Looking for some fresh new outerwear? Despite the unseasonably warm weather (apparently, Sydney is in the midst of a heatwave and Melbourne is experiencing the hottest May since 1972), sooner or later (hopefully later), we’ll have to don a coat. Thanks to fashion’s current obsession with all things 60s, graphic prints, gingham and bold monochrome are en vogue, with the likes of Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham giving black’n’white the thumbs up. Get inspired by Olivia Palermo’s steezy salt-n-pepper jacket this season, which mixes textures and patterns, proving that the classic combo is perennially fresh and easy to wear, whether you're colour-keen or colour-averse.
