THE AUSSIE LOOK
Because Sydney sits right on the coast, it's reminiscent of glam meets relaxed style. Samantha describes the street style as “a fuse of high fashion with a beach lifestyle.” Sydney has always been a leader in resort and swim. The city's budding brands cater to the effortlessly chic lifestyle of the women who master bohemian luxe by incorporating casual elements into their wardrobe.
SKIP BONDI AND SPEND A DAY AT A SECLUDED BEACH: TAMARAMA
Wills’ favorite place to go for a beach day is Tamamara, which is a little alcove to the South of Bondi Beach. Nicknamed “Glamarama,” it’s where the Aussie women sport their best swimwear.
THE STREET STYLE
“I’m usually in a Tigerlily bikini or Zimmerman swimsuit, and it’s definitely about fine jewelry at the beach. Mixed with something unique, the bohemian stacking of diverse materials is perfect for a laid back day in the sand. As a rule I start with rings on my second, third, and fourth fingers all in different materials, then I add a few midi rings along with them."
THE NEW WAY TO SIGHTSEE: BY Seaplane
The adventure to have in the coastal city is Sydney Seaplanes. At Rose Bay Marina you get in a seaplane, which flies you up the coast of Sydney over beaches like Bondi, Bronte, and Manli. After a nice lunch at Palm Beach, the most northern tip of Sydney, you’re picked up and flown over the Opera House and the Harbour. Wills raves, “it’s picturesque and stunning, and you must do it.”
THE STREET STYLE
“I’d go for something simple like white denim cutoffs and a simple striped top. For accessories, choose more delicate, layered pieces. The pearl is having a big moment, and choosing one in an organic shape mixed with metals brings a girly meet edgy vibe."
the place to sweat in style: THE BONDI TO BRONTE COASTAL WALK
For the most picturesque run in the city check out the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk. You’re almost suspended above the ocean as you run along the water. Wills notes that “it’s fashion parade, you'll definitely see the athleisure trend in full force here.”
THE STREET STYLE
“Stylerunner.com is an amazing site by young female Australian entrepreneurs that sources from all the best brands from the world to shop stylish athletic apparel. My favorite brand is Australian which is called The Upside, offering really versatile, fashion forward pieces to workout in.”
THE chicest invite: an event at NIELSEN PARK
Located within Sydney National park is the picturesque Nielson Park. Among open fields sits Greycliffe House, a historic home from 1852, which plays host to gorgeous weddings and events. With the nature of the park around you and the grandeur of the home, the setting is one to remember.
THE STREET STYLE
“Simple for weddings is best. To make sure you don't overdo it, opt for a block color dress. Australian designer Toni Maticevski has beautiful pieces. Add a statement earring or necklace along with little crystal and metal midi rings. And don’t forget a block heel so you can dance the night away.”
THE BIG NIGHT OUT: EASTERN SUBURBS
Wills admits to being an Eastern suburbs girl, home to some of the greatest places to dine in Sydney. The style there is very bohemian luxe, where you can sport your resort wear with casual pieces. Dinner in Sydney meands getting appetizers at one, eating at the next, and finishing with drinks another. For the perfect trio, try China Diner, Bondi Hardware, and North Bondi Fish.
THE STREET STYLE
“Mix a bohemian ma with leather sandals and stacked rings for a look that's easy and chic. You'll see women wearing popular Australian designers like Zimmerman, Sass & Bide, and Camilla. They all have beautiful pieces for a day-to-night outing.”

All their products are natural made from organic ingredients and I just love their philosophy, "to work with nature and never against it." Jurlique grows their own herbs and botanicals on a farm in southern Australia where they pick and sort all the crops by hand and then they apply a unique three-stage extraction process to draw out and amplify the most potent elements in the plants. You won't find any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or insecticides in Jurlique's natural products.
