Specifically, I'm going to Melbourne and yes I know it's winter there! I'm thinking of bringing this coat, some turtlenecks, fleeces, hoodies, jeans, boots. Do I need thermals? Or hat/gloves/scarf? Thanks!!!
Hello sweetpea! Yay! You're coming to Melbourne! I suggest you bring some very warm clothes! It get's around 1'C (at it's coldest) to 15'C (maximum). The coldest it will be during the day is 10'C and it can drop down lower 😐 Bring -scarves -beanies -gloves -thermals -nice warm socks -turtlenecks sound great! -fleeced hoodies -that coat looks good to! (Have you got a coat that stops around your waist to? That will be good) is it waterproof?
People wear those boots with the fleece/sheepskin inside the boots here as well (that is very fashionable) if you have them, bring them to.
People tend to wear very sporty clothes here like Northface, Adidas, Nike, reebok if you know what I mean. If you want to know what Melbourne fashion is like, it's very sporty, yet comfortable.
At night people dress up really nice for the night life! So bring some nice (smart casual things to wear, and heels if you want to)
I hope you have fun here! Let me know if you need help with anything? 😬
I live in Brisbane and it's really not that cold, a light jacket or jumper (hoodie) is enough. However, Melborn is colder but I still think that jacket might be overdoing it. I'm also sure you don't thermals. I checked the weather there and on avg it's like 5-10 degrees cooler there than in Brissy. I think a medium jacket is more than enough. I also don't think you need gloves. It never gets bellow 40...
I don't think it gets extremely cold during the winter in Australia. I've seen several Australian users here talk about how they've never seen snow because it never gets cold enough for that. I don't live there though so I could be wrong. Lol
I know @mooky06 is Australian and I think I've seen her mention that she lives in Melbourne so she would probably be much more helpful than me :)
Ok its good you're smart enough to realize summer in America is going to be winter in Australia! (Must be weird having Christmas in summer lol?) So their winters usually last June to August. So its already warming off a tad bit, so you won't need to go over the top with snow wear. Its definitely not extremely cold there but MOST DEFINITELY bring coats and wear layers! image.dhgate.com/albu_213206441_00/1.0x0.jpg Cute AND cozy (win, win!) This reminds me more of a stroll in New York during December, but who cares its so stylish. s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/.../...69d774291c.jpg But, I may bring bring a snow coat if I were you just to be safe, and you may go skiing or snowboarding? Also, one last thing, yes bring scarfs and winter boots maybe some beanies too. fashionmagzen.info/.../3-warm-winter-outfits.jpg Please wear that lol, so cute
