Get The Look: Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Trends
Melbourne Spring Fashion Week has taken over the city this week, with stylish runway shows celebrating the new spring 2014 season and showcasing the biggest trends for you to wear right now.
Incorporating everything from metallic silvers and golds to classic floral and paintbrush prints, vibrant interplays of colour is teamed with monochromatic classic, showcasing versatile looks no matter what your style is.
All white is a huge trend for the season, integrating textured laces, PU and mesh panelling for a sporty and modern touch. Drawstring waists, asymmetrical necklines, boxy tees and midi lengths are common styles seen in classic whites, worn head-to-toe in the same shade, or mixed with statement prints or classical nudes.
We love teaming with a statement lip or printed shoes for added colour or with leather for an edgy and sporty vibe.
A typical spring favourite, statement prints seen in botanical floral, paintbrush styles or monochromatic marble took over the runway, in loose gathered shorts, structured dresses and feminine camis. Bold colours like cobalt blue, forest green and hot pink contrast with more feminine pastel colour options in hues of pink, blue and yellow.
Let your outfit speak for itself with a classic look-at-me dress in a must-have spring print, keep your accessories neutral and add soft waves with sandals for a carefree weekend style.
Back To Black
A classic no matter what time of the year, it’s all about sticking to basics for the spring/summer 2014 season. Easy to transition from day to night, black makes you look timeless and classy in all the right ways. This year black has taken a much more modern approach with sporty mesh panelling, PU or textured embellishment, revamping the traditional style. Invest in a body-con black midi dress as your go-to for the party season ahead. Don’t be afraid to mix n’ match with colourful accessories or a hot pink lip.
A Pop Of Colour
Perfect for the girl who likes to keep things crisp and clean, a pop of colour is the perfect way to add some spring/summer style without going over board. Whether it’s a statement colour pop top teamed with neutral pants or a gorgeous colourful print on a white base, it’s all about including a little colour for a true spring vibe.
Metallic shined on the runway at the international spring 2014 shows, with designers like Saint Laurent and Givenchy embracing this shimmery style, so it’s no surprise that our favourite Australian brands and designers are adopting this trend too. The perfect way to add that little something extra to your everyday style, metallic women skirts look great with a classic black top and heels for a night our, or worn with a printed tee and sneakers for a sporty touch.
