David Jones Swimwear 2013.




Unlike the rest of the country, it has been quite cool here in Melbourne (we have only had a handful of days over 25 degrees this month) and we are looking forward to the weather heating up.

Hot days, balmy nights, beach, pool, bbqs, cocktails, summer fruits is there anything we don’t love about summer?

Along with the warmer weather comes the dreaded swim suit shopping but it doesn’t have to be such a bad experience.

David Jones have a gorgeous range of one pieces, two pieces, mix and match separates, sarongs, kaftans, beach pants and dresses to suit women of any age or body type.

What do we love from David Jones’s swimsuit and accessories range?

There are so many pieces to love in the “Jets” range, which is designed for every woman and to complement curves.


Of the Jets Brand “The entire JETS Collection is created with an understanding of timeless, sophisticated elegance, smooth sleek swimwear cut with absolute precision.  This dedication to quality extends across the JETS by Jessika Allen, JETS White Label, JETS Kids as well as JETS Man ranges.

Inspired by beautiful objects, fine fabrics and quality craftsmanship, designer Jessika Allen aspires to make each woman feel beautiful. The result is glamorous swimwear in a combination of soft, sensual fabrics and unique exclusive designs.

Stylish, sophisticated and sexy, JETS Swimwear creates an elegant silhouette both in and out of the water.”

No wonder the Jet range is such a beautiful collection.

We love:


Jets Double Strap One Piece How gorgeous is this one piece? Incredibly flattering to most body shapes, this swimsuit is a sure winner this summer. The colour is on trend this season as well.


Jets Lustre 50’S Gathered Halter and Jets Lustre Gather Side Pant. Hot pink has to be the hottest colour this Summer and this flattering 50’s style halter bikini will definitely turn heads.


After swimming and lying in the sun, we want to get a drink don’t we? The stunning Jets Alchemy Cross Strap Dress will take you from the beach to the bar in a flash. Love the neck ornament detail. Such a versatile dress for wearing with thongs or sandals at the beach or with heels for dinner or drinks out, it is a definite must have!


Tropical print is also a huge trend this season and we love the Sunseeker Sunseeker Pacifica Moulded U/Wire which features moulded, underwired cups for the most flattering fit.


Of course, you aren’t really prepared for summer without a kaftan, are you? Camilla (the queen of kaftans) has an amazing collection of flattering kaftans this season.


Our pick is the Camilla Savanna Round Neck Kaftan, which can be worn up to 12 different ways. Very clever, isn’t it?

Of course, you need some help to kick start your swimsuit and accessory buying, don’t you?

Well, two lucky Mummy of Style and Substance readers will have the chance with a $50 David Jones voucher to spend (which is only to be used on swimwear and accessories), thanks to David Jones.
