There are so many pros to wearing vintage clothes – original one-off pieces, classic and timeless designs, quality fabrics, designer finds for less, and that personal edge that stands out every time. On the other hand, who can resist all of the latest arrivals that look so pretty in the shop window?
Luckily, there are a number of ways you can mix vintage and modern pieces together, even if it’s just a touch of vintage charm through hair or makeup. What’s more, you can even save money by combining the old with the new.

Winter has officially arrived, bringing booties, oversize jumpers and coats to the forefront. The cooler seasons bring more flexibility to the wardrobe as you can layer, mix and match and get away with a casual androgynous look, personalised to your own tastes.

There are so many looks you can go for when it comes to tomboy chic, and the best part about sporting this look in winter is the versatility that comes with it.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is a celebration and mix of both fashion and culture. Sydney transforms into Australia’s style capital – and bloggers, influencers, photographers, celebrities and retailers flock to watch as our country’s top fashion designers and labels (as well as the up-and-coming talent) send their new collections down the runway. Showcasing their innovative designs, trends for the next season are born.
Often though, we find ourselves just as mesmerised and inspired by the eclectic and creative looks pulled together by those attending the shows, and because nothing is off limits in this one week of the year, we tend to see some looks which send off the love heart eyes, and others we are very confused by. This year, the street-style looks sported by guests were celebrated just as much (if not more) than what was on the runway!
