The hits of summer not only reflect the sunny days ahead, but also the year that was and how we've adapted accordingly.
Summer spritzers. Rosie rosé spritz, $25 (four pack). From fashion and interiors, to hair colour and wine, a soft shade of pink was hot property in 2020. Fittingly, a rosé spritzer is tipped to be the bevvy of choice for many summer picnics and barbecues. Available at Dan Murphy's and BWS stores.
Huge hats. Seafolly oversize visor, $49.95. Big brims are where it's at this summer. However if you fear this look could swallow you, bucket and straw hats continue to enjoy their day in the sun. theiconic.com.au
Tiny bags. Britz silver clutch $109.95. Small bags are a nod to our continuing love of trends from the 1990s - and having spent months without the need for any bling, we're also craving some razzle-dazzle for the party season. stevemadden.com.au
Swimwear with bold patterns. Olympia swimsuit, $144.95. Opt for big floral prints splashed across your swimwear this summer. Ladies, ruffled shoulders and high waisted (bikini) bottoms are also on trend. azurebeach.com.au

Facial massage. Immortelle Divine Serum, $155. Self-care routines became more involved this year and with it, a deeper appreciation for serums, creams and oils that are most effective when they're massaged into squeaky clean skin. au.loccitane.com
