Everyone knows Italy is one of the fashion capitals of the world. Trends are started here. fashion shows are held here. It’s all here. And it’s all mind-blowingly stylish. So how does a student studying abroad dress in order to fit in with the locals and not scream “tourist” everywhere she goes?
This Fashionista seemed to have the answer, with her on-the-go outfit—perfect for a busy day in the city. With classes in the morning, sight-seeing during the afternoon and, of course, hitting the town at night, it can be difficult to find one outfit that fits all of these criteria. However, this stylish Fashionista had it all figured out.
Her outfit had layers—great for dealing with the rising and falling temperatures of Italy in the summer. She opted for jeans, a tank top, sandals and topped it all off with a bomber jacket from Zara.
I’ve been seeing these jackets more and more lately, so it’s no surprise this fashion-forward Fashionista was wearing one as well. While practical enough to keep her warm during the cool mornings and breezy evenings, the jacket was also lightweight enough to carry around during the day; not to mention it looks bombastic (ha) with almost any outfit (especially the one this Fashionista picked out.) Her shimmery champagne-colored tank top was from a boutique in Barcelona, however, when I asked about it, she said you could find something similar at Mango. Lastly, her RayBan sunglasses added an edge to the look that you simply cannot get without sunglasses—they’re a staple item to almost any outfit, especially in a place as bright as Italy. When asked, this Fashionista said, “I don’t go anywhere without them…They’re almost as important as my passport,” she joked.
