Ready to level up? Tie it around your neck, either loosely draped, or quite tight. I’ve positioned it with the knot to the side to create the illusion of a longer neck. Double wrap it if you prefer a smaller knot. Move it to the front to conceal a too-low neckline.
A scarf can also serve as an effective belt, too, looped through the waistband of a pair of jeans, or to define the waist of a flowy dress.
On holiday, I like to tie it around my head in the style of Brigitte Bardot, depending on my mood. A pair of gold hoop earrings and salty hair completes the bohemian vibe.
Of course, if you happen to be going for a ride in a convertible, there’s only one way to wear your scarf: Grace Kelly-style, on your head, knotted beneath the chin – instant movie-star glamour, without a hair out of place.
The linen shirt below is a vintage top.
If there is a brand I adore for innovation, updated styles and high-end linen. Then it has to be Max Mara. Linen is their DNA. Linen needs to be rediscovered as a nostalgic fabric for summer. It is a shop that understands the creativity and identity of the versatility of linen.
The above is their sportswear range. It felt and looked very funky. Below is more of a traditional capsule collection.
Classic Linen Shirt
Trending on Tik Tok is the Coastal Grandmother linen collection. Asking your parents or grandparents for vintage linen will allow you to rediscover that linin shirts like those below are timeless classics.
They team well with linen trousers or like what I am wearing today denim bling shorts. I can swim at the seaside and then browse the boutiques on my bike without compromising my beach style.
Colourful linen looks fabulous in summer. When touring the Italian streets of Tuscany. An oversized linen dress is super chic and comfortable to wear all day long near the seaside.
They are wonderful to trend on one’s Tik Tok account.
Linen prints are very popular this season here in Italy. When touring cities like Venice linen is super comfortable for travel and walking in the soaring summer heat.
Team, a linen dress with a Nike trainer goes hand in hand.
From Yves Saint Laurent to Dolce & Gabbana. A straw bag is a brilliant accessory for summer. Effortless and robust for sand and land travel.
Straw bags always like linen are timeless. My favourite straw bag seen this year is from Valentino it is super chic.
From wooden clogs to fabric flats. Make sure you invest or good walking shoes for summer.
