One of the most beautiful scenes in life is a sunset. Watching the sun set beyond a horizon is a spectacular event. Undeniably, the best place to view this sight is in Tuscany, Italy. The combination of the setting sun and warm colors with the architecture of the villages of Tuscany has inspired a staple color palette present in many homes around the world. The warmth and beauty of the Tuscan countryside is known for its various hues of brick reds, deep oranges and peachy pinks. The romantic vibes of the town would make anybody fall in love!
Speaking of love, a Tuscan-inspired ensemble is a perfect way to make anyone fall in love with your style. Fashionistas, it’s time for summer romance under the Tuscan sun!
To my surprise, I got a whiff of Tuscany outside the library this week. I discovered this Fashionista channeling Tuscany, Italy with her burnt orange maxi dress. The flowing nature of the dress immediately conjured an image of a goddess in my mind. I absolutely adored how her dress outlined the contours of her stunning shape. The dress also had a slimming and elongating effect as maxi dresses typically do. This Tuscan goddess definitely made my day!
As with any Tuscan palette, there are neutral colors. I loved how this Fashionista used white and brown with her accessories to accent her burnt orange dress. This diva achieved balance in her ensemble through her white and brown Kenneth Cole Reaction tote bag. I discovered through some research that her tote was made from Saffiano leather, another Italian staple. Her white sandals also dabbled into the Tuscan color scheme as an accent. In particular, I enjoyed the rose gold colored studs placed on the sandals’ straps. The dash of rose gold gave her outfit a flash of luxury.
How To: Are you looking for romance this summer? Channel Italy, the love capital of the world, with a Tuscan color theme.
