White Suede





If there's one thing our Australian friends are good at, it's dressing for sunny weather! So we looked towards L'Oreal's Melbourne Fashion Festival this week and picked up some easy-breezy styling tips from five of our favorite designers from Down Under:

The Label: White Suede
The Look: Pastels and prints
Spring is almost synonymous with pretty pastels, but White Suede designer kicked up crisp mint skirts and slouchy coral tees with her digitally imaged Australian outback prints.

The Label: Rodeo
The Look: Total white out
Skimpy, skin-baring dresses are definitely not on the menu anymore, thanks to the demure efforts of Rodeo. We're crushing on cream boyfriend shirt-dresses and peek-a-boo lace frocks paired with chunky necklaces.

The Label: Mimco
The Look: Chains and sequins
Typically, we reserve our bling for the holiday season, but Mimco's bikini bottoms looked irresistible next to shiny envelope clutches and layers upon layers of chain necklaces.

The Label: Jolet
The Look: Postcard prints
The easiest way to wear this spring's most explosive trend? By itself! After all, when your dress is a walking picture, the frame should be limited to complementary shoes and mirrored sunnies.

The Label: Joveeba
The Look: Touches of textile
It's no wonder Joveeba designer Alison Cotton studied textile design in college— her newest collection is peppered with tribal print touches, from jeans to shirt collars.
