What To Wear To Summer Events

For the Holiday Season: Separates & Two-Piece Sets

December is filled with work Christmas parties, end-of-year get-togethers, and Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations. Whether you’re combining a top and pants, top and shorts, or a top and skirt, there’s nothing more festive than a two-piece set. Co-ord outfits are perfect for special occasions as they’re instantly chic and make a statement. They’re also the perfect wardrobe addition all year round; wear the pieces together or separately for endless options to mix and match with other blouses, pants and shorts, and skirts.

For Picnics & BBQs: Bright bottoms

Picnics and BBQs are great for catching up with family and friends while taking advantage of the warm weather. Casual, low-key get-togethers are especially great for experimenting with colour. Pants and shorts in vibrant hues can help you incorporate fresh, summer elements into your wardrobe; try silhouettes you’d usually wear, but in a different colour. Bright bottoms are a great way to elevate any basic summer outfit; just pair them with a plain tee and sandals, and you’re ready to head out the door. Choose wide or relaxed fits and lightweight fabrics like poplin and linen to stay comfortable all day long.

For Semi-Formal Festivities: Midi Dresses

During summer, you’re likely to have a few special occasions sprinkled between your social calendars, such as garden and engagement parties, weddings, or bridal and baby showers. Midi dresses are great options as they come in various styles and prints to match any occasion. Plus, you can dress them up or down; pair them with heels and dainty jewellery for a formal, feminine look, or tone them down with casual sneakers or sandals. Midi dresses are effortlessly elegant, and having only one layer to slip on will help you stay sweat-free and picture-perfect throughout the day.

For Sporting Events: Linen Blouses

Summer sports are an Australian ritual, with thousands of fans flocking to tennis and cricket matches each January. Linen blouses are lightweight and breathable, perfect for afternoons sitting outdoors in stadiums. White linen shirts provide that clean, sporty aesthetic while helping to reflect heat when temperatures peak. The airy fabric offers a relaxed look, while textures and frills keep it visually interesting. Style with linen pants or shorts to beat the heat, and don’t forget sunglasses and a hat.
