7 Pieces Every Sydney Girl Will Wear This Summer

Summer in Sydney means Bondi to Bronte coastal walks, surfing at Cronulla’s Greenhills and afternoon drinks in Manly. The constant? A beach-side, active lifestyle and a specific style that remains casual and relaxed, yet always pulled together.

The easiest way to get through summer is to be armed with pieces that’ll have you sorted from the sand to the bar and beyond. That means easy-to-wear mini dresses, elevated footwear and the It accessories of the season. Keep scrolling for our list of the seven pieces every Sydney girl should own this summer.

We can't think of an occasion where this breezy black mini dress wouldn't be appropriate. Throw it over your bikini on the beach, or doll it up with a sheer blouse underneath.

These old Celine necklaces started quite the trend. You won't be able to go anywhere in Sydney this summer without seeing a fellow fashion girl wearing a gold initial necklace.

If you don't already have a pair, where have you been? The cat-eye shape and tortoise-shell print are trending in the sunglasses department this year.

sleeved white DRESS

A billowing cotton dress is a must-have for summer. The lightweight fabric will keep you cool, and the sleeves will save you from sunburn. Win, win.

plain BIKINI

Bikinis in plain colours like red or black are back this summer. Opt for a traditional cut like a triangle to keep it simple.
