The weather is getting warmer and good times are coming, days by the beach and nights on the town - summer is here. An Australian summer is like no other - great weather, stunning coastlines, barbeques with friends and holidays with family. When it comes to a summer wardrobe ensuring you look as good as you feel can be overwhelming. Here we have compiled a guide with our top tips to help you nail the dress code to stay stylish this summer.
Lighter shades go hand in hand with warmer weather, a visual embodiment of our spirits in the sunshine, think ivory, nudes and pinks. A lighter coloured fabric can serve you in both fashion and function, as heat doesn't absorb into lighter colours the same way as dark shades. Light coloured fabric keeps you cooler and suits a more neutral colour pallet, but don't overlook the impact of a vibrant colour. Highly saturated hues are a fantastic way to turn up the heat on your look. Think oranges, hot pinks and vibrant greens, adding pops of colour to your wardrobe is a fun way to embrace confidence and enjoy the deeper shades of summer.
Fabrics & Function
When choosing a summer piece, it's a good idea to keep fabric in mind. Each fabric will impact a dress differently, it's important to understand the basics to ensure you’re comfortable and confident. A fitted or thick fabric can aid in giving you shape, and showing off your silhouette, but is also prone to absorbing sweat and trapping heat. Thick or tight fabrics tend to be better suited for night time events, for a day time event we recommend loose and flowy fabrics. These styles compliment a summer style while keeping you cool and comfortable.
Less Is More
Let your dress do the talking - accessories should complement not overshadow. Keeping your jewellery, bags and accessories simple is a great way to achieve an elegant look while maintaining your comfort levels. When the weather is warm, statement accessories can quickly turn into a hindrance by causing discomfort. Pair your accessories to complement your outfit, think plain gown with a statement headpiece or a vibrant dress with simple silver jewellery.
