S/S 23 Fashion Trend – Patterns

Getting a little tired of the regular stripe and floral patterns you see on the Australian fashion high street? Well, there’s a new fashion style in prints that’s soft, fun and easy to wear.

We’ve seen this look come through in clothing AND interiors so it will be around for a while, no ‘one-season-wonders’ here!

New Pattern Direction : “Roman Holiday”

Hand-drawn, hand-made aesthetic that need that human touch.

“Think childlike squiggles meets European summer holiday on natural fabric bases in an earthy palette”

The naive, child like quality to these patterns makes them perfect for spring, summer and autumn. You’ll never look like you’ve tried too hard, which is one of the main requests from my personal styling clients !!

How To Accessorise

My fashion advice? Keep it effortless by adding:

  • beach hair
  • sunnies
  • chunky sandals (try Australian fashion brand @AliasMae or sustainable fashion label @Aloha
  • straw bag (did you see my latest $20 purchase from @KMart on my insta that looks more like $120!? Take a closer look here )

Celebrating Australian Fashion Brands

I’ve focussed on 2 Australian brands that are coveting this fashion style that you may not be familiar, however you’ll see these types of prints all over the high street


Roame – a brand new fashion brand backed by Viktoria & Woods. The Iconic has best stock levels or try DJ’s if sold out on Roame website 


Jag – owned by Saba but more casual effortless looks based in linens and cottons. May need to go down a size. Jag website but again, try DJ’s or The Iconic for sizes

Earrings $40 @Etsy

Bracelet cuff $250 @Oroton

The Key Question Clients Ask A Personal Stylist

One of the main questions I get asked weekly is:

“what can I wear to a casual event like a bbq, girls lunch or friends birthday?”

My answer – one of these hand crafted patterns!
