It's that time of year when everyone's calendar is full of events. Whatever the occasion this summer, Shore City has you covered with our holiday fashion inspiration (no, we’re not talking about Santa cardigans!). The sun is shining, the decorations are out and we are getting ready to party - whether it’s race day, Christmas Day or a wedding day, at Shore City, we have you covered, in style.

Holiday Fashion Tip #1 - Back the Frilly (see what I did there?!)

Wow the races with a statement frill. I love large frill details on an otherwise tailored dress. They make for an elegant statement and perfect if you prefer more classic finishing touches.

If frills aren't your thing, an interesting neckline can be enough to set you apart with something special.

3. Portmans Misa Frill Dress $159.99

Holiday Fashion Tip #2 - Colour Burst

Go out with a bang and try a new bold colour and team your outfit with a complimentary pair of heels and clutch.

Jewel tones and summer brights are a welcome burst of colour and take us out of our comfort zone. Have fun playing with colours, what makes your eyes pop and your skin glow? If you don’t feel so brave to go bold, patterns are forgiving, make a personality punch and colour can be played up within the print with the right lippy and accessories.

Holiday Fashion Tip #3 - Final Touches

Think of accessories as the sprinkles on your cake. It’s always good to have a few options, both classic and ‘trend’ pieces. Also consider a stylish hat for your face shape, a complimentary coloured fascinator and go the extra mile with hair, nails and makeup.

Why don’t you put your feet up and let our in-centre beauty professionals treat you to a pamper, refresh your makeup look or update your hairstyle?
