I put it to you that majority of Australian’s would use the weather to legitimize their excuse for being a season or so behind Europe. But I feel as though with the power of the internet this defence is well and truly dead.
Viewing the collections from the New York, London and Paris fashion weeks, I am inspired to start wearing the forecasted trends sooner rather than later, especially the real 70’s vibe I have caught onto. I am also in total awe of Topshops present collections dark nouveau, the outsiders, rough diamond and into the wild.
Although I love the current pastel palettes, floral fabrics, wooden platforms and clogs in store for spring I don’t believe that we should limited ourselves to these few trends. There is plenty in stores when we take a conscious effort to look for items, which can help us adapt winter trends in Europe with our own summer twist.
Large satchels, quirky tights, lace pants, fedora hats, countryside attire, rucksacks, plaids, , sheer fabrics, sparkles, juxtaposing distinct prints, awesome boots, and clever layering are all part of topshops current range and are elements could be easily slotted into Australian fashion right now.
This next look of my own, plays with a few of the trends in topshops look book. For instance there is a lot of black, sheer fabric,the staple maxi, large wedged boots and a contrast of black and mustard. The look is very black but to be honest since when does black ever go out of fashion ?
Fashion at it's best is fresh so there is no better time than the present to catch up to the northern hemisphere .
