You know what’s great about having two hemispheres with opposite seasons? There’s the potential to escape your current weather reality, yes. There is also the ability to witness summer style unfolding ahead of our own season—a sneak preview, if you will.
While we’re shivering in the north, our blogging sisters in the southern hemisphere are reveling in warmer weather, in outfits that are a little boho, a little sophisticated, and totally cool. Having lived in Australia for a time, one thing I know for sure is that summer style is what Aussies do best.
White nails—in summer or winter. White pumps. White skirts.
Superbloggers Down Under know how to work white, even when they find themselves in Europe in the dead of winter. Considering the U.S. fashion scene is New York-based, and everything about New York is so black, the way these ladies fearlessly wield white is refreshing.
They’ve got me thinking it’s time to ditch the red talons and go to a chic white nail. And even a white pump. Now that’s influence—I abandoned the thought of ever donning a white shoe again about 10+ years ago
They’ve got the art of the streamlined bag down to a science, and the clutches they carry are art. In summer, especially, who needs a big ol’ bag weighing down an airy look?
We could all learn a thing or two from these clutch queens; there is nothing less chic than looking like a laden pack mule.
SHORT HEMLINES AND BOOTIES
Whether they’re wearing cutoffs, a skirt, or a dress, these Aussies illustrate the brilliant contradiction that is bare legs and booties—no matter where in the world they find themselves. Of course, they’ve been schooled by the best: Christine Centenera of Vogue Australia.
The tan is optional, but if you’re so inclined (or self-conscious about your legs), add some self-tanner to your arsenal.
