As always, summer has hit us full force in Australia with women’s boutique online fashion slowly trickling in. The start of a new season is always fascinating as we look to the high-end retailers to pave the way for women’s boutique online fashion.

Clear trends have already emerged for summer from retailers like Aje and Bec + Bridge. Both have exaggerated the puffy sleeve to where it is no longer just a simple statement on the shoulder. In terms of design, we are seeing more fit and flare and sweetheart necklines accentuating the girlishness that tends to come out to play in summer. Looking to colour and we see a lot of block colour pastels, but also delicate florals and gingham. Accessories are a wave to the ‘70s and ‘90s with hand-beaded bags, strappy kitten heels, oversized hair clips and miniature sunglasses being the finishing touch to every look. 

Summer Style

Olive + Vern’s Instagram is the account of many girls’ dreams. With aspirational looks and a glass of rosé here and there, it really is fitting of the way this summer’s trends are forming. They capture that sweet girly aesthetic with designs covered in floral prints and little crisp linen dresses. Olive + Vern’s ‘Sweet Pot Daisy Cropped Top’ in pastel orange or mint with a delicate daisy print really is an ode to the trend. Another favourite is the ‘Sienna Slip Dress’, a silky mini which is pretty in pink.

For those looking for a fun twist on breezy summer clothes, look no further than Esther & Co. Donating $5 for every $300 spent, the women’s online boutique has been able to donate a whopping $250,000 to charity on a mission to end human slavery. Offering chic boho summer styles under their label as well as Esther Luxe Bridal, this online boutique really has it all. The ‘Florine Dress’ in white features a yellow and black floral print, frilled skirt and a flattering v-neckline both front and back. Perfect for a summer wedding is the ‘Lily Maxi Dress’ in baby pink. Pair it with a straw hat and white mules for an effortlessly breezy look.

Another staple site for women’s boutique online fashion is Billy J Boutique. Pair their white ‘Hampton Top’ with the matching pants for a fresh summer look sure to bring out that summer glow. Perfect for those upcoming Christmas parties are the ‘San Petro Top’ and skirt in a bright, oversized floral print featuring a one-shoulder puff sleeve. Billy J also has you covered for those heading to the water. The ‘Tuscany Bikini Set’ in lilac gingham is the perfect addition to your poolside wardrobe.



In terms of swim, Une Piece is an up-and-coming brand now instore at David Jones. Their ‘Original Sexie Rashie’ in Snow Leopard is the perfect addition to your beach bag! If long sleeves aren’t your thing, they also stock cap sleeves in the ‘Sexie Rashie’ collection with the ‘Original Sexie Rashie Cap Sleeve’ swimsuit in Luxe Botanical Blue being a personal favourite.

Take your look from the beach to the bar with Get Robed, luxury emerging robe brand. ‘The Bridget in Blue Streak’ is a play on the classic tailored boyfriend button-up featuring those ever-needed pockets and oversized cuffed sleeves. With all garments made of a mixture of silk and cotton, these easy breezy essentials can be worn directly over wet swimmers without altering the fabric and protecting your precious skin from our harsh summer rays.

Don’t be afraid to mix the bold with the girly this summer. Look to crisp white mules and stark black miniature sunglasses to add freshness and an edge to any look. Beat the heat with our picks and let us know your favourites!
