Although if you want to have that glamour and dress like Italian women you need to invest in some simple things. Glamorous look does not include only expensive clothes and accessories. In Italy you should keep it easy, fun and cool and don't wait for some special occasions or events, just wear all your good stuff in your everyday activities.
If you like to look and feel chic and stylish, follow our tips and fashion suggestions:
Keep it easy and simple
The secret of every Italian woman is to keep it easy and simple by restricting the colors. Italians wear only two colors at a time. While black is the king in the winter, white and blue are perfect fits for the summer.
Start with the basics
In order to feel sexy and comfortable, you should always start from the inside out. The clothes that you wear under are as important as the clothes on the outside. Italy’s answer to Victoria’s Secret are La Perla and Intimissimi, which are very trendy, stylish and affordable at the same time. Silk slipper and laces are one of the delicate offers of this brand.
Always have a pair of high heels
Even on bad weather and bumpy roads, Italian women must pull off a stiletto with grace. Try to get the perfect look by trying some brands like Giuseppe Zanotti or Sergio Rossi. High heels are the perfect finish to every combination, whether it is a casual daily look or some evening glamorous event.
Never forget the statement handbag
Every stylish Italian woman must have a classic leather bag on her arms. When it comes to handbags, leather craftsmanship is a gold standard. Brands like Furla, Veneta or Bottega, may follow your taste and give you the best options.
Sunglasses – must have accessories
The final touch of every modern combination is a pair of sunglasses. Ray Ban offers a wide range of chic sunglasses for the younger generations, while Emporio Armani or Fendi offer sunglasses for more classic and serious look.
Always keep a bit of glamour in your closet
Italian women should always have a bit of extra glamour. Glitter hair accessories, sequin waistcoat or some jewelry with gemstones are must have garments because women must shine for every occasion.
However, glamorous does not always include expensive bags or heels. Sometimes all you need is a pair of perfect jeans, simple shirt, white Converse and red lipstick. Just put a smile on your face and feel the Italian spirit. Even though you may not call Rome or Milan home, if you follow these simple tips, you will always look and feel Italian.
