The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival is back for another year and with it comes some seriously stylish guests.

The much-loved consumer festival hosts a selection of Australia’s best designers, showcasing their current collections.

Over the course of the week, bloggers and fashion lovers alike flock to the streets, wearing their most enviable outfits. For the year ahead, here are 7 key trends to work into your wardrobe.

1. Corseted waists

Throughout fashion month, women around the globe have been cinching their waists with a corset. We love this look paired with light wash denim for a dressed down feel. Keep it modern by layering over a casual tee or tailored shirt.

2. Gucci everything

There’s no denying that Gucci is having a moment. Whether adorned on a belt, t-shirt or quilted handbag, it seems every fashionista at VAMFF has been working Gucci’s signature double G’s.

3. Dressed up tees

Comfort is key with this trend. Pair a relaxed fit tee with a structural skirt or tailored pant for a look that will take you from the office to drinks with ease.

4. Statement bags

This year at VAMFF, statement designer bags have been on full display. If you’re looking to invest in a luxury bag this season, go for something that will really make a statement.

5. Customised denim

Oversized denim jackets are a staple piece for any street style star, but this season it’s all about customisation. Think bold text, cheeky quotes and patches to show off your personality. Simply throw over your shoulders for a ‘model off duty’ look.

6. Prints, prints, prints

VAMFF’s style set aren’t shying away from prints this year. Whether it’s vibrant florals or playful leopard, don’t be afraid to mix and match your prints. For a dressed down look, pair with casual denim or sneakers.

7. White out

On the other end of the spectrum, all white looks are a fresh way to approach trans-seasonal dressing. This minimalist trend works best with glowing skin, pulled back hair and classic tailoring.
