As a Sydney girl, travelling to Melbourne is always an exciting getaway. I see the city with fresh eyes every time I touch down—but most importantly, it’s the style that commands my laser focus.

Keep scrolling to see the style tips Melbourne girls always get right (and if you’re in the mood to shop, we have you covered for that, too).
