The busy, week-long proceedings of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia are done and dusted for this year, which means fashionistas everywhere are now figuring out the top trends that will be taken from runway to wardrobes. From vibrant colours and patterns to structured silhouettes, we’ve complied MBFWA’s top trends and looks you should keep your eyes out for in the coming months.
If there is one recurring trend we saw this year, it’s got to be check prints. The check print was seen on structured blazers and suits that featured on Camilla and Marc and Bianca Spencer’s shows. With its versatility, we love how this classic pattern has been transformed into a fashion week favourite. To shop this look for less, we recommend our Romaro Blazer that’ll sure to be a big hit this season (coming soon)!
Frills & Ruffles
Looking like a wedding cake never seemed more fashionable! Ruffle details were seen everywhere from Alice McCall, C/MEO Collective and Bec & Bridge runways that showcased many flouncy layers and peplum styles. So whether you want to keep it girly with an ultra-pleated dress or more simple by wearing a skirt with subtle ruffle detailing, this trend is super wearable. Our Joan Mini is an easy and casual take on this trend that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.
Remember that puffy sleeved dress your mum would make you wear to birthday parties when you were young? Yep, they’re making a comeback. And we love it. Puffy sleeves were featured on Alice McCall and Karla Špetić shows that were both feminine and chic. Our Sparks fly dress is a more mature take on the puff trend, and with its simplicity and sophistication, it's perfect for any cocktail event or dressy night!
A key colour and style that kept popping up on the runways was khaki and utilitarian fashion. Although it may seem out of place in a resort collection, we’re all about practicality with the unpredictable Australian weather, right? Think lapels, outerwear and structured silhouettes. Our Maxina coat exudes a utilitarian feel, and even better it’s khaki!
To get your hands on these hottest trends this season and more, make sure you check out our collection and keep your eyes peeled for daily new arrivals!
