Melbourne weather is looking bleak and dreary, but that by no means has stopped the Melbourne Fashionistas from coming out full force. Rocking the famous Melbourne layered outfit, this Fashionista shows us how to cope with the arctic weather whilst creating a contemporary Melbourne look.

A Fashionista must be wary of the amount of layering that she decides upon, as adding too many layers onto a winter look can seem to create the illusion of being swallowed up by wintery garments. The key to pulling off a winter look is to balance a winter outfit rather than being lost in it. Complementing a heavy coat or jumper by wearing black skinny jeans as our winter-chic Fashionista has is a perfect solution. The contrast between the varied colours and textures creates interest whilst the darling schoolgirl shoes with rolled-up jeans and long socks form a unique street-cool vibe to the outfit.

Even under these cold, grey skies, this Fashionista has taken advantage of this season’s latest trend; candy-coloured staples. So, why not spice up an outfit by adding bright and fun candy-coloured accessories to create an instant contemporary-chic look. This Fashionista's cand- coloured headphones are perfect as they add a contemporary touch to the entire outfit.

It is this Fashionista's hair, however, that is essentially the defining statement of cool. The mid-length cut has taken over the streets of Melbourne this season and are proving to be the It style of the season. It’s a relatively simple style, cut into a one-length bob and styled messily to create a shaggy style, creating a super chic, ultra low-maintenance look. This style is fantastic, as it has proven to complement most face shapes and hair types. This Fashionista rocks the messy lived-in mid-length cut full of texture and body. To replicate this look, hair stylists suggest half-drying lengths after a shower by blowdrying hair with a diffuser then allowing it to naturally dry, then creating texture by scrunching the tips with fingers.
