I know Alexia since university, so I really had the chance to get to know her style throughout all these years....
Despite the fact that she has travelled the globe as a Buyer -she was working for years as a Womenswear Buyer for the Greek luxury fashion retail company Carouzos- she has kept her own individual style, effortless, but still super sensual. Here are her summer essentials:
My style: I can't really describe it in one word, but I would say a mixture of casual with hippie and gipsy-rock elements. What is important to mention is that I never plan ahead my outfits; it's everything a last minute inspiration.
My top: rather simple tank tops and sleeveless vests, in basic colors and natural hues, with low cut arm-holes.
My bottom: ripped denim shorts, wide cotton trousers and maxi skirts.
My jeans: no denim trousers during summer; just ripped denim shorts.
My evening: backless maxi dresses, either in cotton or jesrey.
My swimsuit: strapless bikinis in fun colors or one-tone bikinis in black, green, nude colors with leather details. Lately, I love wearing one-piece swimsuits too. A brand I really like and we offer also in our stores is Paolita.
My watch: Always my Lady-Date, 26mm, yellow gold Rolex - a gift from my mother.
My jewelry: This season I particularly love the crystal bullets, which is our best-seller accessory in store and I like wearing more than one. Otherwise, I love everything hippie, pop/rock in many layers.
My hat: jockey caps
My hair: I love my hair to look a little messy, like they're sun-dried or windswept. Otherwise I love doing a wet look.
My lipstick: matt lipsticks in pink or nude colors by Mac.
My skin/foundation: No make-up, just some blush or bronze.
My summer vacation: I spend my last couple of summers in Antiparos island because of the stores, but I love it there!
My workout: yoga or running.
My i-pod playlist: trip hop
Bag: printed shoppers by Ripped Cotton.
Fragrance: Always the classic fragrance by Chloe.
Something that all women should have in their closet?
A black dress, a white t-shirt, a tailored jacket in black, and a pair of Converse All-star.

Do not overthink your buys. If you like something, buy it! I personally rarely try out my clothes.
