Women’s Summer Style Guide: Embracing Vibrant Prints & Flowing Fabrics

There’s nothing quite like an Australian Summer… whether it’s the collective exhale that we all seem to experience in that stretch between the end of December and early January or the laissez-faire attitude that seems to grip us, in many ways, it’s the season that best represents who we are. And it’s the very same sensibility that flows through to the way we dress.


While made-to-measure women’s suits might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you hear ‘Summer dressing’, we’re here to make a compelling case for why it might just be the unsung hero of a warm weather wardrobe.


Let’s dive in!

Garments made to move

One of the primary benefits of made-to-measure suits is that they are built to your unique measurements. In practice, this means that they not only look great on but they also feel sensational. At Oscar Hunt, we pride ourselves on expertly balancing fit with comfort and this is never more important than when the mercury spikes.

A fabric range for any season

Oscar Hunt isn’t your standard tailor and one of our key points of difference is that we’ve curated our range of fabrics specifically with the Australian climate in mind. Working with some of the most prestigious fabric mills from around the world, we search high and low for cloth that is highly breathable and draws moisture away from the body.


Our top picks for Summer? We can’t go past a linen blend or a cotton seersucker. Not only are these tactile fabrics that are soft to the touch; they also look unmistakably summer-y balancing the structure of a tailored garment with a relaxed look that’s perfect for the season.


Which brings us onto colours and prints. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with the bright and the bold. For us, this looks like wider stripes and open weaves in cream, sage, pale blue and blush. Easily dressed up or down, and worn either together or as separates, these are pieces that you’ll wear for years to come.

A foundation to build on

When it comes to accessorising a tailored garment, we advocate for a less is more approach to allow the construction and detail of the piece to speak for itself. This means finer jewellery, well crafted basics as a foundation and shoes that you’ll feel comfortable in.


One of our favourite pairings for the Summer is a linen suit over a white ribbed tank and sandals. It’s the perfect mixture of insouciance, elegance and comfort.
