Style wise, what exactly sets Italian women apart? Is it their love of bold prints or their effortless, elegantly sexy vibe? Where to get the answers from better than the Dolce & Gabbana runways? Here, Savoir Flair decodes Italian style and how to get it right.

1

Play With Prints

Italians have a knack for mixing florals with graphic prints, so don’t be afraid to experiment, and most of all, have fun with it. For starters, go for safe colors like black and white, and then gradually start injecting in other hues such as red or yellow.

Have a Love Affair with Lace

Forget what you know. It’s not less is more, but rather lace is more. The sexy, sensual fabric is one of the major building blocks of any stylish Italian woman’s closet.

Go All Out With Accessories

Italians’ love for opulence extends to the way they put the finishing touches on their outfits. They are not ones to shy away from excessive embellishments, maximal earrings, and fun headpieces.

It's All About Attitude

Finally, dressing like an Italian wouldn’t be complete if you don’t absolutely own your look. Remember that confidence is always the key when you rock that crop top and figure-hugging dress.
