The Hottest Australian Sun Protection Trends of Summer 2016/2017

Posted on 10 November 2016

Although it is the best source of Vitamin D, and great for our health and wellbeing, spending too much time in the sun is harmful to your skin. So, to help you stay safe and stylish this summer, we’ve compiled a list of on-trend sun protection essentials to make the most out of summer days!

Honeybell Waterwear Sun Dress


As a busy multitasking woman, the multi-tasking range of sun protection clothing by Honeybell Waterwear is a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Not made just for the water, Honeybell Waterwear garments can be worn day or night and dressed up or down by pairing with shorts, capris, skirts or even a pantsuit.  Great for your summer holiday get away, they also pack away to next to nothing and will remain completely wrinkle-free.

Slap on sunscreen

For my face, I love La Roche Posay’s Uvidea BB cream.  It's got a light, silky smooth cream that melts into my skin, and it blends in really well. It’s a great base for foundation for when I want more coverage too.

For my body, I use Hamilton Sensitive UPF50+ Sunscreen – an Australian laboratory that started in Adelaide in the 1920s and has particular expertise with dry and sensitive skins. It’s free from fragrance, lanolin, and colours, and offers broad spectrum 50+ protection. It is stock listed at most pharmacies Australia-wide, but harder to find in Sydney, but pharmacists in Sydney will happily order it in for you (I know – because they have for me!).

Rigon Headwear

Everyone needs a straw hat to protect their face from the sun and look adorable in the process. The hat of choice this season is the oversized capeline hat, however, don’t go replacing your fedora just yet – the fedora craze is still sweeping Australia!

Like sun protection clothing, look for hats that are labeled as providing UPF50+ protection from UV exposure.

Sunbella Sun Parasol

Sun Parasols have had a makeover – and a new sleek and modern design just released from Sunbella. The City Luxe is UPF50, will fold into your handbag and includes a little Swarovski crystal bling.  It will quickly become a favourite summer accessory – so versatile taking you from weddings, to beach days, to cafes.

Jenna Topheads sunglasses


Mirrored lenses, cat-eyes and tortoiseshell styles are all hits for summer. I love the "Jenna" from Topheads Eyewear that perfectly incorporates the timeless cat eye frame with a modern flare. These shades are not only aesthetically pleasing but ethical - made from recycled materials including wood and cotton based acetate. A cult classic perfect addition to any outfit from the beach to bar.
