Who knew that some iconic Australiana could be subtle!
These are so bright and cheerful and summery. The white base and smaller scale print means they go with anything and everything, whether that's denim for a fresh, clean look or perhaps a boldly printed skirt for some low key pattern-clashing.
The classic shell top shape has a relaxed fit that's been been carefully tailored to find the perfect balance between comfortable looseness and flattering fit. Whilst simple, it is not boxy or square at all, with little details that hint at feminine curves. It really suits so many body shapes and sizes, looking great worn free over jeans or shorts or tucked into a full skirt to dress it up.
Good shoulder coverage
Neckline half way between a round and boat neck
Bust darts and slight curve at the waist for flattering feminine shape
Hem finishes at the hip
Pleated back detail provides a lovely flow and slight kick to the hem
Limited edition or one of a kind.
Please note that print placement varies.

Cotton poly blend with a smooth finish and weight similar to a men's business shirt.
Being lightweight fabric and white, it's a little sheer, probably best worn with a white or skin toned bra underneath.
