The weather in Rome is finally starting to clear up from its constant downpours and gloomy skies, and it is out for several hours each day. Sunny weather always seems to put everyone in a great mood, and while walking through the streets, I couldn’t wait to strap my camera around my neck and venture around. While wandering, it was obvious that Fashionista/os were in high spirits while flaunting their attire.
While walking past the Guarini Campus, this Fashionista was cheerful and successfully dressed for the weather, in style of course. She stood out particularly because she wasn’t dressed in the typical Italian look that I have seen thus far. When chatting with her, she informed me that she was studying abroad all the way from Nashville, Tennessee. Clearly, her cowboy boots were the signature piece to her southern-inspired look. In fact, many Italian shoe stores here carry various assortments of southern-inspired boots. Boots are classic trends that let Fashionistas achieve a casual yet elegant look.
To continue, this Fashionista accessorizes her sweater dress and cardigan just right. The way she incorporates accessories into her look adds a dressy touch to her casual style. Her skinny leather belt synched at the waist can be worn not only with dresses and skirts, but also with jackets, coats and fur vests. Additionally, her lengthy pearl beaded layered necklaces and Michael Kors watch dress up her relaxed, western look in a sophisticated manner.
When I asked this Fashionista how she plans to incorporate Italian style into her look, she informed me that she was planning to add some Italian leather to her collection. However, she plans to continue to remain true to her hometown and mix and bring her southern, preppy style to Italy!
