Italian Dream – The Amalfi Coast Style Sheet

Visiting the Amalfi Coast feels like stepping back in time to an era only once seen in movies. With winding streets, jagged cliff edges and the scent of lemons wherever you turn it’s no wonder this drop in the Mediterranean is such a summer hotspot. Locals like to dress well yet give an air of effortless cool, after all when you’re bathing in emerald waters and strolling historic streets who wants to be overdressed?

Aria di Bari

Gelato-shaded houses fill the streets of the coastline so much so that, pretty colors certainly don’t go unnoticed in this haven. The Saloni Bella Floral Print Midi Dress, ideal for a lunch date is light and breathable due to its feminine style, while the slim vertical detailing gives the illusion of pleating for added texture. Wear yours with the Prada Floral Appliqued Patent Leather Sandals, set atop a comfortable block heel that bode well for the uneven paving. Their girly pluming flowers fall delicately across the front for an extra summery feel.

Inspired by colors of the glistening coastline, the men’s Jacquemus Chemise Simon Printed Cotton-Poplin Shirt featuring wheat sheaf can be worn freely. Wear it unbuttoned in the sea breeze or smarten up over the Thom Browne Low Rise Trousers with an all over stripe print for a relaxed silhouette come sundown. Dreamy days by the water can still be a stylish affair with the Jacquemus Pecher Striped Swimshorts that feature cuffed hems and a mid-low rise waist. If there is one thing the local Italians do well with very little effort is their choice of shoes. A modern take on the classic loafer, the Bally Plank Loafers are crafted from pebbled leather with elasticized trimming that makes them easy to slip on and off for a quick dip.

Moi Contre La Vie

Basking under the Italian sun is a simple yet stylish affair, providing you pack the right things. The Nina Belted Polka-Dot one piece by Solid and Striped is figure hugging and clinches in at the waist for a seductive finish. Throw over the Adriana Degreas Embroidered Robe with a tie waist ideal to cover up for their seafood lunch or lounging coast side. Complete your Amalfi Coast day look with the Kate Young Cat-Eye sunglasses for a vintage aesthetic and the Staud Moreau Leather Bag. Featuring a knotted macrame exterior, this bag evokes summer wherever you go.
