Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) kicked off it’s runway series yesterday at the official hub on Swanston Street in the city.
The David Jones Runway saw the retail giant pull Spring racing wear looks from some of Australia’s key designers under a temporary marquee.
And although the skies were a typical Melbourne grey, the pops of colour on the runway made Spring Fashion Week all the brighter.
So what does David Jones tell us we should be wearing this coming racing season? Apparently it’s all about flirty pastels, stand-out pencil skirts, boxy silhouettes and quirky takes on traditional race wear accessories.
I’ve pulled one of my favourite looks from the runway to create a flat lay that will inspire your Spring racing look. I feel like this modern Ellery dress with bell sleeves paired with a simple Gregory Ladner headband encompasses elegance and femininity and will set you apart from the traditional brights that are synonymous with the Melbourne races. The black socks paired with a cute pair of patent leather stillettos (these ones are Gucci), is the perfect quirky twist to add to that modernity; add some plain white Miu Miu sunglasses and you’ve got yourself a killer look.
Check out the rest of the looks from the DJ’s runway in the slideshow below, and stay tuned to The Melbourne Look this week for all the runway coverage of MSFW x
