Spring’s just about gone, and summer is finally here! As the days get warmer and longer, and the kids get more excited for school being let out, you might have had a quick look in your wardrobe and been a little worried about what you saw. If your wardrobe needs and urgent refresh before we hit the peak of summer, here are some simple pointers for building your summer wardrobe.
Restock on Denim Shorts
There’s no way around it – denim shorts are going to be a staple of your summer wear this year. Make sure you love every single pair in your wardrobe by going through it and tossing all the ones you haven’t worn in a while, then restocking on a few that will keep you smiling all summer long!
Have Something Cozy
Although it’s definitely getting warmer, we’ve still got a few rainy and chilly days ahead of us, especially if you happen to live in the north of the country. You don’t want to be stuck with an outfit for a beach party when that chilly weather decides to give you a nasty surprise, or have to lean on a worn-out cardigan. Prepare yourself by checking out a knitwear range from a label you’re into, and getting yourself a nice, cozy jumper or cardigan you can fall back on if you need it.
Update your Weekend Dresses
There’s nothing quite as convenient as having a few go-to dresses on hand whenever you need them. Summer tends to stir up a lot of spontaneous social events, so you should be going for dresses that you can style up or down at a moment’s notice, yet still give off that warm, festive summer vibe.
Invest in Some Shareable Shoes

Having shoes that are so cute you can’t help but post them on social media is always a good thing. Shoes that make a statement and let your feet breathe a little are also a massive time-saver. Instead of screwing around with different combinations of accessories, just slip into some eye-catching shoes to liven up an outfit that feels a little too simple. You’ll be able to look insanely stylish, without putting in too much effort.
Ditch your Purse for a Tasteful Basket Bag
Most of us have been lugging around oversized black totes all through the winter. If you’re as sick of them as the rest of us, try lightening your look with a fresh straw basket bag. You’re going to be seeing these pop up in stores more as we get further and further into the season. They’re a great way to add a joyful, tasteful accent to your whole look.
Get an Australian Swimsuit
With their huge beach culture, it’s no wonder Australia is the coolest country in the world to buy your next swimsuit from. There are countless brands shipping out some of the most comfortable and sleek swimwear you can find anywhere. If you want to make a splash in more than one way at the beach, shop Aussie!
