Italy is arguably one of the fashion capitals of the world. This week, as the world descends on Milan for the latest in fashion trends and design innovation, let’s take a look at some of the iconic fashion hitting the streets, inspiring the globe in true Italian flair.
Italy is the home of great fashion and the streets are filled with Italian flavour, creativity and designs that are ideal for fall in the southern hemisphere. We are seeing a smart casual approach to life with a playful side in vibrant prints and a love affair with stripes. Comfortable fabrics, longer length knits and stripes upon stripes are evident everywhere. Bold prints are here to stay with a move towards warmer fabrics and tones that are more fitting for the season ahead.
Hello stripes! Stripes in all directions are here to stay. Whether vertical or horizontal or a mix of both, do yourself a favour and buy a striped piece of clothing this season in true Italian style. We also love the combination of white with a different colour in a playful vertical striped skirt or dress. Velvet remains! It is one of those timeless fabrics that keep re-emerging in true luxurious style, but velvet is back this season with a burst of vibrant colours to suit the season. This plush, warmer fabric is also great for the colder European months ahead.
Embroidery This seems to be popping up everywhere, but embroidery is a definite highlight in terms of Italian street style at the moment. From detailed embroidered blouses to dresses, skirts and more, embroidery embellishments are beautiful! Sunglasses are always a good idea Any shade under the sun, sunglasses a great accompaniment to Italian street fashion. Match your glasses to your outfit or choose something contrasting to make a statement, but don’t leave home without it this season!Images Via
