Whether you’re heading out to party on Australia Day or staying in for a good old-fashioned Aussie BBQ, knowing what to wear can be a challenge. Here’s how to tackle your style dilemmas.

1. Backyard BBQ Attire

If you’re dressing up for a backyard BBQ, keep it simple with a pair of cute shorts matched with a casual tee. The day will probably consist of playing cricket and hopping in and out of the pool so comfort is key. If you’re feeling festive, why not grab an Australia Day bikini as well?

2. Effortless Drinks

Heading out for a drink in the arvo? Pop on some wedges with your skirt/shorts and casual singlet. Or finish off a chic summer dress with the hottest flats you own!

3. Ladies’ Luncheon

For a girls-only affair, a bright lip and cute clutch will be the essence of your attire. Team your accessories with a top or dress over some crisp tailored pants (if it’s not hideously hot) and a pair of heels and you’re good to go.

4. Beach Bum

If you’re heading out to the beach this Australia Day, grab your favourite swimwear and slip-ons (probably thongs, who are we kidding?) and you’ll be on your way. Don’t forget to include a big hat and a pair of sunnies. The best accessory for this look is SUNSCREEN. Seriously. Being burnt to a crisp is not flattering on anyone.

5. Festive Style

Going to a festival this Australia Day? Remember that it’s going to be super-crowded and you’ll probably be dancing a lot so pick a comfortable outfit. Stick to a good pair of shorts with an edgy top and boots! If you’re feeling festive, play around with your makeup and add some sparkle to that highlighter.
