Fashion Week Trends Slip Dresses

5 street style trends we’re expecting to see at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia

We've got one eye on the catwalks and one eye on the streets.

Fashion Week is about more than just catwalk shows and celebrity spotting. One of the most integral and exciting parts of the six-day event is the street style.

And why wouldn't it be? Fashion Week is a time where the fashion community get together and pull out all the stops when it comes to style. Some of the coolest and most style-savvy trends are born on the footpaths outside the shows. So as Fashion Week Australia gears up, all eyes will be on the streets as well as the catwalks.

2016 has seen a few key street trends emerge and we're sure some of them will make an appearance at Fashion Week Australia. Here are some of the trends we're expecting to see.

Fashion Week Trends Layering

Tops layered under spaghetti straps

Love it or hate it, this 90's trend is back in a big way. Plus this trend is a great way to wear a strappy top or dress without freezing in the frigid May weather.
