This has to be my ultimate travel wardrobe and the ultimate travel destination for that matter! This recent campaign for Louis Vuitton, shot on the Isle of Capri screams absolute luxury. Everything from the silk scarves to the sunglasses, shoes and handbags are elegant and glamorous.The model is sun kissed and gorgeous and the whole thing makes me feel like jumping on a plane and taking off to somewhere romantic on the Amalfi coast. I would hire a little 1960's Alfa Spider, put my husband at the wheel and we would wind our way down the coastline exploring the colourful villages along the way!
Navy and white with a splash of red is such a classic, all time combination ... always stylish .... always polished! Perfect for coastal living and seaside holidays - it's all time favourite for both fashion and interior colour schemes. You can never go wrong with navy and white as it always looks fresh and never goes out of fashion.
Blue and white stripes always make a bold statement, fun and jaunty it adds a sense of whimsy to any outfit. It's an equally wining combination in cotton knits, jersey dresses and tops, swimwear and upholstery fabrics. Follow in the footsteps of Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Seberg and the French fashion designers and step out in some chic French stripes this summer!
La Dolce Vita
When planning your next travel wardrobe take a cue from Bridgette Bardot in the fifties. She always looked chic and stylish with the perfect summer wardrobe for the French Riviera or anywhere on the Mediterranean coast. Think slim fit capri pants, striped boat necked three quarter tops, fitted floral sundresses, ballet flats, head scarves and big sunglasses. As you can see from this recent Marie Claire fashion spread the look is as relevant and sexy today as it was fifty years ago!
