As the warmer months draw to a close, we love to keep our social calendars packed with outings to keep the Summer vibes going. We want to take the stress out of finding an outfit and have compiled this nifty seasonal styling kit to keep you on trend from brunch to bar as the mercury starts to drop.

Brunch to Bouldering
Whether it’s Saturday morning brunch or a day of indoor rock climbing, Kathmandu Fortitude Valley has active wear that will have you looking fit and fashionable! This popular retailer stocks outdoor apparel to combat all the elements, such as rain-proof jackets, active leggings that move with you, and sports bras to hold you in good stead. Kathmandu will keep you comfortable all day long and dressed to tackle anything the day throws your way.

Date night
Make a fashion statement that’s sure to impress by stepping out in a floral frock from Destacarse Boutique. ‘Destacarse’ means ‘to stand out or be noticed’ in Spanish, and you’ll certainly turn heads in their stunning clothes! This boutique stocks a range of styles made to flatter all body types, and we adore their current collection from designer Celia B. Think vibrant and fun prints that can easily be dressed up or dressed down. For an outfit that will turn heads, you can’t go past the Poppy Top and Rosemary Skirt – ruffles are on-trend and this skirt is next level.

Toasty like a marshmallow
When the mercury dips it’s so easy to reach for the old faithful trackies and hoodie, but it’s not always appropriate to wear them to social gatherings unless it’s a sleep over or camping. If you want to look effortlessly cool, but stay toasty and warm, get cosy in some threads from Universal Store. It is sweater weather after all, so rug up in an oversized Wrangler sweater or be a little bit extra in an I AM GIA camel coat.

Concert chic
Booked tickets to a gig way back when, but now the event is finally here and you don’t have an outfit sorted? Never fear, Phoebe Paradise has you covered! The brain child of Brisbane born-and-bred visual artist turned fashion designer Phoebe Sheehy, this funky boutique was created with fashion-forward gals in mind. Concerts are ­­the­ place to strut your street style, and there’s no better way to layer your look than with a grunge jacket. Make a statement in the biker-style Kustom ‘Desire’ leather jacket or simply keep warm in the denim Kustom ‘Romance’ jacket.
