Behold Italian fashion editor Viviana Volpicella, who always looks so chic and effortless as can be, even while wearing basics. Here, she’s caught strolling around in a what looks like a well-loved hand-knit sweater, man-style white linen trousers and all her cool accessories. Before we get into it, if you’re into her long coral bead necklace with a gold pendant, and you’re into a DIY project, you can buy a strand of these and a gold clasp and make your own. Ok, so let’s get to it!
Her sweater looks like a pricey hand-knit number, but this simple A.P.C. version and this one from Jenni Kayne would both work.Viviana’s trousers are just right for spring/summer, but since it snowed like crazy in New York this week, I propose these more weather-appropriate ones in more of an eggshell for now.
Her belt is refined with a leather covered buckle and would work with so many other pants.I noticed that Viviana often accessorizes with a totally affordable, old-school red bandana just like this — you can twist it and wear it loose like she does, wrap it tighter around the neck or even use it as a headband.
And I love that she goes for the super classic Ray Ban Wayfarers instead of a super glam choice.
If you squint you can make out her blue-green cabochon pendant peeking out from under her bandana. This cute hand-carved jade heart from Ten Thousand Things gives off the same vibe, and makes the perfect layering piece.
