#1: Innika Choo
Inspired by the laid-back lifestyle of both her birth and adopted homes (she now lives in Bali with her family), Australian Innika Choo’s label focuses on colourful, embroidered smocks and blousons, mostly made of lightweight cotton and linen.
These Instagram-ready tops (US$179-US$279, or S$243-S$378) are filled with carefree spirit and easy-to-wear goodness. Wear them with denim cut-offs, jeans, or even on their own over your bikini.
