    ALYX GORMAN

    Fashion Editor at The Vine (thevine.com.au)

    Australian style has a lot in common with the local dialect: casual, confident and colourful. Experts at dressing for the transeasonal weather, layering chic and easy pieces is key in this climate, as is harnessing the power a statement necklace, armfuls of bangles and rings on every finger. Perhaps the most emblematic moment in Down Under dressing came not from a native, but a visitor with a knack for our mode. In 1965, British model Jean Shrimpton arrived at the Melbourne Cup Race’s wearing a headline-making thigh-skimming mini-dress sans gloves, hat and stockings – shocking! That’s the essence of Australian style: don’t wear much, look good doing it, and always turn heads.

    Pretty flip flops

    A pair of elegant flip flops – or thongs – are a must, because they keep a bit of decorum in place post beach or pedicure.
