Tran seasonal dressing is something we are constantly talking about in Melbourne. As we are often experiencing four seasons in one day, it is no surprise we love a look that can be worn all day long, regardless of what the weather decides to do! During the Autumn-Winter months, I tend to only make minor changes to my personal style to adhere to the cooler weather. Instead of sandals, I’ll opt for black boots or sneakers and instead of sleeveless dresses on their own, I’ll tie in a shirt/tee underneath and then a blazer or jacket over the top – when the weather permits.
As Spencer Outlet Centre’s Style Ambassador, I was given the opportunity to create a few A/W inspired looks and discuss some of the trends to watch over the coming months.
The first look I created is perfect for a Melbourne Autumn day. The almost all monochrome everything is a quintessential element to dressing in Melbourne and I have incorporated one of the key pattern trends for the cooler months – plaid. Plaid was a huge trend during last A/W and this year will be no different.
White shirt $29.99 Glassons, Denim jacket $49.99 and Belt $5.00 Glassons, Plaid Trousers $29.95 Cotton On, Bag from a selection at TK Maxx.
The second look I created is perfect for a cooler day in Melbourne. The darker tones contrast well with this absolutely amazing Proenza Schouler bag I found at TK Maxx. I am totally obsessed with it and had to literally create an entire look around it, I loved it so much. I love a pop of colour at any time of the year, but A/W is the perfect time to incorporate some extra colour, especially when the weather is gloomy!

The third look I created is a super casual everyday look. In this look I wanted to highlight just how amazing the pieces are that are available at Spencer Outlet Centre. This top is really cool, such a great find and the colour is super trendy this year – with anything cream/beige/tonal totally taking over everyone’s wardrobe right now.
Top $29.99 Glassons, Jeans $49.99 Cotton On, Bag from a selection at TK Maxx.
The last look I created is the kind of look that can easily be adapted depending on the weather on the day. You could add in tights and a turtleneck on a cooler day or leave it as on a warmer day. Again this look is highlighting the trendy colours of the year – being tonal looks and dressing and the buttons on the dress add an interesting, trendy element to the look. I absolutely love this bag, paired with this look – which is available from TK Maxx. Tortoiseshell is a huge trend at the moment and will continue to be everywhere over A/W and in the circular handle bag detail – this trend is displayed perfectly.
Dress $19.99 and Blazer $59.99 Glassons, Bag from a selection at TK Maxx.
