Spring Fashion at Skygate

With What the Teacher Wears and DFO

We’re already a month into Spring so it’s time to pack away the heavy coats, fluffy jumpers and lined jackets to make way for flouncy skirts, floaty dresses and lightweight accessories.

With the social season upon us, we know the importance of dressing on trend while being able to transition pieces across multiple events from after work drinks with the girls to a race day, to your work Christmas party, to a wedding and even Christmas Day. Read on to find out how shopping at Skygate DFO can help get more bang for your buck this summer!


From clashing block colours to a single tone from head to toe; brights are so fun. Find a dress in a style that works for your body shape and pick a bright colour that makes you pop! Look for added details like texture, lace, buttons, collars or sleeves for extra oomph, and to really elevate your look, finish the look with bold accessories and colour-complementary shoes.

Florals in spring may not be revolutionary but they never go out of style. Gents needn’t miss out on this season’s trends either with subtle additions like a floral print collared shirt, pocket square, tie or boutonniere suitable for a summer soiree like a wedding or race day. For a less formal look, consider swapping out your standard navy suit for a light blue jacket with cream pants, white jacket with dark chinos or a grey suit with pastel florals. Just remember if you’re headed to a day at the races, there is a dress code to adhere to so make sure you do your research prior.

Accessories are super affordable and can easily update, or elevate, an outfit. Rather than spending money on an elaborate fascinator never to be worn again, opt for hair accessories like clips, headbands or a trilby hat to take you from race day to weekend BBQ. Rattan, pastels and resin are all on trend right now, and at DFO Brisbane, they’re at prices you can’t refuse! Don’t forget a pair of OTT sunnies and a statement clutch and you’re on your way.

Pastels were here through winter and they’re not going anywhere. Look for muted pinks, greens and blues for a soft feminine look. Swap out your usual go-to dress for a jumpsuit, add strappy heels and a pastel clutch in a clashing hue for a sickly-sweet ensemble. If you’re not sure you can pull it off, accessorise with pastel touches like a lipstick, pair of earrings or headband.
