To go with the BBQs, pool parties and sweaty weather (if we can be frank), Kmart has the perfect ‘throw-on dress’ you 100% need in your wardrobe.
In our opinion, a throw-on dress is the quintessential piece of a stylish summer wardrobe. The criteria? It needs to be easy to put on (no unnecessary zips or buckles), a breeze to accessorise and be versatile in the number of occasions you can wear it to.
And this blush, subtle snake-print number fills all three requirements. Even better, it’s only $25.
Worn here by affordable fashion influencer, Tina Abeysekara (Instagram @trasttotreasured), the ‘Tiered Maxi Dress,’ which is really more of a midi-length, offers maximum swish-ability, while giving you a bit of shape thanks to its waist tie detail. You can also make like Tina, and add a brown leather belt to cinch it in.

In case you weren’t (yet) aware, the long-sleeved midi dress is set to be the look of the season, after Zara broke hearts with its $49.95 polka-dot midi-dress. It was so coveted by UK women that it spawned its own Instagram fan page, @hot4thespot, which documents public sightings of the dress. However, while a longer sleeve length is all well and good when your summer temps barely push 30 degrees during a heatwave, we’d rather a little more arm-aeration when our mercury is rising to 40 degrees and over.
