Viva Shops: All The Stylish Summer Essentials We Love From TheMarket

We've handpicked some fresh and fun pieces from the online hub's expansive range to add some zest to your holiday wardrobe


Levi's vintage tie dye jacket $99.98 down from $199.95

It's a summer of love with this aptly named 'Haight Surfer' jacket from the denim stalwart. Carefree, fun and unapologetically loud, we love the good vibes conjured by a classic tie-dye print like this.

Fog Linen towel, $35, from Father Rabbit

This classy 100 per cent linen towel by Japanese lifestyle brand Fog Linen is a sleeker alternative to its brightly hued cousins. The dense chambray weave is charmingly rustic, while also being absorbent and long lasting.

Piccadilly Carafe, $69.90, from Paddington Store

Holiday entertaining calls for a big jug of refreshment, be it fresh lemonade or fruity sangria, and what better to serve it in than a vibrant carafe. This one has sleek, modern lines and comes in four colourways.

Baggu bag, $23

A reusable shopping bag is essential for summer (and all year round). You never know when you’ll find yourself stopping by the farmers market, opshopping on a road trip, or heading to the beach, so having a bag on hand is a smart and sustainable idea. Baggu bags fold down to a very small size, so they slip inside even the smallest handbag. They’re made from 100% ripstop nylon and hold the equivalent of two to three plastic grocery bags. This painterly print is fresh, appealing and accessory-worthy itself.

Seafolly swimsuit, $74.90

We love a retro mood for warm weather dressing, and the seasonal nostalgia for summers past informs our holiday wardrobes. This Seafolly one-piece channels 80s beachwear with its textured rib fabric and funky colours.

Vans cap $50

Sunshine on you head? Why not. This vibrantly hued cap from the skate icon is great for summer when you just need a little colour to lift your spirits.

A hand-carved trinket made from pounamu to love and cherish forever. Featuring an adjustable strap. Perfect for all genders.

Lacoste polo $181.30 down from $259

With its preppy aesthetic and sporty roots, Lacoste is naturally attuned to summer style. This polo leans into that heritage with a bold argyle print. Made from a blend of cotton and wool, it’s a great layer to have on hand when the temperature dips in the evening.

Adidas shorts $60

Whether sport or play, these zesty shorts are the perfect way to adopt a sunny disposition for summer days in the sun.

Speedo is an iconic brand, and one that calls to mind Australian beach culture and water sports. This quick drying bag is perfect to keep on hand for swimming excursions, and has harming yet practical appeal.

Lacoste polo shirt $112 down from $160

What's not to love about this fresh take on a classic? An energetic type renders into abstract art for a fun detail. Unisex too.

Adidas slides, $55

Originally designed for football players post-match showers, “Adilette” slides debuted in 1972 and have gone on to become a cool and kitchsy summer favourite. Sporty-looking with a contoured footbed, they are resilient to the rigours of summer (and they float!)

Dear Dylan Ribbed Tank, $79.95, from Father Rabbit

A foundational part of a good summer wardrobe, we love the proportions and rib knit of this Dear Dylan tank. The warm biscuit-y brown hue is a fresh alternative to other neutrals.
