While summer fashion is lovely and fun - choosing the wrong outfit can make your summer day uncomfortable and tiring. Comfortable and loose-fitting clothes screams perfection for a summer day, no matter what occasion.

A jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are one of the easiest and simplest outfits you can wear for summer, and with evening jumpsuits in Australia coming in a wide range of styles, there’s sure to be some that suit your aesthetic. What’s great about wearing a jumpsuit, other than the convenience, is that you can play around with it by either dressing it up, or dressing it down. A perfect style of jumpsuit for your summer day/evening, are wide-leg jumpsuits. These allow you to feel free and glamorous, without feeling uncomfortable.


During scorching heat, you would want to have the hassle of putting as limited amount of clothes as you can. Opting for an open-back look will cool you down significantly. Let’s be honest… no one likes a sweaty back. There are various open-back styles of summery dresses or tops. If your going for an open-back top - choosing a bottom half is completely flexible. Pants, skirts, and shorts are all lovely.


The best thing about crop-tops, is not the fact that they are great refreshing summer, option-but they literally can go with any type of bottoms you select. Probably go for a strapless crop, if you like that style that is. You want to minimise the number of straps (including bra strap) as much as possible because:

1. They are annoying enough, let alone in the heat.

2: You don’t really want tan lines, do you?


A bright coloured or floral maxi call out a fun, summer day. Going shopping, for a coffee or to the beach? Match your maxi with a beautiful pair of slip-on sandals or flip-flops. For a bohemian look - add a cute headband or a floppy hat. Keep your makeup simple bright, think bright lips ladies!

The same guidelines apply for a maxi skirt too. Maxi skirts provide the same amount of comfort on a hot summer day- but with a perk for having freedom with choosing your own top. This option is perfect if you want to mix and match or if your just a fussy person and not feeling some of the maxi dress options you are seeing.

High-Waisted Shorts

Shorts are smart for reducing those annoying summer sweats (as long as they aren’t tight though). Style your high-waisted shorts with the colour that you choose with a pain tank top to tuck in, a crop or tie-front top. If you’re going to the beach, you could also wear these with your cute bikini top, making stripping down to your full bikini set super easy.


Whether you prefer your swimwear to be one or two-piece, both styles are catered to individual needs and body types. To look flawless in your swimwear in your own unique way, you want to feel as comfortable as you can. Figure out what type of body shape you have, to determine the style of swimwear that you should go for. Example string bikinis make your hips look thinner or if your looking for the illusion of having for curves - opt for ruffled bottoms.


Summer fashion has an extensive amount of options - but this guide gives you a brief idea of some smart options, that considers your comfort. Just because your fashion is comfortable, doesn’t mean it can’t be glamorous! If anything, feeling confident and at ease in your favourite outfit, is even more glamorous to the outside eyes!
