10 Aussie women with insanely great style

26th January, 2020

When I think of Aussie style, it’s often synonymous with words like effortless, relaxed and understated. We often do resort style dressing beautifully, cultivating a look that works with our laidback lifestyle. That doesn’t mean we don’t do fashion that’s modern, fashion forward and polished. The wonderful thing about Australian fashion is that it’s also a scene that allows for plenty of room to explore overseas trends while giving a distinctly local vibe. So what better time than Australia Day to shine a light on the homegrown women who have wardrobes to die for.

As the fashion director of Vogue Australia and co-founder of Wardrobe NYC, Christine Centenera has the kind of innate style that demands attention. Favouring sleek, fashion forward pieces incorporating minimalist accessories with edge, she never fails to deliver outfits that are intriguing and just a little envy inducing.

Lara Worthington’s style has evolved over the years from beach girl to glam and now into its current minimalist iteration, which works for her like a dream. Simple, streamlined cuts, muted colour palettes and the occasional print all work together to produce a wardrobe that’s oh-so effortless and inspires at every turn.

As a an influencer and founder of beauty brand Elle Effect, Elle Ferguson has the kind of boho meets beach style (always perfectly accessorised with beachy waves and golden glow) that perfectly encapsulates the vibe that Australia is known for. With a penchant for natural textures, pieces with an edge and stunning designer accessories, her style is one that’s coveted with every outfit she wear.

From fronting major fashion magazines to her exquisite custom Valentino wedding dress and on point style at every major fashion event she attends, there’s no doubt that Nicole Warne Shadbolt has style in spades. And with her recent announcement that she’s expecting her first child, prepare for amazing maternity style like you’ve never seen before.

Jesinta Franklin

Mama-to-be Jesinta Franklin often favours cutting edge pieces while maintaining a feminine vibe and that aesthetic hasn’t waned at all throughout her pregnancy. She’s not afraid to push boundaries and often embraces vibrant hues, unique silhouettes and bold accessories that all work together to create a strong look that’s made for serious #ootd inspo.

Carmen Hamilton

Founder of Chronicles of Her, fashion blogger Carmen Hamilton has a style that’s polished but adds edge and grittiness with fashion forward silhouettes and striking accessories sprinkled with gorgeous textures and the occasional print. She has the kind of style that you just can’t help but be intrigued by what she’s wearing.

Nadia Fairfax

As a close friend of Nadia’s I’ve always loved her wardrobe and playful approach to style. Favouring prints, vibrant colours and beautiful feminine tailoring, her aesthetic is the epitome of what can happen when you have an approach to dressing that’s not afraid to have fun.

Deborah Symond ONeil

There’s a distinctly feminine approach to Mode Sportif founder Deborah Symond ONeil’s wardrobe. With a love of pretty prints, beautiful detailing such as frills and ruching and playful accessories, her wardrobe is one that’s always polished and perfectly pulled together.

Margot Robbie

As a bonafide Hollywood celeb, Chanel ambassador and glossy magazine fave, Margot Robbie often never puts a foot wrong. She’s also a style chameleon. She can go from edgy one minute to ultra feminine the next without skipping a beat. And in her down time, she lets her laidback Aussie roots shine through favouring relaxed pieces that inject her off duty looks with plenty of personality.

Camilla Freeman Topper

As the creative director of one of my favourite Australian brands, Camilla and Marc, it’s no surprise that Camilla Freeman Topper just oozes style. With a discerning eye, she curates a wardrobe that’s unique, modern and adventurous all at the same time without ever looking anything but polished. An apt description for the brand she helms wouldn’t you say?

Stylish Aussie women that give great fashion inspo

26th January, 2018

Happy Australia Day! Seeing as today is about celebrating all things Australian, it seemed fitting to shine a spotlight on a few ultra stylish Aussie ladies and their services to fashion. Their ability to be impeccably dressed all year round gives us endless fashion inspo to enjoy and bookmark for our own wardrobes. And while all their styles are unique to them—some epitomise a relaxed bohemian vibe while others’ signature look is about embracing a polished, refined aesthetic, the one thing they have in common is their uniquely Aussie approach to dressing. They’re all about a nonchalant attitude to fashion that allows them to not only look amazing but have fun at the same time. So here they are, some of the most stylish ladies to hail from Oz.
