Relaxed living is key this season, while also being influenced by major events that have changed the way we live.
Relaxed workwear. Ines De La Fressange collection twist pleated blouse, $49.90. Workwear is decidedly more relaxed right now, thanks to the number of people working from home. It's less about living in your tracksuit and more about weekend-inspired pieces and seasonal patterns,such as florals. uniqlo.com/au
Fragrance. Cactus rain fragranced diffuser, $49.95. Subtle smells that waft through your home are an increasingly popular choice. ecoya.com.au
Sandals. Women's Hurricane shoes, $139.95. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step, sandals teamed with socks are also trending (for those who have both the courage and style cred). teva.com.au
Face mask. 3-pack face masks, $28. For many Australians, this new accessory is now part of the everyday ensemble, and therefore an opportunity to flaunt your favourite colours and patterns for the season. asos.com/au
Championing Indigenous work. Kinship ceramic coaster, $4.95. Recognising and supporting the talents of Indigenous Australians has come to the fore. This piece is by artist Melanie Hava, who was raised in Far North Queensland, and creates paintings that reflect her connection with tropical rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef. A portion of each sale from this giftware retailer goes to the artist. kohliving.com.au
Sustainable packaging. Green Tea Seed Serum, $54. Companies continue to push the boundaries when it comes to sustainable packaging. This bottle is made with an outer paper mould, a lighter inner plastic liner to protect the formula, and 10 per cent recycled plastic used for the cap and shoulder to help reduce the use of plastic. innisfree.com/au
