Fresh As Summer Fashion
Holidays are on the horizon and the days are getting hotter and longer which can only mean one thing - summer has arrived! From bright beachwear to relaxed resort wear, we show the pieces that you can purchase from Paradise Centre that will take you from the surf to the street. This season's trends capture the vibrant yet relaxed beach culture that influences our fashion choices during the summertime.
This season, neutrals are out and bold, textured colour is back! It's all about bright and bold colours with a patterned retro twist. Create a playful outfit that can take you from the beach to the bar by swapping your slides for sneakers, pairing some boardies with a button-up shirt and adding some culottes to your cozi. Pick and choose your favourite pieces from our surf and streetwear retailers to create your own summer style.
For women, Baku Swimwear is a top spot to shop for swimwear that covers a variety of body shapes and sizes in fun, colourful styles.
Fast Times Skateboarding and Stateside Sports are great for slick streetwear accessories, including bucket hats, caps and sneakers, while Rip Curl and Surf Dive 'N Ski have relaxed resort wear covered for both men (think baggy linen shirts and board shorts), and women (cute matching sets and playsuits).
Elevate your look this summertime with a bright, confident palette. For the guys, we love Rip Curl for their board shorts. They're available in a variety of patterns and colours that create interest in both the surf and on the sidewalk. Try Surf Dive 'N Ski for their lightweight shirts which are perfect for the balmy summer evenings and finish the look with some new season sneakers from Vans.
For the ladies, textured pieces are in. Layer your outfit using a number of different fabrics and accessories to take your look from zero to hero. Start with a bold red lip and brilliant sunglasses from iKandi Sunglasses, add a straw bag from Surf Dive 'N Ski and team it with a sports cap from Stateside Sports (where you can find the largest collection of hats on the coast!). Baku Swimwear is the best spot to source textured, bright and locally made bikinis and one-pieces, plus they have an amazing collection that support fuller bust sizes.
