If you are a fashion-conscious Australian who likes a heads-up about up-and-coming fashion trends, you have come to the right place, as we offer an exclusive insight into Australian fashion and what you will see on the summer catwalks.
Soft, pastel colours
Pale pinks and blues are back with a vengeance and with the online boutique, you can view designer dresses at affordable prices. The alternative is to buy the fabric and commission a local dressmaker to create stunning outfits, which is probably more affordable than buying retail.
If you don’t already have some human hair extensions in your wardrobe, now is the time to order a few; clip-ons with a range of colour highlights can give you many options. The best products are made from 100% human hair and they are very easy to attach, giving you a long-hair look whenever you feel like it.
If you would prefer a lighter complexion, you can order skin whitening cream in Australia from a leading skincare specialist that offers a diverse selection of skincare products. Navy blue, black and lighter shades of brown/beige, are all popular this year, with white as the other main colour. The tanned look is no longer fashionable, probably due to the fact that the sun contains harmful UV rays.
Expect to see a lot of animal prints in the trendy clubs; workout garments such as leggings and yoga tops will be the order of the day. Google can help you locate online clothing retailers where you’ll find leopard leggings and buying online means the lowest prices. Click here to learn about shapewear.
The trend for chunky silver jewellery is still with us and it doesn’t look like ending anytime soon. Online sterling silver jewellery stores are the best options, with quality hand-made chunky bracelets and necklaces, which are generally 25% cheaper than brick-and-mortar stores. Most women have at least 2-3 chunky jewellery pieces in their jewellery box and they regard these as important accessories for creating unique looks.
A single-shoulder designer dress would be ideal for formal social events and you can expect to see sequins and satin finishes. Most women own at least one off-the-shoulder number in their wardrobe, which is ideal for parties and other formal occasions.
Denim has been at the top of the fashion scene since we can first remember, while rips and tears are back with a bang. Bleached and stone-washed denim is as popular today as it was back in the 1970s; Google can help you find an online supplier of jeans and jackets made from 100% cotton denim that Levi Strauss is famous for.
A smart blazer that is tucked at the waist definitely adds some glamour to any outfit, with green, blue and black as the primary colours. Check out Vogue Magazine for the latest in fashion trends, while the Australian Fashion Council also has a website.
