abstract: Summer vacations: tell me which beach you're going to and I'll give you the right look to flaunt.
Thank goodness - it's almost time to pack your suitcases for the beach! Which "beach look" to choose? It depends on your destination! Some advice to follow.
#Brazil: Have you caught "Carioca mood" and "Soccer World Cup fever"? Green light for streams of colors, floral and tropical prints, starting with your bikini and ending with your sarong, sundresses and bags, with beach accessories that add that special finishing touch. Green and yellow (like the flag) are fundamental colors, with perhaps a touch of blue in honor of our country. Carpisa's Summer Collection offers the Vissia bag, made of tropical flower fantasy-print canvas and available in styles from exotic to super-summery. Or there's Quieta, in backpack and shopping bag versions, made from very lively and colorful floral print nylon. And Annabella, shiny with flower prints in different shades of blue, uniting the national orchid symbol of South America with the national color of Italy.
#Greece: Sea blue, white, rope and striped pattern. These are the "musts" to wear in Greece and on its fabulous islands. Carpisa's Uranio bags are perfect, made from pinstriped sailor style canvas with a straw bottom and rope shoulder strap. Available in various tones of turquoise, Cuzia is also made from striped straw, making it perfect for the beach and small white and blue villages. And Carina, glamorous and young (ideal for Santorini and Mikonos), is made from braided blue plastic with cloth flowers and raffia bows.
#Sicily: Baroque style. In red, coral and turquoise. The typical Mediterranean look from marvelous Sicily is linked to radiance and inspires passion and femininity. You can tote around the straw Celeste basket bag, designed by Carpisa, available in natural color straw with contrasting red and wood-decorated handles to give a refined ethno-chic touch. Veneranda is also made of natural color braided straw, but with pieces of multicolor fuchsia or turquoise interwoven to create an ideal beach-glamour style.
#Capri: Don't want to give up elegance and charm even for the summer? Capri is the destination vacation spot for you. And, naturally, your beach outfits won't be less classy or tasteful. The perfect accessories? Big diva sunglasses, darling flat sandals adorned with shiny stones and crystals and, inevitably, refined beach bags. Check out Carpisa's Turi line of refined straw beach bags covered in black or fuchsia multicolor Art-Deco fabric. Also made of straw, Carpisa offers Fosca, with handles and bows made of elegant and sophisticated ethnic print fabric. Straw hats from Carpisa's Sunny line are fundamental, coming in blue, white and beige, with large or medium brims, or visor style.
#Africa: Warm colors, desert sand and gold hues. Welcome to Africa! A magical, fascinating and magnetic land. Your look will have to do justice to this territory's pure beauty. Animal print and ethnic trimmings are musts to be matched with themed accessories. Try Carpisa's Corinna bag, made from braided plastic with ethnic motifs and a wood button fastening. Or there's Tiziana, made from striped straw in brown, orange and beige tones, giving it that warm "easy-wear" feel.
More Summery than this …
