Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life- Bill Cunningham
Ever since the evolution of fashion industry, the runway dressers have broken through the daily silhouettes and streetwear and have brought in a more reasonable fashion trend in entire Australia. The full-length maxi dresses have replaced the generous heavy gowns in day to day life, while ripped jeans and denim shorts have smoothly replaced the skinny tight denim in the pages of Vogue. But what is more important to know is about the popular trends that are prevailing in Australia.
Australian fashion industry is a bit different than those of American and British. Hence, the trends prevailing in Australia are way different from others. Tunic tops, hem pants, ben bottom jeans, sleeveless maxi dresses are just a few of the trends to name. Let’s learn about some of the fashion trends in Australia in details:
Secret behind the hi-lo style
Lately, Australia has seen a lot of hi-lo dresses, tops and other silhouettes, both in streetwear and runway wear to go with the Australian fashion trend. The hi-lo pattern of hemline came from the American runways and soon got spread to rest of the world. And when it comes to latest trends in fashion, Australia is never below the line. The runway designers of Australia have modified the hi-lo hemline and incorporated them in designs which are now loved by millions. One of the trendiest styles is the hi-lo hemline top that goes well with both formal and casual attire.
The Brunch date floral style
Floral patterns came into the fashion industry about a few decades ago. To be specific floral prints were very much on trend during the 70’s and 80’s when brunch dates and lunch parties at posh places became very popular. People soon were seen updating their daily cupboard with floral dresses and other silhouettes over cocktail dresses and one-piece garments. The simple reason is, cocktail dresses are too loud for the brunch dates, and hence floral prints were loved by all. Even today, Australian streets are filled with floral print dresses that are not just beautiful but also very elegant to wear. One of the trendiest floral silhouettes in Australia right now is the above-knee length flared floral dress paired with a beautiful pair of stilettos.
The comfy hem pants
Taken from the Egyptian era, hem pants, also known as harem pants lately came in the Australian fashion industry, specifically in the last few years. Hem pants were always famous among the Asian areas like India and Singapore and the middle-east areas of Dubai. Later, Australian designers adapted the hem pants style and incorporated them into many of the silhouettes that are today widely loved by Australian women. These pants are comfortable, low-maintenance, light on the body and feel nothing less than a drape of single cloth. Unlike denim pants and leggings, harem pants are very comfortable during the summer days and road trips. One of the trendiest styles in Australia right now is pairing hem pants with bralettes or cropped tank tops and a pair of easy-going flip-flops.
The frills of ruffle hemline
It all started with the flutter sleeve. Then evolved to the peplum ones and later further evolved into ruffled style during the late 80’s. Today, the final product of the flutter sleeves are here, often known as frilled ruffles or mullets. Ruffle sleeveless, ruffle hemlines and mullet fabric type became very famous all over the world and Australia was no exception. The runway designers brought the frilled ruffle sleeveless back to the Australian fashion industry which was once lost during the 90’s. Chic, elegant and graceful, these frilled ruffle hemlines and sleeveless has a typical feminine touch in its silhouettes, which is why ruffle tops are so on every page of Vogue magazine now. Spring 2017 in Australia was all about ruffle sleeves and mullet tops. And Spring 2018 will not be any different, eyeing that frilled ruffles are still loved by a majority of Australian women. One of the trendiest fashion in Australia right now is the ruffle sleeved top paired with ankle-high black boots and skinny fit jeggings.
