Beach Style: Southern Hemisphere

- Rory Taylor Coulter, Creator of, a carefully curated lifestyle blog.

Blessed with some of the nicest weather year-round, the Southern Hemisphere offers some of the best beachside the world ’round.

Ever the Jacques Cousteau, I love the sea and exploring the best seaside destinations (not to mention crashing clambakes and sipping caipirinhas) while doing it in style. Here are three spots in the Southern Hemisphere for fashionably soaking up the late summer sun:

BEACH: Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro.

STAY: Copacabana Palace

BRING: Sobral bracelet; Seu Jorge CD; The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho; Agua Bendita bikini; Proenza Schouler necklace; Wayuu Taya Mochila bag; Frederic Fekkai Beach Waves Spray; Havaianas sandals.

BEACH: Seminyak Beach, Bali

STAY: Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali

BRING: Lisa Marie Fernandez swimsuit; Dries Van Noten x Linda Farrow sunglasses; Givenchy sandals; Club Monaco jacket; Chanel nail lacquer in Black Pearl; Isharya Onyx ring; Jimmy Choo bag.

BEACH: Bondi Beach in Sydney

STAY: Four Seasons Hotel Sydney or Ravesi’s Hotel

BRING: Matina Amanita ring; Tame Impala CD; We Are Handsome swimsuit; The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough; Lucas Papaw ointment; Proenza Schouler necklace; Shakuhachi sandals.

For more travel style inspiration, I suggest Destination Style and Must-Have Travel Luggage for Jetsetters.  And for more swimwear inspiration, check out Gottex Heats up New York Fashion Week with Irina Shayk, who just landed the highly coveted cover of the Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
