Top Summer Outfits for A Tropical Climate

Category: fashion and beauty

Up here in the Tropics, we’re blessed with over 300 days of beautiful sunshine. Our idyllic coastal lifestyle typically includes many afternoons spent picnicking in the park, days spent lounging on the beach, icy-cold sunset drinks with friends, long summer barbecues and early morning coffees as the sun rises. We might be a little biased, but Townsville really is a beautiful place to call home.  

City Beach Mooloola Creek Sandal $29.99, Country Road Swim Print Strapless $139, Country Road Shell Trim Hat $79.95, Country Road Textured NS Tote $99.95, Sportsgirl Sunglasses $39.95

However, with all that said, we’re certainly no stranger to that sticky, balmy North Queensland weather! And some days, that calls for some seriously lightweight fashion choices. The last thing you need is your wardrobe keeping you indoors, when there’s so much sunshine to enjoy outside!

Luckily for you, our retailers here at Stockland Townsville are well-equipped with all the summer fashion trends to keep you cool, comfortable and stylish, too! We’re talking lightweight linen dresses, breathable cotton button-ups, denim shorts, strappy sandals, fashionable boater hats, crossbody bags, stylish swimwear and on-trend straw accessories.

We’re especially crushing over Sportsgirl’s range of mini dresses, linen tops and slip dresses. With a range of colours and prints, you’re sure to find something for every summer soirée on your calendar! If casual-cool is more your vibe, head in to Country Road. These guys have personified the “oh, I just threw this on” style of dressing with many of their items crafted in breathable fabrics, such as linen or cotton. Perfect for an outdoor expedition with friends! For accessories and jewels aplenty, you can’t go past Mimco. We love their range of costume jewellery and spring racing accessories in bright seasonal colours and prints.

Of course, if you’re after a one-stop shop for all things stylish, then a visit to fashion mecca, Myer is a must! Whether it’s a pair of white sneakers to pare back with your denim cut-offs, a wide brim hat to rock at the beach or some beautiful skincare to relax and rejuvenate tired skin, there’s something for everyone here. Top tip: check out Myer’s own-brand ranges for super-stylish threads that will keep you ahead of the pack! We love Piper, Miss Shop, and Basque for workwear.  

So, when it comes to dressing for the great outdoors this summer, think Stockland Townsville. And if you have any sort of hesitation, remember: it’s airconditioned inside.
