The Key Trends From Melbourne Fashion Week

The Key Trends From Melbourne Fashion Week

It's a wrap for another year, and what a year it was, with what we thought was the best Melbourne Fashion Week we have ever seen.  With the fashion available and the coming sunshine, we are in for one fabulous summer.

Would you like to know what to add to your spring wardrobe this year? 

We have picked out the key trends from some of your favorite Australian designers for you to enjoy.   Get ready to take a trip into the world of Melbourne Fashion.

Sleeves are in vogue for Spring.  From the bell, voluminous, trumpet, flared, sunray and cuffs at the wrists, we saw them all on the catwalks, and they are here to stay.

Last year every top was off the shoulder.  This look is still in fashion for this ss17, but think sleeves.  A fun and fabulous trend.

 

Vintage dress styles with frills to the max at all lengths, with floral prints, were embraced at the festival.  A fantastic style if you love this look for the races, beach, holidays, or throw on a heel for workwear.  Always a statement piece, so keep accessories to a minimum.  Wear with nude sandals and shoes.

Martin Grant SS17 Collection “Martin Grant focuses on his silhouettes as if they’re a fine art. He is constantly finessing the lengthening effect of his trousers and jumpsuits, and creates cocktail dresses that look good from up close and afar.” – Vogue.com Image Credit: Lucas Dawson Photography

We reported for AW17 that 90's styles are still in, well much to our delight, the trend has continued.  Chanel your inner Madonna with high-neck black lace, strong shoulders, or the girls from SATC with bold colored leather and as reported above, or even your best 90's Kylie Minogue with hourglass floral and frilly dresses, nipped in at the waist.

Bring out your inner goddess with full-length femme.   Long line coats and maxi dresses with gorgeous embroidered sheer fabrics.  Layer up and cinch at the waist for that effortless feminine look.

 

 

 

It is time to put on your comfy clothes!  If this is your style, comfy and slouchy-cool threads are huge.

We know how much us Melbournians love black, but the colors were the knockout of the shows.  Color blocking in red, blue, yellow and pastel pink was the look, especially red teamed with pastel pink.  A real show stopper.  These were the dominant hues in the floral prints, so no excuse just to wear black this season.

Metallics and Mule shoes.  If you love comfort, nothing beats the Mules.  It is time girls to ditch the Haviannas and start rocking mules.  They come in all colors, even metallics, which are here to stay, especially in silver and rose-gold, the in vogue color of Italy.  

 

 

I will be showcasing many of these styles on the Cazinc Instagram page and keep blogging with us as there is more to come on our style page for #SS17.

Fashion is fun, dressing up is fun, looking fabulous is fun, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune.  The secret is knowledge.
