5 Perfect Beach Resort Outfit Ideas

Summer is fast approaching and the team here at O'Brien's are getting super excited for our latest arrivals and pre-orders which are due any day now! In celebration of Summer's arrival, we've put together a fun edit of 5 perfect beach resort-style outfits that will take you from the beach, the pool to the bar. Whether you're having a staycation or planning a coastal getaway this summer, we'll have you looking absolutely fabulous and ready to go this summer.

We hope you love these fresh summer styles as much as we do and be sure to keep your current wardrobe in mind when creating your next summer look.

Loving a Midi Dress-

The best summer dresses are ones that can be wheeled out time and time again, fit you comfortably that you're happy in them from dawn 'til dusk. We think the style of dress that can live up to that expectation is the beloved midi dress.

If you’re not already in the know, a midi dress is one that sits somewhere between a maxi and mini length, usually hitting around the mid-calf, definitely past the knee. Midis are a great wardrobe essential for spring/summer, especially here in Australia. pair it with some luxe leather sandals, a woven crossbody, and some tinted shades for an on-trend. The right midi can get you from the beach to the bar and everywhere in between in effortless style.

Can't go wrong with a Print!

We have a great selection of stunning tops that are going to be on trend this Summer. The classic top is a great alternative to dresses for a summer look. They come in different shapes, cuts, fabrics, colours, and prints. You can pair them with everything you want, starting from trousers, jeans, skirts to denim.

We've focused on tops/blouses with stunning prints to make styling an outfit an absolute breeze. The key is to pair a printed statement top with a solid bottom, whether it's a linen pants, denim shorts, or boho style skirt. The bonus is they really are super versatile for many occasions both low-key or more formal.

Show Some Skin!

The weather is heating up, and people are heading out, marking the return of your summer wardrobe. It’s no news that the midi dress has reigned supreme in recent years, and while love for longline dresses will not falter, it’s time to make room for shorter hemlines this summer. Ok, we're not talking about sky-high hemlines but let those knees see a little sun too!

Our picks are certainly on the border of mini's and midi's so it's certainly easier to wear for any age. Go for styles that are light, relaxed and summery. You can dress this style up or down with gorgeous footwear, and accessories that will see you from the beach, poolside to date night.


Shop "Mini" Dresses:

Obsessed with Tees.

I don't know about you but time and time again, I reach for that tee more than anything else in my wardrobe, especially in summer. What's more, we love a bold statement tee with either a print or cool graphic. You can style them with casual linen bottoms, many denim styles and even dress it up at night with a gorgeous structure lightweight blazer.

It's also a subtle way to be playful with your summer outfitting if all-over prints aren't your thing. Not to mention the comfort and ease of a tee are second to none. Mix and matching your statement tees a great way to utilize your summer wardrobe.

Shop Statement Tees:

Go Maxi!

We absolutely love a maxi dress here at O'Brien's, especially for summer. The first thing is the versatility and flattering look. Maxi length is great for dressy events, it’s perfect for casual gatherings, summer parties and many other events. Let's not forget it's a flattering look, for any figure, and body shape.

Today’s styles include fitted bodices, loose, strapless, oversized options made in linen, viscose blends, sheers and printed fabrics. The options are endless!
