The vibrant colors and sly preppiness of John Witzig’s Byron Bay surf culture photos put John Patrick in a bright mood for resort. Calling the look “preppy but cosmic,” he paired ribbed Shetland sweaters in lavender and aqua with plaid mini shorts, and a plain crewneck plaid shirt with a black, feathered tulle skirt.
Patrick’s hippies apparently grew up on L.L. Bean, so there were chinos, cardigans and varsity stripes all with an effortless slouch. Epitomizing the laid-back breeze of it all was a long white slip, which Patrick envisioned as a boho bride.
