The Fashion Quarterly x Afterpay Summer Lust List

26 October 2021

Here are the trending summer styles we'll be purchasing with the help of Afterpay.

PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AFTERPAY

Each week, we’re bombarded with the latest trends from hundreds of brands, and while it can be overwhelming at times, it’s literally a requirement of our jobs!

Therefore, it’s no wonder that the Fashion Quarterly team are avid users of Afterpay. Whether we’re coveting pieces from local indie designers or big-ticket items from overseas retailers, the ability to ‘Afterpay it in 4’ is true financial freedom—and rest assured, thanks to Afterpay’s set limits, we’re spending responsibly. 

Here are the summer styles we’re currently lusting over, and when we do decide to hit purchase, we’ll be paying off our orders in four fortnightly payments, all thanks to Afterpay

Feeling beachy

I can’t wait for some long days at the beach, and this azure blue shirt by Ruby is perfect, whether it’s paired with denim shorts or over a swimsuit. Added to that, quintessential summer accessories are a must-have—a good pair of sunnies, a wide-brimmed hat, and trusty Birkenstocks!

Pretty in pastel

I’m easing into the colours of summer with gelato-inspired hues. This sunshine yellow two-piece from General Pants is the perfect foundation to pair with pastel pops of colour—and I’m loving how this periwinkle Deadly Ponies bag and sage green slides take this look to the next level.

A-game athleisure

My athleisure apparel is on high rotation and at the centre of my wardrobe due to the level three lockdown. These are the pieces on my radar for a quick 15-minute workout or coffee on the go. Swap out the tee for an oversized collared shirt, and you’re ready for your next Zoom meeting!

Groovy chic

I’m paying homage to decades gone by with a fresh and funky outlook on dressing. From slinky headscarves and geometric accessories to floral motifs, you’ll find me grooving in these items while at the beach or with a refreshing spritz cocktail in hand. Can you tell that I’m ready for a hot vax summer?!
