The Stylist Edit: Sambag Summer Must-Haves

by Rosie McKay

To celebrate Sambag's 20th birthday, I styled three looks that show off summer's hottest trends, and give my top tips on how to wear them...

Since launching Sambag with a bag collection in 1996, there has been no stopping, Sam Wagner, Creative Director of Sambag. Quickly developing a cult following, the brand soon expanded to shoes and apparel and this year Sambag celebrates 20 years as one of Australia's leading boutique labels.

With focus on quality fabrics that feel great on the skin and easy-to-wear shapes that can easily take you from work to weekend, it's easy to see why Sambag is still enjoying great success.

In honour of this big milestone birthday, I styled three of my favourite outfits from the current collection. Touching on a few current fashion trends including pastel colours, girlie printed coordinates and the effortlessly sexy slip dress, these three looks are not only chic, but classic, which means they will still be wardrobe favourites long after summer. I know what you're thinking, and I'm with you...ADD TO CART NOW!

The Flirty Polka Dot Coordinate

Stylist Tip: A girlie coordinate can easily be dressed up or down. For a fun casual look, leave the shirt unbuttoned, and tie up at the bottom. Keep the sporty vibe going and team with a pair of white trainers. For something a little dressier, completely button-up the blouse, tuck it into the skirt and wear with a heeled sandal or mule. And then of course you can completely seperate the pieces and wear with some of your own wardrobe faves - both pieces really pop with white.

The Pretty Pastel Dress

Stylist Tip: Every woman needs a Little Blush Dress in her wardrobe. Its a versatile dress that you will reach for over and over again, whether it be for the office or a dinner date. I love the way the subtle panelling really helps to flatter the waist while the free flowing shape makes it really easy and comfortable to wear. I've teamed it with heels, but this dress would look equally as good with a cute sneaker or chic flat sandal.

The Effortlessly Sexy Slip Dress

Stylist Tip: Now this is what I would call the perfect Little Black Dress. Super comfortable, but also effortlessly sexy thanks to the netting detail and fringed hemline. Cut from 100% silk it feels great on the skin and also comes with adjustable straps. It's the ideal piece to take you from Christmas party to pool to pool bar for cocktails these summer holidays. And of course works just as well with heels as it does with a jewelled or strappy sandal.
