What’s trending in fashion this week on Aussie streets? What are the style choices we’re seeing everyone make? Here are the latest trends that we’ve spotted in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth this week.
According to our eyes on the street, while we’re still seeing ripped jeans and sneakers, things have taken a turn for the feminine this week. From florals to ruffles to wearing hair out in soft messy curls, it’s pretty, it’s playful but it’s full of statement attitude.
Bright, bold florals were a catwalk fave and the ones we saw out this week certainly weren’t any more understated. Pretty but powerful and with a real holiday vibe, this isn’t a look for shrinking violets.
Today’s bags are going square but it’s a look that’s far from boring. Combining colourful leathers with chunky chain straps, this fun, edgy accessory seems to be the street fashionistas favourite shoulder friend.
Forget smooth, our apparel ATM is all about head-to-toe texture – the more you can squeeze into one outfit the better. Rough sheers; crochet knits; crinkled silks; crushed velvets; you name it, we snapped it.
Giving any outfit a feminine, romantic flavour, ruffles are one hot street trend at the mo. From pretty arm theatre on OTS tops and blouses to flattering nips and ruches around the waist, it’s all about the fabric curves.
ALL TIED UP
From our sleeves to our skirts to our shoes, if it’s not tied up, it’s not on trend. Easy, playful, and just that little bit naughty, casual knots with hanging straps are beating zips, hooks and buttons hands down.
The 90s choker certainly seems to have made a comeback. Currently, though, it’s demonstrating fresh versatility out on the street as we wear it soft, feminine and scarf-like, as a separate or as part of a top.
It seems the masculine love affair with the ankle is still going strong. By exposing the skin between cuffed jeans or chinos and a pair of brogues or bright white sneakers, sockless is keeping things summery and fresh.
It’s a look that’s popping up on pavements everywhere from New York to London to Paris. What is it? The statement sleeve. Oversized, open, flared, balloon, the styles range from romantic to retro to modern.
From Gucci to YSL, designer leather handbags with gold chains are being worn on shoulders around the world once again. Classic, chic but with a rebel edge they’re driving the current bag trend down under, even in silver.
Who says flamboyance is for the catwalks? Our international friends are certainly not afraid to combine hot trends to create impact. This time it’s stripes with ruffles with off-the-shoulder with buttons.
That’s it for this week Revolutionaries. We’ll be back with more of what’s trending in Aussie streets next week!
