They are almost always darted or seamed and worn with that Italian flair that reads formal and casual at the same time. I’m not saying which version is better, but just highlighting options.

Best Looks of Pitti


This is one that goes in my personal reference folder of looks to blatantly copy asap.

I finally had a few moments to get through the rest of my images from Pitti, so for the rest of the week I will post a host of great looks from my Florence trip. This might be a great Mid-Summer way to freshen up your Summer wardrobe.

On the Street…. Anna Piaggi

I know she is a little over dramatic, but every time I see Anna Piaggi she forces me to really consider her mix of patterns, colors and genres – I love that. She is a true, modren Style Icon.
