Are you a fashionista? It’s easy to get sucked into the world of high fashion. But here’s the tricky part: how do you actually dress well? Putting the perfect outfit together is truly a work of art.
Fashion requires the perfect amount of skill and inspiration — with some knowledge and passion thrown in there.
If you’re looking for fashion role models, there’s no better place to turn to than Italy.
Aside from its history and pizza, Italy is known as one of the fashion capitals of the world. And if you look at the way Italian women dress, you’ll understand why Italian fashion is one of the best in the world.
Here’s how to dress like an Italian woman.
Always Dress Amazing — No Matter What
We tend to dress up for nice occasions and walk out in scrubs while running errands. But Italian women make it a point to dress their best, no matter the occasion.
They will wear a tailored blazer with brand name jeans to the store during the day and a designer dress for dinner.
Now, you don’t have to go all out while running errands. But a pair of skinny jeans and a comfy jacket looks better than yoga pants and that old tank top.
Dress Your Age
Whether you’re an 18-year old who recently started clubbing or a 50-year-old grandma, dressing well is all about being age appropriate.
The 50-year-old shouldn’t be wearing a clubbing dress. An 18-year-old could dress in office professional style — but outside of their internship, they probably won’t.
This is the Italian secret of dressing well: dressing your age. You’ll see the teenagers and twenty-something gals being creative with makeup and opting for modern and hip fashion designers.
But you’ll see women in their 30’s and 40’s wearing more conservative outfits while still looking bold with perfect hair and polished nails.
Wear Designer Brands Whenever Possible
The designers are the staple of Italian fashion. Brands such as the Italian fashion label Gucci are everywhere. You can’t walk on the streets of Rome or Milan without seeing these shops everywhere you look.
So splurge a little and wear these brands and styles whenever you can.
But don’t look “too designer.” This is also something Italian women avoid. You don’t want to look like a showroom gala or a runway model. In other words, don’t only pair bold pieces.
You could sport a bold statement sweater but pair it with some subtle diamond earrings and a basic pair of designer sunglasses.
Start Dressing Like an Italian Woman
An Italian woman is the epitome of high-fashion. Not only are they beautiful but they embody the latest trends and have the most amazing style. But if you look closely, mimicking their fashion choices isn’t difficult.
Some common sense rules apply, such as dressing your age. But you should always dress amazing and squeeze in as many name brands as you can.
