Let's Go Away...To St Tropez

This summer, capture the spirit of all that is glamorous by seeking inspiration from 1960's St Tropez. This French gem of a town has long been a magnet for the rich and fabulous, most famously the quintessential sex kitten, Brigitte Bardot. Bardot made fashion waves on sea and land, sporting itty-bitty bikinis on Riva motorboats, and floppy hats and strappy sandals while lounging at cafes. Whether you are luxuriating at the beach or hitting the city sidewalks during your next holiday, reuse the looks that BB made so memorable by sporting 60's inspired luxury leisure-wear that will make your summer as shiny and shimmery as it should be.Borrow ideas from Chanel's beyond cool 2009 Resort collection in classic dresses, flared trousers, plaited headbands and timeless hats. Take time to embrace your inner French bombshell by soaking up the rays in a vintage inspired two piece, (like the Calvin Klein beaut featured above.) Strap on a pair of espadrilles, and be sure to demand a new speedboat with every summer fling-just as Brigitte did.

PS Those who are on the other side of the world and rugging up for winter, stay tuned!
