Ditch the Cut-Offs and Face Paint this Australia Day Weekend

Australia Day has more than a few things in common with Halloween. On both holidays there is an increasing need to reconcile dressing in costume with dressing sexy, and while actual clothing is usually kept to a minimum, the rest is all about excess. However, you can still get into the spirit of Straya Day even if you do reject the traditional costume of cut-off denim shorts, a flag-printed beer holder cap and poorly applied face paint. Hit the beach or bar in local labels and breezy summer staples for a day that’s both fun and classy.
