I swear it was only yesterday that I was putting the winter woolies away, and dusting off the shorts, t-shirts and beach wear (well not quite, but I was prepping for summer!). Now it’s only less than a week until the first day of summer, which means we will soon be graced with much warmer weather, much longer evenings and the much anticipated silly season!
By living in Canberra, we are used to throwing on the layers and stacking on as many coats and scarves as we can! I think it is safe to say Canberrans are well trained at dressing for the cooler weather – it’s in our blood. However, when the warmer weather arrives, we tend to freak out a little bit and just grab and wear whichever warm weather outfit we can find, without thinking about how we can style and add a little touch of glam to the look.
No matter the temperature during summer, warm weather styling and accessorising should never go out the window. With the variety of silly season events that pop up during this period, it’s important that you have a variety outfits and looks that can be your go-to.
Remember to add these pieces to your wardrobe now, such as party appropriate dresses, plain t-shirts and casual pieces so that you’re not completely stuck when it’s time to pack for your trip away, or before a work function. And most importantly, have fun with it!
