It wouldn't be Australian Fashion Week without some blogger fashion dissection. And better yet, a styling post on how you can achieve their street style prowess at home. It might look complex from the outside but really, those savvy digi babes are following a few simple styling steps again, and again, and again. We're sharing them with you today so first
get inspired by the style set, and then implement these small changes into your everyday outfit planning. Next stop, Instagram.
1. Theme Your Jewellery
Look for pieces that work together or run in a similar theme. This could be straight lines, long pieces, delicate or chunky. Silver and gold together is very right now, and of course, the stack.

2. Clash Your Patterns
If you're nervous — start small. Replace a neutral with stripes from the same colour palette. If you're a seasoned clasher, go all the way. Just keep a common colour theme throughout.

7. Play With Texture
The secret to pulling of a monotone look is to mix up the textures. Lace and faux fur, leather and denim. Keep it interesting but remember to experiment! The blogger look is anything but safe.

8. It's All About The Jacket
Blazer, bomber or bolero — the right jacket can take your look to the next level. Drape it over your shoulders for added cool, and don't be scared to layer two. Yes, that is a thing.
