1. Street Look: Fanny Staaf from Stockholm

Street Look Stockholm

Stockholm’s lifestyle blogger @fannystaaf has lived in the Swedish capital for seven years. She loves the city’s beauty, closeness to the water and down-to-earth people.

Streets of Stockholm

“I love Stockholm’s Vasastan district – where I live – and especially Rörstrandsgatan. It has some of the best restaurants, beautiful boutiques, independent shops and also my choice for the most amazing place for sweets in the whole of Sweden: the confectionery store Birkagott”

Stockholm style

“I want simple, relaxed colours that I can wear to work, for shopping or if I’m meeting friends for a chilled evening in town. This outfit feels casual, but it’s still smart and sophisticated – that’s exactly what Stockholm’s like!”

Arianna Trapani, @ariannasdaily, is a Londoner born and bred. For an unashamed foodie and fashion-lover, the capital’s got all the variety and surprises she loves. It’s a place of unique neighbourhoods where the world’s cultures and styles come together.

Café culture in London

“My parents moved to London from Italy, so I love an authentic Italian coffee. There’s a café in South Kensington called Iddu that does the best cappuccino, and on a hot summer’s day, it’s the ideal place to get a classic granita.”

Get the cool London look

“My London style is really simple and casual. I love denim dresses at the moment – they’re on trend but so comfortable. I like to keep my style minimalist, so I stick with classic accessories. A hat is an absolute must-have; something that can cope with a shower of rain!”

3. Street Look: Saray Martin from Barcelona

Style blogger Saray Martin, @dansvogue, was born and raised in Barcelona. For someone who travels a lot, she’s never lost her love of the vibrant Catalan capital city. Barcelona has so much to offer: the sea, an incredible history, an amazing art scene and unstoppable urban fashion.

Exploring Barcelona’s architecture

“One of my favourite places is the Gothic Quarter – I find its history so moving and inspiring. I can spend hours looking round all the antique shops, museums, galleries and some of the old convent buildings that are hidden away – there are some amazing stories there.”

Comfortable Barcelona style

“I feel most relaxed in simple, comfortable outfits that have a touch of style to them. I tend to wear an elegant pair of flats, and I sometimes choose a more close-fitting skirt or a halterneck top. My favourite part of the whole outfit is this tote. It works for a day at the beach, a walk through town or wherever the next adventure takes me.”

Style commentator Carlotta Rubaltelli, @styleandtrouble, lived in Rome for years and understands its unique sense of style. For her, it’s a place of sun, classical architecture and picturesque villas. For food lovers, it has a culinary culture like no other.

The best views in Rome

“I love the peacefulness of Roman villas. My favourite place is the Giardino degli Aranci on the Aventino. It’s a gorgeous park, named after its orange trees; Rome looks so beautiful from up there. I go to relax with a good book or just for a walk to clear my head, and I love meeting friends there.”

Your Rome look-book

“The Milanese famously wear black all the time, but we express ourselves with some colour – Rome’s a bright and inspiring place! This look works from breakfast to aperitivo. In summer, you need to survive the heat in style, especially if you’re on the go all day.”
