Travel Fashion Time: The Best Summer Outfits!
One month on the road in Australia and I am totally in love with Australian and South East Asian Designers. The stores are full of local designer’s best summer outfits. Not too different from Scandinavian travel fashion in terms of the simplistic style and the color palette but with an extra twist. A bit more romantic, a bit more boho, well a bit more me:)! I wish my suitcase was empty when I came here….
Still, I had to do some shopping, right? A girl got to do what a girl got to do…. So here comes some of my new favorite Australian brands for the best travel fashion but also some inspiration for the best summer outfits for your upcoming trip to the sun! Enjoy!
1. The Perfect Swimsuit
I love that swimsuits have become so popular lately. A great alternative to the bikini that has been part of my travel fashion wardrobe for so long. Still, I have never found any that fits me perfectly and thus none has been part of my best summer outfits. However, in Manly beach in the absolutely gorgeous This & That Boutique, there it was. Red checkered beauty and with the perfect cut from Slide Show. Check out their page as there are lots of nice things there that would suit the best summer outfits!
Since then I have used it not only at the beach but as a top for hot days together with a pair of jeans shorts or my pink jeans skirt from HM – also bought during this trip!
2. The Cute Hat & Colorful Bandanas
Having severe problems with pigmentation, I have become a hat girl. Being in the world down under a good sun hat is a must of my travel fashion collection and best summer outfits. However, finding a chic one in good quality is not easy. Luckily, we found a street design market just outside our gorgeous boutique hotel, the Harbour Roks Hotel, the first day in Sydney. In one of the stands I found my new favorite straw hat from Johny Who. Chic and in great quality. Love street market shopping!
This trip was the trip when the bandanas became a key part of my travel fashion collection and best summer outfits. Some days you are not up for a hat or to some outfits it just does not fit. That is when the two beautiful scarfs from Bangkok Treasure that I found in my favorite Bangkok mall Siam Centre comes into use. Love the pattern and colors and they fit perfectly to my best summer outfits!
What do you say? Do I look like a pirate or what?
3. The Boho Chic Top
This year’s best summer outfits and travel fashion is all about short tops but I am not as daring to go the full way yet. Need some more hours in the gym but found a perfect boho chic top from Thanne. Perfect for the lavender fields (below Bridestowe, Tasmania) with my skirt from Toteme or to a pair of jeans shorts to the beach!
4. The Cute Summer Dress
Every beach vacay and best summer outfits and travel fashion needs a summer dress. Do you see a trend? Yes, got a bit hooked on checkered pattern but this pink dress from Ava was just calling buy me so I had to:)!
5. The New Must Have in My Wardrobe – The Romper
I was a bit late on the romper and jumpsuit fashion but better late than never. Now I have fallen heads over heels for them and have a couple at home that are part of my travel fashion collection and best summer outfits! This one is not from an Australia designer but I bought it on line before this trip at Chickaberry.
It is as perfect for a day in Sydney as in Bondi, or well anywhere:)! Chickaberry has a wide assortment of rompers and jumpsuits so have a look and if you go for some shopping use my code LINDAV15 for 15% discount!
6. Warmer & Colder Days in the City
So this trip has truly had it all! From mountain treks in New Zealand to beach days in Bondi and Byron but also several city days in Sydney, Hobart and Melbourne. I can assure you it was not easy to pack for this trip…!
For colder days, I still go pink for my travel collection and best summer outfits! At least when it is shooting time and the surrounding is full of small pink bathing boxes like in Brighton, Melbourne! My newly bought jeans from HM together with one of my favorite off shoulders from a small designer boutique in Moscow has been one of my best summer outfits for colder days this trip!
7. Cozy & Comfy yet Stylish Days…. Anywhere!
I found this piece of travel fashion gem a year ago or so and I have loved it ever since. The top and skirt from Toteme have been my favorite travel fashion pieces and been part of the best summer outfits collection.
They can be used in so many combinations for your travel fashion style like shown above with a boho chic top or a jeans skirt or shorts but also like here together. They are so comfortable and yet they look great. Perfect for a road trip day, a slow day at your resort but also for a night out when you are in that mood! One of the best summer outfits for sure!
8. A Touch of Yellow
Those of you that are following my journey and have read my previous fashion posts, know that a new color made an entry to my wardrobe this summer. So for the travel fashion for this trip, I had to bring a piece of yellow with me.
This long skirt is also a memory of mine from Moscow from the local designer brand I am Studio. A clear candidate for the best summer outfits as you can wear it in the city, to the beach or like here, during our Great Ocean Road road trip. Comfy and chic!
