The result is a minimalistic, simple, sleek, and relaxed look like the one worn below by "The King of Cool" himself, Steve McQueen in the late 60s. A timeless and versatile summer look. Add a dandy touch by wearing a light colored double breasted jacket.

Perhaps Saint Laurent was Marrakech's most loyal visitor because ever since his first visit to the "Red City" in 1966 he came back constantly. Yet this wasn't enough for him, and therefore he bought a house and the famed Majorelle Garden afterwards.
Marrakech and Morocco were an inspiration source for Yves Saint Laurent. A proof of this can be found on the tunics, turbans, Fez hats, and colors he incorporated on his collections during the 70s and 80s.
Below a photo of Yves Saint Laurent at some impressive settings that was probably taken during his first visit to Marrakech. His good taste and elegance are evident with his combination of white pants, a black shirt with epaulets, an original belt, mocassins, and rectangular sunglasses.

In these last years, especially this Spring/Summer, "color blocking" has become a trend and with it the return of eye catching color combinations. The key of success in "color blocking" is pairing a warm/vibrant color with a dark/subdued color, creating a balanced contrast. Yet 2 vibrant colors can be paired as well. Mix neon with sandy tones, neon with black etc, let your creativity do its part.

From his navy blue sweaters worn on Hyannis Port to his impeccable suits, John F. Kennedy always gave a lesson of style. Below a photo that shows in my opinion the most stylish and elegant ensemble worn by JFK circa 1962; a blue blazer paired with a white shirt, skinny tie, pocket square, white pants, black shoes, and tortoise Wayfarers. Pure class and perfection!

Mrs. Kennedy met Gianni & Marella Agnelli while in Ravello, giving the 3 of them a lesson of style. Below a photo that shows Jackie and Gianni strolling on Ravello's harbor wearing white ensembles, a basic Summer color. Worth noticing is Agnelli's white long sleeved shirt, one might think it was a bad option for the hot weather on the Amalfi Coast, yet it's protective of the sun's rays.
