The Melbourne Look

I have been here a week now and most of my focus has been on getting my bearings and seeing the sights but the last couple of days I have been people watching. On one of the city tours, our guide told us about the 'Melbourne Look'. I don't think that the lovely Lisa is wearing it!
It seems that Melbournians are interested in that daily idea of a wearable, dark, draping elegance, devoid of bling. What I am surrounded by is ladies wearing skinny jeans or leggings,  T shirts, short cardigans all in black or charcoal worn with either pumps or boots. Hair is a sleek bob or a messy up style and make up natural nudes. No glamour or colour - the look is casual and sporty - which sums up Melbourne!
