Proudly Australian, IdleBird is an uber stylish Sun Safe label that wants to you feel fabulous when on holiday without compromising on looking after your skin. 'Poolside Pizzaz' without compromising on the highest sun protection. As the team says...Ultimate Sun Protection fashion.

Founded by Kara here in Brisbane, IdleBird uses an amazing luxury Italian fabric to create what we believe to be outstanding sun safe resortwear and travelwear. And yes, you can even swim in them if you choose - they are Chlorine Resistant too!

Like nothing else we've seen, if we were packing to go on a European vacation, or around Asia or anywhere really, we'd pack these pieces without hesitation, especially the Sun Shirt Jacket. Why? Because they would look as great over swimwear and around the pool and on the beach as they would out to lunch, walking the cobbled streets or casual dinners out. Yep...any time of day or night.

Why did Kara start IdleBird?
"I grew up at the beach, soaking up the soul warming sun, frolicking around in homemade crochet bikinis and hanging out at the surf club. I still choose to spend my precious downtime relaxing at the beach or hanging by the pool either with my kids or with cocktails.

However, time has worked its magic on my priorities, which are now firmly focused on protecting my skin while I enjoy the Australian sunshine. The problem I encountered was finding a fashionable way of covering those parts that need covering without looking like a nun in a neck to knee swimsuit.

And so IdleBird was born. The idea to design a range of garments that would offer sun protection and a little poolside pizzaz at the same time. We like to think that we offer an alternative that is somewhere between no protection and a full body rashie.

We have sourced top quality fabrics - UPF50+ protection, quick dry, chlorine resistant and they feel fantastic to wear. Call it UV, SPF, UPF50+ whatever you like - at the end of the day its sun protection, UV protective clothing which will be the best sun shirt, dress, pants, shrug etc etc, that you've ever worn."

We are over the moon to be stocking this label at Sequins and Sand and thank Kara for bringing this to us all. Dive in girls. You'll see all the IdleBird range below. If you have any questions, just Contact Us.
