Embrace holiday essentials with Wintergarden

As we embrace the warmer months, we’ve curated three distinct outfit themes that will make a statement, no matter the occasion.

Summer vacations have finally arrived! Whether you’re planning a quick weekend getaway to the coast, jetting off to a luxurious destination, or simply revamping your wardrobe for those vibrant summer nights at your favourite bar, you’ll find an array of fantastic resort styles from your favourite Wintergarden brands. Our top summer essentials are crochet sets, vintage-inspired eyewear, eye-catching raffia bags, and stylish platform sandals.

1.Poolside paradise:

The highlight of summer is undoubtedly the pool or a beachside experience, and it’s the first thing that comes to mind as the warmer weather approaches. Begin your poolside outfit with a chic neutral base—a chocolate brown bikini from Zara—and let your style evolve from there.

Crochet and raffia have taken the fashion world by storm, gracing international fashion week runways and now finding their way into stores. This adorable mini dress from Zara is our top crochet pick for the season. It’s on-trend and incredibly versatile, offering just the right amount of coverage. Pair it with vintage-style sunglasses from Seed Heritage, chunky sandals from Dissh, and a spacious raffia tote from Seed Heritage to ensure you’re beach-ready with all the essentials.

Of course, sun safety is paramount. Remember to include a wide-brimmed hat from Seed Heritage and your must-have essential sunscreens from Mecca. Tuck a comb into your beach bag for managing post-swim salty hair, bring along a miniature fragrance for a refreshing touch, and add a dash of glamour with Seed Heritage’s popular gold earring drops. With this ensemble, you’ll be ready for afternoon drinks in no time. The best part? Its versatility and effortless style make it a winning choice for any occasion.

2.Happy hour


We all know that it’s wise to seek shade before the day’s scorching heat arrives, and our beloved Summer pastime is undoubtedly a leisurely long lunch. Whether dressing up for a delightful meal at the Burleigh Pavilion or enjoying happy hour with friends, the key to a perfect summer look is embracing vibrant, colourful hues. Dopamine dressing epitomises the essence of Summer, and what better way to celebrate the sunshine than by incorporating the lively lemon-yellow shades currently gracing store shelves.

Our top two ensembles hail from Sheike, promising a fun and fresh vibe. Complement your outfit with an additional burst of colour, courtesy of lilac flats from Nine West and an adorable mini magnet bag from Cue. Elevate your look with the playful addition of gold starfish earrings from Sheike, setting the stage for vacation mode. Sunglasses are a must when dining by the beach, and these essentials from Dissh will effortlessly tie your entire look together. Consider stashing Mecca‘s new Violette PR cream blush and the Hourglass eyebrow brush in your bag for light and fresh Summer makeup. Complete your signature scent with “Another 13 Fragrance.” With these beauty essentials, you’ll be perfectly poised for a fabulous Summer outing.

3.After dark


There’s so much joy in stepping out after dusk for a delightful dinner or a well-deserved cocktail following a day in the sun. While a black outfit may appear conventional as a starting point, its timeless elegance should never be underestimated. Our standout Wintergarden favourites come to life this season, offering chic and comfortable options ideal for a night out.

Consider the sophisticated black maxi dress from COS or the satin black set from Veronika Maine as your go-to choices. These ensembles provide style and comfort, making them perfect for evening outings. We recommend adding a pop of pink to infuse a vibrant touch into the night. Enhance your look with a comfortable yet stylish kitten heel for dancing the night away and a matching bag, both from COS,  to introduce that desired splash of colour.

For a finishing touch, opt for statement earrings. You can embrace more colour with COS‘s ombre earrings or a touch of gold with Dinosaur Designs exquisite wearable art pieces. Of course, a classic red lip is always a winning choice, and adding a hint of brown eyeshadow will complete your overall look. To set the scene for your evening experience, indulge in the Summer fragrance that perfectly complements a night out: DIPTYQUE’s Ilio from Mecca. Its enchanting scent will make you feel like you’re on vacation all night. 

With these three Summer outfit inspirations, you’ll be well-prepared for any occasion in style. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, savouring happy hour with friends, or relishing in a delightful dinner, these outfit ideas will enhance your appearance and boost your confidence as you embrace the beauty and warmth of the season.
