Summer is just around the corner and what a better way to celebrate than updating your wardrobe with a few key-pieces that will transform your style this season? If you're desperately looking for inspiration, then seek no more: Italians have the answer to your prayers!
Marni, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana... Almost all luxury designers are Italian-based, whereas Milan is a global fashion capital. Italian girls surely know of impeccable style; always feminine and elegant, yet glamorous and bold, they inspire the fashion world with their Mediterranean beauty and fierce character.
Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci are two excellent examples of bold Italian style: a style that embraces femininity without being provocative or extremely modest; a combination that is hard to achieve.
Every look oozes confidence, bold style, unique style and at the same time looks laid back and effortless. Statement pieces, animal prints, stylish heels, scarves, feminine pieces and vibrant colours are some of the essentials every Italian girl's wardrobe features.
To learn more about the secrets of style à l’Italienne, keep scrolling!
1. ANIMAL PRINT
Add an animal-print piece to your everyday ensembles to make them stand out of the crowd the way Italian girls do!
2. BOLD COLOURS
Invest into bold colours: red, yellow or orange are usually preferred by the Italians in both skirts and dresses since they are both feminine and ultra-chic.
Silk scarves are making a comeback this year and they so remind us of Italy! Wear them with flowy tops or as a head piece to feel like you're about to head to Capri for the weekend!
4. STATEMENT PIECES
Italians' fiery character is often translated into glamorous statement pieces: necklaces, earrings, stiletto heels – the more unique the better.
It all started with Gucci: the Italian-based designer presented the 2017 version of the loafer that almost immediately turned into a street-style favorite, especially in Milan.
Flat top, cat-eye, mirrored – whatever style you prefer, sunglasses are essential to complete any glamorous look this summer.
7. FEMININE LINES
Italian girls are the epitomy of feminine style; midi skirts, flattering corsets, silk tops and airy dresses are among their favorite pieces.
