No-one ever thinks of Australia as being anything but sunny; and so, even as the southern hemisphere heads into autumn, the Sunburnt Country is happy to send a slice of sunshine to the rest of the world. It comes in the form of a photoshoot by David Higgs, starring fresh face Steph Smith as the quintessential beachy blonde.

With salted hair and bronzed skin by hair and makeup artist Sara Helou, and effortless styling by Tre Dallas, it’s inspiration for both summer beauty looks and the swimwear styles to invest in.

Elevating the triangle bikinis, classic white tees and fun pairs of summer shorts to new heights are exotic statement necklaces and wide-brimmed hats. Never underestimate – Dallas’ styling seems to say – the value of strong accessories in livening up your swimwear.
