Godwin Charli SS16 Collection - My Top Picks

It's finally that time of year again, the Melbourne weather is starting to play nice once more and Racing Season is just around the corner. Yes, it finally feels like spring has truly sprung and to celebrate the turning of the seasons I have teamed up with one of my favourite Melbourne based suiting labels - Godwin Charli

Below is a collection of my favourite key pieces from GC SS16 that has been carefully curated to transition you from Winter Layering through to Summer Suiting and everything in between. 

Look 1:  The Layered Look 

I'll be first to admit that this one isn't quite the Spring Summer look, but knowing Melbourne's weather, this layered look is perfect for the early weeks of Spring before things really start heating up.  All of the individual items in this ensemble can be perfectly paired with many other neutral tones and the blazer and chinos could quite easily be sported during the summer months as well. 

Look 2: The Transitional Three Piece  

This would be the perfect suiting option for the transition from Spring to Summer, this Wool-Linen blend suit is perfect for that warmer weather and could even be worn to the Spring Racing Carnival or other such Sartorial Spring/Summer events. 

Look 3: Portsea Polo Panache

This look is somewhat more daring than its counterparts, the trend of donning a pair of chino shorts with a blazer is much more commonplace in the land of Aus than it used to be and is an absolute favourite amongst the fashion-forward polo enthusiasts.  

Look 4: The Smart Summer Casual 

Last up, we have my absolute summer staple, a clean crisp white shirt and some tailored mid cut chino shorts; the perfect option for a little leg action on those smouldering Summer days.
