Welcome to Newport Stylephile, lifestyle blog that celebrates the Newport, Rhode Island way of life. From the runway to local boutiques, designer interviews, national trends, deals and steals to where and what’s hot, you’ll find the scoop here.
Newport is more than just one of the most storied cities in the country; it’s a state of mind. It’s crisp white pants paired with a French boat neck top replete with navy nautical stripes. It’s sipping a Dark n’ Stormy on a hot summer day overlooking the sea. It’s embracing the salt water spray that dots your ensemble from an afternoon sail spent perched on the bow of a boat and asking, ‘Is there anywhere else in the world I’d rather be?’ (The answer, of course, is no.)
There’s a reason why Newport’s inspired style has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair and other top magazines, but we’re more than just canvas totes, anchor embellishments and boat shoes. Enjoy the blog, which has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Rhode Island Monthy’s RI Daily, GoLocalProv.com and The Rhode Show, and post your feedback and let us know what treasures you uncover in the City-by-the-Sea!
