How do they do it? Carefree, confident and rocking the perfect look every time, a fashion girl has a firm grip on the latest trends, and more often than not, what’s oozing timeless classic as well. So how do the rest of us keep up and join the True Fashionista crowd? Besides shopping on a regular basis at a certain consignment store, Naples, and trolling Instagram nonstop, we’ll lay it out with the following handy list.
Easter has come and gone and that means only one thing ‘round these parts: socks are history — it’s time to plan on some True Fashionista finds from Naples’ best designer consignment store for all things sandals and summer.
There’s a growing chance that we’ll be seen out and about much more this summer than last. Breathing a collective sigh of relief, the designer community embraced the feeling in their True Fashionista seasonal creations viewed in limited-seating and virtual runway shows back in December. We’re ready to live the result now, quite possibly without a mask to match (yay).
As we do the deep dive into summer (already hitting temps in the 90’s here in Naples, FL, home of True Fashionistas Resale, the area’s best designer consignment store), we’re eyeing our summer outfits, and that means: accessorizing!

Straight from Pantone courtesy of WWD come the most anticipated True Fashionista color trends to know about this fall. Thanks to vaccines, there is an undeniable air of hope and optimism abounding for ‘21, and fashion is happy to reflect it in street style and more. Back in December, as Layla Lichi reported, Pantone revealed that Illuminating — a bright yellow hue — and Ultimate Gray are its 2021 Colors of the Year, as both represent unity, stability and hope. Perhaps Pantone Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman put it best, “When the gray clouds disperse, we see the sunshine.” Aside from these two, several energetic colors stood out on the Fall ’21 runways, like a denim, close to sky-looking blue, gorgeous greens, a proper brown in outerwear, fiery reds and luscious auburns and comforting beiges.
