The Trend Report From Down Under: Australia Fashion Week

Don't be afraid of this seemingly risque fashion move. When paired with a high-waisted skirt or pant, a bra trop can be subtly sexy without looking over the top. For a sophisticated going out look, wear yours under a blazer, as seen here.

Think of this sporty style as like a racerback in the front. A scuba neckline is the perfect cure-all if you're sick of your typical v-neck or scoop.

If these flirty dresses are any indication, the '90s are definitely having a moment. Clueless nostalgia aside, short and sweet styles are perfect for hot spring summer days.

Well, it's official - those boho-chic, lace-up flat sandals are back. This season, they're better (and higher) than ever. A pair of knee-high gladiators paired with a flowy sundress is the perfect outfit for a day spent in the summer sunshine.

Stripes, polka dots, ikat - no matter the print, Aussie designers were all about the monochromatic pattern for this spring's styles. Whether you're pairing a striped blazer with striped pants or a chevron top with a chevron skirt, piling on the prints has never looked chicer.

Fringe, tassels, and pom-poms - oh my! Bohemian-inspired ethnic prints on flowy dresses and scarves are perfect for spring and summer. You may not have traveled to Malaysia or Tanzania, but you'll certainly look like you did!

While the recent fashion weeks in New York and Paris yielded the trends we'll be seeing in stores this fall and winter, down under in Australia, Aussie designers just finished up showing their spring and summer collections.

The summer styles shown at Australia Fashion Week couldn't have come with more perfect time - just as we're gearing up for warm weather, music festival season. While we saw lots of leather jackets and boxy coats during the fall/winter fashion weeks, Australia was all about short hemlines, bright colors, and pops of print. Australian designers have a penchant for quirk, and we saw plenty of ethnic prints and vintage-inspired styles.
