Fashion is all about having fun and expressing yourself. And what better way to do that than by rocking a trendy animal print dress?
Animal prints have been popular for centuries, but they've made a major comeback in recent years. Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, animal print is having its moment again.
Update your winter wardrobe by mixing these cold-weather staples with fresh ideas!
Knitwear is one of the most versatile staples you can add to your winter wardrobe. And while they may be the most tried and tested trend against dropping temperatures, there are a number of ways to level up this classic.
Thinking of fresh ways to style your favourite cosy knits or looking for a new favourite to add to your list? Then having an assortment of stylish staples lined up and ready for rotation is essential. From laid-back casual to elevated style, from lightweight shrugs to fluffy cardis, knitwear statement pieces are here to get you ready for when the cold creeps in.
Here are 5 knitwear fashion trends in 2022 that deserve a spot in your winter wardrobe.
1. The Universal Button-Up Knit
This fashion favourite is the most comfortable knitwear for women to cuddle in during winter. Ideal for an everyday look, it’s a classic piece that you wear on its own, tucked into pants or a midi skirt and paired with some booties to create your new go-to outfit.
This Billie Knit Button-Up gives fierce fashion without the frumpy feel that you sometimes get from oversized knits. Looks especially cute paired with slim-fit pants and boots for a sexy silhouette.
2. Nothing Adds a Pop of Fun or a Punch of Cool Quite Like Prints
When styled right, cardigans can be quite a statement piece! A great way to add personality to your everyday cardi is by injecting patterns into your ensemble. Look effortlessly chic while staying comfy by pairing your printed knit sweater with jeans, or choose straight-up glam with leather.
The great thing is, that there’s always a perfect print to match your mood. Be the darling of dopamine dressing with some sweet floral patterns. Or, sport a sophisticated girl-on-the-go look with a lightweight animal print cardi.
3. Take It to The Next Level with Texture
How about adding dimension to your overall look with texture? It’s the best way to pull off a preppy, polished girl look with an uber-relaxed vibe. If you want to play the layering game, wear it with a skirt, belt, some long boots, and an oversized coat. Or, go monochromatic by teaming it up with pants and shoes in the same colour. And because of the added volume, it’s important to choose one with a drape that flatters.
4. Not Like Your Nana’s Chunky Cardi
This winter staple has gone a long way from how Grandma used to wear them. This modern take on the chunky, oversized knit has to be our favourite. The Jacquard Cardi in this gorgeous shade of tan is cute, comfortable and effortlessly chic. An easy way to make it look sassy is by rocking one shoulder bare. Or, stand out from the crowd of solids with a lovely multicoloured crochet pullover like the Bee Madison Carly Cardi.
5. Meet Your Transeasonal Soulmate
The easy and effortless shrug makes the list, of course! This trendy, lightweight piece is top of mind regardless of season or occasion.
Give your otherwise ordinary outfit a facelift — add a solid coloured shrug for a brighter look. Pair it with your everyday casuals like high waist jeans and a fitted top and you are good to go (and looking extra cool, too!).
Shrugs also work well with layers. Create an interesting and vibrant contrast with various cuts and colours. Midi skirt outfits paired with a long cardigan make for one stylish outfit that will keep you cosy and looking chic while running errands. Fancy a night out? You can layer a lightweight, long-sleeved cardi with a mini, a pair of stockings and some knee-high boots.
Remember, these knits transcend seasons and generations for a reason. So don’t be afraid to splurge on more than one, especially if it makes you look and feel good!
Take your pick! Which one (or two!) would you wear this season?

3 Easy Ways to Make Your Dress Winter-Friendly
Transition from summer to winter, without having to say goodbye to your favourite dresses.
You’re probably wondering what to do with your collection of summer dresses from seasons past now that we’re well into winter fashion in Australia. If you want to get the most out of your dresses year-round, you can mix and match them with winter essentials to create a variety of fabulous outfit ideas.
Here are some clever ways to keep your fun, flirty frocks in rotation all year long.
We Love Us Some Layers
First on the agenda is learning to master the art of layering. It’s always a good option to start with outerwear that can look good paired with just about anything. One that always does the trick is an Aussie winter essential --- a mid-blue wash denim jacket. It adds a cool vibe without the bulk. It’s also the perfect shade to pair with your favourite white summer dress.
If you need an outfit that you can take to the office or a night out, choose a cover-up that adds a touch of polish. Look sleek and sophisticated in a neat fit jacket over a playful, printed dress.
Another clever layering trick is wearing your dress over a turtleneck or a long-sleeved tee. You’ll look fresh and modern in an instant!
Finish It Up with The Right Footwear
Boots and dresses are a match made in winter heaven. From knee-high styles to versatile ankle cuts, there’s a perfect pair to finish off your fabulous look. So, swap out those summer-ready sandals for a sassier option.
Tall boots, on the other hand, work great with minis. Flat knee-high boots in black, brown, or tan are perfect for all kinds of outfits. Pair them with a statement piece summer dress in animal print and get ready to turn heads.
Combine bold colours and playful summer prints with darker neutrals and warm tones to complement the cooler season. Consider adding a smartly knotted scarf over your winter layers. Or if you’re feeling a bit playful, introduce a touch of texture to your overall outfit by slipping on some tights. And, complete your cool girl-on-the-go look with a nice leather sling bag.
These are tried and tested fashion hacks to turn your summer dress into a trans-seasonal must-have. Feeling inspired but not sure where to start?

Dress your jumpsuit up or down with the use of clever layering techniques and accessorising to suit the occasion.
Here are some style inspirations to nail trans-seasonal dressing for your favourite one-piece.
Black is the new Black
Always fashionable and classy, you can’t go wrong with a basic black jumpsuit. Choose one with a relaxed fit and wide leg, like the Bee Madison Sophia Jumpsuit, for a perfect mix of comfort and confidence.
For a casual look in warmer weather, you’ll want to wear it with sneakers or sandals and a nice sling bag. Fancy a night out? Instantly look posh by adding a textured belt, heels, and some dazzling earrings. Plus, by adding a belt to your jumpsuit, you’ll help define your waist.
Slip on a black leather jacket or blazer to layer on an edgier look in Winter. Or, cosy up with a vibrant Festival Shrug to brighten up this otherwise neutral look.
Playful in Print
When choosing a jumpsuit that will see you through the changing seasons, look for one with a timeless pattern, like this Leopard Print Overall.
While the weather is still warm, pair this jumpsuit with a sleeveless tee and espadrilles. Once it cools, opt for longer sleeves and trendy boots. Easily dress up this fabulous statement piece with elegant accessories and a clutch.
Colour Me Casual
No trans-seasonal wardrobe would be complete without a pop of solid colour. Remember to choose one in a flattering shade and in a cut that complements any body shape, like this Rayon Overall in Tan.
It’s cute, comfortable, and effortlessly chic. Want to turn it up a notch? Layer your outfit with a denim jacket --- it’s the perfect outerwear to take this casual jumpsuit into colder weather. Add on a nice pair of leather ankle boots to complete this laidback look.

The shrug will always be in style!
Shrug clothes will continue to be a versatile fashion piece that can transform your outfit for any occasion. It can be dressed up or down and is ideal for layering. Whether you are dressing for work, going out on the town, or just relaxing at home, there is a shrug look for you!
In this post, we'll look at what shrugs are, the different types of shrugs available and how to style them to create chic looks.
What Is A Shrug Clothing?
A shrug is a short, cropped jacket or cardigan. It can have short or long sleeves and come in a variety of fabrics and styles.
They can be made from wool, cotton, or even cashmere. Some shrugs are meant to be worn as outerwear, while others are more suitable for layering.
What Are The Different Types of Shrug Women's Clothing?
There are many different types of shrugs available in our store. While each type is somewhat similar, each carries its own unique style that can help create a one-of-a-kind look.
Here are some of the most popular that you should add to your wardrobe:
The circle cardigan is a cropped, circular jacket with long sleeves. It's perfect for layering over dresses or tops which makes it a comfortable yet timeless fashion piece.
The festival shrug sports a shorter cuffed sleeve with a similar long curved hem. Adding this piece to your wardrobe will give you the chance to flaunt your outfits all year round. Its soft, lightweight fabric accentuates your figure while still providing warmth and coverage.
Similar to the festival shrug, the mini shrug also has shorter sleeves. The difference lies in its length, which is shorter. The mini shrug hits at the upper thighs or lower hip, making it a crowd favourite.
How To Style Shrug Clothing
Now that we've gone over what shrugs are and the different types available, let's take a look at how to style them.
There are many ways to wear shrug clothing, but here are seven of the most popular:
Cover a Dress or Jumpsuit
One way to style a shrug is to wear it over a dress to add some extra coverage. This is a terrific option for a formal occasion or a night out on the town. For this style, cropped shrugs work best. For example, pair a bold cobalt blue mini shrug with an animal print dress to add a touch of fun and flair.
If you are attending a formal event, such as a wedding, you can style your shrug into an elegant look. For this style, choose a shrug in black or white. Pair it with dress pants and heels for a chic ensemble.
Another way to style a shrug is to wear it over a casual top. This is a great option for everyday wear. A simple black circle cardigan shrug will work wonders over a simple white tee shirt and jeans.
Shrugs are not just for winter! Summertime is the perfect time to break out a white or pastel shrug. Pair it with a sundress or shorts and a tank top for a cute, summery look.
Accessorise to Your Heart's Content
You can also style your shrug by adding some fun accessories. A scarf, brooch or belt can add some extra interest to your outfit. This is a great way to personalise your look and make it your own.
Pair with Jeans
Another great way to style a shrug is to pair it with jeans. This is a casual look that can be dressed up or down depending on the type of shrug you choose. For this style, opt for a long festival shrug over one of your favourite pairs of jeans.
A shrug makes a great cover-up for your swimsuit. It can provide some extra coverage while still allowing you to show off your beautiful beach bod. A festival shrug that compliments your swimsuit while covering up is the perfect choice for this style.
Use Your Shrug Clothing To Elevate Your Style
The versatility of shrug clothing knows no bounds. Whether you are looking for a way to add some extra coverage or simply want to elevate your style, shrugs are an excellent choice. With so many different types and styles available, there is sure to be a shrug that is perfect for you. So go ahead and get inspired!

You know the phrase ‘look good, feel good?’ How about the saying, ‘wear what makes you happy’?
This year, the Dopamine fashion trend is combining both for style that sparks joy. And it’s actually easier to execute than you may think! Here’s how you can shop yourself happy by injecting your wardrobe with mood booster outfits that make you feel great.
First Things First, What is Dopamine Dressing?
It’s feel-good fashion, literally.
Dopamine Dressing is all about boosting your mood with the use of colour, texture, and shape.
So you might be asking yourself, “Can a brightly-coloured skirt or sweater really make me happier?” Surprisingly, the answer is YES! In fact, it’s backed by science.
Just like Serotonin, Dopamine is a chemical made in your brain that strongly affects your mood, attention, and motivation. Having high levels of these ‘happy hormones’ can make you feel fantastic. Shaikila Forbes-Bell, fashion psychologist and author of the forthcoming book Big Dress Energy, explains this further, “When you wear something you associate with happiness, you embody that emotion and feel happy.”
Wear the Trend
Start your day by radiating positivity.
Dopamine Dressing is all about wearing things that make you feel happy, comfortable, and confident. That being said, it’s also incredibly personal and subjective. This makes it the perfect opportunity to take control of your style and direct it into what makes you feel fabulous from within. So here are some tips to embrace the happy!
1. Keeping it Cool with Colour
Dressing for your happiness is an especially amazing trend for women over 35 to follow. Done well, it’ll enhance and warm your complexion for that much-desired youthful glow. And while it may seem intimidating for some, there’s actually the perfect bright colour for everyone. Begin by choosing hues that work well with your skin tone.
The key is to start slowly --- snag that comfy cardi in a bright fuschia for a pop of fun. Or, keep it casual yet classy in a red tee. Layer your favourite stylish shrug and add spunk to an otherwise neutral outfit.
2. Play with Patterns
Dopamine dressing isn’t limited to just colour. It’s also about wearing patterns and punchy pieces that make you feel good. Add spring to your step with a flirty, floral dress. Or, embrace this trend in head-to-toe gingham, animal print, and more.
3. Take Texture to Trend
Surround yourself with fabric that makes you smile. Cosy up in a stylish yet super comfy sweater. Choose clothes that are well-cut and figure-enhancing --- like soft joggers pants and knitted coats that make you want to cuddle.
Remember, there’s a bit of Dopamine out there for us all. So take a peek into your wardrobe and find existing pieces that you have an emotional connection with. Then add on to that fashionable finds that truly excite.

Bring Out the Basics

Basic doesn’t mean boring! These are classic wardrobe essentials that’ll last you across all seasons. The secret is to choose the right basics for you.
A Nice Crisp Tee

A Go-To LBD
Of course, every woman’s closet should have the ever-versatile little black dress. Choose a figure-flattering length and cut to give you the perfect silhouette. This fun, flirty and feminine Freez Cheetah Dress is an easy pick that can take you from work to a fabulous night out.
Keeping it simple with staples is the perfect strategy for a minimalist, yet fashionably fresh wardrobe. The tricky part is keeping your look from being bland. Neutrals have a tendency to look plain when not paired with other pieces that could enhance the outfit.

Bring your tees to life by wearing them under a colourful cardi or pairing them with unique printed pants. They go perfectly with apron dresses and casual jumpsuits too!

They’re sophisticated and unique, easy to dress up or down, and there are so many varieties to choose from that you’ll find one that suits you no matter what your style.
For a cosy yet chic look, a Rayon Overall is essential! Wear it with a long-sleeve tee and fashionable sneakers for the perfect style. Or if you’re out to make a stunning statement, have fun with it and opt for a gorgeous animal print jumpsuit and layer it with a lovely shrug.
Make Transitional Dressing a Breeze
As you can see… styling for autumn can be easy and fun! If you don’t have all the pieces you need, it's never too late to upgrade your wardrobe. The best part of it all is whatever you choose, it’ll be a great transition into winter, and most if not all of these garments can be worn all year round!
Surprise mum with a chic & comfy outfit
Mother's Day is just around the corner with less than 2 weeks to go.
Have you already decided on a gift for your dear mum? If not, don’t fret! You’ve still got a little bit of time…
For this special occasion, you can never go wrong with a fun and affordable ladies’ outfit! A gift like this will without a doubt bring a smile to her face and make her feel loved and special. All you need is a little creativity, the right fashion tips, and a sense of what would look lovely on your mum.
Read on to learn 4 insightful tips to help you find the perfect clothing gift for mum!
4 Tips For Finding The Perfect Clothing Gift For Mother's Day
1. Know her style.
When deciding how to choose the right clothing gift, you need to identify your mum’s fashion preferences. Ask yourself:
What does she wear on a day-to-day basis?
Does she prefer casual wear or perhaps she likes to dress up when going out with her friends?
Chances are, there'll be a pattern to the types of fashion pieces that your mum wears regularly. Once you figure out this, shopping for mum will be fun and easy!
2. Think About Colours, Prints, and Fabrics.
Understanding your mum’s style goes hand-in-hand with knowing what colours, prints, and fabrics she likes to wear.
For instance, do you often see her wearing animal print styles?
Or perhaps she likes donning simple draw-me tops?
Also, make it a point to consider what colours complement your mum’s skin complexion and hair colour.
It's all about getting the balance right and selecting pieces in the right colours, prints, and fabrics that best suit your mum.
3. Discover her correct size.
Another important thing to do is make sure you buy the clothing piece(s) in the correct size for your mum. You wouldn’t want to give her a gift that doesn’t fit, right?
When you’re able to identify her clothing size, you’ll save her from the hassle of exchanging it for a different size, or worse, returning your gift altogether…
To discover her correct size, you may have to go on an investigative hunt, but we promise, it’ll be worthwhile! Here are a few ways we recommend finding her size:
Next time you’re on Zoom with or in the presence of your mum, consider subtly asking her in conversation. Just make sure you don’t make it obvious that it’s for a gift!
Another way is to ask a family member, ideally one who lives with her. Have them (or you can do this too if you live at home) sneak into her closet when she’s not around to get a peek into her size. This can definitely do the trick… just make sure you don’t get caught!
4. Shop her body shape.
There are many types of body shapes for women: pear, hourglass, straight, or apple shape. Take the time to get a clear picture of your mum and determine her body shape.
If she is a pear, apple, or hourglass, then she’s likely got some curves. Knowing this, make sure you select pieces that define her waist and deflect attention away from the areas of her body that she may feel are unflattering.
At Freez, we diligently work to gather all measurements for each style in our catalog to serve you better. We currently offer generous sizes ranging from Small (8-10) to Triple XL (20-22) for many of our fashion staples.
The Joy in Giving a Fun and Meaningful Gift
Mother’s Day is one of the perfect days that you can express your love for your dear mum. And you can do this by finding the perfect gift for her. Sure, there are a lot of gifts you can give, but among many others, a chic, modern, and affordable clothing piece is sure to make her smile and feel special. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing your mum open a gift that fills her with excitement and joy!
Keep your mum fashionable by exploring our Freez clothing catalog today! We create everyday fun and affordable styles that your mum (and you) can wear all year round!
