Fashion stylist Drosia Parliaros shares her top tips for key summer holiday looks in Tropical North Queensland with local model Kiara Cooper.
View styles below and Drosia's top outfits for key holiday dressing.
Style 1: Cotton summer dress
Summer has well and truly arrived in North Queensland and a cotton summer dress is a must-have holiday staple. The puff sleeve is still in for summer and an 80's inspired silhouette is the perfect easy to wear look that is suitable for most body types. Complete the look with a neutral bag like the Piper Florida Crossbody bag from Myer and team with some comfy slides from Betts and Novo Shoes. For a dressier look, opt for heels or wedges like the Danna Wedges from Famous Footwear. When wearing patterns, keep makeup and accessories subtle to keep the overall look balanced.
