Between the heady smell of jasmine, the relentless rays, and the climbing temperatures, you know summer is here (hallelujah!). The first item on our agenda? Get our wardrobe warm-weather ready, followed closely by organising afternoon drinks in Bondi.
So, with that in mind, I present to you what what eight of our editors have their eyes on, from the perfect LBB (little black bikini) to the coolest (and possibly most flattering) party dress. And hopefully, this edit will inspire your own shopping lists for the season ahead.
I have a confession. I’m a swimwear addict. I have more bikinis and one pieces than I do underwear. I struggle to part with them and yet, when summer rolls around, I always buy new pairs. This year, I have my eye on the Matteau Petit Brief and Crop Top. It’s skimpy in the bum and small in the breast, perfect for those who are less well endowed…like me.
I’m obsessed with all things marble and rose gold and I’m always on the lookout for the perfect pair of sunglasses. So naturally, these sunnies from AM Eyewear are right at the top of my wish list this summer! Not only will they protect my eyes from the harsh UV rays, they’ll go perfectly with pretty much every summer outfit. Win!
Can you ever own enough jumpsuits? Honestly, I don’t think so. This particular version is from one of my favorite, super-affordable fashion brands, C/meo Collective—so I feel zero guilt about actually buying it. I’ll wear it on my next beach holiday to dinner with strappy sandals, and then take it back to the city with white sneakers and a black zip-top clutch from Mon Purse or The Daily Edited.
Even if can’t cool off by an actual beach this summer, Uniqfind’s tropical-inspired Palm Beach Macbook Skin and iPhone Case will make me feel like I totally am. Considering I spend a good chunk of my life on my laptop and phone, this is a huge plus.
I’ve never met a pair earrings I didn’t like. And, this season I’m lusting over Natasha Schweitzer’s Odette earrings. Handcrafted from 14k Gold Plated Sterling Silver, this minimal yet statement-making style will work with everything from dresses to denim. Santa, are you listening?
I’m obsessed with Reformation because it’s a sustainable, eco-friendly brand … and also because they make incredible clothes. I’ll be living in this dress through holiday party season and when I go on vacay—it’s totally flattering and super sexy.
These The Rocks Push boardies are cut for a casual fit, perfect for those days going from the beach to the bar. They even come with a waterproof wallet that fits into the back pocket. Rest assured, I’ll be wearing these all summer long.
