We know it probably gets boring for them—endless sunshine, great tans, toned bodies from all that outdoor exercise—but Australian girls really do have it sorted when it comes to summer fashion. That's why we're always grateful at this time in the year to witness Australia Fashion Week playing out in Melbourne.
It means the best of the best dressed are out in full force, showcasing how they're tackling the season—even if it is technically their "winter," the temperatures align nicely to the UK summer, i.e., what we need to wear now. While still dubious about leaving overcoats or jackets at home but keen to bare legs and crack out the sandals, our Aussie counterparts, it would seem, are walking the same style tightrope.
Thanks to our street photographer on the ground—that's Style Snooper Dan—we can look into the future of your month's wardrobe decisions and predict that the following outfits are well worth bookmarking for reference.
Go through the gallery to see the 15 ensembles we're into.

Style Notes: We've spotted drawstring detailing cropping up on dresses, tops and dresses recently.
Style Notes: The ole blue shirt–and-denim formula never fails to be reinterpreted season after season.
Style Notes: Sometimes there's nothing chicer than wearing black in the heat—unless you're adding a shock of matte red lipstick, of course.
Style Notes: Ribbon ties, ruffles… Could you ask for more from a statement top?
Style Notes: The plainer your crop top–and-denim combination can be, the better.
