Each season we have an exciting range of new styles in an eye-catching array of colours. We realise it can actually be quite daunting for some customers but with help from our enthusiastic and knowledgeable sales staff, and some time in the fitting rooms experimenting, you’re sure to find something to complement what is already in your wardrobe.
The emphasis at Gaby’s is on styles that match our casual lifestyles. Even weddings are not as formal as they once were, and many local weddings are beach or garden occasions, so we carry a range of smart casual garments that you can dress up or dress down accordingly. Gaby’s is particularly well known for its large range of casual tops and pants, jeans, skirts, dresses and knitwear. Jackets and coats in winter, swimwear in summer, and a few more ‘dressy’ outfits are also stocked.
In summer the emphasis is on natural fibres – we love cotton, bamboo, viscose and some linens. In winter many of the dresses are designed so they can be worn over a fine merino for warmth. Lengths are varied – above the knee, on the knee, just below the knee, calf length or maxi. Something for everyone!
Many customers have told us that skirts below the knee are hard to find. We have them! But we also have shorter skirts which in winter are great worn with boots and opaque tights.
Gaby’s has lots of them! Leg shapes vary – there are skinny leg, slim leg, slim straight leg, straight leg, and a modern bootcut (slimmer than the old bootcut). We have tummy-tuck jeans in a number of brands. The denim fabrics used now are super comfortable with plenty of stretch and there is a variety of dyes and finishes and colours. We stock PJ Jeans, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Vassalli jeans, MacJays jeans, Toorallie denim/merino jeans and several others.
The range of tops at Gaby’s is huge! There is everything from casual tees through to lovely printed floaty silk tops in summer and colourful merino tops in winter. And just about everything in between!
Summer styles include the popular cropped and ankle-skimmer lengths, and of course shorts for the hotter weather. In winter there are cords, tweed and herringbone and checks, slim and straight legs, as well as plenty of classic black pants. MacJays and Newport are two of our most popular pant labels.
Our dressier jackets include lovely styles from designers such as David Pond and Fray. These can be easily worn casually with jeans too though. Casual jackets include warm wools from SeeSaw in winter, lightweight jackets from Lemon Tree and Democracy in summer, and lots of knit jackets, hoodies, rain jackets etc. A popular jacket for all ages is a colourful down puffer jacket or longer coat from Moke – these are packable into a small bag that comes with them so are ideal for travelling, they are very light and take up little room.
We love our colourful knitwear! For summer there are always lots of cottons in bright summery colours and neutrals. In winter there are beautiful merino sweaters and cardigans, wool mix knits and cuddly merino possum jumpers and jackets. Optimum, Matisse, Scope, Zaket Weekend, Yarra and Noble Wilde are some of our favourite labels for knitwear.
We have a great colour selection in Rainbird stowaway rain jackets. These are waterproof, breathable, fully seam sealed, fully lined, have front and back vents and a fold-away hood. They are very lightweight and pack up into their own little bag so are ideal for taking on holiday or keeping in the car or golf bag. They are great walking jackets – ideal for dog-owners.
Gaby’s are stockists of the popular Togs brand. In summer there is a range of one piece swimsuits, bikini and tank top styles. Most styles have extra support across the tummy, good inbuilt bras (some with underwires and some shelf bras) and some have matching wraps. For the coming summer there will be a number of mastectomy styles.
Gaby’s accessories are selected to coordinate with the clothing stocked. There is always a good selection of necklaces and earrings including bright, colourful items and the more classic silver, gold, pearl and black pieces.
In winter soft, snuggly scarves will brighten up dull days. Our hats, gloves and scarves in possum and merino are the ultimate in ‘snuggliness’!
