Whenever I visit certain countries I like to dress and try and plan my outfits around their whole vibe and culture. I only noticed I liked to do this after coming back from one of my most favourite places yet – Venice.
I love to explore and learn about the culture when I am visiting other countries. Especially their fashion culture. I find it fascinating how each country differentiates and expresses their own individuality when it comes to fashion.
Italy is one of the leading countries in fashion design, and Italians are well known for their attention to detail and dressing up well “la bella figura” or good impression is traditional in the Italian way of living. Italian fashion was mainly designed for the rich and famous, however in the 1970′s-80′s Italian fashion started to concentrate on ready-to-wear clothes, such as jeans, jumpers and miniskirts. Becoming more affordable and stylish for shoppers.
Realising this, obviously I wanted to live up to that. However here’s a tip from me to you: You don’t have to dress from head to toe in designers to look good, money talks yes, but style doesn’t have to.
As you can see in my pictures I picked some classic staple pieces – over sized sunnies, ankle black suede boots, and I also incorporated colour and leather, which to me always screams class. Also by adding accessories to an outfit you give that extra touch sometimes to ‘complete’ the look. But don’t over do it.
Never stop learning about the world you live in…. <3
