I love mixing animal prints. For me, it’s like playing with different shades of neutrals. This Kate Sylvester maxi dress loves to flow open on the beach while buttoned up, and adds just the right amount of sheer over my Zimmermann bikini. Add extra luxe with a pair of sunglasses.
If you’re looking for an instant ticket to disheveled, androgynous cool, this is it. This Rika Studios shirt doubles as a great dress when buttoned up over my Bondi Born swimsuit. Don’t be afraid to accessorise either - this necklace from Reliquia and my Pared Eyewear sunglasses exude sophistication.
Comfortable and easy, everyone needs a multitasking staple. This Ginger & Smart dress goes perfectly with my A-Emery sandals.
Nothing sets off a tan like white does. This one piece Zimmermann swimsuit doubles as a bodysuit après swim when worn underneath a sheer White Story dress for universal appeal. Couple with a headband from Reliquia and a Brie Leon necklace.
Pattern-fatigue is a real thing, but stripes are a tried and tested staple. Whether classically nautical or bold and contemporary, they’re always a good idea in summer, exemplified by this Rebecca Vallance dress.
I love a button down – it’s an underrated classic. Wear it like this Nanushka piece as a beautiful robe on the beach and then do it up in a flash for an elegant transformation.

Green is one of those colours that has a pretty bad reputation as being an unflattering colour, but is it true? The autumn/winter '14/'15 runways from Gucci, Balmain and Isabel Marant were awash with green in multiple shades and the colour worked. Whether khaki or jewel-toned green, the palette looked beautiful paired with burgundy, brown, cranberry and dark yellow. I especially loved the way it brought back a modern '70s flavour into little A-line skirts and coats or the military cool it evokes with black. It inspired me to have a little play with pieces available now to get a head start on the trend.

Culottes + green = two awesome new trends put together! I love the shape and elegance of culottes. Here, the burgundy perfectly offsets the green while the tan pops the tones further.

70s redux that feels cosy but looks ladylike.
