THE TRICKS TO TRANSLATING EFFORTLESS AUSSIE BEACH STYLE TO YOUR SEASIDE WEEKEND

The Australian style sensibility has long been an inspiration for chic beach looks that strike the balance of personal style without being overdone. All summer I’ve been scouting the perfect #EscapeDay for Hawaiian Tropic and ELLE Magazine.

The Australian style sensibility has long been an inspiration for chic beach looks that strike the balance of personal style without being overdone. All summer I’ve been scouting the perfect #EscapeDay for Hawaiian Tropic and ELLE Magazine.

Inspired by my interview on the podcast this week with chic, Australian jewelry designer Samantha Wills, I styled four looks that translate the bohemian-luxe style of Sydney’s current hotspots to ideas that translate to all your best summer looks.

The #EscapeDay/ Tamarama Beach

Tamarama earned the nickname ‘Glamarama’ in the 80’s as the Sydney destination to put forward your best beach style.

The tassel should hit around your waist or below. It's one easy accessory that turns a bathing suit into a look.

The most famous beach in the south of Sydney- this is the place to grab a seaside lunch and take in the view.

The temptation when “dressing up” is to add jewelry. However, a bright and breezy sundress worn with mirrored sunglasses adds an element of luxury while keeping it casual enough for a seaside setting.

Start at China Diner and end at Bondi Fish. It's a chic meandering dinner that guarantees the "see and be seen" glamorous Sydney scene.

The Look/  White Hot

The Look/ White Hot

Nothing looks better with bronzed skin than all white (done right) with gold accessories. Layer gold pendants on crisp white separates (like a jumpsuit or maxi dress) for effortless ease.
