Adelaide Fashion Festival 2017 Runway 4: David Jones Australian Fashion Showcase

David Jones showcased their range of premium labels for upcoming spring and summer. There was an amazing range of designers like Aje, Alice McCall, Camilla, PE Nation, and  swimwear from Jets, Calvin Klein Sunseeker. There was also menswear from Politix, Ted Baker, and The Academy Brand, which was refreshing. I hadn’t seen any menswear in the other shows so far.

Showing off their latest collections from labels like C/MEO Collective, Keepsake the Label, Finders Keepers, The Fifth Label, and JAGGAR Footwear. These are just some of the outfits from the runway.

SPF made simple

One thing I don’t get excited about in summer is my pale skin turning bright pink in an attempt to get a tan. For those lucky people out there who tan easily, and don’t sunburn, I salute you.

So if I don’t want to be permanently sunburnt I have to find ways to include SPF and sun smart measures in my life.

Hats

Such an easy and cute accessory for any outfit. Wide brim hats are really good for keeping the sun off your neck. This summer, straw hats are on trend, and for good reason. They’re so cute and perfect for the beach. This boater hat is so cute at the moment, and even better because it was $12 from Kmart; and looks similar to ones from Lack of Colour but wayyyy cheaper.

Sunnies

Ahh, my sunnies. Honestly, I don’t leave the house without them in summer. They keep your eyes safe from the sun, and put less strain on your eyes, and stylish AF.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen can be gross and greasy, but it keeps your skin from ageing any faster than necessary, and who doesn’t love that. Science has come a long way, and thankfully sunscreen doesn’t always have to greasy. I find that using a moisturiser with SPF is easy and convenient. There’s also lip balms with SPF, and the good ole’ tinted moisturiser for those days you can’t be stuffed with foundation. Check out this To Save Face sunscreen from MECCA Cosmetica which has been amazing this summer.

And don’t forget after sun solutions for those times you get burnt. Aloe vera is a great healing agent and feels amazing on sunburn. I always keep a bottle in the fridge.

These travel sized bottles are great for putting in your handbag and use during the day
