Summer is here! And this sunshiney season is the perfect time to play with our fashion choices as we mix seasonal celebrations and joyous occasions with our warm Australian weather over the holidays. But while we love trying new trends, there are some staple pieces we always turn to.
Whether you are staycationing in the city or country, or spending the holidays by the beach, we’ve cracked the code to carefree and chic summer dressing with six staples you need to create the ultimate holiday capsule wardrobe. Let’s dive in!
An effortless maxi dress
A versatile maxi dress is a must-have for any summer getaway. Choose a lightweight, breathable fabric and a style that can easily transition from a casual day at the beach to a romantic evening dinner. Vibrant prints or bright block colours will complement the summer vibe.
A chic swimsuit
Whether you’re lounging by the pool or taking a dip in the ocean, a chic swimsuit is a summer essential. Choose a flattering silhouette that makes you feel confident and beautiful. This could be a stylish one-piece or a bikini – the key is to find a design that suits your taste and body shape. Make this piece work even harder by pairing with denim shorts or wide-leg pants to take you straight from the pool to the bar.
Versatile linen pants
Linen pants are a summer saviour. Their breathable fabric makes them ideal for warm weather, and they can easily be dressed up or down. Choose a neutral tone that complements your other wardrobe staples and wear them over your swimsuit for a chic day-to-night vibe, or pair with a linen shirt for a laid-back look.
A lightweight shirt
A breezy shirt is essential for transitioning from the beach to other activities without missing a beat. Whether it’s a flowy kimono, a stylish sarong, or a linen shirt, a versatile cover-up adds a touch of effortlessness to your summer looks while also providing protection from the sun.
Invest in a pair of comfortable yet fashionable sandals that can take you from exploring local markets to enjoying a sunset cocktail. Opt for a neutral shade that can easily match your outfits, and ensure they are easy to slip on and off for those impromptu walks along the beach.
An adorable PJs set
Don’t forget to pack a cute and comfy pyjama set for those relaxing evenings and lazy mornings. Whether you’re enjoying a leisurely breakfast on the balcony or winding down with a good book, a stylish PJs set adds a touch of luxury to your downtime.
