Embracing the skinny scarfs and cropped pants trend on my trip to the beautiful Ionian Island, Corfu. There are no words to describe this beautifull city. Colonial architecture, beautiful parks, historic fortresses and clean majestic beaches.
I know everybody talks about summer in the Greek Islands but it’s definitely worth visiting Corfu, located in the Ionian Islands, during Fall… even Winter, if you don’t mind just looking at the sea, instead of swimming and enjoying the amazing scenery wearing a coat instead of a swimsuit.
Historically, Corfu’s roots go back to the 8th century BC and to the Byzantine period. The old town is incredible. From the 15th century, Corfu was under Venetian rule for some four centuries, then passing to French, British and finally to Greek governments.
The historic building you see in the pictures is “Nobile Teatro di San Giacomo”, designed by an unknown architect, situated next to the Catholic Cathedral San Giacomo. It is constructed from carved Siniotic stone with lavish decorations and baroque sculptures.
Today the building serves as the Town Hall of Corfu. The construction of the building started in 1663 but in 1720 it was transformed into a Theatre and became the first modern theatre to be established in Greece, with European specifications. A lot of legendary operas and plays were staged here. The theatre was replaced by the Municipal Theatre of Corfu in 1902. The Municipal Theatre and its historical archives, many of which belonged to Teatro di San Giacomo, were destroyed during a Luftwaffe bombing raid in 1943 (You can read more here)
In this part of the old Corfu town, are some very nice restaurants but my favorite is La Cucina. I go there every time I visit the Island. Those of you who follow TrendSurvivor @Instgram, might have seen the yummy Exotica avocado and shrimp salad I posted, recently.
Back to fashion small talk, as I told you in my previous post, three style shavvy ways to wear a skinny scarf, I am elevating my everyday style with this polka dot skinny scarf.
Cropped pants are around some time now, I have this cropped pants from last year, but how to wear trousers cut above the ankle this Fall? Statement shoes is usually the answer. Also, wear a fitted jumper or top tucked into your trousers to keep the balance in your outfit and look taller. You can find more tips in this Vogue article.
