Italy is a country in which police uniforms are designed by Giorgio Armani and “La Bella Figura” is a way of life. Looking good and having an eye for aesthetics is a national obsession in Italy. Walking down the street of Rome during our honeymoon, I enjoyed the elegant, expressive and sensual way Italians dress. In my opinion, the most stylish people of Europe! The German way of dressing is too practical, the English too eccentric and try-hard and the French can be too made-up at times. Italian style is the perfect balance between casual nonchalance and elegance.
Above picture: “Discretion is the opposite of vulgarity” – Giorgio Armani. This stylish Roman lady does effortless chic in simple grey trousers, black shirt, jewelled ballet flats and a timeless Kelly Tote bag, cycling near Corso d’Italia.
Whilst in Rome, I mostly looked dishevelled and exhausted from heat. Not so this trendy Roman: She oozes relaxed elegance in a nude coloured Maxi skirt and casual, off-the-shoulder Breton shirt while chilling near Piazza Navona. Viva Italia!
Monochrome, block stripes were a big hit this summer at Dolce & Gabbana. This lady nailed the look with her horizontally striped top combined with a vertically striped puffy skirt and sandal wedges. Bellisima!
The young fashion pack triumphs in red coloured skinny jeans, Cool Britannia helmet and sporty Nikes.
The lady in the green could be a flower child from the 70s with her turqoise rings, headband and long artisan earrings and necklace.
