WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

Ciao from the magnificent city of Rome, where fashion is coveted just as much as the statue of David (ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little). Not only is this city absolutely breathtaking, but it is also the perfect place to widen your horizons and wear articles of clothing that are foreign or different. When I hear the word Rome the words mozzarella, spaghetti, gelato and (of course) SHOPPING automatically come to mind. No matter where you are in the world, it is always appropriate to dress in an ensemble that makes you look like a piece of art.

This Fashionista is ready to hit the town and shop until she finds the most beautiful treasures that Rome has to offer! Keeping it cool and comfortable is the key to any outfit when going on a shopping excursion. Perhaps the most well kept secret is the skater skirt. Not only are they extremely comfortable and airy, but they also make any outfit look instantly more dressy. This fabulous Fashionista paired a bright blue skater skirt with a simple black short sleeved shirt. By adding a darling long necklace that complemented her skirt perfectly, she tied the entire look together. She looks effortlessly cute and chic –  two things that everyone should aim towards when choosing an outfit. When shopping, I find that it is best to use a cross-body bag like this Fashionista did so that you will have more arm space for your shopping bags. Since comfort is the key, simple black flip flops are perfect for this occasion.

Skater skirts should be an essential part of every Fashonista’s closet. They come in all colors and patterns, which makes them accessible to wear for a wide range of events and occasions. This is a great way to maximize your closet while staying chic and fashion forward.

One Simple Change: Throw on some black wedges and a tight black crop top and you are ready for a fabulous night out on the town!
