THERE is not a lot to get excited about when the colder months roll in – except delving into your winter wardrobe.

Great pleasure comes from ditching your worn-out summer T and tired-looking sandal and reaching for a favourite denim jacket and knee-high boot.

I chatted to Leith Groves of iconic Leederville boutique Varga Girl about her favourite garments to get you embracing the chill.

Her inspiration this season comes from velvet, leather, tartan and ’90s styling, including the ‘in’ hair accessory of the moment: scrunchies.
