Be It a Mad Hatters Tea Party or High Tea at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne, a distinguished lady must not only act the part but look the part, too! Whats the point of nibbling on scones & vanilla tea cake without a pretty dress? And much like the many and varied cakes and delicacies on offer, here @ The SwankStore we have a very wide range of different dresses, kaftans, tops & shirts that can match your mood & the occasion.
This Season sees the launch of our new Florentina Collection which brings together a kaleidoscope of bold & bright colours in neo classic style patterns, reminiscent of the romantic era Italian artworks. The Florentina collection features a broad range of new season items including Jumpsuits, Kaftans, Tops, Maxi Dresses & a range of accessories.
Candied pinks, soft pastel greens, rose gold & pops of royal purple, red, yellow & blue make the print colour style, featuring a deep style border pattern that evokes feelings of a detailed & intricate picture frame. Deep & complex with a unique & exclusive pattern from the house of Inoa fashion group. Finished off with crystals & beading that provides the shimmer & sparkle for dramatic effect.
STYLE TIP: Match your kaftan with a clutch bag with crystals
For new season styling tips, we love matching our maxi dresses & kaftans with a vintage fur jacket (you probably have one sitting in the back of your wardrobe) to create an amazing juxtaposed look that blends old world with new world stlyles
Whether you’re off to brunch with the girls, taking the little ones for a day trip to the museum or you’re just spending a bit of time discovering the sights & sounds of your city, we know that a day on the town is one of the more enjoyable days to be had. But if your going by the fashion uniform of almost every inner city local, you’d think that you need to wear a ‘black on black’ ensemble to fit in… We tend to think different, here at TheSwankStore.
For Spring Summer 2018/19 we have designed our new seasons Jumpsuits & Playsuits for a cool, colorful edge that will help you stand out from the others with a glam look that at home both on the streets of inner city Sydney or Melbourne & lazing by the resort.
Its time to put the kaftans, gypsy dresses & maxi dresses aside & pick out one of these modern new styles. This seasons Jumpsuits & Playsuits are designed to be fun. Flattering cuts (no our playsuits don’t cut up thru your bum!) & modern styling, these onesies can easily be paired with a leather or denim jacket for a street style.
Check out the below pics for some up-to-date fashion style tips & cues.

Being the free spirit I am, I love being, recently I was lucky enough to escape to the resort town of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a little fun in the sun. Heading off to a beachfront resort I knew I had to get the right outfits together, so I packed all my colourful pieces that i bought from TheSwankStore.
To me, resort style dressing is all about bright colours, soft & light fabrics to deal with the humid weather & loads of glamour to get me from the pool, to the beach & then to bar for cocktails.
This Is My Holiday Fashion Diary:
MORNING WALKS ON THE BEACH // The Santorini Azure Play Suit
Mexico is hot. I mean like humid & a bit sweaty. Now, I love the heat as much as anyone does, but I don’t like it when my clothes stick to my skin.. Especially at 8am! So, for my morning walks, I chose to thrown on the Santorini Azure Playsuit.
It’s light and breezy! Bright blue & White so it looks just perfect when your going for a walk by the ocean. And I just cant get over the amazing beadwork and crystals on it, adding that little extra sparkle & glam.
Im not really one for compliments BUT I must say, the number of people who stopped me on the beach to comment on this playsuit proved to me how special this piece truly is!
EVENING WEAR // The Bellagio Cross Over Mini Dress
I really enjoy a night out with a few cocktails and some yummy food. Make mine a margarita on the rocks followed up with some ultra fresh catch-of-the-day
fish tacos. YUM. YUM. YUM But oohhhh what to wear for dinner and drinks? Reaching into my suitcase I felt a little bit adventurous, so the animal print Bellagio Collection piece was the go for the playful mood I was in.
Arriving at the beachfront bar I felt like I had reached celebrity status in the gorgeous Bellagio Cross Over Mini Dress.
Trust me when I tell you that this dress will have people turning heads!
I paired it with simple roman sandals for a flawless beach-town look. I opted to add a little sparkle to my sandals to match the sparkle on the dress.
Im not usually one to enjoy the compliments, but I tell you what, its really flattering when other women are not staring you up and down, but actually come over & compliment you on your outfit. AND YES I did tell them all about the swankstore too!
MY FAVOURITE ITEM // The Sevillia Collection Gypsy Dress
Finally, my favourite piece I took down to Mexico was this STUNNER - The Sevilla Gypsy Dress.
True to its name, makes you feel wild and free, just like a gypsy! This dress can act as a perfect, glamorous beach cover-up, or can take you to a sunset dinner (paired with sandals and a straw bag, of course). The darker style motif is a little moodier than the brighter colour prints at theSwankStore but, that’s what I love most about the Sevillia Collection. The gypsy Dress Style is flattering & after a few days in the sun, I like the sleeves that cover your arms for a bit of protection from sunburn too.
One of the great things about TheSwankStore is that they have a very wide range of items for Plus size girls too! Try a Gypsy dress or Short Box Kaftan as the perfect piece for your vacation & holiday dress. All items are available in sizes up to size 3 (which is great for plus sizes)

This seasons hottest trend is all about the 'Bohemian Gypsy', a look that brings together different colours, textures & accessories to create a unique look. Dont be afraid to create a clashing look with different prints & colours, while also pulling out some of your favourite vintage classic pieces to create the look. This season we love to add a chunky belt as a statement piece, rounding off the entire look.
Whether you're on your way to a music festival like Coachella or just dressing up for a picnic with friends, read on for advice on how to bring the Bohemian Gypsy look to life.
Recreate this bohemian Gypsy Look by pairing the Bellagio Silk shirt with a pair of faded stonewashed cut off denim shorts as the base of the look. Then add a floppy gypsy hat (perfect for those bad hair days) & accessorise with bangles & boho drop style earrings.
We recommend trying out the matching Bellagio flat loafers to complete a head to toe look that is both effortless & a head turner.

Adding a chunky belt is always a great way to add shape to a kaftan. Kaftans sometimes feel big & shapeless - Adding a big belt creates a slim shape at the waist or hips & accentuates both the booty & the bust! It's all about the curves, girls!
We always recommend colour clashing with a statement piece style belt, which will draw attention to the shape of the dress in how you have styled it.
If you dont have a chunky belt then you may wish to try a regular belt & layering the silk garment over the belt by overtucking.
Finally, pair it with a bohemian style hat for a modern look.
Again with the belt, but it is on trend & is an inexpensive way of creating a higher fashion style. We suggest trying the Sevillia Collection with some strap black heels to take you from afternoon cocktails through the a glamour evening
