Breaking the stereotypical trends of spring has been seen a lot in and around the city recently, with darker hues and simplicity standing out.
The laid back, normcore (unisex) vibe is the new statement this spring and summer. Watch this space to see more of the latest trends seen on Melbourne’s streets.
A common misconception about spring fashion is that bright colours are key, but not this season. These Topshop peg trousers are the perfect shade and style for spring, and have the ability to be worn all year round (and are perfect for the office!). To keep the look casual, add a slouchy Asos shirt and a pair of black ballet flats.
Platforms have been a massive trend this winter and sandal versions (such as these from Boohoo) will continue to dominate in spring and throughout summer. Girls have been wearing crop tops for years now and it’s definitely not going to change anytime soon, but adding a cute Dollskill slogan crop to your shin-grazing Free People skirt provides a little sass to your outfit.
Normcore as a trend is simple and easy for men to follow – it’s all about simplicity. A minimal-print Huf hat is vital in a man’s wardrobe because it can be worn with any outfit for any occasion. River Island longline t-shirts in neutral colours will be seen everywhere this summer, and is perfectly styled with Topman slim jeans and Toms lace-ups.

The Tomboy style is still very much around and on-trend in Melbourne. Timberlands and a Love Clothing flannel are key pieces to achieve this look. A New York hat is optional, depending on how much you want to emulate the style. A short sleeved faux-fur coat adds the perfect amount of texture to a denim shorts and black cami combo, and a wedged bootie makes the outfit look complete with a touch of class. – Simone Poole
