Upgrade your denim look à la Carolina Molossi
The Italian fashion entrepreneur knows how to elevate an everyday outfit.
A former philosophy major and now co-founder of a fashion tech startup, Carolina Molossi’s style is as eclectic as her background. But although we love all of her style ventures, it’s Molossi’s love for simple, yet genius denim looks that has us returning to her Instagram feed.
Catching up with Carolina Molossi in Milan, we asked her to share some of that style wisdom – see how she wears her current H&M favourites in the slideshow above.
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
”A good balance between basics and eccentric pieces.”
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNER?
”Miuccia Prada is always my favourite, but I’m also a Phoebe Philo enthusiast and a Marni fan!”
WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON?
”Jane Birkin is a classic, and I’m currently obsessed with Linda Rodin: I love her ageless style.”
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
”Playa Mitjorn in Formentera, a tiny Balearic island that stole my heart when I was a kid.”

IF YOU HAD TO LEAVE YOUR APARTMENT IN A HURRY, WHAT WOULD YOU GRAB?
”Lip balm, phone, passport and my camera.”
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO LOOK?

WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?
”Every morning, we must choose how we want to present ourselves to the world, and even if you don’t care about fashion you’re still making choices every day. I believe those choices say a little something about all of us. I love to guess people’s personalities, by looking at their outfits. And I like to potentially be able to tell a different story every day, through my clothes.”

”Shoes, I’m so difficult with them! And white t-shirts, I’ll never have enough of them. Still on the hunt for the perfect one.”
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET?
”Every philosopher I studied at Uni.”
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
”A spa day and a good trip.”
WHAT IS YOUR LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?
”That dry body brushes and scrubs can do wonders!”
