Outback adventure, coastal retreat or a cool city break – fashion to inspire your next holiday look.
Comfort is key in the outback which is why the classics are necessary. Broad brim Akubra hat and a pair of sturdy RMs are our go-to for the elements. The bound edge brim, tilted down in front and back for protection from sun or rain, is dinkum Aussie, topped off with a delicate opal on the kangaroo leather band.

This gorgeous calf-length dress by Australian made label Cue, hangs beautifully on the body for an effortless city look. The on-trend belt bag is not only stylish, but also useful, especially if you’re walking through the art gallery followed by a cheese board and glass of wine.

An outfit fit for a wildlife encounter needs to be practical above all. A quilted vest keeps your torso warm, while your arms are free to cuddle! A sturdy pair of Levi’s can handle any wear, while the classic Converse provides comfort and tops off your casual comfort look. Note: Avoid white!
