There are endless reasons why I love the city of Rome and its people. The aesthetics of the city are reason enough to take your breath away. I especially love the juxtaposition of its ancient ruins and cobblestone streets as a backdrop to the effortless modern street style of the women who live there.
We spent four days in Rome on our recent anniversary trip and I couldn’t resist taking note of the latest style trends worn by Italian women so that I can hopelessly try to emulate them in my little corner of the world.
And you can, too. Here are five current street style trends from Rome plus my top shopping picks (from investment to affordable) to incorporate these looks into your fall wardrobe.
Modern yet elegant, I think the double bar finger ring is a subtle statement piece and best accompanied by a simple single band on the other hand.
Silver, gold, rose gold and bronze hues were everywhere from footwear to handbags and accessories. Whether you want to invest in a high-end piece (hello, pretty Fendi) or play around with a less expensive version, metallic finishes are the perfect way to make a look bellisima.
Roman women are wearing their hearts on their sleeves beyond graphic tees to dresses and jackets. Don’t think of these pieces as an extension of athlesure wear, but as a statement piece to an overall polished look.
Everywhere I looked, women were rocking a fresh pair of Converse with pretty feminine skirts and dresses as well as a breezy cropped pant. These kicks give a little edge to a high-fashion look.
The cropped and wide leg culotte pant were made for riding your scooter through Ancient Rome or bopping around from piazza to piazza all day. They give any outfit a high-fashion edge even when it’s a simple t-shirt and jeans. Booties will be the perfect pairing for cool fall days, too.
Ok, bellas. These are the five street style trends from Rome that are inspiring my wardrobe enhancements this season. Which will you be adding to your closet??
Ciao, ciao! <3
