The wish list of a young Neapoli­tan trend­set­ter: the lat­est trends and fash­ions in Naples

One of the most en­chant­ing des­ti­na­tions to cel­e­brate Easter is the Isle of Capri, a per­fect mi­cro­cosm of Mediter­ranean ap­peal where sum­mer never seems to end. Con­sid­ered one of the most beau­ti­ful is­lands in the world and the favourite haunt of stars and VIPs, in­clud­ing one in par­tic­u­lar from whom I have drawn in­spi­ra­tion to cre­ate the ideal out­fit for the be­gin­ning of spring: Jackie Onas­sis, an icon of style and the ideal ref­er­ence for my April wish list.

Let’s start from the “bot­tom down­wards”, from her soft white el­e­gant, slightly flared trousers. As much as you love a vin­tage look, I, per­son­ally, would sug­gest a more mod­ern take on the lat­ter. For a more con­tem­po­rary out­ing, I would sug­gest that you wear a pair of nar­rower, tight-fit­ting cig­a­rette trousers paired with a chic pair of ei­ther Tods, or bal­leri­nas. Shoes that, un­like san­dals, are much more ap­pro­pri­ate for this time of the year.

To tap into this lazy, pre-sum­mer vibe, I sug­gest wear­ing a soft silk shirt over these light cot­ton trousers. Opt for one of this sea­son’s gor­geous pas­tel shades – you can’t go wrong and you’ll def­i­nitely be right on trend. In terms of ac­ces­sories, I would like to re­vert to my icon Jackie, known and ad­mired for her chic hall­mark over-sized sun­glasses: Gucci, Prada or Dolce & Gab­bana are just some of this sea­son’s sig­na­ture brands. Add an edgy touch to your out­fit by sport­ing an eye- catch­ing cash­mere scarf (Her­mes, no less). Drape a mixed linen and cot­ton cardi­gan over your shoul­ders dur­ing the day to guard against any sud­den un­ex­pected gusts of chilly spring wind. Fi­nally, to round off the whole, for a cool girl look, why not in­dulge in a large beige leather maxi-bag, pos­si­bly a Prada!

A re­turn to the past to cre­ate a per­fect spring Capri-in­spired look. On the other hand, on an is­land whose beauty ap­pears to re­main time­less, so does fash­ion. In my mind, “past” vin­tage el­e­gance is never likely to dis­ap­point.

Happy Easter!
