If you're planning on ditching the cold weather this winter in favour of the salty air of the European coastline or the many sun-soaked cities, then your shopping list probably doesn't consist of brown leather bombers or the perfect trans-seasonal pieces. No—you'll be on the hunt for breezy linens and beach-ready accessories.
Luckily, Her Black Book doesn't just have all your winter essentials, but all the brands perfect for a summer spent on the sand too. Keep reading below for the brands you'll want to pack away in your suitcase, including luxurious resort wear and colourful staples to throw over swimwear.
Cloth & Hide
Local label Cloth & Hide has a range of summer staples that are perfect for a European getaway (unsurprising considering the brand was born on the Sunshine Coast). Their pieces are timeless, effortlessly breezy, and based on the power of simplicity, all created with sustainable, plant-based textiles. Plus, you'll find other Australian-designed swim and accessories here too.
With its name the Latin translation for the sun and the sea, SOLAQUA's pieces are rooted in sustainable luxury and considered design, with a range of resort wear that lasts well beyond its current season. From silk sets in deep chocolate to towels hand-loomed by skilled artisans in Turkey, the pieces here are perfect for beach to bar or lounging by the pool.
If your wardrobe is more on the colourful side, look to Australian brand LUSANA, who creates both contemporary resort wear and handwoven accessories. The pieces, whether in the brand's signature hand-crochet, breathable linen, or organic cotton, are just waiting to be worn with comfort and ease.
For classics with a twist, turn to Aston Studio, where the collection is seeped in understated elegance. From signature striped shirts in a range of vibrant colours to matching linen sets and terry sets, the brand was built for sun-soaked holidays.
Born In Bali
With a design ethos driven by adventure and discovery, and built for free-flowing comfort, Born In Bali's creations are destined to take you from one destination to the next. Whether you're drawn to their bamboo terry swimwear or indulgent cover-ups, rest assured that you'll discover the perfect summer companion to elevate your style.
