Londoner Jane Wheaton, whom I spotted at Waterside Shops, proves that a white maxi skirt is timelessly appealing.
Jane paired her skirt with a heathered grey tee, Gucci thong sandals, and Louis Vuitton bag worn cross-body, creating a classic bohemian style. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have her fit physique. To maintain it, she told me she eats a large “veggie salad” every evening, limits her sugar intake, refrains from sodas and fried food, does pilates when in England, and takes daily walks when in Naples–her family has had a second home here since 1973.
If you want to create a similar bohemian look, the key is to choose soft, simple, unconstrained pieces that gently skim the curves of the body and move easily when you walk; wear your hair loosely styled (escaping wisps are a plus); choose shoes that reveal more, rather than less of, the foot; and accessorize with a relaxed, slouchy bag. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
