Street Stylin’: Old Bus Depot Markets

Molly McLaughlin and Ashley St George

We spot Canberrans dressed in their Sunday best in this edition of Street Stylin’.

It’s not just great food and beautiful handmade goods to be found at the Old Bus Depot Markets — you’ll also discover super-stylish Canberra mums, sisters and daughters. Despite (or because of) the miserable weather we snapped some chic autumnal outfits, with monochrome layers the go-to trend.

Emily, Griffith and Donna, Calwell

“Because I dress her [my baby daughter] so well I feel like I have to lift my game!”

    They look fabulous. I’m impressed that you found those outfits at a market. I would have worn my good tracksuit.
