The Dreamy Dresses & Summer Sets We're Obsessing Over Right Now

Silky sets, punchy prints and cute combos – here's our edit of the 'fits that are giving immaculate "endless summer" vibes.

Faithfull the Brand

With the last month of summer upon us (say it isn't so!), we're clinging to the memories of sand, surf and sun in any way we can. 

That means we're curating the perfect wardrobe full of pieces that exude "endless summer" vibes. Make like you're kicking back by the pool in a silky set, before adding a pair of earrings and a bright lip for your evening dinner, and you have resort wear that will last you forever.  

So, if you're wondering what the best resort wear buys in Australia are that will have you chasing the sun all year round, we've done all the leg work for you.

From flowing maxi dresses in punchy prints to matching sets and pieces you can mix and match, there's something for everyone and every price point. Just add a sunset beach picnic and a cocktail (we love these pre-mixed options) and you'll be on your merry way!
