How to dress like Offspring’s Nina Proudman

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, Nina Proudman 180 Comments

It’s been almost two years between Offspring de-brief posts here on Styling You.

If you’re new to these parts, I’ve been writing “how to dress like Nina Proudman” post since Series 1 (the back catalogue is here).

What started as one post where I thought I’d see if anyone else out there was as crazy a fan of Nina’s style as I am, grew and grew and grew until that moment two years ago when we thought it might be all over.

But dear readers, I never gave up hope.

Yes, I’m a glass half full kind of girl but I still felt it deep down in my waters that that wouldn’t be the last we saw of Neens and the Proudmans.

Many of us are still reeling from Patrick’s death. I know, I know. It makes me sad too. And then I remember these people are not real, they are TV CHARACTERS.

We’re already being teased about new love interests for Nina in Series 6 of Offspring but I’d like to see Leo given a good run. This new doctor character showing up on the trailers – Angus (Daniel Wyllie) – is all very confusing for me.

See, I’ve been following Asher Keddie’s rising star since Love My Way (2005-2007) and Asher’s already been “married” to Daniel. That didn’t work out so well then, did it? (BTW how good was Love My Way? Do yourself a favour if you’ve never seen it).

I do not know what this series will offer up but I do know that the writers have a collective super power of being able to take us on a rollercoaster of emotions with every episode.

Also possessing super powers are the costume designers behind the show – Michael Chisholm and Zed Dragojlovich. Each season they just nail it with Nina Proudman’s style – and all the other characters for that matter.

It is Nina that you all ask the most questions about so it’s Nina who I asked most about when I got to recently chat with Michael.

I’ll share the full interview next week on the blog but there is some intel below on this week’s pieces worn by Nina in episode 1.

The key message I got from Michael was that Nina knows her style but she always likes to keep it fresh, to play and change it up. Michael and Zed work closely with Asher in determining what Nina wear.

Other key points:

  • Every season there are always slight changes
  • The new silhouette will see Nina wearing more pants – wide culottes
  • There will be new labels included in both clothing and accessories
  • We’ll see more retro/vintage pieces
  • We’ll see pieces from international labels that Michael and Zed find on their travels
  • There will be less floral pieces on the bottoms and more pattern on top
  • We’ll see Nina in more stripes
  • Scarves are back but they are bigger pieces

As with previous de-briefs, even if something is new (and not retro), it will probably not be available in store now. It might be coming next summer or simply be long gone.

For future episodes, I’ll do my best to find similar options to what Nina wears but I will need the fashion seasons to change into early spring as most clothes available now are high-winter pieces.

Read on for details about how you could rock a Nina look this spring-summer. One lucky Styling You reader will win a $2000 11-piece Nina-inspired mini wardrobe.

The de-brief (spoiler alert)

Offspring Season 6 Ep 1 | How to dress like Nina Proudman | Photo credit Channel Ten

I’m in Hawaii doing a juice cleanse which is indeed code for drinking as many Mai Tais as humanly possible so I’ve got fellow Offspring fan Robyna to de-brief here for us. Robyna is also going to be part of the Styling You team from mid July … more about that when I return.

… Thanks Nikki. I’m so glad I’m here because clearly, we NEED to talk. How much happened in the first episode of the season?

Within moments we had an insight into Leo and Nina’s strained relationship. And reassurance that Nina’s style is still firmly luxe boho. Then the bombshell hits that Darcy has had a fatal heart attack. What? Five minutes in and we are dealing with the loss of a major character? I thought Game of Thrones was over.

Billie deals with the news in true Billie style. With internet research and deep, sister-connecting breathing. As she imparts her somewhat rehearsed but supportive messages to each of the clan, the line of the night goes to Cherie: “Have you been on the internet?” To which the calm and collected Billie replies softly, “Yes, thanks for noticing.

When Billie sees Zoe, grown into a gorgeous little girl, she says what we are all thinking: “You’ve grown up so much“. Seriously, how cute all are the little Proudman kids?

We meet Lawrence again, with even better hair and a partner who is days away from giving birth. Melbourne must only have one obstetrician as they have picked Nina and her ‘soothing’ voice. A fact that slightly goes to Nina’s head.

Nina and Billie go to see Darcy’s estate lawyer, hilariously called Will. Although no-one makes the obvious joke until Jimmy at the funeral, where it all goes down in true Proudman family style. “I’m telling her,” hisses Clegg as it unravels that Will is actually Darcy’s son and long lost half-brother to Billie and Jimmy. And who-knows-what to Nina. But I’m not cool with the ‘vibing’.  I was very cool with Geraldine’s snide attack on Phil D’Arabont’s presence at Darcy’s funeral: “Here to make sure he’s really dead?

I hope the ever-so-slightly stoned Geraldine didn’t ruin that gorgeous green top as she hurled tacos at her old friend, Will’s mother and apparently her late husband’s paramour.

After delivering good-hair Lawrence and Maddie’s baby, some excellent study advice (complete with YMCA-style actions) to Zara and a shoulder for Cherie to cry on, Nina joins her (original) siblings in the park. As the little ones sleep in a make-shift tent, the older Proudmans say a quiet goodbye to their dad and perhaps it all finally hits Nina. I wonder whether Darcy will re-visit Nina’s thoughts in much the same way Patrick did. I gather from his absence from the credits that the delectable Matthew Le Nevez has most definitely moved on (sob).

Despite all the sadness in this episode, the Proudmans still deliver plenty of laughs. For me, the most poignant moment was the message Nina sneakily discovers in Billie’s wish jar. Let’s hope that Billie gets ‘a life of her own’ this season. With a really lovely wardrobe for us to drool over.

    Any idea where you can buy the liberty print blouse over green cami. on last night’s episode. Thanks Anne

  • Lisa

    Hi!! Loved the leather jacket Nina had on when dropping Zoe off to daycare in last nights episode … any idea brand??

  • Marita Bird

    I love Nina’s fashion style! It’s elegant & classy without trying too hard, but also casual and comfortable – easy & effortless. I’m related to Asher so hopefully, I’ve inherited some of her & Nina’s style taste. 🙂

  • Angel Le Clerc

    Where can I buy the Ted Baker blue velvet jacket Nina wore. I love it

  • Celia

    I love Nina’s effortless style! I try to imitate it with classic well-fitted jackets and jeans paired with beautiful statement pieces like a special scarf or stand-out jewellery.

  • shirley maxwell

    I will just comment I don’t have even close Ninas style but I would love to create her look please help with this awesome prize many thanks

  • Tracey McQuinn

    Why is Nina’s style my style…… well since Offspring appeared on our screens and I started following Nikki’s blog, I have found my style. Its clothes I feel great in (even gorgeous) from maxi dresses and maxi skirts, jeans with my knee high boots (which I have many) it’s from the scarves that seem to multiply in the wardrobe. Its just become me!! I like that no matter age or size you can always find something that you can make work and feel amazing in. I’m most excited that the show is back on, if only to see Nina’s clothes. 🙂 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/26d5edaa13a369b06394716e7cf723436188b1e86dc80a37a7f7b79f153c430e.jpg

    The moment Nina (Neens) blessed us on our screens I have been totally in love with her! Yes you could say I have a girl crush lol. Wednesday’s became my favourite day, Neens day. I would get myself comfy on the couch in my pj’s with a nana rug, accompanied by a glass of wine, chocolate or any another sweet thing as massive sweet fan, and a box of tissues and was ready for the tears, laughter, smiles and some more tears for an hour, my happy place! I love the roller coaster ride that the Proudman’s take us on each week. Back then I even changed my FB name to JoNeen’s and bought a Silver Mazda 3 and my partner (now husband) called it Threena lol. When I came across your FB page was that happy that I could buy some of Nina’s clothes and yes kind of pretend I was her lol as I sometimes think hmmmm Neens would sooooo do that. So each Thursday morning was super excited to read your posts and then get searching and buy a little piece of Nina! I happened to purchase some of Nina’s 1st gems, the floral sheer skirt from Mimosa, the light grey Palma top, and the All About Eve green cardigan. But one of my most favourite find was the floral Violet and I dress. Nina wore it in a green but I could only find the burnt orange one and I absolutely love it. I bought it for my 40th birthday gathering with my family which is the photo I have attached and I have worn it over and over again! I was a peace with the Proudman’s leaving our screens and was happy with the final episode and when found out it was coming back I had hoped it would still be as crazy and that we still felt ever emotion they do and the new season hasn’t let me down! Love love love it! Since Nina left our screens I got married and had a baby and can certainly relate to this season. I would love to win Nina’s wardrobe, would give me the kick start of getting back into shape after having my little boy Ollie a year ago and if Neens can rock this wardrobe being a new Mum so can I. Thank you Nikki for giving us (the fans) the opportunity to do so…. with that my little boy is asleep and I may just watch last nights episode again! Have a tremendous Thursday! xxx email address is jodes.forbes@gmail.com

  • Sarah Driscoll

    I so adore Nina’s style! I seem to have trouble pulling a look together and as a mum I think that’s why I love Nina’s looks so much; effortless but so stylish and individual, just what we need to feel special.

    I’d actually share ‘my loot’ with my best mate. She is currently living in the UK and I’ve promised her I will wait and watch this current season with her when she’s home later in the year. How great would it be to sit together in our Nina outfits and binge watch this entire season together?!?!?!?

    So I think I’d rock these pieces and make you all PROUD(man) as they would be my daily stylish wardrobe. I would feel great and not mumsy at all! Nina’s stye is my style because I’d love to be her. We all think those things…. we just don’t say them!!

  • Katie Parker-Vukusic

    Quite simply put a Nina inspired outfit puts a smile on my face and makes me feel good about myself. The outfit in my picture has definitely helped to banish away the winter blues and puts a spring in my step on an otherwise bleak, cold and rainy winters day!

  • Carlie Jean

    My newest favourite is the deep blue / teal velvet jacket pictured above. I found a similar one on cotton on and instantly purchased it. The colour and material is so appealing to me and the way Nina wore it with a maxi dress works surprisingly well. I would have thought a shirt and jeans but once again Nina has opened my eyes to new pairs.

  • Carlie Jean

    Ninas style is my style as we share key elements in how we dress. One of the main elements is accessorising. This makes any outfit go from so-so to WHOH! Earrings. A scarf. Jacket. Shoes (boots, flats or heels). Necklace. Watch. Bracelets. A bag. You can really build up an outfit.

    I also feel Ninas style is my style as she loves the free flowing, colourful, beautiful world of boho clothing as well as different materials and textures as I do. However not being limited solely to that style. I feel , Like Nina, I cannot strictly put my style into one category as it is varied day to day, depending on how I feel, the weather, where I am going, the time of day. These things all influence the outfit choice for that day to the next.

    Nina has a strong undertone of bohemian mixed with sophistication yet can also step away from that at times. She is still free to express herself with an array of different pieces.
    Skinny leg Jeans. Maxi floral skirts. Flair pants. Block colours. Vibrant prints. Denim jackets. Velvet jackets (one of the latest additions we have seen). Leather jackets. No jacket. Cardigans. Suede jackets. Maxi dress. Boots. Heels. Flats. Thick knitted scarves. Thin decorative scarves. Vests. Bags. Necklaces. Bracelets.

    Ninas style is ever changing, and always amazing. I will continue to be in awe of new outfits. I will continue to fall in love at first sight with certain pieces (such as my newest love; the deep blue velvet jacket she wore last week pictured above that I found Cotton On have online) and be inspired with new and interesting combinations Nina wears.

  • Kelly Arnold

    [N]ever boring beige, eclectic is key,
    [I]ndisputably bohemian, balanced with femininity..
    [N]otably relaxed silhouettes, both comfortable and versatile,
    [A]ll hail Nina’s wardrobe, epitome of spirited, carefree style!

  • Brooke Falvey

    I fell in love with this jacket the moment I saw it and then it appeared on Offspring being worn by Nina so it turns out that I’m not just like Nina in the over-thinking, talking to herself sense (which Mum loves to point out) but also in style. I like to balance a bit of boho with a bit of preppy and often use long necklaces and scarves as my main accessories.

  • Jenna Gray

    Nina is such an eclectic individual. This is why we love her. I wear what i like because i like it! Just like nina

  • Laura Scriven

    I love layering and unique scarves to add bling,
    Patterns make my wardrobe sing.
    Unique pieces & colours (like these jeans),
    Make dressing a dream.

  • Serena

    I stumbled across your blog a couple of years ago when I belated found Offspring and loved the Nina look. Semi boho but with city style. We are currently in Hawaii, yes I know you were here as well. Such a beautiful place. While staying in the North Shore I went into a little boutique and found this dress which I think Nina would like. Keeping it simple in keeping with Hawaii I am pretty sure that Nona would have walked out of the shop with the dress ! Thanks for the tip for the Mexican restaurant Bohu went there for dinner last night. I love reading your blog, it is the only fashion one I follow, usually stay with my foodie sites. You have taught me a few fashion tips!

  • Lauren Mentiplay

    My career in travel has opened my eyes, heart and soul to a world filled with eclectic colour, vibrancy and style. I have been drawn to Ninas stylish bohemian look over the years. A typical Nina ensemble would be packed I’m my suitcase at a moments notice. Easy to layer up, comfortable and fun!

  • Alex Claremont

    Omgsh how exciting! Nina just has an effortless style which is so feminine and incorporates all my favourite aspects of boho and modern fashions. For me this kind of style really captures the effervescence and joie de vivre of the character… And don’t we all want more of that! It really matches my style because its the flirty, feminine and kind of quirky vibe that I wear. I love it! Pardon my very strange expression below.. but I felt it was the best photo of my outfit 😛

  • Karrie Harte

    Nina is my style inspiration! She is such a complex character yet her impeccable look is always relaxed, effortlessly stylish, soft & feminine. She is the epitome of what so many amazing women I know represent….& what I aspire to be. I simply adore her character & love her style!

  • Mirela Karup

    Nina’s quirky style lights up our screens,
    Skirts, boots, prints, jackets and jeans.
    I love it all and am inspired each week,
    To be more playful, confident and chic.
    Styling You helps me along,
    To look for the right pieces and not get it terribly wrong.
    A Ninaresque wardrobe would be such an awesome prize,
    As my credit card and husband can’t handle many more Nina inspired buys!

  • theobriens

    Would it be terrible of me to post a couple more photos of me attempting to channel my fictitious style sister Nina??? I’m coveting everything in your prize pack, especially those Nicole Fendel pieces as I adore her jewellery! I’m keeping fingers and toes crossed I win! You’d honestly be doing my husband a huge favour as I wouldn’t need to spend any more money on my Nina wardrobe!

  • Kristy Ward

    I was living in Germany when “Offspring” started and didn’t know what my Aussie friends and family were talking about, but then I started receiving DVD box sets in the mail (along with Bonds undies – you can’t take the Aussie out of the girl!), and fell in love with the cast like everyone else. Here’s a shot of me with a dear friend at a gin tasting (I’m the blonde) and I’m wearing my Nina inspired boho jacket (sent by another dear Aussie friend). Can’t wait for the next series!

  • Candice

    I am very new to Nina’s world. Somehow I missed the original train, probably having the life overhaul of bub number 1 around the same time. Now with bub number 2 the last few years have seen me not really have a style, just throwing things on. A fortnight ago approximately I decided to finally implement some self care and finally unwrapped Season 1 which I had bought a few years ago for myself as a birthday gift. I am half way through season 2 and have begun to overhaul my wardrobe, my first major purchase is the jacket in picture and I am loving the versatility already. It is the first denim jacket I have had in my wardrobe in 20 years I have now realised. I also went searching for a necklace I had long forgotten about which both my girls love, my Miss 5 being amazed that Mummy was wearing a glam necklace! She was further intrigued by the fact that I have had it longer than I have known her Daddy! Taking stock of my wardrobe after saying I loved what Nina wears, I was suprised by how many pieces I already actually have that I can re introduce to my everyday style using Nina’s style as inspiration. What I love the most about Nina’s style in my world is that it allows me to express myself while still having the versatility I need to keep up with my girls. And the freedom of wearing pieces I love and not being caught up in what I ‘should’ be wearing in terms of trends and seasons!

  • Kellie

    Watching Offspring has inspired me over the years to embrace my inner bohemian, hippy chick. I was raised in a true hippy family with musician parents and, my mother dressing my younger siblings in their hand tie dyed nappies and singlets. And just like Nina’s family we are a mad lot, that only we could understand…that fight and love just as fiercely. And just like Nina I was kind of the odd kid who defied the hippy lifestyle and signed up for a very structured career. Although Nina’s wardrobe has and, continues to inspire me to embrace my style I can assimilate with Zara’s storyline. I just recently graduated my law degree, having finally gone back at 30! This means that for the past 5 years, like Zara’s A type perfectionist personality I’ve been a mad woman juggling kids and study. With this my wardrobe changed from corporate, to bohemian, many a layer worn…back to the journey of corporate again. Although these days as a graduate my wardrobe $$$ have been sadly spent on suits instead of my usual hippy silks and luxurious cottons, I’m always donning a scarf to remind me of my inner bohemian ‘Nina’. And basically as Nina has evolved in her wardrobe and life….so have I. But, I fill with joy when I get a nod of inner approval that I got it right when I see Nina wearing something from my wardrobe. This happened with last seasons much loved red Tigerlilly jacket and it happened just recently on episode 1 this season with her gorgeous velvet jacket. And each time I purchased these items I said to myself (and maybe to my teenage daughter at the time much to her amusement) Nina would just love this….so you can imagine my excitement when I got it right! I, like Nina have a multitude of layering scarfs, and love nothing more than pulling on an oldie but goodie every winter to just add that extra joy! I even moved from long boots to shorter styles last season like she did with her silk pants. Nina’s wardrobe inspired me to purchase all of the items I’m wearing in this picture during the last season…my binny label silk harem pants, my cropped leather jacket and especially my new earrings. I’m constantly inspired by the effortless style Nina pulls off thanks to Michael Chisholm. But, I think the best part is that Nina’s style reminds me to embrace and evolve my style every year by remaining true to what I love and, what works comfortably with my lifestyle. I must admit though I love wearing these pants with their swishy silk and the sound of my boot heel against concrete. I feel as confident as Nina looks wafting through the halls of her hospital ward. I kid you not…this goes through my head every single time I hear the sound! I would love to win this wardrobe addition because I just know I would love every single one of these pieces!!! And those scarves!!!!! To die for!!!! And with a boring work wardrobe and a killer HECS and book debt from the fulfilment of studying for 5 years I could really do with some nice new fresh pieces this summer. I do not ever post pictures of myself on the Internet and do not even own an Instagram account but so strong is my love for Nina and her wardrobe…( including that yummy Binny skirt …and that bag!) that I roped my kids in taking this picture on our way out today! Good luck everybody! PS please excuse that red bump on my chest…..I got it from irritating my skin….and guess what did it….episode 1 and Nina and her big scarves….I’ve had mine on my neck since….this is the result lol!

    • Kellie

      And just like Nina would have no idea…I wrote this on my I phone with all the effort of spaces in my paragraphs….which don’t show…and my photo is sideways…Sorry;)

  • Suzie

    Love watching the new series of Offspring and naturally following both the fashions as well as the attractive blokes passing through Nina’s life with great interest. (Please come back, Leo..) Although my Monday to Friday clothes are very much in the Billie wardrobe, my Nina always shows up at the weekends and on holidays. My picture shows me in my favourite label Camilla (ouch!) which I’m happy to save up for and purchase for very special occasions knowing I will have them forever. Looking forward to see what life has in store for Nina..

  • Beth Andrews

    I’d like to enter on behalf of my friend Sonia, who I’ve known for 25 years and who has always been ‘Nina’ to me. From the style to the awkwardness to the funny/inapropriate things she says, Sonia is Nina all over! This photo of Son (far right) at her 40th late last year is exactly who she is – effortlessly stylish and always happy. This year has been really tough with her mum recently being diagnosed with Alzheimers, so I’d love to win it for her to maybe cheer her up a bit x

  • shelbyward

    I think I’ve been a bit of a Nina even before I got to know her in my lounge room. What I like about Nina is that her fashion looks thrown together … but with confidence and worn with finesse. It is the language of the busy woman, flowing skirts and shirts, accessorised with boots, bags and scarves with a splash of colour. Whether doing hospital rounds (not me, Nina), shopping or tending to children (of which I have three), it’s all about being comfortable and yet holding strong to a sense of style and wellbeing.

  • Cathy

    First time I have watched Offspring this season and Nina has a great style. Have to say I’m hooked after two episodes and now the scramble is to catch up on previous seasons before next week.

  • Leah

    I adore Nina’s style, and get loads of comments when I wear this gorgeous boho (Nina inspired) dress with this quirky wooden necklace (my twist). There’s a lot we have in common style wise. Love my creams, browns & florals and demin/leather jackets. I’d be stoked to represent her style with these quirky & fun wardrobe pieces.

  • Emily

    When the lure of activewear is almost too much, I ask myself – WWNW (What Would Nina Wear)? Her style is my style because it’s quirky without being cray cray, it’s curated beautifully but not overdone, practical but never daggy. Here I’m rocking a boho maxi with a classic Nina tan boot. Not sure I’ve seen Neens in fur so that can be my little twist. I’ve shamelessly accessorised with a cute baby for the win.

  • Laura

    In this picture I donned my favorite Nina combination: a maxi dress and a fitted jacket for a stalker trip to her house when I was in Melbourne. A bit creepy I know, but what can I say I’m a huge Offspring fan. I am utterly obsessed Nina’s carefree, bohemian and quirky style as it’s so practical with a youthful edge, which is perfect for my student lifestyle! Wearing something bohemian and breezy makes me feel so elegant and polished without masses of effort!

  • Lucy Slater

    I deserve to win Nina Proudman’s wardrobe because 5 years to this day I wrote on my Facebook page that I wanted her wardrobe! I’ve loved it from day one. It’s effortless and stunning and exactly the kind of thing I would love to wear as a mumma. I’ve uploaded photo proof from my timehop of when I said this many years ago!

    I love Nina’s style. Tops with beautiful detail and streamlined jeans. I love that it works for everyday comfort and still looks beautiful and on trend. I love to dress with my own spin on Nina-esque style.

  • Daneyl Green

    As I wear a scarf nearly everyday (or wigs as I don’t grow hair), I loving being inspired by Ninas wardrobe on what to pair with it. Boho but still practical.

  • I think lots of people have found Nikki that way! Photo below – not sure why it’s not portrait, but it’s here! Fab dress.

  • Kirstin

    I ❤️ Checking out Nina’s outfits each week. Her style is flawless and effortless. My style over the years has changed enormously and I have always said that I’m a mood dresser- hence massive amounts of luggage when I travel because who knows what mood I’ll be in 😉
    I aim to be flawless and effortless just like Nina. She is a style inspiration.

  • Louise Fernando

    Favourite outfit was definitely the culottes and the white blouse. Not sure I’m brave enough to dust off the culottes just yet but my gosh Nina just kills it! Any idea where the blouse is from? I would love to add to my wardrobe! Thank you 🙂

    • It’s Willow, but last season. I’m keeping an eye out shopping on Friday to see what’s similar in store.

  • Amy

    I found someone on eBay selling two of the necklaces Nina proud man wore in season 4 by the Misuzi and they are going really cheap http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xmisuzi.TRS0&_nkw=misuzi&_sacat=0

    • Mia

      Really thanks and P.S if you type Nina Proudman in the search bar on eBay and you can get a whole heap of her clothes she has worn.

    • Oooh great find – there is a lot of Nina style available on eBay. You think last season is going to stop us? No way! 🙂

  • [on behalf of Linda Garske due to tech issues] I love the layered, boho, Nina look – I can wear a Summer dress with tights, boots, jacket and scarf and somehow it can still work! Great use of key items like Tiger Lily and cashmere in my wardrobe. I have always loved accessories – in fact used to design them for fashion labels – so being able to layer these is also fun. Sadly I do not possess a willowy frame and some boho looks are just not right on me but experimentation is key here – when you get it right, you can actually look more willowy! I’m a Mum of three teenagers and wife of another teenager(!) who all keep me young thank goodness. I have quite a corporate role and swing between casual boho and corporate depending on what meetings I have on. I have attached winter and summer looks – the large group one is a cousin get together Nikky – reminds me of your big relo gigs 🙂 I am the youngest of 23 cousins on my Mum’s side and this pic was taken in Wagga on a cold country night with a huge bonfire – fantastic! Not many girl cousins – thats me front centre.

    • Love the scarf and denim jacket look – just adds that layer of polish doesn’t it? And with boots – SO Nina.

  • hannah

    Argh Nina.. The working mum who dresses for comfort but always flawlessly and fashionably. I too dress for comfort, a flowing top, skinny jeans and warm long boots for winter. I love jackets to give my summer dresses some structure, and especially to conform in the corporate world. I love boots. Today I was home with sick little ones so we played dress ups and took turns taking photos of each other. We had fun doing things our way… Just like the proudmans do their way. I’d love the hand bag… Very stylish but OHhhh so practical.

    • Hannah

      Like Nina.. I forgot something! The photo

      • I LOVE the print on that skirt. Bahahaha – yes Nina would definitely forget to post her photo 🙂

  • Katherine Kirkwood

    I have loved embracing Nina’s style and making it my own in recent years, especially since having my two beautiful children. As I entered my 30s, my MASSIVE style-rut became so evident! On this inside I still felt like a young twenty-something, and I was naturally attempting to dress that way without any regard for how my body had… umm… “matured”. Needless to say, wardrobe confusion and much soul searching ensued… but then… ENTER NINA! – beautiful flowy fabrics, dangly accessories, long scarfs, pretty patterns – so flattering and stylish and comfortable all at the same time. So much less confusion in my wardrobe now, and so much more confidence (and fun!) it has brought to the simple everyday process of choosing what to wear and then heading out and about in it!
    Here’s my little re-creation of the above Nina/Leo moment… though the lack of height difference between my husband and I meant that my tip-toe effort just made my butt stick out… hmmmm… anyhoo, special thanks to my own wonderful leading man for his participation and my master 6 yo for managing to keep the camera steady enough to capture at least one non-blurry pic!

  • Jade

    Love the Nina Proudman look! The boho look is my style. The older I get the more I look for comfort in clothing and I feel the Nina look really gives that comfortable vibe. I’m currently in the process of selling some clothes to make room for more Nina inspired items, so those items would really come in handy. The flowing tops, dresses, boots and vintage jackets are simply amazing, keep them coming Nina! A little pic from my time living in London …

    • It really is a comfortable, relaxed kind of vibe isn’t it? Sometimes not as easy to put together as she makes it look though! Great photo.

Nina is quirky free and flowing, just like me. Her look is very natural and easy but there is attention to detail that sets it apart. Nina is always going somewhere her clothes get her places with long strides as you can see from my shot I’m on my way with a definite plan ahead for the day. It’s also a very feminine but never prissy. I love this casual look which is also hospital appropriate ( I work in a hospital). I hope I can add the above accessories to my wardrobe as my fossil bag is on its last legs and I’m missing the detail of the assesories that really complete a Nina inspired outfit. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4b6bea5c5d175f436b52de6ebe4f6c7eea3f6c115e4897268d1072282a0a488.jpg

  • I adore Nina’s style! And I adopt many elements of it into my own look, although not usually all at once. I love boho, and I’m a big fan of skinny jeans and boots. Floaty dresses are also lovely. I also like adding scarves to an outfit to create interest. How do I make it my own? My dresses tend to be knee-length instead of maxi, I tend toward darker colours (more traditionally ‘Melbourne’, perhaps?), my tops and shirts are generally more fitted than Nina’s (although not in the attached pic!) and fine jewellery doesn’t work with my fidgeter nature. My pic also features a heavier scarf than I’ve ever seen on Nina! Perhaps she’ll wear one like this when Zoe starts playing netball first thing on a freezing Saturday morning. x

    • Looking lovely as always. Those sidelines are freezing aren’t they!

      • Tracy Burrows

        My red hair and brown eyes is far from the blonde hair and blue eyes of nina. However what comes across as effortless, professional, casual, romantic, vintage, classic style is so very contagious and inspiring to many. What other style fits so many categories! The graceful and natural style while always a desirable in my head sometimes is hard to achieve without the right pieces. … Im an everyday person who sometimes nails it and sometimes misses the mark. I find myself asking ‘what would nina wear? always motivates and inspires during offspring season and out of season

  • Hailee Meehan

    I’ve taken Nina’s fashion lead for years to help me break out of standard choices at major chain stores. I kept seeing my style choices on older ladies (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) and I wanted to reflect my younger and more carefree side. As a mum of four, and a creative, I love how easy it is to wear and how I can engage with texture and pattern. Plus I often get inspired and carry the influence into my paintings xoxo

    • Beautiful photo – LOVE that purse. It’s always great to inject a bit of a carefree into our wardrobes I think.

  • Madeleine Louise Davison

    I get told allll the time that I dress the same as Nina. I fact my friends call me Nina! It’s just so easy not matching and being carefree with what works! As a working mum too it’s so much easier!! All my earrings are by Nicole fendel, always wearing knee high boots, kimonos and cross body bags! This photo is me off to work this morning!

  • Ellen Lardner

    Nina and I share a love of bright prints and layering different textures. We also love wearing clothes that are comfortable yet stylish. In the photos I’ve uploaded I’m wearing a jumpsuit I wore to a wedding recently, made by a designer in warilla on the NSW south coast. I spent the night I wore it feeling confident and fabulous! I had a ball! Every time someone complimented me on my ‘dress’ I kicked one leg out to the side and said ‘it’s a pant suit!’ in an awkward Nina-like fashion!

    • WOW That pant suit is amazing! I would do the same thing and show it off 🙂

  • Bec Nelson

    I love the flowy materials, layering, lace, embroidered look, more of the earlier seasons outfits. I enjoy shopping the same labels, picking & choosing pieces to suit me as well, not just to copy Nina. I totally adore this classic take on a boho style. This dress I chose was one that Nina had worn except hers was green & I’m definitely not a green person.

    • I love early season Nina too – although looking forward to seeing how she styles wide legged pants. You look beautiful.

  • Kat

    Nina is just so effortlessly, stylishly comfortable – and exudes a quiet confidence that I admire and aspire to . A bit quirky and unique, yet practical, flattering and oh so chic regardless of the season. Always perfectly accessorized, and a bit of a fashion forward risk taker, she nails it every time without fail! Total wardrobe envy here! Nina styling inspires me daily, and some days I think I almost manage to pull it together… but could definitely use some help…

    • I think you have put it together beautifully!

      • Kat

        Thanks Robyna – we were dressed to head out to lunch for my 10 year old daughter’s birthday! We had a ball taking turns posing and snapping

  • My friend and I were also pregnant during that season and we definitely adopted some Nina maternity styling tricks. Can’t go past a kimono!

  • Will look forward to see if Nina takes note – looking beautiful!

  • Melissa O

    I adore the navy blazer and dress combo. Modern, fitted and stylish

  • Richelle Harman

    I just love Nina’s individual style, it’s almost as though she’s wearing her personality. It’s confident, interesting and timeless – everything I’d hope to emulate.
    This is me rocking a nina-proudman style dress and top from previous seasons, which I’ve made my own with a classic JCrew denim jacket, mimco jewellery, the Horse watch, and scarf gifted from a friend.
    Neens has been an inspiration for me on a personal level as well, finding myself unexpectedly single while pregnant at the same time. Aptly my birth story was very similar to Zoe’s eventful arrival! I’m looking forward to seeing Nina juggle her career and family again this season, all while sporting her personal style.

  • Rosemarie De Bari

    I try to mix up my corporate office wardrobe with silky tie-dye scarves, flowy skirts and funky jewellery, with some mixed results (and strange looks from co-workers). I think that Nina’s stylists work very hard to ensure she looks so casual and put-together, and I WISH that I could make my fashion styling look that effortless.
    Weekends are better for me, I prefer swishy skirts, ankle boots or strappy sandals and pretty feminine prints. I also need to keep it practical, with three little girls.
    This picture is taken on the way to the beach on our holiday, I’m rocking a floppy hat, cotton shift dress and a baby carrier on my back! Keeping it real 🙂

  • Amie

    I adore Nina’s effortless ensembles-she shows that boho can be neat and professional, which I love. I feel most comfortable when dressed in loose but flattering layers, it’s so feminine and so much more ‘me’ than following other trends. I first found Styling You when Googling Nina Proudman outfits, I look forward to the how to dress series making a comeback this season! Here’s a photo of me as a wedding guest-brown boots completed the look. Loving the cooler weather (what little we get in Queensland) for its opportunities to layer up a little more.

  • Judi Adams

    Ah Nina where’ve you been, returning to the screen, wearing a blue Boho dress we’ve not yet seen, breezing through quirky life obstacles in clothes designed to be serene, For a Styling You Nina makeover I am very keen.

  • Jocie TJ

    I love Nina’s style as it has taught my to be more confident in choosy quirky pieces, and to be comfortable in myself. I am not really a clothes shopper I find it daunting and intimidating but I like the flowing pieces, colour combinations and accessories. Result..a much happier me from the inside out

    • I think it just helps when you figure out the style you are comfortable with. Shopping becomes so much easier.

  • jayla1987

    Nina knows her stuff, Definatley an array of awesomeness waiting for me hehehe

  • Natasha Edgar

    Corporate office clothes are so boring but corporate boho aka Nina is the new black (or pinstripe). I need to win this so I can get rid of boring corporate and embrace a boho style that is confident, comfortable and more me. I’d post a photo but it would be corporate – and I’d look frumpy and uncomfortable.

    • Truth in Fashion

      Nina’s style isnt “coroporate boho” in any way.

      • I agree that she couldn’t wear what she does in a law firm without getting some strange looks. However, I think we are potentially going to see some more clothing that could be suitable for a corporate environment this season with the move to more pants.

      • Natasha Edgar

        You missed my point. Nina’s style definitely isn’t corporate.

    • Feel free to post a more relaxed weekend style. Corporate boho is a great idea.

  • It does just WORK 🙂

  • Just think about cost per wear! So lovely that Nina introduced you to this blog. I think there are lots of ways to interpret Nina’s style to suit different body shapes.

  • theobriens

    Is it possible to be related to a fictitious character?? If so, I’m pretty sure Neens is my sister from another mister. Either that, or they based her character on me. At any rate, from the moment Offspring began, I strongly identified with Nina. I have the same Boho style, a similar personality, and my family is also nuts. Granted they’re not as dysfunctional as the Proudmans, but they’re still nuts. I would love to win this prize as I could channel my inner Nina and actually wear her wardrobe (which is what sisters would do anyway, right?!). I’ve also been coveting a Noosa Amsterdam bag ever since I saw Nina’s mid-brown shopper in Season 5, but as I’m not a doctor like her, I can’t afford the price tag, so to win one would be brilliant. Anyway, I hope you like my outfit. The dress is from Country Road, the jeans from Bohemian Traders, the boots are from Witchery, my chain is from Najo, and my charms are from Palas.

    • What a gorgeous look! Nina has a few style sisters it seems. It would be nice to have sisterly access to that wardrobe wouldn’t it?

      • theobriens

        Thank you Robyna! It certainly would be nice!

  • Andieharrie

    Offspring
    is just the thing
    the show is easy to watch a lot
    love to get lost in the plot
    BoHo just like me
    colourful and carefree
    loose skirts
    flowing shirts
    love the comfort and style
    makes me smile

  • Amy-Jane Brown

    I think Nina stole MY style, ha! But I did source the tiger lily jacket after seeing her in THAT episode! I do love a bit of boho, with a bit of a basic which makes for a bit of fun! I go for a Nina vibe most days (pregnant or not!) and I love that I can adapt her sometimes pricey outfits to my budget (although I’d love to be on her wardrobe budget!)

    • So many gorgeous bump photos! Oh, for that wardrobe budget 🙂 You and your little one look great (kind of crushing on those cute little sandals)

  • Sandy

    Boho is such a great choice for work and play!

  • Suzie Elo

    I love Nina’s style, it’s boho chic, loose and relaxed and above all hardly any black! Colour makes me happy, especially pretty prints that are versatile and add depth to your outfit. Her look is not too try hard, but you know the pieces she wears are of high quality and they will definitely last a few seasons.

    • Yay for no black! I’m a Brisbane girl (like Nikki) and we tend to like our colour too.

  • Kat

    I love Nina’s fashion style and how she wears it with such relaxed confidence – that’s what I want and how I want to feel – Stylish, Relaxed, Confident!

  • Taryn Elizabeth

    Adore Nina’s style. Fits with my life. Love to look like I’m effortlessly in style. My own style x

  • Bianca Bonakey

    We are twins.. Feminine, hip and so so chic… I like to dress like for comfort and always in style

  • I adore Nina’s style and for it’s relaxed, modern boho feel. It’s fresh, not too over the top, individual, layered, patterned, feminine, gutsy, delicate, gentle, practical, yet looks like it’s just been put together in a blaze of glory heading out the door – perfectly every time! I may head out the door more blaze than glory most days, but I always try to incorporate at least one of those elements in my outfit. This relaxed boho modernish hippyish look is the backbone to which my wardrobe is built on so I’ve always got something that ticks at least one of those boxes and makes me feel like my outside matches my inside… and when this happens my heart is happy.
    ps. I’m wearing a Spell dress but my heart really belongs to Johnny Was x

  • Great tip!

  • Sheryl Bartlett

    Nina’s style brings together tailored pieces with some feminine flow in just the right amount. Enough that she’s taken seriously professionally, as a doctor, and also embracing some whimsy. It’s a refreshing move away from the need to power dress. We can be feminine and be taken seriously. Like Nina, I want my clothes to reflect who I am professionally without the clothes to wearing me, not making any designer statements, and being true to my feminine side.

    My wedding dress really shows that my style is Nina’s style. I teamed a tailoring waistcoat (Morrison), layered feminine flowing skirts (Ellery), and included the essential layered necklaces (not clear here, but my Grandma’s pearls I lengthened on some ribbon with two shorter delicate necklaces). I think if Nina got married she would look to my dress for some inspiration. She can borrow it if she wants!

    I’m currently doing volunteer work and spent the earlier part of this year in Rwanda working with a local child rights organisation. Winning this prize would help me retain some of my ‘classic tailoring meets boho style’ as I continue my volunteer work this year. Thanks so much for the opportunity. I love your work and looking forward to the Nina digests over season 6.

    (sherylmbartlett@gmail.com)

    • Oh that is simply lovely. SO gorgeous and I can definitely see Nina getting married in that. I totally agree with you about remaining professionally powerful and feminine at the same time in our dressing.

  • Liz

    I wonder if Nina will be using the Noosa Amsterdam bag again this season. I love my bag. Does quilt cover is from Adairs. My daughter has the same one and my mother purchased it from adairs. I would like to know where the painting is from?

    • Liz

      I mean Zoe’s quilt cover.

      • Lisa

        I think the painting is the painting Rosetti Santucci that was above Nina’s bed in the previous house.

        • Lisa

          Sorry Rosetta Santucci http://www.rosettasantucci.com

          • Thanks for that Lisa.

          • Maddie

            Hi Lisa, I have contacted Rosetta and she says it is not her painting??? I am about to give birth to my first child and it would look lovely in the nursery.

          • Lucy Mathinson

            Hi there Lisa, Rosetta sent me a email stating None of her paintings were used in offspring season 6 only the one above her bedroom which is not the one featured in Zoe’s Room. Rosetta thinks it maybe a one of a kind painting.

    • A few people love that bag! I’d like to see a return as well. And your painting question has been answered below. I’m not sure if it’s Adairs in the show, but that’s awesome that your daughter has the same one.

  • Annabelle

    I noticed on eBay that the white top from Zara that Nina wore last night is for sale on eBay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/302000351890?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&fromMakeTrack=true

    • Oh wow – great match. I’ll have to check in with Nikki re the Isabel Marant credit. Fabulous finding.

      • Donna Holmes

        Love the Isabel Marant top as well – Looks fantastic on Nina and the bell sleeves are so current. Look forward to each week’s update – thanks so much x

        • Mae

          I have the exact same top and its a Zara brand.

          • Donna Holmes

            Did you buy it recently? – probably wouldn’t have in Perth – we always seem to get the leftovers.

            • I think it’s not currently in season although one is being auctioned on eBay. It does seem to be Zara.

            • Mae Smith

              I think I purchased it last year, I cannot remember sorry. I remember seeing the top and thinking it is differently Nina’s style and it turns out she is wearing it.

  • Natalie Esler

    Pretty but still funky, flatteringly boho but form-fitting and suitable for work as well as weekends (topped off with a scarf and lots of silver jewellery)…my wardrobe has always been similar to Nina’s and I love that dressing up and accessorising is a way to express some creativity. I have been able to wear many of the pieces throughout my pregnancy (hellooo kimonos!) and the flowy separates are perfect for feeding my now 8wo baby boy.

    • Congratulations on your little one. I love how accessible Nina made kimono dressing. I’m a big fan. You look gorgeous — adore a bump photo!

  • Ashleigh-Rose Carucci

    I am a young Mum to two beautiful and energetic boys, living on the Tablelands of FNQ. I have taken inspiration from Nina’s style in my own wardrobe for numerous reasons. Dressing with a hint of ‘Neens’ means that my wardrobe can work with my local weather year round, layering up or down to work with cool evenings and mornings, as well as the scorching hot days. This style, which I have interpreted as my own, allows me to keep up with my active boys whilst feeling pretty and feminine. I am especially excited to see how the style team work in vintage pieces this season, as I love a little vintage and can’t wait to be inspired with ways to incorporate these pieces into my own wardrobe. I have taken Nina’s style to put together this look: jeans tucked into tan boots, a bright tank with a lace crop layered over the top, and a long necklace and chunky bangle. Thanks for the inspo Neens!

  • KMJ

    A couple of years Neens wore that long maxi green skirt! I had to have it. My need to own this skirt led me to google ‘how to dress like nina proudman’! Google place #1 was the Styling You blog. I immediately signed up and read it every week. Unfortunately the Binny Wear green maxi skirt was no longer in stock….GUTTED. But then next season there was the pink maxi skirt, a quick visit to Binny Wear and I was wearing it within the week!

    Then there was the Noosa Amsterdam bag…..I had to have that too! I bought the last one in stock! I still use it today.

    My love of all things Neens, lead me to Styling you and Binny Wear! AWESOME

    Mmmmmmmm now how to get a Patrick?

    • I’m so happy that Nikki was able to be such a shopping enabler for you 😉 If we figure out where they stock Patricks, we will be sure to share. That bag is brilliant!

      • Mae

        My sons teacher is a patrick look a like. My husband will not let me attend parent teacher nights anymore. 😛

  • Courtney Richards

    Great debrief!
    I’ve always been a neutral girl but Nina has really inspired me to start working more colour in to my wardrobe. Thanks for the inspo Neens! Her boho look is my style because it’s comfy and practical whilst still being so damn stylish! This is a picture of me and my puppy rocking a boho look with a bit of a 70s inspired vibe with the wavy hair and aviators 🙂 xx

  • Sophisticated Mumma

    How gorgeous was that Zimmerman dress?! Loved that and how I wish Brisbane had more jacket weather…well, sometimes 😉 Thank you for the debrief of the show because I fell asleep halfway though (I know!!) but in my defence, I’ve been pretty ill and tired this week. Nice to see you Robyna on SY…how exciting!

    • SO excited to be here. That Zimmerman dress is just so very lovely. Hopefully we will see some new season Zimmerman in the next episodes.

  • Ok, so here goes. Since having my two kids, my body changed significantly, think 12b to 14d boobs and a very, very loose, hanging stomach. I love the Nina style, Becuase I feel beautiful and confident all the while hiding the parts that I don’t want others to notice. I love teaming up simple outfits with statement scarves but particularly love mixing flowing tops with jeans and ankle boots. Thanks for the chance to enter (crushing hard on that handbag!)

  • Amna

    I wanted to love it but without the original writers I felt like the subtle, quirky element was gone? The awkward bits were very obvious whereas before they were hilarious for not being always “in your face” but just kind of a low level but constant element of her character. And before the characters felt like real, real people, whereas now, I don’t know, they just feel like stereotypes of themselves, or flat (like Zara). Not sure if I’ll keep watching because I want to keep the “real” Proudmans alive! 🙁

    • Amna

      The fashion was still cracking though!!

    • Madeleine

      I felt the same…it all seemed a bit clunky and obvious. Totally agree about them being stereotypes. And I would have liked to see a bit of Darcy before he died. He kind of felt like they killed him off just because. And the long lost son wasn’t much of a surprise. Plus nobody seemed sad?! But they only just started with this new series, maybe they’ll get back into the swing of things after a while.

    • I wonder if it’s just a first episode back after a long while thing? I hope so, but I know what you mean. I did think Cherie was written really well. The fashion was certainly still cracking as Amna says.

  • Stacy A

    The one thing I have learnt from Nina’s style that apply to my daily wardrobe is to never underestimate the power of a great jacket!! So glad she is back on our screens ☺️

    • I may have a few jackets in my wardrobe courtesy of Nina inspiration as well – looking beautiful (great eyebrows)

  • Mel

    I have the hair, I am a Doc, but hang on a sec, here’s a shock, I barely own anything resembling “neen’s”, I’m obsessed with her look… help me please???

  • Well firstly, congratulations on the safe arrival of your little guy. Your photo is beautiful (what a great bump!) and it almost looks like it could have been taken outside Nina’s apartment.

  • LOVE the scarf on you. It’s such a great way to inject a little “Nina” into our wardrobes.

  • Johanne Taylor

    I re-watched the last season of Offspring over the last few weeks in preparation for last night and it was so worth it. I was in tears just a few minutes in but I find that cathartic, so all good.
    Nina’s funeral outfit was to just gorgeous. Both the jacket and dress were divine and I can imagine her rocking that jacket with jeans for the extra textural element as well.

    • I hope we see that jacket again soon too. I must admit, I was thinking about revisiting the old episodes as well.

  • Holly

    Loved the first episode and really loved Nina’s blue jacket – gorgeous! Now I’m fantasising about how I can get my hands on one just like it! 🙂

    • It’s a Ted Baker, one-button velvet blazer that is unfortunately sold out, but I’m sure there are others similar available in the shops. Will let you know if I see anything!

  • Andrea Nunan

    Confession: Ive never watched it!! I lived in really remote areas and we cld get Foxtel but not free-to-air….Looks like a marathon of viewing cld be a good way to spend my semester break!!

    • That would be a fantastic way to spend your semester break. It’s just the right amount of kooky!

  • Loved the episode review! The hair, the boho style and of course the outfits. I loved the wish in a jar part too. I think Asher does those goofy moments so well. I thought she was never gonna get that wish jar back on the shelf. I’m intrigued to find out more about Billie….I want Mick back!

    • Yes – the hair! How gorgeous did both Bilie and Nina’s hair look? She’s so ladylike most of the time and then such a klutz as well – I love that about her.

    Hello there Robyna…. Oh I was so excited to sit down last night with a glass of wine and enjoy the new season. Can’t wait for next week. Don’t you just love Geraldine, god she cracks me up. And as for Nina and Leo….NOOOOO WTF??!!!!

    • Next to Billie, Geraldine’s lines are my absolute favourite. I guess we will learn more about Leo and Nina next week.

    Nina’s Shakuhachi dress with the Ted Baker jacket was absolutely gorgeous. I loved, loved, loved the colour of the pieces and those tassels hanging from the hem and the arms were to die for. I love how she added texture with the jacket and made the whole outfit look classy and sophisticated. Nina Proudman…my style icon!

    I love the unstructured style of Nina. While I’m sure she would not wear exactly all black the dress I’m wearing is flowy and the occasion was a races fundraiser. Obviously I’m not great on the photo front. But I just live Offspring and Nina’s style and would love a chance to win the prize.

    • You look gorgeous and I love how you have interrupted Nina’s boho style into something very “you”.

    I like Asher Keddie but can’t seem to warm to Offspring unfortunately.. I really liked Love My Way – it was a great round up of Australian talent. Dan Wyllie is also very good in Secret City which is on Foxtel at the moment.

    We need more good Australian content. The Time of our Lives was the best of them all in my opinion and I was sad when the ABC binned it.

    • Carla Moulds

      I agree that The Time of our Lives was excellent.

    • The Time of our Lives was wonderful. I keep hoping they’ll write another series, but the more time that passes suggests that’s a forlorn hope!

      • Marie Gardner

        I loved The Time of our Lives as well – so disappointed when that ended after 2 seasons .it was so real, I could totally relate to many of the characters issues & flaws

    • I need to revisit The Time of our Lives – how young does everyone look in it now? Offspring is definitely more kooky that the shows that preceded it.
