Australian summer fashion tips

As the Australian summer approaches, it’s a great time to spruce up your wardrobe with some new favourite pieces. Here is our latest fashion tips for Summer to help you choose your next clothing and accessory purchase.

1. White on white

White is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe – try white on white, team with a nautical tee, or keep it simple with a white top and denim shorts. Our tip for this season’s essentials: a cute crop, a slim white skirt and beach cover-up.

Everything looks better in denim and we love it this season. Whether it’s shorts, a dress or top, just team with your favourite flats and accessories and you are good to go. Our fav’s are from Tanee Clothing: Denim Pleat Shorts, Denim Edge Top and this Which Way Daisy Dress.

3. Boho bag

5. Fedora

Trends by fashion stylist, Liz Golding

We asked fashion stylist, Liz Golding, for her top trends for this season:

2. Floral Dresses. “I have a definite lean towards colour and prints, so the trend for floral dresses is fine by me. It is perfect for our climate and the gorgeous sunny days in Queensland.”
Our choice: This strappy Toby Heart Ginger Vintage Blossom Maxi – just perfect for the hotter months.

3. Textured fabrics. “I have noticed a great trend towards thicker textured fabrics like damasks and heavy laces. It is an easy care fabric but I am waiting to  see how it goes in our humidity. Great for the cooler months but a bit hot for February in Queensland I think.”
Our choice: This gorgeous Mexico Dress by Sundays in cream lace – the perfect choice for your special occasion.
