Today's featured fashion blogger has quite the background of influences. For one thing, she's Canadian born, of Italian heritage and is currently living in the U.S. She's traveled to a multitude of places around the world, and she has a background in dance (specifically ballet), opera and theater, not to mention a degree in Communications and Fine Arts.
But through all her worldly influences and variety of experiences, Chiara focuses her fashion and lifetsyle blog, Casiraghi Style on the belief that great style can be attainable for all! Browse through her collection of looks on instagram (@chiara.casiraghi), and you'll see a range of chic looks with striking solid colors and surprising prints. For a preview, check out the looks we've pulled for your perusal here.
Polka Dot Dress with Belt Bag and Sneakers
Chiara always rocks the trendiest dress brands. This polka dot dress with lightly puffed balloon sleeves is awesome as it is, but we love how Chiara added even more detail with a belt bag. The bag adds a different shape to the ensemble, creating dimension that both draws the eye and enhances the look overall.
Now, she could have easily dressed this look up for a more formal occasion, but instead she transformed it into the most awesome everyday casual look with the additions of the bag and a pair of sneakers! She also kept the jewelry simple, going with just a watch. You can dress this look up more if you want (swap out the sneakers for a pair of the most stylish sandal brands), but we're really into this as casual wear. To make it your own, play around with the colors and choose a different hairstyle if another one speaks to you.
White Swimsuit with Belt and Open Shirt
Who says your style can't be on point when you're at the pool? This white one piece swimsuit is gorgeous in its color and simplicity, and the white belt helps it stand out even more. You can play around with the style of the swimsuit to adapt this look for yourself, but we really like the white.
But that's not the only stunning part of this chic poolside outfit. Instead of opting for a traditional swimwear coverup piece, Chiara went with a long, open button-down shirt with long sleeves. It's an instant eye-catcher that will stand out among the rest of the looks around the pool this summer!
You can certainly play around with the colors of both the swimsuit and the coverup shirt to male this look truly your own, but we have to admit that we do think she was on point with just about everything involved in this outfit here. Pair this look with some wedged sandals for extra chicness.
Large Rainbow Striped Sweater with White Distressed Jeans
We're in love with this awesome sweater! Oversized pullover sweaters always look great when they come in bold prints or colors, and this sweater has both! Chiara paired it with white jeans to ensure that the colors really pop, but the white jeans here are also distressed for added detail.
Again, she keeps the accessories simple and limited to a single watch. As for footwear, a wide range would work well here. Don't be afraid to add some depth with a pair of dark shoes (a pair of brown or black booties would be an exceptionally good choice). We also see a high messy updo working well here.
