As we head into Summer 2020 here in Australia, the warm weather is wrapping up in the Northern Hemisphere. We Sydneysiders can count ourselves lucky because in addition to all the sunshine and beach time ahead, we get to admire and take inspiration from France's Summer fashion.
We put together some of our favourite trends of European Summer, that we're looking forward to sporting for our own season here in Sydney.
The babydoll dress
We love a loose fitting, yet chic, dress for the hot Summer days in Australia. With frills, balloon sleeves and volume, this style is versatile with a charming retro feel.
How to wear it: You can take this style from day to night; wear it everyday with flat slides or sneakers, or dress it up with wedges.
If you've shied away from fitted fabrics before, this Summer is the year to give them a try. The stretchy fabric is comfortable and can be dressed up or down.
Our Tube dress is the perfect bodycon staple. It's figure hugging but very flattering thanks to ruching around the hips and waist.
How to wear it: Dress it down with white sneakers, jazz it up with wedge espadrilles for a mediterranean look.
The padded shoulders muscle t-shirt
An edgy take on a classic, this style takes your simple jeans and tee to the next level. We love a simple look that instantly elevates an outfit.
How to wear it: Pair with your favourite jeans or denim shorts for brunch, or a pencil skirt and pumps for the office.
The trench dress
If you're looking for the perfect dress for working from home or the office, that can also be dressed down on the weekend, this is it. There's nothing more classic and sophisticated than a trench, and we love it at as a dress.
How to wear it: Pair it with heels for the office, wedges for rosé on the patio, or sneakers for Sunday lunch. This dress has lots of great options for wear.
An impossible-to-miss statement item this season are frills and ruffles. We love them for dressing up an outfit instantly, creating a flattering shape, and they come in all different designs. We can help you find the right style for you, whether it's a ruffled sleeve, shoulder, or bust.
How to wear it: A one-shouldered bodysuit with a statement ruffle, high-waisted jeans, and wedges is an extremely chic look we love. There are also lots of great tops and dresses this season with subtle or bold frills that can be dressed up or down in the warm weather.
