Summer Style Forecast

0

With less than a week to go until it’s officially Summer, we’re forecasting some of the trends that you’ll be adopting for warm weather days. Done right, hair bows and tie-up tops are going to be providing summer versatility and styling options.

Hair Bows

Throughout fashion weeks and red-carpet seasons, it can be a little heartbreaking to fall in love with hair trends that are impossible to recreate without a squad of professionals. Luckily, the trending style of the season is super simple. Think you parted ways with hair bows after childhood? Think again. Bows of all kinds are the perfect finishing touch to your tresses, whether they’re in the form of a knotted scarf or even your favourite designer gift ribbon!

Tie-Front Tops

It’s time to tie the knot. With the holiday season comes a busier event schedule and back to back events, so versatility is of the utmost importance when investing in wardrobe pieces. Tie-front tops can allow for a range of styling choices, potentially taking you from casual coffee with friends to a more relaxed, lower cut date night outfit. Don’t even get us started on the possibilities for layering all year round…

Local Radar

Australian street style

A classic for a reason, the humble t-shirt is becoming the street style staple for locals here in Aus. In plain colours or complete with statement slogans, you can’t go wrong with a trusty tee.

Front Row Favourites

Sheer Layering

Runway styling is often the best forecaster for our future fashion choices. Styling on the runways of the Simone Rocha and Maryam Nassir Zadeh Spring ’19 collections was the friendly reminder we needed that hot weather does not mean the end of layering techniques. The sheerest of fabrics layered over linens or other sheer materials can make for a dreamy summer statement.

Street Stylers to Check Out

Sleek, classic style with a hint of European charm…and some envy-inducing travel snaps to boot. Tom Simpson is both the head of menswear at The Iconic and a street styler worth the follow.

While there’s certainly a long way to go before we see true diversity within the fashion industry, it’s reassuring to witness the skyrocketing success of some plus size models. Take Paloma Elesser.  Her confidence and wicked sense of style shine through in her Instagram feed.

New Kid on the Block

Rachel Louey

After wowing audiences with her graduate collection at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival earlier this year, RMIT Fashion Design grad Rachel Louey has continued to document her process and design journey online. With a sophisticated take on silhouette and function, this new kid on the block is bound for success.

-Enjoy the last week of spring, we’ll be back in the summer!-
