Something When In Rome
"I love italian fashion- the sense of style that italians have as apart of their DNA. Nobody like them." ~Sonam Kapoor
Salve! Bonjourno, and welcome to yet another post about fashion and style. This post will be all about my fashion ventures while in Rome and how you can take your small traveled wardrobe, pick up a few pieces and instantly became apart of the Italian fashion realm. On that note lets just dive into "Something When In Rome." Italian fashion culture from what I observed is very elegant, simplistic and timeless. As many of your favorite designer such as Louis Vuitton, Giuseppe Zanotti, Gucci, PINK, Prada, Christian Louboutin, Etro, Salvatore Ferragamo just to name a few have original home fronts, the Italian look of elegance and class came as no surprise. A city filled with long earth toned coats, platform sneakers and oxfords, white button down blouses, designer handbags, shoes and clothing made from genuine stock; it would inspire the least stylist person you know to wake up and get dressed. One of my favorite designers at the moment is still Gucci so my nose was wide open to all those that wore it or those whose looks were inspired by the brand. Taking a look at my look above I obviously was one of those people; I have traveled and lived internationally before, so I only bought a select few pieces of clothing with me as I knew I would do a lot of shopping. However, I really could not wait to get to Rome so I could "Do as the Romans Do" and adapt to their fashion trends and styles. Every italian I came into contact with owned a pair of these Adida shell toes. They call they "Superstars"; and they wear them with everything. Dresses, shorts, jeans, dress pants etc. They dress so simplistically, nothing they were was to loud, but it is well made. So to put my skills to the test, I proceeded to dress as the Italians did, by purchasing a Gucci inspired shirt with the red and blue strips on the sleeve, wearing a very basic pair of jeans, pairing it with my red Ferragamo belt, my "Superstars" and letting my hair flow as it pleased. The look was a clean hit, everyone loved it, even the people of the city of Rome.So if you ever go out of the country and want to adapt to their fashion culture, just observe the top three pieces that you see the majority of that city to wear, tie it in with your own style and see how it turns out! I had an amazing time in Rome, and I definitely have lots of looks to bring to you!
