With warmer days right around the corner, it’s time to pack away those thick winter layers and start thinking about your perfect summer wardrobe.

Transitioning your style to summer can feel tricky. There tend to be more trends with this season compared with others, which might leave you struggling to keep up or wondering which ones are worth investing in.

Luckily, there are some pieces and fabric choices that come around year after year. These are the items that will quickly become key staples through the upcoming warmer months – and the team at Sussan know precisely which ones you should be reaching for.

Stay Light in Linen

Nothing says summertime like classic, easy-to-wear linen.

Available in a range of neutral and vibrant shades, linen is one of those materials that offers a clean, contemporary look for work and a relaxed, easygoing vibe for downtime.

Simply woven, lightweight and incredibly soft, it’s the perfect material for hot days to stay cool without compromising on style.

Many people avoid line believing it’s difficult to care for, but Sussan reassures us this isn’t the case. Find out more in their easy Linen Care Guide.

Australian Cotton for Staples

Cotton is a highly sustainable material, as its one of the most biodegradable fabrics, decomposing within one week to five months.

Not that you’ll be throwing your clothes out anytime soon! Cotton is also very durable and much like linen, perfect for those sweltering Aussie summers.

Australian Cotton is an excellent material to source your everyday basics, from staple tank tops and tees to easy throw-on shorts and skirts. Sussan has you covered here; better yet, they work with Cotton Australia, representing Australian farmers to produce responsibly made cotton.

Elevate Your Loungewear

When it’s too hot to move, you want ultimate comfort in clothing that doesn’t dig in, chafe or irritate. Finding the right, light, breathable loungewear is key here, and no summer wardrobe is complete without at least a couple of sets you can switch up!

Whether you need sets for sleeping, relaxing at home, or running casual errands, again, Australian cotton and linen will be your best friends.

Reach for sets in these summer-safe fabrics in colours you can mix, match and combine together to get the most out of these essentials.

Dress to Impress

Dresses will never not be a good idea when it comes to summer. They’re the quintessential wardrobe piece that offers versatility for any occasion in a wide range of fabrics, colours, prints and silhouettes to suit every shape.

If you feel a little over dresses and want to mix things up, jumpsuits are a great bet! Wide-leg versions will keep you cool on those warm days while still providing a sophisticated style. If you want a version that’s more on trend, opt for a ‘boiler suit’ style with a collar – pair with a wedge sandal for an easy summer look.

Style Up in Shirts

Shirts are one of the most versatile essential pieces when it comes to summer. Perfect for staying cool and relaxed at work in a slightly oversized style or thrown-over dresses, shorts, and swimwear for those days off.

Give your wardrobe a refresh with some lightly tailored linen for work, available in short or long sleeves, or choose floaty blouses in summery hues for style that works in and out of the boardroom.
