Get Cathy’s look:
MELBOURNE STREET STYLE AND FASHION
Ahhh summer, it’s that time of year when the weather gets warmer, the nights become longer of course the wave of summer music festivals start to take over our weekends.
And with festival season comes festival fashion, we’re talking denim cut-offs, crop tops, sneakers and the obligatory any-weather-ready flannie.
This weekend we hit up Stereosonic and while the weather didn’t quite deliver, the line-up definitely did with favourites including Calvin Harris, Alison Wonderland and Disclosure serving up some serious summer vibes.
Here our top picks of the day x
BELOW: It’s not every day a camo bucket hat gets our attention, but we couldn’t go past this super cute on-trend street wear look. The tucked in basketball singlet and New Balance sneakers are our new favourite festival essentials.
ABOVE: An all black look is always effortlessly chic and we love how Kristen has paired it with a tan fedora and bold red lip. Her over the shoulder bag and leather boots are also giving us feel-good Glastonbury vibes.
BELOW: Keeping things simple in high waisted denim, we love how Casey keeps things relaxed with this no-fuss flannie and crop top combination. We also love the zip detail on the shorts and staple leather festival boots.
ABOVE: We love how relaxed Laura feels in this look, effortlessly pairing the sports luxe trend with festival wear. The checkered red shirt also brings the perfect pop of colour and rocker chic edge.
BELOW: We love Monique’s laid back look in denim and plaid. A chambray dress is our must-have for any festival wardrobe this season and the relaxed plaid shirt tied around the waist gives the look extra shape and colour.
ABOVE: Ruby definitely stood out from the crowd with this amazing floral jumpsuit that fits her like a glove! Paired with gold hoop earrings and on-point french braids, we love the hard edge style mixed with a softer feminine feel.
BELOW: Black never has to be boring, and we love how Tilly has kept things easy in a simple t-shirt dress and black Vans, but mixed it up with knee-high socks and a backpack. The aviator sunglasses and high bun work perfectly to complete the look.
ABOVE: Always one to look bangin’ no matter what the occasion, Steph keep things simply in denim cut-offs and black crop tee. We love the faded blue farmer shirt and washed out grey cap paired with simple black and gold jewellery.
It feels like only yesterday we were arduously planning outfits and perfecting our top-knots for the 2014 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, but already exciting plans are on their way for VAMFF 2015.
At the Festival’s campaign launch on Thursday night we were lucky enough to catch a first glimpse of what’s in store for Australia’s largest consumer focused fashion event. Running from March 14 to 22 2015, VAMFF will definitely be providing the goods when it comes to inspiring fashion events, runways and activities.
With over 100 well-loved and emerging designers on show, you can be sure to see some of your favourite brands up close and even purchase those must-have items after the runway at the Central Pier pop-up retail zone or from their interactive Shop the Runway initiative.
We’re all guilty of being glued to our phones 24/7 (who doesn’t check instagram 50 times a day?), and VAMFF is encouraging fashion goers to celebrate technology and it’s ability to connect the fashion community and be a source of inspiration.
Some of our favourite labels including Romance Was Born, STRATEAS.CARLUCCI and Josh Goot were all in attendance and will be showcased in exclusive runways shows through the festival. Alongside the big names, VAMFF is one of our favourite platforms to discover new and emerging talent and some undiscovered gems at the independent runways.
But what would fashion be without beauty? Announcing Priceline Pharmacy as the Festivals hair and beauty partner for 2015, VAMFF is sure to blow you away with some amazing looks on the runway, like the ones pictured here of models pre last weeks launch. x

Here at Street Smith it’s not often we focus our attention to the men (in fashion, that is!), but with the upcoming party season already filling our calendar we thought it was the perfect time to preview some luxe tux looks.
There’s nothing we love we more than a man in a suit, and one of our favourite menswear labels, Calibre, sure know how to deliver when it comes to one of the biggest trends this silly season; slim fitting suits. Like the classic LBD, we think every guy should have at least one slim black suit in their wardrobe, for whenever the occasion might call.
Sharp, dapper and sure to turn heads, Calibre are known for their innovative design, quality fabrics and knack for exquisite expert tailoring, ensuring even non suit wearers will want to be dressed to the nines in a Calibre suit.
Pictured below is Colin from The Trend Spotter looking sharp as ever wearing one of our picks from their new range, because you can never go wrong with a tux. x
