Summer is well and truly in full swing, which can make for a few scorchers here and there.

When the temps creep up, it can be hard to stay stylish when all you’re thinking about it how to stay cool. And don’t get me started when a fun pool party rolls around. I want to feel cool and look fresh, even if I’m not totally feeling it. Who’s with me?

Even though I call New Zealand home, I’m a Queenslander, so dressing for the heat is in my blood!

The trick to staying cool is in the fabric, and the fit – basically natural fibres that breathe, and / or shapes that let a breeze through — haha! The perfect pair of togs also helps, whether you’re hitting the beach, or just laying by the pool.

So sit back, and relax, I’ve got five of my faves from THE PLAZA that will keep you cool in the heat this summer.
