Style update: 10 things to add to your summer wardrobe

8th December, 2021

If I had to choose, summer would have to be one of my favourite seasons to shop for. There’s just something about the range of outfit options, from dresses, to shorts and skirts, that fires up my styling creativity and the myriad looks I can create. Every year, I tend to have a few favourites that I wear year after year, regardless of trends, but there are some new on-trend pieces that I think are definitely worth adding to your styling repertoire. I know I will be! So if you’re in the market for a few summery pieces, I’d definitely look towards…

Ribbed basics

Whether it’s a tank, tee or singlet anything ribbed is right on trend at the moment. I have stocked up on a few tanks and singlets to pair back with shorts or skirts and I’ve definitely got my money’s worth out of them. I’ve been wearing them a lot and they’ve really expanded the wear of a few existing pieces in my closet. Look for neutrals/earthy tones such as beige, tan, camel, cream and black as you’ll wear them often.

Wide leg pants

If you’ve yet to dip your toe into the wide leg pants trend, what are you waiting for? They’re unbelievably comfortable and so easy to pair back with basics such as a white tank or tee. I wear mine to the beach as a cover up, but also out and about so you can definitely get plenty of wear out of them.

Puff sleeve dress

I am all about a puff sleeve right now! The silhouette is definitely the one to watch this season and you’ll be seeing it everywhere. If you’re a little bit nervous about all that volume, don’t be! I’ve actually found a voluminous sleeve to be quite elongating and really flattering.

Chunky sandal

Much like last summer, the chunky sandal is still very much the shoe silhouette to wear. Whether it’s an “ugly” sandal a la the Chanel Dad sandal or a platform thong such as The Row’s Ginza it’s definitely all about a shoe that looks utilitarian rather than super delicate. The best bit is, you’ll be able to walk around in them all day without any complaints.

Strappy heel

Ever since the proliferation of the New Bottega strappy sandal (of which I am a huge fan!) the strappy heeled sandal/thong is definitely the one silhouette you want for summer. Wear it in a vibrant hue to add an extra zing to your look, or opt for a classic shade such as black for extra versatility. Either way, you’l definitely find plenty of occasions to wear them.

Straw bag

Summer just calls for a handbag that feels a little more resortwear than the trusty tote we’ve been carrying all year. So, I definitely recommend investing in a straw bag. It’s an easy way to update existing outfits in your closet and make them feel a little more summer, plus I love straw bags as they’re so lightweight.

Matching top and skirt

I’ve waxed lyrical about the matching top and skirt set and I still think it’s such an easy shortcut to look stylish. Opt for a ribbed set for a truly on-trend look. Plus you can wear them separately to get double the wear out of them.

Smocked dress

Whether it’s strapless, spaghetti strap or with a puff sleeve, a dress with a smocked or shirred bodice is going to be one of your failsafe looks this season. Plus I do love the fact that the stretch factor in this style makes them supremely comfortable (I highly recommend them for Christmas Day feasting time!).

One piece

I can’t get enough of one pieces, and they’re definitely my swimsuit of choice over summer. I also use them as a bodysuit which enables me to get bonus wear out of them. I’ve found this style also makes it easy to transition from beach to drinks or lunch quite easily as you can throw on something over the top such as a wide leg pant or a skirt and you’re set.

Summer trench

Given the weather we’re expecting this summer is going to be slightly cooler, it’s definitely a good idea to invest in a great lightweight trench. It’s the perfect staple to get through trans-seasonal weather and it’s so easy to throw on over a summer outfit as it works with most things, and adds a touch of polish too.

Dresses are one of my favourite go-tos, particularly in summer as they’re comfortable, perfect for hot weather and can be dressed up or down. Also they’re an easy, no-brainer kind of outfit — just pop it on and you’re done. I love them for days where I really just can’t be bothered deciding what to wear as I know I’ll look polished without having to fuss around with an outfit. The great thing about dresses is that there are so many different styles to suit every figure and occasion. Every season there are a few silhouettes to watch out for, and when it comes to summer dressing, these are the styles you should definitely have on your radar…

The puff sleeve

I adore a puff sleeve on a dress. All the volume is actually really flattering when worked back with a more fitted bodice — there’s a nice balance between the two. You could opt for a shorter sleeve or a longer one but both work equally as well. One of my fave styles is a shirred bodice with a puff sleeve which ticks the comfort box (yes, to stretchy things!) and looks dressy at the same time.

The fun mini

Minis are one of the big trends of the season and are such a great option for a casual occasion or an event that requires a bit more dressing up. I love the long sleeved dress above and feel it achieves a balanced effect with the shorter hemline of a mini. Pair a dress like this back with a beautiful slide or a low kitten heel and show off those pins!

The relaxed boho

Whether you’re heading to the beach or off on a tropical holiday the boho dress is the perfect comfy-cool dress during summer. A crisp white style is heavenly, and evokes a totally effortless vibe that is perfect for balmy days.

The cut-out

Cut-outs have been around for a few seasons and they show no sign of waning with a number of designers incorporating them into their collections. You’ll find plenty of dresses dropping in the coming weeks that will feature a peek-a-boo detail and I think it’s such as fun option for summer.

The smock dress

If you’re looking for one of the comfiest things you can wear, it has to be a smock dress! They look really sweet and all that volume works well with a great slide or sandal. Whether in a print, solid colour or a chic neutral, you’ll find there is plenty to love with this style.

The slip

The resurgence of 90s dressing is still very much a thing and you can’t get more 90s than a simple slip dress. It’s a great go-to for events, and when paired with a mini bag and a kitten heel it’s very much on trend. Also you can work it into your wardrobe in any style you choose. Black, white, printed, earthy tones… choose a hue that suits you and your style.

The shirt style

Dresses with an element of shirting to them are always in vogue. You could opt for a sleeveless version such as this one or opt for a traditional shirt dress with sleeves but either way they’re a wonderful option for summer.

The off-the-shoulder

To channel those holiday vibes into your everyday wardrobe try an off-the-shoulder dress. It’s a perfect silhouette for warm summer days and there’s something about showing off one’s decolletage that makes for a really flattering effect.

The best cover ups for looking chic at the beach

10th January, 2021

One of my favourite things to shop for when it comes to my summer wardrobe are beach cover ups. Once I’ve found the right swimsuit, I often look for just the right thing to pop on over the top that will take me straight from the sand to drinks without having to change. This is especially important when I’m on holiday as I don’t want to waste time doing multiple outfit changes when there’s fun to be had. Am I right?

The great thing about cover ups now is that they can range from ultra casual to super glam and everything in between, meaning there’s one to suit every style or occasion, and even swimsuit. From dresses, to kaftans, jumpsuits and sarongs, the options are virtually endless. And to help get you started, I’ve rounded up a few stylish options to help you leave your mark at the beach this summer.

Style update: 10 things to add to your summer wardrobe

2nd December, 2020
A crisp white dress is a must this summer

Summer is officially here! The onset of warmer days means it’s time to embrace all the things I love about dressing for summer: linen, floaty dresses, comfy sandals and simple accessories. I always end up collecting bits and pieces for my summer wardrobe throughout the year, but I do always have a hit list in mind of key things I’ll need to update existing looks. Here’s what I think should be on most women’s shopping lists this season.

Statement linen

Gone are the days of linen being quite plain and simple. There are some really gorgeous statement pieces around from the likes of Aje, Joslin Studio and Posse with elevated detailing and intricate styles. I’m a fan of floaty linen dress with a feature element or details such as shirring. Plus, it’s ultra breathable meaning it’s perfect for warm summer days.

Crisp white dress

If you’re going to invest in one thing to take you through everything from a summer BBQ to a long lunch with the girls then definitely make it a white dress. A crisp white dress is easily dressed up or down and can be paired with virtually any kind of shoe or accessory, so it’s ultra versatile.

The denim skirt that’s destined for many an outfit this summer

Denim skirt

If you want something that’s on-trend, comfy and wearable then it has to be a great denim skirt. This simple A-line style is taken up a notch with the statement buttons. I’ve worn this skirt with a button-down shirt to a singlet and plain white tee, so I can assure you you’ll get plenty of mileage out of one.

Ribbed/knit tanks

Invest in a few different colours as a ribbed tank is the polished staple that will dress up your favourite skirt or pair of shorts. There’s plenty of affordable options around now so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Voluminous neutral maxi

Plenty of Aussie brands are doing their own version of a flowy maxi, with Matteau being at the top of the list. Choose a plain, neutral hue and you will be able to roll it out for so many occasions the cost per wear will be virtually zero.

Minimalist sandals

I love the look of barely there sandals with the most delicate of straps. Whether you go for the heels or flats iteration, there’s no doubt that it adds a touch of elegance to any outfit.

Comfy shoes? Absolutely!

Comfy sandals

The great thing about footwear trends this summer is that comfy is in. From the two-strap sandals that Chanel made famous, to Teva-esque hiking sandals, this season there’s nothing fussy or complicated when it comes to shoes. It’s all about being comfortable.

A great one-piece

A black one-piece is a standard in my wardrobe because I can wear it to the beach and straight to lunch afterwards simply by throwing on a pair of linen pants or a great skirt. Choose a simple, plain silhouette if you want to ensure versatility, but if you’re less concerned about function and just want to make a splash, there are loads of statement one-pieces around right now.

Simple, sleep sunnies are my go-to right now

Sleek sunglasses

I always have a pair of sunnies on hand wherever I go, and this summer, I am loving the simplicity of a pair of RayBans. This style goes with everything and it’s a fresh take on the chunkier acetate styles we’re so used to seeing.

Woven bag

Basket bags are still very much a thing this summer. Whether you opt for something small and delicate, or roomy enough to carry all your beach essentials, there’s definitely something to be said about embracing a natural approach to accessories during the warmer months.

Lightweight linen pieces to update your summer wardrobe

30th October, 2020

If there’s one thing that should be front and centre in your summer wardrobe it’s anything and everything linen. The lightweight, breathable fabric is about as perfect as you can get for dealing with balmy, summer days. And the added bonus is, it looks effortless and chic which is a major plus when dealing with soaring temperatures which can leave you feeling hot and bothered.

Given the prevalence of linen in most brands’ collections this season, the only difficult part is trying to decide how you’re going to embrace it. Will it be via a flowy slip dress? Crisp and classic linen pants? Perhaps a tailored white top that will accompany any summer look effortlessly? To help get you started I’ve rounded up a few pieces that will kickstart your love affair with linen. Be prepared though, once you wear it, you’ll definitely be a repeat customer.

Wide leg pants in that so-perfect-for-summer oatmeal shade should be high on your wish list. These pants can be worn dressed up with a cami or thrown on over your swimmers to take you straight to after beach drinks.

With its classic shape, you’re guaranteed to get plenty of wear out of this top. Wear it back with denim for that perfect balance of smart casual or team it with a skirt for an outfit with a soft, feminine vibe.

A loose, flowy top like this is made for warm days. Pop it on over pants or shorts and it instantly gives it a slightly dressier feel.

The colour is striking but the simply, understated slip dress will be something that blends seamlessly into your summer wardrobe. Worn back with sneakers for a day of running around, or slides for a long lunch, you’ll get plenty of wear out of this piece.

These tailored shorts are just the perfect crisp white shade to take you through summer. The best bit is you’ll be able to pair it with so many different pieces, and easily dress it up or down.

If there’s a puff sleeve involved I’m there. It’s one of my favourite trends this spring/summer, and this crop with its sweet floral print and shirring is the ideal way to lift any outfit.

A simple staple that you’ll wear non-stop this summer is a midi skirt. In white, it’s just made for enjoying afternoon drinks, barefoot whilst soaking up the sun.

Blazers should be a constant in any wardrobe simply because it’s such an easy way to dress up an outfit with minimal effort. While some jackets might feel a little heavy in summer, a linen version is the perfect way to wear one when it’s warm out.

Apart from the fact this dusty rose shade is perfection, the classic shape of these shorts is the ideal way to this summer staple in a more polished way. Team it with a white tee and sneakers or slides and you’re set.

Linen doesn’t always mean neutrals, you can also go for truly beautiful pastels or vibrant shades. This baby pink skirt is just the kind of thing to wear when you’re wanting something a little more playful and fun.

If you’re a forever fan of sleek black pieces then these wide leg linen pants are about to become your new best friend in summer. Worn with bold colours, prints or simple neutrals, bookmark this piece to be on high rotation.

How cute is this linen jumpsuit? The shirring and the puff sleeves combo is always a winner and such a chic way to do linen this summer.

It’s summer so why not wholeheartedly embrace vivid colours? The turmeric shade of this dress is just the right amount of drama to truly lift any ensemble while the finer details such as the puff sleeves, crossover bodice and sweetheart neckline are the perfect full stop to this dress.

What I Wore: Resort Chic

16th July, 2019

One of my favourite things about going on a tropical getaway is putting together my holiday wardrobe. Resort wear is without a doubt one of my favourite styles to work with because I love the relaxed nature of it. And living in Australia, I think we do these styles beautifully.

I think one of the biggest musts of resort chic is a gorgeous summer dress. I tend to gravitate towards midi styles and am really embracing prints. Florals are always a winner as they evoke an understated elegance, but I think warm, balmy days are also a dream pairing with crisp white frocks. If you only pack two styles with you on holiday, make it those two.

Whilst dresses are easily dressed up or down with the right shoes and accessories, I’m also a fan of packing great separates. If done in a considered way, you could pack a handful of separate pieces and create several looks. I always love to pack a pair of high waisted shorts (white is always a beautiful option for a beachy vacation) because I know that I can wear them to the pool and out to lunch and all the way to dinner if I so desired. I’m also really into crop tops worn with a higher waist and paired with natural textures such as a straw hat or a wicker bag. Simple, understated and elegant — you can’t really go wrong with that approach.

Style update: 10 things to add to your summer wardrobe

8th January, 2019

Whilst I do like to top up my summer wardrobe with a few great trend buys I always like to start with a solid foundation. This means having the key pieces that I know I’ll be using throughout the season on hand so I make pulling outfits together a whole lot easier. Whilst this list might differ slightly according to your own tastes and style, I do think the majority of what I’ve included will be the same for the majority of women. So if you’ve found it hard to find a decent outfit the last few weeks, it might be time to stock up and ensure that you’ve got all the right pieces for the perfect look.

1. A versatile lightweight dress

I’ve all for having at least one summer dress that you’re absolutely in love with as a go-to throughout the season. Whether it’s a wrap style, shirt or slip dress there are a plethora of silhouettes available to suit everyone. The great thing about dresses is that they require minimal styling—just add shoes and you’re pretty much done.

2. A neutral sandal or slide

Speaking of shoes it’s a good idea to have one trusty pair of sandals or slides in your wardrobe. If you get one in a neutral colour such as tan or black then you’ll be able to mix and match it with several different outfits. Keep it simple and you’ll be able to maximise how much use you get out of it.

3. A straw bag

If you’re going for one bag in summer make it of the straw variety. I like a small straw bag that I can use for going out but you can invest in one that’s slightly roomier to carry your essentials for a day of shopping or hanging at the beach. If you work in a relaxed office environment you could even take it to work.

4. Lightweight pants

I took a pair of colourful printed pants on my recent trip to Hawaii and got so much use of of them that I’d highly recommend everyone to consider adding a pair of summer pants to their style repertoire. I went for a bold print but you could opt for a classic white or navy for something that’s got plenty of versatility.

5. Classic sunglasses

I am a sunglasses person through and through so I’ve got a collection of frames I rotate. However if you prefer just having one trusty pair you can wear to death then choose one in black or tortoiseshell to ensure you get plenty of use out of them.

6. A quality swimsuit

A great swimsuit is a must living in Australia. I am particularly drawn to a classic one piece style at the moment in shades such as black, navy or khaki to ensure that I can wear it on multiple occasions. Be sure to try on a few different style to make sure you find the one that’s flattering to your shape.

7. A white tee

I couldn’t live without a white tee, especially in summer. I’ll often pair it with everything from a skirt to denim shorts and pants. It’s ultra wearable so stock up!

8. Anything in linen

Who else is in love with all things linen? Nothing screams resortwear more than a gorgeous lightweight linen number. Whether it’s a dress, a skirt or a pair of cute shorts, it’s definitely the fabric of choice this season.

9. A statement skirt

I generally love a statement skirt most days of the year but they’re especially great in summer. Whether it’s a wrap skirt, mini or a sleek midi, find a style with a standout print or colour and you’re guaranteed to wear it to death this season.

10. Statement earrings

There’s no better time to have fun with your accessories than summer. If you’re going to invest in one particular piece I’d highly recommend a pair of statement earrings. You could wear them to drinks with the girls, date night or a work function so you’re definitely going to maximise the cost per wear.

My tips for party dressing

12th December, 2018

If the party invitations have started rolling in and you’re facing a schedule full of gatherings in the lead up to Christmas then it can be a little overwhelming trying to figure out what to wear to every single event. Here’s how to avoid any wardrobe dilemmas this festive season.

Find something that can transition easily 

If you’ve got a day time and night time event it can get pretty pricey having to buy an outfit for both. So you need to ensure that you find something that can easily take you from lunch during the day to party in the evening. Think a kaftan or a beautiful dress that you can wear with sandals then make slightly dressier by changing into high heels later on.

Think bright 

Bold colours are always a winner during summer so look for anything in a bright hue that you can really have fun with. Don’t be afraid to make a statement, especially when it comes to party attire.

…or summer whites 

White is so fresh during this time of year especially when you have a bit of golden glow courtesy of a spray or fake tan. A beautiful floaty white summer dress or a great skirt in a neutral hue are a great way to really embody the carefree, relaxed vibe of the season.

A great bag or jewellery can really lift a party outfit

Add accessories 

You can always use existing items in your wardrobe whilst navigating the party circuit but simply dress them up or down with the right accessories. Try a bold pair of shoulder grazing earrings to dial up the drama or add a statement necklace to turn your look into something more striking. It’s an easy – and less expensive – way to wear things you already own but still make the outfit feel new.

Treat yourself to a mani/pedi

One of my shortcuts to looking polished is a manicure and pedicure. I swear by it. Having a pop of colour on my toes and fingernails can elevate an ordinary look into something special. A fresh mani/pedi just adds a touch of polish (no pun intended!) to a look and helps to finish it off.

Have a great pair of party shoes

If you’ve got plenty of dresses that you’ve worn before it can be easy to become bored of them. The key to injecting some new life into them is the addition of a standout item like a pair of statement shoes. Invest in a single pair at the start of party season and you’ll be able to wear them to multiple occasions and make old outfits feel new again.

5 pieces that your summer wardrobe definitely needs

17th January, 2018

We’re halfway through summer already and it’s at this point when your current season wardrobe can sometimes start to feel tired. The novelty of pulling out your warm weather clothes and rediscovering them again has worn off and you may feel the urge to buy something new to refresh you current looks. If you’re planning on indulging in a little retail therapy it’s a great idea to opt for pieces that you can get plenty of wear out of and can be transformed into several different ensembles. If you want to ensure you get maximum cost per wear, these five things definitely offer longevity and versatility.

The cold shoulder dress

The cold shoulder silhouette has cemented its place as one of the key trends of the season so it’s a great style to opt for when it comes to dresses. Grab one in a crisp white and you’ll definitely get plenty of wear out of it.

My pick: This Paxos number incorporates a few dramatic touches such as ruffles and bell sleeves, making it a standout piece.

High waisted denim skirt

A denim skirt should have a permanent place in your summer wardrobe simply because of its sheer versatility. Tees, singlets, button downs… the list of its possible pairings is lengthy.

My pick: Camilla and Marc’s high waisted skirt is just the right shade of blue and its raw hem gives it a little edge.

The black swimsuit

When it comes to swimwear I always go for neutrals and no prints as I find I always get more wear out them that way. A plain black swimsuit or bikini is a must but look for interesting finishing touches to inject a little personality.

My pick: Marysia do gorgeous styles in plain bold colours that more than stand out in a crowd. This top and bottom can be mixed with other pieces in the range if you want to change things up but they work so beautifully together that you’re guaranteed to have them on high rotation.

The colourful slides

Slides are the footwear of choice this season so why not have some fun with them? Look for bright colours, textured finishes and embellishments.

My pick: A bold colourway keeps these Sol Sana slides looking fresh whilst the wavy straps are a playful touch.

The statement sunglasses

Sunglasses can really make an outfit so find a pair that can still work back with the rest of your wardrobe but have standout elements such as coloured lenses, unique frames or fun finishes.

My pick: These Chloe sunglasses are a great stepping stone into embracing statement glasses. They’re unique without being too over the top.

What’s on my shopping wish list this month 

12th January, 2018

At the start of a new year I like to take stock of my closet and strategise what new additions I might make. Usually I’ll look at what’s currently on trend along with any gaps I have in my wardrobe and pinpoint a few things to purchase from there. Shopping for summer is always fun as the relaxed vibe of the season means it’s a good opportunity to invest in some bold and playful pieces along with standout accessories. Here’s what I have my eye on this month…

Valentino Free Rockstud Leather slides

Valentino’s Rockstud heels and flats are a signature style of the brand and now they’re taking it into summer footwear territory with these slides. The navy and white colour combination feels perfect for this time of year and the studs are an edgy touch.

Cult Gaia Luna acrylic shoulder bag

Circular bags are a huge trend and this one looks like a work of art that you can carry on your shoulder. The beaded strap is able to be detached allowing for plenty of versatility.

Jerome Dreyfus Hector leather tote

This one stood out to me because of its departure from the shape of a traditional tote. The round style looks modern whilst its beautiful tan colour makes it a versatile classic.

Zimmermann Lumino asymmetric linen midi dress

Linen dresses are a welcome trend this season due to their relaxed vibe and the added bonus that they require minimal effort on the ironing front. The sunny yellow of this Zimmermann frock caught my eye as it’s so perfect right now. Bold stripes and sweet ruffled details meet to great effect, making for a great go-to dress.

MDS striped cotton jersey top

This top is quite high on the adorable scale with its tie straps and gathered finish. Perfect with everything from a denim skirt to tailored shorts, it’s made for enjoying sunny days.

MDS striped cotton jersey wide leg pants 

I couldn’t resist the matching pants to the above top! How cute do they look as a set?

Sam Edelman Rumi Dupion slippers 

Simple pointed flats at a reasonable price—what’s not to love? They’re also a great colour that will really work back with a huge chunk of my wardrobe.

Freda Banana Tara faux-pearl embellished glasses

Statement sunglasses are the ideal accessory to lift an outfit and this pair, with its faux-pearl embellishment really makes for a fun addition to any look.

Milana twisted paper medium brim

I’m a firm believer in staying safe in the sun and this hat fits the bill. As a bonus they’re also on sale.

Annie Costello Brown gold halle earrings

I can envisage these architectural earrings making a stylish addition to myriad outfits and they’ll definitely be able to transition into next season, allowing me to get maximum cost per wear.

C&M Camilla and Marc Montaine dress

Breezy dresses are one of my favourite things during the warmer months and this mini dress with its tie detail will most certainly get more than a few outings for the remainder of the season.

What’s on your shopping list this month?
