In this climate, sticky heat and sweat patches are a daily issue that we all try avoid (but just deal with more often than not). There’s just no escaping the scorching sunshine, save for dressing to suit the tropics.

Luckily, our stores are now stocked with their latest Spring / Summer collections, and the brand new Massimo Dutti store at VivoCity is of no exception. We love their current soft light colours and loose fabrics that make dealing with our climate not only bearable, but fashionable too.

Dutifully go through our top picks, pin them to your to-buy list and then make a trip down. Hey, there are two lines that go to HarbourFront station so no excuses.


Shirt with insertion lace and grosgrain, $125

A crisp white shirt is like a slice of bread. Necessary in your daily life (we’re assuming of course), pairs well with other things, and affordable even if you aren’t going too atas


Striped contrasting top, $125

Your girlfriends are going to show up to brunch in pretty dresses so wear this camisole to stand out in your wefie. 


Shirt with navy blue stripes print and frill detail, $125 

This summer staple top? Best paired with a sun kissed glow and fresh manicure.


Motorcycle jacket, $225

If a classic motorcycle jacket in black seems too edgy for you, one in a powdery shade of blue still elevates a feminine frock. 


Pink textured weave jacket, $225

Call it a boucle jacket or anything else you want but this is your new jacket to ward off air conditioned induced office chill. 


Khaki shirt dress $175

Wear it as it is, an oversized jacket or even cinched in at the waist – you get your bang for your buck when you experiment with this dress. Material and price upon availability.


Maxi dress, $175

A no-brainer, this dress works equally well at the beach with sandals and a straw hat or with sneakers and a denim jacket for work.


Tailored shorts, $135

Just because they’re tailored doesn’t mean they’re sartorially unfriendly , match them with the shoes you already own. 


Print culottes – price available in store

If you’re sartorially safe, wear these culottes with the white shirt in photo one. If you’re not, anything goes. Material and price upon availability. 


Shoulder bag – price available in store

Is it a half moon or geometric bag? It doesn’t matter – use this roomy one to store your everyday needs.
