As the chilly weather slowly but surely creeps its way across the country, many of us are digging into the depths of our wardrobes to pull out our winter warmers.

While keeping cosy is a priority, it's definitely something of an art to do so without looking like a giant woollen snowball.

Thankfully, it’s something celebrity stylist Jules Sebastian knows a thing or two about, and in a new video series, she teams up with Big W to show affordable ways to style yourself and your home for winter.

In the first instalment, the mum-of-two talks through three easy looks to keep you toasty and on trend, without breaking the budget.

Leopard print dress: $30

This breezy, loose-fitting swing dress is an easy one to throw on for the office or dinner with the girls.

It has a high neck, long sleeves and a playful frill at the hem which finishes just above the knee.

“I love a leopard print, I think it should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe,” Jules says in the video.

She adds, “The best part about this dress is that you can take it from day to night or straight into school pick-ups.”

The dress, which Jules styles with a $30 pair of chunky black lace-up boots also from Big W, is available in sizes 6 to 18 and also comes in a black and white print.

Funnel neck knit: $25

Jules loves the detail in this funnel neck jumper, saying, “I can really see the level of design that’s gone into this knit”.

An everyday staple that pairs well with jeans, it features a lovely high neck and is made from recycled yarn.

Meanwhile, in the video, Jules herself is wearing another super affordable knit from Big W, opting for this paprika-coloured batwing jumper.

It’s got a looser fit around the sleeves and a rib-knit mock neckline, plus, and it’s just been reduced to $15.

Reversible aviator jacket: $45

No winter essentials list is complete without a jacket, and this one is nice and cosy, and offers two styling options for just $45.

The aviator jacket is a classic tan colour with a micro-suede outer accented by a sherpa trim, but for a warmer, woolly look, you can turn it inside out to reveal the sherpa finish throughout.

Jules opts for the latter option when styling the jacket with a pair of tailored tan trousers and a black blouse for a smart casual office look. ​​
