Jo Bennett loves winter and colour. It's something which serves the Ainslie resident well when dressing for Canberra's freezing cold mornings.
Her wardrobe is home to her colourful coat collection. Each one adds a pop of colour to her black work uniform, on those sub-zero mornings in the capital.
"I love colour. My god, Canberra is becoming so boring, it's becoming every other city in winter, like grey, black. You've got to have colour," she said.
"It's got to have a bit of pop about it. I don't always get dressed up, I like to dag around at home but when I go out I like to have something with colour pop. A signature piece.
"But I'm also a bit of a match, match person so my scarf collection matches my coat collection."
As The Canberra Times headed out on the streets of the capital to talk winter fashion, it seemed that Ms Bennett was not the only Canberran who takes the chance to build up a winter clothing collection.
Justine Wheeler's collection consists of of fingerless gloves, leg warmers and scarves to choose from - all things which she said were staples in her winter wardrobe.
For Sophie Florence of Page, it's her beanie collection she looks forward to wearing in the colder months, one of which has tiny foxes embroidered all over it to remind her of the time she spend living in Scotland.
And for six-year-old Gwen Perez this means wearing as many pink clothes as possible - although on those cold mornings her mum does tell her she has to leave her tutu at home because it's just not warm enough.
Dressing for warm is a sentiment which Johnny Lynch agreed with. Out on Lonsdale Street, the Sydneysider visiting the capital was rugged up in multiple layers, including a puffer jacket that he bought on a previous Canberra holiday. The only time he ever wears the coat is during his trips to the capital.
"I don't care about fashion, I just want to be warm," he said.
Mr Lynch wasn't the only one.
Brad Giles drives into Canberra from Goulburn every week, and while he doesn't like winter, "it has to be borne".
Mr Giles' said there's not a lot he thinks about when dressing for work, choosing whatever is "clean and on top of the pile". As an addition, he said he adds a snap cap his girlfriend bought him.
"I never thought I would [like it]," Mr Giles' said.
"It's of a generation but I suppose I just have to own it now.
"I think with all of us, when we get dressed if we own what we are wearing if we take it on board and rock it as much as we can then it's going to work.
"If we aren't sure about what we're dressed in, any of us, then it's never going to work."
