They’re always ahead of the curve when it comes to new trends, and their fashion choices have inspired us to make more than a few purchases. And lately, we’ve noticed some key wardrobe essentials every chic Melbourne girl has been wearing on repeat.

Bold style statements are in, and that means anything from sleek patent leather to oversize metallic earrings. But one of our favourite pieces is the edgy accessory that’s selling out everywhere: the metal handle bag.
