With Australian summer comes brand new fashion and trends. Heres some of the top trends, styles and books everyone is talking about you need for the warmer months.

Summer Fashion

A Cotton Or Linen Scarf

A lightweight scarf is extremely versatile. Keep one in your bag this summer to go from the beach to dinner in no time!
Check out these fun ways to switch up your style with a scarf this summer:
Bag Decoration: Add a pop of colour to your bag by threading a brightly coloured scarf through the handle of your bag. Knot the scar to stop it slipping and let it hang down for a fresh summer twist.
Sarong: Knot your scarf at your waist for a fashionable sarong—perfect for lounging by the pool. It also doubles as a towel to lay on the sand or a beach chair.
Head Scarf: Going from the beach to hang with your friends but don’t have time to style your hair? Simply tie your scarf around your head, like the picture above, and embrace your new boho chic look!
Traditional Scarf: A summary scarf is the perfect accessory for those casual summer outfits. It’s also perfect to drape around your shoulders when the temperature drops after dusk.

Summer Beauty

Make-Up Setting Spray

Summer Makeup
Do you find in the warmer months that your make-up just doesn’t last? A setting spray will help fix this problem, plus act as a cooling refresher on those humid summer days.
How to use:

  1. Cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin.
  2. Apply a small layer of primer best suited for your skin type.
  3. As normal, apply your make-up.
  4. Before you put on your mascara, spray the setting spray about 30cm from your face in a light mist.
  5. To freshen up your look, spray again when needed in the afternoon.

We recommend Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater, Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Make-Up Setting Spray and MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+.
