#1: A tropical vibe
Get into the summer mood by matching a floral-print sleeveless blouse with denim shorts and strappy sandals.
#2: A casual weekend look
This effortless combination is perfect for the weekend brunch date: loose-fit blouse, shorts and easy slip-on sneakers.
#3: Playful layering
For something dressier, take your cue from street style star Patricia Manfield and layer a denim mini skirt over an oversized shirt.
#4: A racerback top
A racerback top is ideal to beat the heat – pair with breezy palazzo pants and easy slides, and elevate the look with a leather belt.
#5: An off-the-shoulder dress
A simple, off-the-shoulder frock takes just seconds to put on – keep it all black for a classy vibe, but make it interesting with statement accessories.
#6: A winning formula
This combination of off-the-shoulder blouse plus jeans plus slides works every time – accessorise with dainty jewellery and a pair of cool shades.
#7: A bold hue
A bold red shade like this will surely turn heads – swap out the socks and sneakers for sandals or slides to really combat the heat.
#8: Ripped jeans
To make rocking denim jeans more bearable in this heatwave, match a pair of ripped jeans with a cotton or linen (the most breathable fabrics) top.
#9: The maxi dress
Summer would not be complete without the staple maxi dress – try one with spaghetti straps like this one on street style star Veronika Heilbrunner.
#10: The vintage band tee
A vintage band t-shirt immediately ups an outfit’s cool factor tenfold. Style with frayed shorts and sneakers for an ultra-comfy look.
