The heat is still in the air, the beach still beckons and the evenings still stretch out into the glorious twilight. Yes, there’s still a full month left to officially enjoy summer. And not only can you wring out final moments of the season with the help of a few cheeky additions to the wardrobe, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to pick up a gorgeous bargain as well.
This season has been all about a return to the 1970s – bold, geometric prints, sleek lines and the flared pant. Lace-up leather sandals and chunky heels have also been ‘must haves’.
Smart shoppers know that it’s about making each item work across the day.
Head to work in a Azalea Dress from Anna Thomas then pair with a calico Bergamot jacket for the perfect summer cocktail bar outfit. Also vintage-inspired is the Mirabella Scuba dress from Anthea Crawford. Not only does it have a serious splash of floral prints, it’s also priced to make you smile.
Alongside the bold prints, the other summer theme has skewed towards classic neutrals and fluent fabrics. The breezy, unlined Mous trapeze dress from Ignazia is a perfect summer staple for wandering by the water or layering with a jacket for a rooftop soiree. They also stock the essential summer duster which can be worn as a simple dress, with cut-off denim shorts or dressed up with a tee and pants.
But remember, summer won’t last forever so pop in to the MLC Centre before the sun sets on the best of 2016 summer fashion.
