As fashion week unfolds in Sydney, Australia, we asked fashion blogger Sara Donaldson from Harper & Harley what she’s planning to wear during these particularly stylish fall days in her hometown. Not only is Donaldson one of Australia’s most fashionable girls but she’s also gorgeous. We love how she’s made black, navy and gray the main colors of her wardrobe, which consists of tailored pieces, modern leather staples and the ultimate basic T-shirt to balance things out. Her staple shoes — peep-toe booties and gladiator sandals — never fail to make us swoon at her sophistication and effortless style.
Now, feel free to take a cue from her MBFWA list below!
Diagonal Mesh-Panel Sweater
"Knitwear with mesh detailing is the ultimate comfortable yet fashionable piece."
Aubriana Woven Cage Sandal
"Boots with a cage effect are a perfect way to add a textured element to your look."
Long-Sleeve Merino Pullover and Turn-Lock Pencil Skirt
"A knee-length black pencil skirt with a little bit of detailing, especially the inclusion of hardware and a split, adds that lift to a basic ensemble. "
Jane Leather Ankle-Wrap Sandal
"A simple black heel with minimal straps will finish off any outfit, day or night."
"A tailored blazer is an easy way to turn an outfit into boyfriend-chic."
MARC by Marc Jacobs
Nessie Leather-Sleeve Jacket
"With the weather cooling down quickly, a coat is essential for tossing over the shoulders — and also breaks up an all-black outfit. "
Rockstud Medium Flap Bag
"For me, it’s all about a simple black bag with hardware. Bonus points if you can turn a shoulder bag into a clutch at night."
Lamb Leather Motorcycle Jacket
"A leather Jacket can be worn in a variety of ways. I currently like a cropped version zipped up all the way."
Mid-Size Golden/Horn Stainless Steel Runway Three-Hand Watch
"A perfect accessory to complete the look and keep me on time for the shows."
Poem Catwalk Square Sunglasses
"Sleek black sunglasses are a must during the day."
