Reading Time: 4 minutes

If you’re dreaming of jetting off to tropical destinations, spending summer days by the pool, and balmy evenings clinking fruity cocktails over backyard dinner parties. We have a compilation of outfits for every sunny occasion. 

We’ve put together new ways to refresh past season favourites, and yet, make our closet feel brand new! The solution? While we opt for floaty dresses and classic light linens, summer is the perfect time to pull focus to our accessories. We can’t emphasise the power of investing in a few key accessories enough. It’s a more cost-effective way to change up multiple outfits, without the need to splurge on an entirely new wardrobe. 

For example, if you take a new bag in a fresh seasonal colourway, it can be worn with every Marle dress you’ve previously invested in. By mixing and matching with other accessories, you’ve already created a range of new outfits that will still have you excited to get dressed each morning. 

Pull focus to statement sunnies, colourful beach bags and layered jewellery to bring more interest to a simplistic outfit.  We’re leaning into tonal summer colours – think blues, browns, yellows – that will seamlessly compliment a summery colour palette. 

So without further ado, you’ll find the WOMAN-approved accessories to satisfy your summer shopping cravings. 

Deadly Ponies Mr Sling Micro Atoll

It’s the handbag of a European summer romance. Your new partner in crime, he’s both practical and opulent in a vibrant teal blue, perfect for a dopamine hit!

La Tribe Elke Braided Sandal

We’re loving La Tribe’s new summer releases. The Elke is a standout for subtly updating your everyday casual sandals. The leather braiding is quite luxe so you can easily wear these day-to-day or to dress up for dinner.

Creeps & Violets Pearl Sunken Sleepers

Handcrafted with freshwater pearls, the Creeps & Violets Pearl Sunken Sleepers are an elevated approach to the classic sleeper hoops. We love the unique shape you’ll find on each hoop, a delicate detail to catch the eye.

Saben Claudette Crossbody

Something a little more formal than your favourite beach bag, but still casual enough for afternoons in the sun. The Claudette is your everyday carry-all for summer. 

Mi Piaci Aida Heel

Ballet flats are the It shoe of the season, so I love this heeled take in Mi Piaci’s collaboration with Kate Sylvester. It gives a feminine edge to a floaty linen dress.

Jules Mila Jacci Sunglasses

Brown turtle sunglasses from Jules Mila Jacci accessories.
Jules Mila Jacci Sunglasses, $265

Homegrown brand Jules Mila sunglasses are made of 100 percent plant-based cellulose acetate. All eyes will be on you! Sun-smart and fashion focused!

Pigment Studio Gossia Necklace

Hand-made in Tāmaki Makaurau, this up-and-coming jewellery label must be put on your radar! The Gossia is made with organically formed links, making each necklace unique to the wearer.

Havaianas Top Animal Flip Flop

It’s giving Scandinavian-cool. After seeing Havis flop around Copenhagen Fashion week, we’re sold for the summer! We’re loving the new prints and the Rotate Limited Collaboration! 

Baina Pool Towel

A must-have in any beach bag is a standout towel. One that’s chic, well-made and will go well with  hues of whites and blacks. Baina’s reserved and sophisticated colour palette is sure to bring joy to any trip to the beach.

Marle Nonna Hat

Sun-smart is always chic. Marle’s Nonna Hat is an accessory staple at WOMAN. In muted beige tones, she’s perfect for the true minimalist and Marle lover.
