    Love the feet and shoes on the orange lady but, what is going on with her cuffs, both seem to be rolled up in the back only.

    Also have never seen a sweater around the waist this way. Like an apron. hmm…

    I love how the sweater is tied to the front like an apron, instead of around the back. I wonder if this is common practice in Italy, or if it is the innovation of this particular lady (perhaps to show off her butt?), or if it’s just to cover up an unfortunate pasta sauce stain? No matter, I’m going to try this out.

    I was in northern Italy last month and I kept seeing this shade of orange on both men and women’s pants. It seems a bit like the Italian version of Nantucket reds. Preppie in a good way. Love it!

    to the guy who is in love with the shoes… can you explain why? (just curious.)

    Lol! Think it’s because they’re simple, yet unusual and I like love the fact that they are pointed.
    Also because they work in white which I’ve normally (prob wrongly) thought was a faux pas when it came to women’s shoes.
    I’m a sucker for shoes (mens) so I appreciate nice footwear when I see it

    She reminds me of my Aunt Kristane. True style can be found anywhere.

    This woman is the epitome of classic chic. The timeless cut of her clothes carries the orange colour well. Her skin tone and hair colour as well as her bag work well with the orange. I have been going to Milan for twenty years now for visits, and I can say that the style has not changed.. Each season has its rules in terms of fabric and colour–which are based on common sense (ie. lose fits for summer to cool down and winter to circulate body heat, elastic fabric for spring and fall–add Continental aesthetic to that and you’ve got a hard to beat formula for effortless elegance.

    Casual and stunning! American women just can’t (or won’t) do this! The sweater? Not sure about the “apron” effect. When I lived in Barcelona I loved how both men and women would attach their sweaters to themselves in different ways.
