My beach essentials: Joyann King

The Harper's Bazaar editor on her signature brand of beach chic.

As online editor of Harper's Bazaar, Joyann King travels the world in the name of style, to places as disparate as Paris (for fashion week) and Louisville (for the Kentucky Derby). So when she has the luxury of choosing her own destination, it's no wonder that there's often sand (read: relaxation) involved. Whether oceanside at Ditch Plains in Montauk or on the freespirited shores of Tulum, King has her perfect day down pat, beginning with breakfast tacos, a run and a surf lesson, followed by wine, cheese and a sweatshirt at sunset. "I love the feeling of the salt on my skin," she says, "It always makes me look and feel a little sexier." Her expertly assembled beach look doesn't hurt either:
