Camilla and Marc
Thanks to its dreamy print, Camilla and Marc’s “Ruby Lane” dress is a trans-seasonal wardrobe addition that will take you to many an event in style. A pleated maxi skirt naturally sounds like it would suit mum or grandma, but Camilla and Marc keep things sexy with a halter neckline and low back. All you need is a stacked heel and fresh tan to take this dreamy dress to the next level. If you prefer a shorter take, that’s available too!
Resortwear and Zimmermann go hand in hand, and we all know how this label is the champion of luxe swimwear in Australia, so justifying your larger-than-normal spend on a swimsuit is so much easier when it looks like this. The ultimate go-to for beach-to-bar dressing, this one piece will be unrivalled wherever it’s worn, just add strappy sandals, low-slung bottoms or a high-waisted open skirt to show off the piece’s lace trim.
As the local purveyor of sports-luxe, Josh Goot continues to deliver good sartorial styles to his loyal devotees. This skirt’s layered panels and Japanese-influenced relaxed tailoring is no exception, practically shouting summer with the clean, fresh contrast of white and forest green. If you prefer a darker look for an evening take, choose the inverted colours option.
This TOME rose wrap top (right) encapsulates two major trends going from strength to strength in recent seasons: stripes and belted waists. Effectively a classic in its own design, the versatility and wearability of this piece is seemingly endless, taking you from the office to sophisticated play in no time.
With Dion Lee always producing sexy yet sophisticated designs for the modern woman, investing in any piece from this home-grown designer is worth it in our eyes, and this dress is a perfect choice for the daring woman who wants to make a stylish statement. You’ll have to be quick, though, because sizes are flying off the shelves.
