The Summer holiday is officially over but for fellow summer loving Aussies, we'll make it our mission to hold onto that lazy, sunny day feeling until the end of January celebrations for Australia Day.

However you plan to spend the day- a good swim at your favourite beach, a family backyard barbeque or a long brunch with your besties- why not add a new fashion item or accessories to add to the celebration feeling? Stylish sunnies, bold bright swimmers, hardworking leather slides, day-to-night dresses and fun gigantic flamingo floaties are just some of the pieces that we love this summer.

We curated some of our favourite summer pieces below to make your Australia Day that little bit more special this year:
