Your summer fashion guide to playing it cool

The mercury is rising but that doesn't mean fashion or style must be sacrificed. There are still plenty of styles summery ladies of leisure can slip on to stay cool, while looking hot. Inspired by the endless Gold Coast summer, fashion label Malo Collection embodies playful fashion for the hotter months.

Co-owner Katherine Riley says the secret to delivering the ultimate spring-summer items is in the detail.

When your warm weather items come with plenty of detail, it eliminates the need for layering as becomes the norm with winter basics.

"Our Set Sail playsuit features a ruffle lined plunging neckline, frilled hemline and crossover back tie,'' Katherine said.

Our Peony dress is one our favourites and perfect for summer '17. With its drop shoulder styling and waist tie, this one is super versatile. Team it with tan sandals for a casual weekend look or glam it up with a statement lip colour and our Vacay clutch.

The Peony Dress is a summer must-have.

"Flirty femme meets bohemian chic in our Summer Fling dress. Its gorgeous cold shoulder styling and billowing sleeves make it perfect for those picnic in the park weekends with your closest gals.”

Like the perfect Australian sky this time of year, Katherine is taking colour hues from blues, which she tips as being the colour of the season. "Baby blue hues are definitely a colour tone we're loving for spring,” she said.

"Our Set Sail playsuit is a gorgeous shade that we're loving.

"Muted hues and baby blues are also slaying in our Little Mermaid dress, perfect for the spring-summer seasons ahead.
