The transition from winter to spring is a fun time to get us outdoors more, lift our spirits and inspire fresh fashion choices. As the winter chill slowly fades, it’s time to stash away those bulky winter woollies and introduce lighter, more breathable pieces that are ideal for the warmer months. If you’ve already switched up your wardrobe and noticed a few gaps, your local Good Sammy is brimming with warm-weather essentials that’ll inject a big dose of sunshine into your style. These versatile staples can be mixed and matched with various outfits and seamlessly take you from day to night. So, lets get into, shall we?

1. Lightweight tops


Having a collection of basic lightweight tops is a must for warmer weather. Cotton tees are perfect because they’re comfy, stylish and easy to pair with anything. Plus, they come in all sorts of prints and colours to match your personal style. And don’t forget about ribbed tanks—they’re great for hot weather, super comfortable and can make you look a bit more put-together than a regular tee – as long as your bra straps aren’t showing. To mix things up a bit, also consider floaty camis, off the shoulder tops and other romantic blouses with details like frills, puffed sleeves or ruching.

2. A button-down shirt


Never underestimate the versatility of a button-down shirt. It can be worn buttoned up or open, tucked in or untucked and paired with anything from shorts, skirts, jeans and pants. It also comes in handy as a beach cover up or a lightweight jacket when it’s not quite jacket weather. A cotton or linen button down not only looks polished, it also keeps you cool and shields you from the sun. Better still, op shops are full of them – especially in the men’s sections.

3. A denim jacket

Denim jackets

Everyone needs a denim jacket in their wardrobe. It’s a timeless and classic piece that never goes out of fashion and it’s suitable for all kinds of summer occasions. It provides just the right amount of warmth during cooler evenings or when the air-con is blasting a little too hard, and it’s not too heavy or bulky. It’s durable and can withstand frequent wear and washing, and it comes with multiple pockets, which can be useful for carrying small essentials like your phone, wallet, keys or sunnies when you’re out and about. What’s not to love?

4. Shorts


From denim cut offs to chino shorts to boardies, nothing says summer like a classic pair of shorts, and Good Sammy’s got a bunch of styles to suit every taste and body type. Whether you prefer them loose and comfy or tailored and chic, it’s your call. But to avoid any uncomfortable chafing, it’s a good idea to not go too short. Also opt for breathable fabrics like cotton and linen – these materials don’t stick to your skin and can absorb moisture, ensuring you stay cool and comfortable on those scorching hot days.

5. Dresses

As well as the classic sundress, summer dresses come in a bunch of styles – mini, midi, maxi, wrap, A-line, slip, smock, halter, shift, shirt and more. Dresses exude femininity and style, and their loose, flowy designs keep you cool when the weather's hot. The best part? They're a one-piece wonder. No need to fuss over matching tops and bottoms. Just throw on a dress, and you're ready to go. Want to jazz it up a bit? Add some accessories, and voilà, you've got a chic look with minimal effort. It’s a perfect option for those hot and lazy days.

6. Skirts


Like dresses, summer skirts are a must for warmer weather. They’re super light and go great will all kinds of tops – think a basic tee for the day or something strappy for a night out. Whether you’re into maxis, minis, or somewhere in between like midi skirts, Good Sammy has your perfect summer skirt for you. From floaty to more structured options, you’ll find just what you need to rock your summer style with ease.

7. Lightweight pants


When you want to keep your legs covered on warm days, lightweight pants made from materials like linen, cotton and silk are an excellent option. Whether you prefer wide-leg or cropped styles, baggy cargo pants, or flowy harem and palazzo pants, they’re all great for summer: breezy, comfy and stylish. Remember to choose pants in lighter colours, as they absorb less heat than dark colours.

8. Sandals


While thongs are perfect for the beach or pool, sandals are your go-to for all other summer occasions. They keep your feet cool and comfy in the scorching heat while giving you that laid-back, stylish vibe. Good Sammy's got a tonne of summer sandals in various sizes and styles – slides, espadrilles, and strappy options, to name a few. Look for a pair that can handle a good amount of walking without giving you blisters and still keeps you looking effortlessly put-together.

9. Swimwear


Summer is all about beach trips, pool parties, and having a blast in the water. So, you've got to have a good set of bathers to dive right in. Good Sammy has a fantastic range of one and two-piece swimsuits in various flattering styles, and you might even find some with their tags still attached. While you're at it, keep an eye out for a sarong too. It's a versatile beach cover-up that can double as a towel when needed.

10. A carry-all bag


Summer's all about spontaneity and getting out and about. For those on-the-go days, you need a versatile bag that can handle it all – from your everyday essentials to a beach towel, cover up, sunhat and water bottle. That's where a carry-all comes in. Whether it's canvas, woven raffia, or straw, these bags offer both style and practicality, making them a must-have summer accessory. And guess what? Good Sammy has plenty of preloved options for you to choose from, adding a sustainable touch to your summer look.

11. A sunhat


Protecting yourself from the sun is crucial, and a hat is a stylish way to do it during summer. Whether it's a straw hat, a cotton bucket hat, or a canvas wide-brim hat, you'll find plenty of options at your local Good Sammy. Wearing a hat not only shields you from the sun but also adds a cool factor to your look.

12. Sunglasses

A great pair of sunglasses is the perfect final touch to your daytime look. It's a small but impactful addition to your summer wardrobe, and you can easily pair them with any of the items mentioned in this list. Be sure to check out Good Sammy's range, especially the ones tucked away in the lockable cabinets. You might discover the perfect designer or vintage pair that adds some extra flair to your summer style.

Enjoy the hunt for these summer essentials at your nearest Good Sammy store. You might even discover that you already have some of these items in your wardrobe, so it’s time to show them off. If you find yourself missing a few must-have pieces, swing by your local store and snag them before the summer heat hits full force. By shopping for preloved warm-weather essentials, you're not only giving your wardrobe a sunny refresh but also supporting the slow fashion movement. Sustainable and stylish – now that’s hot!
