As the seemingly endless stream of Coachella style inspo gradually winds down, we’re ready to get back to reality. After all, desert summer fashion is a miserable muse to those trying to adapt to the cooler weather. Have a peep at the rising trends we’ve noticed both locally and across the pond.
The Printed Suit
While last week’s all-over print looks spotted at Coachella are the festival take on this trend. The head-turning printed suit remains a killer street style statement on the concrete, too.
Why let a bit of bad weather rain on your parade? Transparent plastic boots, trenches, trousers and more are fast becoming the hottest cold-weather pieces around. Creative styling options are endless with transparency thrown in the mix.
Local Radar – The Denim Jacket
A classic for good reason – even when it’s reworked to be anything but traditional. As the temperature drops here in Australia, denim jackets of all descriptions are catching our eye on the street. Lined with borg or layered with a cosy hoodie, the denim jacket is keeping locals snug this season.
Our insider style scoop this week comes from a Melbourne-based stylist and artist whose offbeat style, showcased on his Insta feed, is a pleasure to peruse.

Can you describe your style in three words? DIY, expressive, personal
Trend you can’t stop spotting? The past decade’s making a huge comeback as a combined style. 70’s-2000’s all in one.
Any trend predictions for the coming season? Colour blocking and use of intense textures, I think will get bigger and more abstract. Silhouettes will become the focal point.
Style tip for colder weather? My style tip for all cold weather is to op shop all of your outerwear. Customise it and make it personal. It’s usually the biggest part of your outfit so why not make it the boldest?
Street Stylers We Love
In the age of the Hadids, the off-duty model style that takes over the internet can sometimes feel a little artificial. Enter French-American model, Camille Rowe. Whether rocking her signature jeans and a tee look or sporting head to toe animal print, Camille has personality in spades and it always shows. For ultra-relaxed looks by day and Bowie-inspired getups by night, she’s one to follow.
Melbourne-based fashion lover Austin Levine’s feed is equal parts playful and parred back. Sophisticated but never too serious, Austin’s creative styling just keeps getting better.
