Italy: the land of Gucci, Prada and Versace. Needless to say, style is taken very seriously here. Sneakers? A major fashion faux pas. Short shorts? Another no-no, unless you want to be heckled by Italian men. Many American students studying in Florence try to blend in with the natives by wearing neutral colors and comfortable materials such as cotton.
Although a maxi skirt is not an Italian trend, this Fashionista’s outfit is ideal for every day wear in the city of Florence. Her skirt is a staple in many American tourists’ wardrobes this fall due to its casual yet comfortable nature. It looks chic and it is loose enough to walk around the city. The slit up the side gives her the ability to show off her toned legs and summer tan before it fades in the coming weeks. Due to its length, maxi skirts have the ability to be worn in the fall, as well.
This Fashionista definitely packed a variety of staples in her suitcase. Her white crop top is a blank palette which can be paired with a medley of different bottoms whether it be jeans, high-waisted shorts or leather pants. The shirt’s cotton material makes it ideal for sight-seeing in the scorching Italian heat, as well. When the weather starts to get cooler, it will act as an ultimate layering piece.
Sadly, heels are not commonly worn in Florence because of the bumpy cobblestone roads. This Fashionista’s black T-strap sandals can be worn day or night and are perfect for any old European street.
All in all, this Fashionista’s comfortable yet chic outfit is perfect for the streets of Florence, and with some layering can be rocked any day of the year.
