A slice of summer from down under

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.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
