WHERE NAPLES’ WISH LIST
The wish-list of a young Neapolitan trendsetter who is always on top of the fashion game in Naples
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.
