The style edit – Happy holidays
‘Tis the season to pack your beach bag and head towards the ocean. If you plan on a Sunshine Coast staycation (and why wouldn’t you?) or are jet setting to a tropical destination, then I’ve got just what you need to start packing! Here are my go-to essentials for the summer holidays.
It wouldn’t be summer without a bikini in tow, right? My advice is spend a little more to get quality swimwear, as finding the right fabric and fit makes a huge difference to your poolside confidence. There are some seriously stylish one piece options available too – so stylish in fact, they can double as a top.
Tilly Print One Piece, RRP $149.95, witchery.com.au
Protect yourself from the sun with a straw hat. Go glam with a wide brim floppy style, keep it cool with the boater straw option, or get resort ready with a classic fedora. Being sunsmart never looked so good.
Riviera Wide Brim Boater Hat, RRP $29.95, sportsgirl.com.au
A basic tee will be your easy and effortless summer wardrobe go-to. Black, white and grey t-shirts will pair perfectly with your denim shorts and summer skirts. It’s best to invest in quality pieces, but there are some great cheaper alternatives that will do the trick.
Broderie Bind Linen T-Shirt, RRP $79.95, countryroad.com.au
Hot summer days mean keeping cool in comfortable flats. A strappy pair of flat sandals can effortlessly take your denim shorts from a latte-sipping-brunch, straight to the beach. Find a pair you love and you will wear them over and over again.
