Carmen Hamilton: How I Found My Personal Style

by Amanda Stavropoulos

Australia has an enormous number of internationally recognised fashion bloggers for such a small population. There’s a handful of successful women—Nicole Warne, Margaret Zhang, Sara Donaldson, Zanita Whittington (to name a few)—that have marked their name in the fashion industry with the help of their fashion blogs. Carmen Hamilton, of Chronicles of Her, is another name on the list, and with the recent redevelopment of her site she's guaranteeing herself a spot amongst Australia’s best.  

No matter what industry you work in, it’s important to always be looking ahead, evolve with the times and reimagine what you do. Hamilton has done just that, with Chronicles of Her taking a slight shift away from a personal style blog, into more of a website, servicing women as though it's their own personal stylist. Hamilton has created a place for women to share shopping tips and outfit ideas, and our favourite part—view exclusive street style images.

You may not remember, but the origin of street style is from a really authentic place. It's essentially people snapped in their regular day-to-day outfits. So Carmen is revisiting the past and taking street style back to where it began, with real women, and real style.

To celebrate the relaunch of Chronicles of Her, we teamed up with one of our favourite Australian influencers to find out how she got her start, why it was time to evolve her site, and find out what’s next. And of course, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to play dress-up in some of summer’s biggest trends (think relaxed pieces, neutral colours, and easy stripes). It’s the Who What Wear Australia way to do summer. Keep scrolling!
