Fashion Shows Double

If you get into fashion week then you are going to love the fact that Mercedes Australian Fashion Week has bumped up its fashion schedule by announcing a second event to showcase autumn/winter collections in Melbourne. The weeklong soiree runs from November 10th to 15th and will preview the collections from over 40 designers from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region.

Cargo Pants

Remember scouring through Army Department stores for a pair of these 90?s must haves? Well ? they are back? They are now more new millennium than ever. Don?t wear them with lasts year trainers-bad bad fashion mistake. Instead, slip into a pair of strappy sandals and throw on a pretty top. One of our favourite tops is Zambelli Donna?s cotton floral shirt, ($120). Looks slick with khaki cargos. Go girl and get military fast.

Boho Chic

Anything bohemian or flamboyant is definitely the look – and the guys love that ultra feminine style. Think caftan cool. It?s all about dressing without thinking. Exotic, oriental-inspired tops or skirts with basic pieces – jeans or denim jacket ? think Jackie O on summer holiday with JFK.
