You, Me and Capri: Style Guide
We have this undying love affair with the Southern coast of Italy -- the infamous Amalfi coast ... home to some of the most precious hidden treasures. And if you've been to this little slice of heaven, we're sure you'll understand why. There is an insouciant energy that emanates from the entire coast, and a joie de vivre that fills the air. The food is orgasmic, the views -- stunning, and the people -- warm and embracing. While any of the towns off the Amalfi Coast are awe-inspiring, Capri is definitely one that stands out. If you plan to visit this side of the world on your upcoming getaway, read ahead. We're telling you what to expect and most importantly, how to dress to impress -- whether frolicking in the day, or romancing at night. Enjoy!

Capri is located in the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrento Peninsula (and Sorrento is a little hidden treasure of its own fame). Known for luxurious escapades across the ocean, picture-perfect beaches, and beautiful seascapes, Capri has long been a coveted playground for the connected quaintrelle. And ladies, trust us -- you will want to look fabulous on this trip. Capri just has that effect on you. So we're breaking down looks by day and night. Because ... we care *wink*.

BY DAY...OUTFITS WITH AMPHIBIAN SENSIBILITIES THAT CAN TRANSITION FROM WATER TO LAND WITH EASE WILL SERVE YOU WELL.
By day, you'll be strolling around the beautiful town, lounging on umbrella-lined beaches or luxuriating on a boat deck with views of the iconic faraglioni. Comfort and versatility are key. Outfits with amphibian sensibilities that can transition from water to land with ease will serve you well. Bold prints, whimsical silhouettes, straw details, floral scents and statement shades are a few of the ingredients for a perfect day look on magic island. Think 100% island vibes, but with a splash of posh.
BY NIGHT, AS YOU ARE WINED AND DINED, PERCHED ON A 5-STAR BALCONY...WHEN THE TOWN'S LIGHTS ILLUMINATE THE COASTLINE, YOU'LL WANT TO BE SHINNING AS WELL.
By night, you will be draped on a hillside at one of the many epic restaurants, overlooking the ocean, with Picasso-like sunset views you can almost touch. You'll want to maintain an easy, breezy Island vibe, elevated with statement accessories and more dramatic makeup. It goes without saying that bronzer is a must. As you are wined and dined, perched on a 5-star balcony on the glittery coast, when the shimmer of the town's lights illuminate the coastline, you'll want to be shinning as well. If Paris is the city for lovers, Capri is the island for romance. If you are there with your special someone, you'll want to feel flirty and beautiful. You'll want to give those coastline views a run for their money.
We hope you'll take a trip to this dream Island. And if you do, be sure to share your pictures and outfits with us!
