Just the 6 best pieces from Kmart's new 'Summer Daze' collection to live in this summer.

Raise your hand if you’ve thought about making a purchase of some description this week? Us too.

Well, you’re in luck because Kmart have launched their summer womenswear collection just in time for some weekend shopping.

The ‘Summer Daze’ range is full of the kind of clothes you want to hang around in when it’s bloody hot out. Think floaty dresses, jumpsuits, pull-on shorts, relaxed trousers and comfy skirts in lightweight Australian cotton and linen blends. Or, as the retailer puts it: modern silhouettes, rustic textures and elevated fabrics in neutral colours.

Side note – here are some great sources of inspiration for spring racing fashion looks below. Post continues after video.

The collection’s colour palette is airy and neutral, but with pops of hero colours you’d find in your spice rack like cinnamon, ginger, mustard and olive green. The core range is stocked in sizes 6-20, with additional Curve styles designed for up to size 26.

Oh, and don’t forget about accessories. We’re talking woven totes, cross body bags, neutral heels and on-trend sunnies. And slides. SO MANY SLIDES.

There’s a lot to consider and even though every item is priced under $25, things could get out of hand real quick. So, let’s talk through the six best pieces from the Summer Daze range.

1. Sleeveless Button Through Midi Dress, $20.

World, meet your new go-to, throw-on summer dress. The waist tie creates a flattering silhouette for all body shapes, and how great is it when you can still wear a normal bra under a summer dress?! Whack it on over swimmers at the beach, and pair with flats to BBQs or a sandal heel for arvo drinks.

Side Button Linen Blend Maxi Skirt, $20.

This skirt looks far more expensive than its $20 price tag. The side button detailing makes the skirt feel on-trend and more elevated than your average skirt, and it's available in a bright mustard and black.

Tie Waist Linen Blend Pants, $18.

Nothing beats a relaxed linen pant and this style comes in four colours - black, white, striped and sand. The pants have a straight leg fit and a cinched, high waisted tie. You can wear the pants as they are, or rolled up for a bit more of a farshun look.

Short Sleeve Button Playsuit, $22.

If you love a good playsuit, this one is really fun. The cinnamon colour is gorgeous and like the dress, the style can be dressed up or down. Probably not the best for the beach when you need to get in and out of your outfit quickly, but it's an excellent brunch option.

Macrame Rope Tote, $15.

Everyone needs a great tote and this one looks like it belongs on the arm of a Malibu beach house owner. It's big enough to fit all your crap and comes in four colours - black, white, mustard and cinnamon.

Finally, let's finish with a great 'going out' bag. It's your standard crossbody bag, but we're obsessed with how the statement handle lets you turn it into a structured clutch. And the shiny croc print is everything.
