Ignore what is happening on the catwalk because street style trends are more likely to rule the sartorial plan than what the designers choose to put on the runway that season.
A few months ago, everyone was stunned with the Australian Fashion Week, or to be more exact, the street style trends we have noticed come out from the Aussie fashion center, Sydney. From daring denim to perfect prints, here are the top trends you must have on your radar from down under.
- Unique Bags
Handbags stole the spotlight when it comes to accessories, with many fashion experts and models opting for chic cross-body bags in vibrant colors that clashed with their outfits. Others are worn hand-held designs barely spacious enough to bring the essentials, but massive statement-makers, nonetheless.
If an arm candy update is what your closet wants, invest in designer brands or save with a sweet find.
- Chunky Sneakers
Another efficient move for the fashion pack, sporty sneakers were designed to feel more dressed up than fitness-first through the help of winter coats, loose tailoring, and blazers.
- Statement Boots
The footwear did not go ignored this year, with many street stylers and fashionistas stepping out in boots, making dressing for wet, cold weather way more exhilarating.
From colored ankle boots to knee-high riding boots, chunky cleated soles, and those with statement heels, there were many wishlist-worthy shoes to be seen at Australian Fashion Week.
If you are searching for a new addition to your winter closet, Billini, Tony Bianco, Alias Mae, and so much more have dropped new arrivals which are too great to sleep on.
- Power Suits
Oversized tailoring was massive a Fashion Week, with many fashion elites and influencers taking to the streets wearing roughly customized suit sets in each rainbow color.
The casual tailoring trend sustained with others skipping the coordinating pants and pairing their boyfriend blazers with skirts, bike shorts, and oversized shirts.
After a few years of tedious pandemic-induced dressing, it looks like the style set got the more is more memorandum. Bold prints and ditzy patterns made a splash at the Australian Fashion Week. The statement dress will be the simplest way to elevate your wardrobe this summer.
- High-Fashion Sunglasses
No pair of sunglasses will offer you that model-off-duty vibes more than wearing high-fashion sunglasses. Nothing screams luxury fashion more than a pair of Immortal round-shaped sunglasses.
- Sophisticated Denim
Denim has had a rebranding during the Australian Fashion Week. This time, the looks were a far cry from ripped knees and distressed jeans.
Regardless of the slouchy silhouettes and relaxed fits that have ruled the style agenda, the denim we noticed at AFW was all dressed up. For instance, Kate Waterhouse wore a chic denim blazer over a striped dress, while double denim was paired up with heels elsewhere.
- Lady-Like Dresses
These dresses ruled the streets of Sydney during the AWF, the puff sleeves making for a sophisticated outfit. So, find a dress with a modern cut-out at the side part or with a hint of cleavage. It is only adequate to dim the prim and err on the side of fashion pro instead.
