Fashion Month has ended, but that doesn’t mean the street style parade that is Life has to. Yes, although the last few weeks in the world of Capital-F Fashunz have seen their fair share of catty biffs between noted critics and designers both young and old, made all the more annoying by the unnecessary interjections of mouthy pop stars who have no place throwing their two cents into the industry’s swear jar, life goes on. As does the internet’s insatiable appetite for street style.
Once again we’ve curated a selection of style snaps from Westfield Sydney’s Little Black Book shopping events and we need your help to give us a hand in selecting the attendee with the best street style. All you need to do to help us pick our favourite look is suggest the best dressed attendee via public vote in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Our newly-appointed style icon will score a $200 gift voucher courtesy of Westfield Sydney, which is where I’m going to start hanging out because I could really do with $200 worth of anything that isn’t gelato. Here they are!
ARIELLE KISS, who has a truly fantastic name (like the love child of Gene Simmons and a mermaid), wears a seasonally apropos vintage floral dress, Arabella Fox jewellery and trusty Vans shoes outside Hart & Heim. Extra points for matching ink to dress and pout to pompadour.
Hey big spender, BEN HUGHES. Or should I saw Ben Hermés? Probably not because he’s at Typo. Ben wears a classic white tee from General Pants, Dr Denim chinos with a generous cuff, two tone brown leather Mere shoes and an also classic pair of Ray-Ban sunnies. He’s also wearing a Louis Vuitton cuff. Dude’s fancy.
Looking Supré festival ready, MICHELLE BANARES‘ oxblood Dr Martens are super kewt. A vintage tee and high-waisted Lee shorts complete the look. I hope she’s been home since Parklife.
I really like AUSTINA PHAN’s retro steez – the red lip, full moon spectacles, and head scarf are a good match with her Alice In The Eve dress, Dotty blazer and London Rebel Flats. The tartan Cambridge satchel rounds off the London Look via Saxony. Thanks, Kate Moss.
SALE is right because we’re a little bit sold on JASMINE YIN’s all black Topshop playsuit/sneaker/bag combo offset with the floral explosion of her ASOS jumper. Well playsuited, Jasmine Yin.
The devil’s in the details for PATRICK ISSA. A classic Ralph Lauren polo and Neuw pants with what looks like a contrast hem are offset by excellently coloured socks, sports luxe Nike Air Max sneakers and a vibrant green hat. It’s like Christmas come early, but without a tacky reindeer sweater.
Chanello! MELANIE DYLAN KIM brings the monochrome chic in an American Apparel top, Uniqlo pants and Chanel boots outside Zara. A strong cateye and bold pink lip complete a strong look.
Also outside Zara is MATTHEW SEO, whose Supreme pocket tee and Polo Ralph Lauren shorts say ‘street wear’ but whose Dapper bucket hat, Nike huarache shoes and Head Porter messenger bag say ‘intrepid urban explorer.’ Why so Seorious? Just kidding. You look good Matt.
Outside the Adidas Originals store, JUNGHYO JACOB HAN is gung-ho for labels in a Givenchy tee, Acne pants and tasselled Miharayasuhiro mandals. I dig.
If you haven’t already heard, burgundy is the new black or something. GEMMA MAUNDER got that memo and covers all her on-trend bases with a vintage burgundy top, black Sportsgirl skirt and Aldo shoes. The chain collar is a fun addition to a fun look. Fun.
Foregoing Pants in General (get it?), BRITTNEE BARRY opts instead for a mint Attic skirt, a red satchel and a Cheap Monday singlet. The Dangerfield varsity jacket and Zara flats scream ‘studious’ but the vibe is 100% ‘truant.’ Class dismissed.
