The Magic of Gucci Resort 2018: A Renaissance in Florence

Featured

The Gucci Cruise 2018 show took place in Florence, Italy a few months back. Inspired by the Renaissance, Alessandro Michele showed a collection that had a little bit of everything: New logo shirts and jeans for the ladies. A men’s must-have sweater that read Guccy across the front (sure to be spotted on every street style star worth her salt in Instagram followers.) Jogger pants, fanny packs, gold sequin capes. Red carpet-worthy Grecian-inspired gowns, bold palazzo pants, signature stripe cardigans, a logo-stamped fur coat—the list is long. After all, there were more than 100 looks!

“I styled my pants with the matching sweater top for a quintessentially Gucci Girl ensemble”

How to Dress like a Parisian

Featured

Effortlessly chic by nature, nonchalantly elegant in approach, Parisian women win hands down in the style stakes. Parisian fashionistas develop a signature look, and stick with it. They might update their wardrobe with a few trends, but they always stick to a similar aesthetic. Break down the wardrobes of the French woman, and the style rules they live begin to crystalize. Forgo a trendy embellished sweatshirt for a perfectly fitted LBD dress you’ll wear for years, for one. Invest in a few classic luxury items, like a Hermès Kelly, knowing it will ultimately be a value spread over time. And above all, work to perfect a unique style all your own, because half the battle when it comes to dressing well is feeling good in what you are wearing.

“When in doubt, ask yourself what a modern Coco Chanel would wear! She redefined the way that women dressed in the early 20th century, but the look that Coco Chanel created is just as significant today”

How to Dress Like an Italian Bombshell

If New York women have mastered power dressing and Parisians have effortless elegance down to a science, then Italian women should be credited with excelling at dressing like bombshells, and oozing with easygoing sex appeal—the kind that has you do a double take and wonder “did she wake up like that?”

After visiting Italy almost every Summer as a child and teenager, I’ve realized that most of Italian women always look put-together, even when they’re just heading to the grocery store (their ability to practically run along the cobblestone streets in the highest of heels continues to impress me). To get the look, you’ll have to invest in a few things: A chic pair of stilettos, a dress with the just right amount of va-va-voom—a la Sophia Loren, THE Italian glamour girl, and sexy – yet smart -accessories such as a pair of statement gloves, a beautiful handbag, or playful baroque detailed costume jewelry. Build outfits starting with a statement piece—be it sassy stilettos, gloves, or to-die-for chandelier earrings—and go from there.

“Some of my favorite Italian style-setters know the secret to any great outfit is starting with a statement piece, and then building an outfit around it”
