Last month, we showed you the pieces every Sydney girl wears to stay cool in summer—so we thought it only right to showcase the items that fill up our Melbourne sisters’ wardrobes. As we mainly work from our offices in Sydney, we tracked down Melbourne-based fashion forecaster for Sportsgirl, Jessica Burrow, for her insights.
“Melbournians are the masters of effortlessly stylish layering. When it comes to summer dressing, comfort and light layering is key to ensure you’re not freezing inside the office, while temperatures are scorching outside. Aka: typical Melbourne weather in summer. Summer office dressing is all about looking fashionable yet effortlessly cool, top to toe, and these are the pieces that are always #trending.”
Keep scrolling to see the pieces every Melbourne girl will have in her work wardrobe this summer.
“This essential layering piece works perfectly over simple outfits during the day, or as a stylish addition for cool evenings out.”

WHO: Chloe Hill
“They are back! (Or maybe they never left?) This trending silhouette is feminine and flattering—a versatile style mainstay for every office wardrobe.”
WHO: Jessie Bush
“If your outfit is slightly more casual, your accessories game is the ticket to ‘office appropriate’—these will elevate the simplest of looks.”
WHO: Yasmin Sewell
