Nautical and Nice – Spring Fashion

Image source: Photographer Lauren Biggs

Colour and texture took the lead for our spring fashion shoot on the Sunshine Coast. The coastal vibe remains a constant when bouncing from the romantic, bohemian laces and linens to the tailored and preppy feel of the latest Polo Ralph Lauren collection.

I love how our style never feels too far from the sea whether dipping your feet in the sand at Kings Beach or boarding a yacht at Mooloolaba Wharf.

This season we see statement accessories continue to sing. Make fashion noise with bold earrings, bags and sunglasses. The swing towards jewellery and fashion with a story is here to stay.

Handcrafted and antique jewellery tell a tale while revived and handcrafted original garments speak to a growing and important sustainable fashion revolution.

Our fashion editorial was shot at the studio of Lauren Biggs featuring local models Jade and Kane. Justina Simone created some gorgeous hair and make up for our diverse but always coastal Spring styles. From nautical to nice – we have your Sunshine Coast Spring style sorted.
