It's time to shake off the wooly layers and lose the winter skin in the Southern Hemisphere and we thought we'd bring together a simple guide to help you don your perfect effortless Summer wardrobe.
Summer in Australia means long hot days meandering the shores of unpopulated and vast beaches that stretch as far as they eye can see. Camping is often on the menu, setting out to stumble across a little secret oasis to set up for a while where you can laze about in the sun bleached sand for hours and drink in the majestic blistering sunsets.
It also means scrambling through masses of holiday goers on over populated beaches to secure your 'spot' for the day under the unforgiving blazing sun. It's flustered humid mornings where your makeup that you just applied is already melting down your eyes and your cars aircon decides to break down in the middle of the days heat! It's long balmy days stretched out on hot concrete - it's creating memories of a quintessential Aussie Summer.
Theres pro's and con's to having an unforgiving Summer, though one thing we know for sure is Summer dressing can be a lot of fun if you've created a wardrobe that's effortless, breezy and stylish. It's important to have key peices taking you from the beach to dinner easily without having to rush home first - after all we think Summer is a time to be foot loose and fancy free! Spontaneous!
Here's our 'Must Have' list to build your perfect Summer Wardrobe around. From here the rest is simply - a good old time.
The Slip Dress
It's become a classic staple in recent years - though practically can work in any scenario. Block colour, monochromatic or printed works and a simply throw on cotton button down shirt over the top creates a more relaxed and casual take on a sweaty friendly outfit. Throw on a pair of slides and your good to go. If your taking this look into the night simply wear as it, slip the hair up and instantly you have a sexy body draping look.
Washed Denim - Shorts, Boyfriend Jeans Overalls or Skirt
It goes without saying that denim and any season works a treat, though a light, boyfriend take on denim for Summer is a sure thing.
