Spotted on campus: A guide to fashion in Bundoora
While spring has arrived, Melbourne is still experiencing some chilly days that call for cosy knits and lots of layers.
We dropped by the local universities in Bundoora to find inspiration for trans-seasonal dressing and see what items of clothing can help us get through those crisp mornings, wet and windy days and cool evenings.
Here are some fashion trends to follow:
1. Updated monochrome
Melbourne’s favourite colour scheme is back (or should we say, black). If you aren’t already on the fashion bandwagon, black, white and all fifty shades of grey are about to take over your wardrobe. It’s the easiest trend to pull off no matter what your style, shape or occasion. Opt for classic cuts and sleek lines if a polished look is what you’re after, or alternatively rip out the classic white shirt with woollens, knits, ripped denim and the like for a softer look that says, ‘I woke up like this’.
Whether layered over luxe super-soft tees or tied around the waist, jumpers are a must for any transitional season. Keep things classic with a heavy-knit cashmere or merino wool jumper or go for a sportier look with a thick athletic pullover. Unisex and oh so versatile, the jumper is layering made easy. Extend the shelf-life of your summer wardrobe by pairing cable or fisherman-style pull overs with denim jeans or leather skirts for a textured look.
3. Light-wash denim
Don’t forget to add a pop of colour and texture to a monochromatic outfit with a light wash denim piece. This 90’s classic is making a comeback the way only Jennifer Aniston could. It’s time to push boundaries and reach for something other than your skinny leg jeans, double down with a classic Levi’s button up or take this trend to the next level with a Sherpa jacket – after all there’s nothing like a bit of shearling lining and good ol’ fashion Australian wool to keep you warm.
Continuing on the monochrome trend, this season’s go-to is a runner of clean and minimalist proportions. Comfort meets functionality in this
season’s must-have footwear. No longer reserved for actual exercise or athletics, runners have been reclaimed and reappropriated for everyday fashion. Pairing perfectly with all your basics and juxtaposing all your dress-wear, shoes of this variety are the solution to withstanding puddles, late nights and all occasions in absolute comfort.
