Holiday Styles For A Summer Vacay

Pack those bags for the summer vacay. It’s peak Jan and you may be off to enjoy the surf at Byron Bay or cocktails in Hamilton Island, either way your summer vacay will round up the end of your summer holiday so it is time to indulge in all that is good. You have your swimmers, raffia sun hat and sunscreen packed, but what about that fancy dress for drinks at dusk? We recommend something that is printed, lightweight or pastel hued - big summer vibes. 

A printed flowy dress is perfect for an Aperol spritz at the beach bar while a lightweight pastel coloured number was made for dinner after dark - you will glow in a shade that is oh so bright. Lightweight dresses make for the perfect summertime staple. Although you may be bikini clad for most of the day (that Australian sun can be hot!), a summer dress is essential to finish each day of your holiday, and they perfectly pair with a well deserve vacation cocktail. 


For Oysters In Byron 

Oysters are a must have in Byron Bay. Think - ocean breeze in your hair, surrounded by blue hues & zesty oysters paired with bubbly champagne. It is time to soak up your vacation days and the best way to do this is in a breezy, silky dress which will wow and dazzle in any restaurant you walk into, and any beach bar you attend. Midi dresses and halter neck dresses are the perfect choice for a fancy dinner when you are on summer vacay. Pair your dress with some chic shoes - opt for ballet flats if you want to dine in comfort (you are on holiday after all!) and some sparkling earrings


For When You Are Sunkissed

There is no greater feeling than being sunkissed (obviously you will still be spf’d because that is important!) but to us the definition of sunkissed is that perfect feeling after a day out at the beach or the pool, you are feeling relaxed and renewed and you're ready for a beautiful dinner in the tropics or at the beach bar. Pastel hues and printed styles are elements which make up the perfect summer dress for drinks at dusk and a game of cards at the beach bar with good pals. 


For An Aperol In Hamilton

The perfect orange slice, a nice refreshing sip and a beautiful dress to create a scene that seems to have come from heaven. To pair with? A perfect drapey cocktail dress that just oozes elegance and style but is still lightweight and breezy for a summer night. Opt for a printed dress or a wrap style dress to create a look that is perfect for a summer vacay. A jumpsuit is also a perfect option for a more dressed down dinner look.
