Here in the land “down under” we are in spring. While the mornings and late afternoons are just perfect, by lunchtime, you can feel the heat beating down from the sun, radiating back up from the ground and from walls of buildings! And in mid summer, it will feel like that by 8am every morning.
So it’s not really a surprise that everyone wants to MOVE as little as possible and WEAR as little as possible. The tricky bit is how to keep it classy when you’re out and about.
For smart dressing, my go-to tops in this weather are made from loose-fitting, lightweight and breathable fabrics, in a tailored style. When I wear shorts or skirts, I also try to keep them in a tailored style – with cuffs, pleats, pencil skirts or tulip shaped skirts – so I don’t look like I’m heading to the beach!
