After spending a few days in Melbourne, I’ve figured out the perfect ensemble to get you through a typical day at this time of year. May is when the temps start cooling down, so it’s important to pack for the option of layering during the day and night. I suggest a substantial leather jacket like this one from All Saints and a couple of lightly layered longsleeve tees to go underneath.

Instead of completely dressing down in flats, try a pair of heeled ankle booties paired with cropped jeans (my favorites are by ITEM, but these by Goldsign are similar). They’re very comfortable but provide a nicer touch to the ensemble. Finish off everything with a pretty statement necklace and a tote bag, because you never know what you’re going to need when you are walking the Melbourne streets all day! For chillier days, top the outfit off with a printed scarf like this one by Tilo.
