With luxe, effortless shapes, Girl and the Sun takes that magic feeling that you have on holidays and injects it into your every day wardrobe.
Our dreamy range of dresses, cosy knit jumpers and two piece sets are sure to evoke the feeling of being away even while at home. A strong ethos of escapism feeds into a carefree spirit and laid back sensibility born of our proximity to the beach in Australia. Floaty fabrics finished with delicate trims offer styles that can be carried from salty beach days to impromptu adventures and dressed up for those balmy summer nights!
Girl and the Sun was started in 2015 when I saw the need for beautiful and accessible destination styles at an affordable price point. I wanted to create a brand for all women that showcased neutral tones, capturing the feeling of a destination holiday even while at home. After 16 years of working in the fashion industry, it was also about creating something that I couldn't really buy for myself anywhere else.
My goal for Girl and the Sun was always to create a meaningful and intentional brand. We strive to produce quality products that can be worn for many years with a message of inclusivity and freedom.
We are continually working to improve all elements of the brand with a focus on sustainability and environmental impact and look forward to expanding the Girl and the Sun sisterhood across New Zealand, the USA and Europe.
As a small business, we rely on you – our sisterhood – to allow us to do what we love every day!
The support of our amazing customer base has inspired us to give back and we are dedicated to supporting charities that are close to our hearts. We donate $1 of every sale made to a charity making a difference in the world. Charities we have contributed to in the past include Jeans for Genes, Yalari, One Girl, The Go Foundation, Thread Together, the Australian Red Cross and Wires Wildlife Rescue.
Our in-house team also makes time to donate blood on a regular basis. Together with your help, we are proof that even a small business can give back and make a big difference! We can't wait to share the amazing charities we will be supporting throughout 2021.
In 2020 we made a commitment to doing our part for the planet and made a number of changes throughout our business to reflect this. In 2021 Girl and the Sun is continuing to focus on the changes we can make with an emphasis on sustainability.
We are committed to limiting our social and environmental impacts through choosing lower impact materials in our product and order packaging. Your online orders are also shipped in compostable postage satchels, wrapped in eco-friendly recycled tissue paper and all Girl and the Sun marketing materials are also printed on Envirocare 100% recycled paper stock.
We will continue to work towards improving our in-house practices to reduce our carbon footprint.

Returns will only be accepted under these conditions. As we quality-control all of our styles before they are sent out, we will inspect all return items upon receipt - any returns which fail to comply with the above will be sent back to you. This policy does not affect your statutory rights.
Please note that while every effort is made to accurately display the colour of our garments, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be completely accurate.
USA & International customers will be responsible for shipping and handling charges to return unwanted items, unless the item is faulty, then we will cover the return postage. If the package does not reach us, we will not be able to complete the refund, we would recommend sending it via traceable post.
If there is a fault with the style you've purchased, we will offer to repair or replace it where available. If we cannot repair or replace the style, we will offer a refund or store credit. All claims for faulty styles are assessed on an individual basis. The refund will be processed back to the original payment method used to place the order (eg credit card, PayPal, Klarna or store credit).

Credit Notes have no expiry date.
Due to the fast turnover of stock, we are unable to hold items and therefore cannot guarantee that your preferred size or colour will be in stock at the time of making your purchase.
We will not process returns until your item is physically received by us in our warehouse. Once received, please allow 2-5 business days for your return to be processed. This period may vary during peak times (sale periods, public holidays, Christmas/New Year).
