In Italy it is all about the shoes. Studying abroad here you learn about the countless designers, such as Salvatore Ferragamo, who’s known for his handcrafted shoes. Fashion icons come to Florence, Italy from all over the world to go shopping and visit the fashion district. It is a fashion hotspot and can be a great place to see fashion at its best.
Starting with her dress, this Fashionista keeps it simple, yet classy. The outfit is composed of neutral color tones. She wears minimal silver jewelry, keeping the outfit centered on her shoes. This outfit blends in very well with Italians. It can be dressed up or dressed down and work for various occasions. The dress is a staple piece for any Fashionista.
The hard part about living in Europe is that you cannot predict the weather. Every day it seems to rain, regardless of the forecast. This Fashionista’s ensemble is very flexible. Her dress is a thicker material that can work for colder weather as well as transition into the spring season.
No matter where you go in Italy, Italian women are wearing heels. Flats or sandals are not common around Italy. Shoes can be a giveaway that you are not a local. This Fashionista stays on trend with her gold heels. She is braving the cobblestone streets of Florence and rocking her shoes. If you don’t have faith in your balance on the uneven ground, go for the thicker heel for more stability. In Florence there are many boutiques and stores to find unique footwear that you couldn’t find at home.
In the words of the great Marilyn Monroe “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”
