banana bread baking in your favourite pair of loungewear was a fond past time for many in 2020. And Melbourne’s current COVID lockdown has sent us back into these same old habits – including the resurgence of long leisurely, outdoor walks.

To beat the cold breeze on your Winter walk, we suggest investing in a vibrant, mohair blend scarf from Spanish luxury fashion house, Loewe.

Not only is this scarf bound to bring some brightness into your day but will keep the big chill at bay. Pair with athleisure in a muted palette from the likes of SKIMS, Adidas and Reiss for the ultimate statement.

We implore you to go crazy with colour and create your own sunshine this Winter.

ERRAND RUN

This Winter, errand meets outing. With an elevated take on comfortable clothing, Acne Studio’s alpaca blend scarf is the perfect addition to any loungewear-esk Winter ensemble.

During icy mornings it can be hard to haul yourself out of the comfortable abode that is your bed. Our solution? Dress in your favourite pair of SIR the label loungewear, slide on a C&M coat and wrap yourself up in an obnoxiously large Acne scarf to seriously combat the cold.

Known for their bold colour ways and scarves with copious length and volume, these cosy neck blankets are made to cover you up in both comfort and style.
