How do our Italian sisters manage to look so casual yet so glamorous? In this week’s issue we take inspiration from glamour pusses Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci with our pick of stylish pieces to get their chic look.


Invest in good tailoring which fits in all the right places. A well-tailored blazer is a must to skim over hips and flatter curves, while a crisp white shirt and tailored trousers is timeless and chic.

The style code is simple: white basics for summer (team with tan and gold), black for winter (with a flash of red or animal print).

Your new signature look? Red lips, red nails and a slick of eyeliner.
