How to Give Your Style a Sea Change

In her first column for Who What Wear Australia, Miann Scanlan talks us through what it’s like to go from city to sea.

The pendulum of my sartorial choices swings constantly between two extremes: cityscape and seaside. One look at my Instagram account and you’d be forgiven for thinking I literally live on the sand, which is almost the case. My front door isn’t far from the shore, and every single day I make sure I spend time in the ocean. Living in a coastal town far from the city isn’t exactly conducive to satisfying my inner fashion girl, who yearns for edgy, modern, minimalist statement pieces in head-to-toe black. It’s no surprise that the moment I step foot in the city, my pointy Saint Laurent boots come straight out, along with structured blazers to drape over my shoulders.

No matter which city I am in the world, I always pay homage to my upbringing by the sea. Speaking to memories of sunsets shared with friends, salty hair and sun-kissed skin, keep scrolling to follow my tips below to give your style a sea change to amalgamate the best of both worlds.
