Fashion stylist, Drosia Parliaros, shares her top tips for summer day to night dressing in Tropical North Queensland with local model Kiara Cooper.

View styles below and Drosia's top outfits for day to night dressing.

Style 1: The white summer dress

Start with a classic white summer dress. Just like a black dress, a white dress has serious potential. Our top pick for the season is the Perfect Stranger Valencia Knit Midi dress from Universal Store, it is a staple to have in your wardrobe and never goes out of fashion. Drosia has styled this for the day with a pair of casual sneakers which are great for busy mums on the go. Our go-to white sneaker is the Adidas Stan Smith Sustainable Sneaker from Platypus Shoes. Finish your outfit with a black cross body bag, sunglasses, and a green hair tie for an added pop of colour. Our top picks are the Unite Satchel Cross Body Bag from Mimco and the Ray Ban Classic Aviator sunglasses from Sunglass Hut, the perfect sun-smart accessory. 

To transition from day to night, you can instantly give your little white dress an evening boost by adding an on-trend mesh top. Add a pair of nude heels, clutch, and a belt which cinches in the waist. We love the Miss Shop Sandal heels from Myer and the statement colour clutch from Mimco to add an instant touch of glamour to our day-wear.


Style 2: Pink blouse and skirt

For this next look, Drosia is going pink!  Pink is a huge colour this summer, and who would say no to rocking this colour trend. Kiara wears a pink lightweight blouse with frill detailing and a linen skirt. We can't look past the Darted Organically Grown Linen Skirt from Country Road this season for a stylish day look. Drosia has paired this with soft pink sandals and a mesh tote and these very versatile wooden hoop earrings. Our top picks are Seed Heritage Paper Straw Tote Bag from Myer and Wooden hoop earrings from Portmans.

By adding an on-trend heel, bag, hair clip and statement earrings, Kiara is ready for an evening out.  If ever in doubt, monochrome dressing always looks put together. We are loving the Murkani Gypsey Goddess Medium Hoop stunning statement earrings from Silvershop, paired with Miss Shop Cassidy White Sandal shoes from Myer.


Style 3: Skinny jeans and emerald top

Drosia's final look is a staple pair of skinny ankle jeans paired with a V-neck emerald green top. Style this look for the day with slides and a casual bag. We are loving the Zecca slides from Novo Shoes paired with the Intwine Cross Body Bag from Mimco.

To dress this for an evening occasion, Drosia has thrown a mint colour blazer over the top and changed Kiara’s shoes and bag. Our top picks to create this look is the Mi Amour Blazer from Portmans, and the Miss Shop Cassidy White Sandals from Myer. Top off the look with a necklace and you are ready to go. Our top pick is the Chunky Statement necklace from Lovisa.
