French Riviera, a piece of paradise within a few hours flight if you’re based in Europe. The most gorgeous region to spend your summer in, where you have something as relaxing as Nice and something as wild as Saint Tropez. Extremely beautiful, extremely popular and extremely stylish, this is the region of dreamy Côte d’Azur.
When Monaco or Cannes are being mentioned, I only can think of a beautiful Grace Kelly in her silk scarf on the head, driving in a cabriolet like in the movies. Back to reality.. you can still try to channel this classic look if you wish and I’d approve.
Another version for the coast dressing is anything with stripes on the top and navy on the bottom (or better no bottoms at all), but that’s too cliché and you don’t want to be so while in South of France.
As I have written in my previous article about dressing in hot weather, I’m staying true to my words and repeating again how great the white colour is. Bright white, off white, cream white, any other white, give it all to me in the summer. Of course, it requires a lot of attention and hand wash, but there are some good points too. Not only it’s refreshing, elegant and chic, but it also helps to show your tan better (I’m out of this game since I don’t tan), you just need to be careful with the products you put on your body. Also, even the simple poplin dress will look great as long as it’s clean and tidy, white colour looks really expensive in itself.
White is pretty but being dressed head-to-toe in white screams look at me, it’s my wedding to me. Not cool. Unless, of course, it actually is your wedding or if you have to follow dress code to White Sensation party. Play with accessories, being in such a gorgeous place on Earth as French Riviera, requires nothing less than accessories that are in your face, just not crazy in your face. Choose high heels if you’re comfortable with walking in them, pack them sparkly or in unusual shapes, take the bags that are gorgeous and totally impractical, bring the big hats that are, of course, impossible to pack in any of the suitcases, wear the sunglasses that are in different than black colours or different than aviator shapes, play with the accessories as much as you can, cause, frankly, you arrived.
Luxury destinations don’t always require luxury outfits and clothes that could break a bank. It’s more than possible to recreate these looks with high street clothing, however, I prefer to play around and create these outfit inspirations using the designer creations. At the end of the day, high street is just a copy of another great designer work. And I love it! But a girl can dream.
