Beautiful beach bags - the bigger the better! Colourful patterns and comfortable handles are key when searching for the perfect bag for days at the beach, shopping trips, and picnics in the sunshine. Check out the Annabel Trends Tote Bag in two summery prints – only $49.95 from Birdsnest.



Classic sunglasses have made a comeback with large white frames appearing everywhere, reminding people of cool retro styles. These Vintage Cat Eye sunnies from PepperMayo are a like a Kurt Cobain/Fifties hybrid, and they’re available for only $29.95.



Hats are an essential poolside necessity, and one of the most popular styles for summer is a lightweight wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off your face while adding a touch of style to your swimming looks. Try something like the Ace of Something Selene Hat from Hello Molly. Made from natural woven straw in soft rose pink, the Selene is just $59.95.



Statement earrings are one of the biggest trends this summer. Dress up any outfit with a pair of brightly coloured tassel earrings, like the Classic Tassel in Fuschia from Rubi, which are only $12.95.

The old style rule of never clashing silver and gold in an outfit has well and truly been thrown out the window by modern fashionistas. This summer, try dressing up your outfit by layering different length necklaces in different coloured metals. Start with a piece like the Cut Out Pendant Necklace from Black Pepper (just $29.95), and layer up by adding smaller pendants on silver or rose gold chains.

Other summer essentials

The summer holidays are not just a time to soak up great weather – it’s also festival season! Face paint is out this year, and Boho Temp Foil Tattoos are in. Get festival ready and grab this three-pack from Hairhouse Warehouse from $14.95.

Maxi dresses are another summer wardrobe necessity. Whilst they’re possibly the greatest item to wear when you’re looking for casual comfort, you can also wear them out and about at summer events and dress them up with a bright thin belt. The Narrow Patent Belt in Cameo Pink from Laura Ashley is just $41.97.
