We may be kissing summer goodbye this weekend, but when it comes to our carefree beach waves, we aren’t quite ready to do the same. Our editors recently discovered the best products to achieve that perfectly undone finish, and now we’re looking to models for complete hair-to-toe inspiration. From Karlie Kloss’ white-blonde waves to Caroline de Maigret’s rumpled, seaside strands, it appears the perfect complement to effortless curls is a makeup-free face and a sultry maillot. Now, if only we had a little more time to top off our tans before fashion (and the rest of the Western Hemisphere) goes back to school.
