Lucky enough to have an Aussie holiday coming up? Perhaps a staycation? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve compiled a list of dresses that we’ve always imagined would be perfect for a particular holiday.
1. Tropical Escapes in Port Douglas
Drinking a Mango Daiquiri on a sun lounger in Port Douglas is exactly what you deserve for your next holiday! Our outfit recommendation for Port Douglas? We love our short kaftans for this humid part of Australia. Our pastel-coloured Quinn Kaftan would be our go-to and may be dressed up with wedges for a smart casual occasion. The Quinn also comes in a maxi design for those preferring a longer length!
2. Tasmanian Winery Tour
Imagine this; you’re touring around the award-winning local Tasmanian winery ‘Clover Hill’, testing varieties of wine whilst admiring their vineyard glistening in the sun... You then remember that there’s a charcuterie board waiting for you back at the cellar door. Ladies. What more could you want from life?!
Our dress pick for this perfect occasion? The Paloma in Mulberry! If you’re hitting the state during the colder months, this maxi layers beautifully with jackets or coats. Want to know our favourite feature of this dress? You can’t spot any accidental red wine spills ;)
3. Wellness Retreat in Byron
Off to Byron to attend an uber luxury wellness retreat? (P.S. we also define the local pub in Byron as a wellness retreat too). Well frankly, we’re jealous. What’s not to love about their beautiful hinterland and private beaches? Our style choice would be a longer kaftan, which can be easily dressed up or down. The Cara Embellished Long Kaftan would be our first pick, as the colours and design fits the relaxed vibe Byron is famous for.
4. Bar & Restaurant Hopping across Melbourne
Feeling like a city getaway? Why not hit up the food capital of Australia, Melbourne? We feel like it’s best to play it safe regarding the weather in Melbourne, we’d recommend The Aubrey JUST IN CASE you’re faced with a freezing night in the city. Its breathable fabric will ensure you won’t be uncomfortable in warmer weather and also stretches in allllll the right places.
5. Camping Through The Great Outback
Featured // Darcia Embellished Cami Maxi
Diving deep into the Aussie outback? We wish we were there, too! This time of year is the perfect opportunity to camp and travel through Central Australia, especially when you’ll be seeing the surreal winter sunsets casting over the natural surroundings. Since you’ll be packing light for these longer holidays, cami maxis are the way to go. If you’re soaking up the hot Aussie sun during the day you can tie your maxi on the side next to the knee, otherwise when it gets colder at night you can layer up with a jumper - easy! Our Darcia would be our go-to considering how versatile and lightweight it is!
6. Road Trip Through The Great Ocean Road
Featured // Jaya Pink Print Maxi
What better way to see the beauty of Australia than to take a road trip on The Great Ocean Road? You can turn it into a short weekend holiday or extend the road trip to visit other Australian spots on your bucket list. Since you’ll be in the car for an extended amount of time, comfort is a major priority! The Jaya is a great maxi that you can dress up for smart casual affairs, such as stopping in at a nice cafe during your road trip. It’s also the perfect bikini cover-up for those spontaneous beach swim stops!
