As the sun rises to a new decade, with it brings a new sensibility to dressing; an effortless ease and lightness, unrestricted and delicate for the Australian Summer…
“We leave behind fast fashion brands and fleeting trends with the decade, welcoming a more refined, stripped back and authentic approach to dressing, investing more in local and emerging designers.”
Gone are the days of tacky sequins, glaring metallics, itchy nylons and over-the-top styling that New Years Eve dressing has become synonymous for. We leave behind the fast fashion brands and fleeting trends with the decade, welcoming a more refined, stripped back, authentic and sustainable approach to dressing, investing more in local and emerging designers.
Now, it’s about a sense of simplicity and naturalness, embracing organic fabrics, effortless silhouettes and a delicate, complimentary palette. Opt for tonal linens, falling silks and billowing cottons designed into simplistic, yet modern styles that celebrate the female form with low, skimming backs, cropped hems and cut-outs. If adornment is a must, layer up unexpected stones and forms pulled from Mother Nature herself – think baroque pearls, black or white diamonds and other earthly delights. Let your sun-kissed beauty shine through with a touch of all over body moisturizer, a lick of taupe shadow on the eye and a sheer lip balm to finish.
