After a week of traipsing through antiquity over cobblestone streets and through ancient ruins, I’m back to give a brief update on what’s new and hot in the world of Roman fashion!
Boots, boots, boots!: that is the main theme of fashion in Rome right now. Of course in Italy, leather reigns, so consider rich tan or black leather riding boots, knee-high stiletto boots, or rugged ankle boots. Pair your boots with leggings or bright or patterned tights with miniskirts, or with skinny jeans or jeggings.
Waist-length leather jackets are big right now, in any color of leather, especially with fur trim. Capelets are another jacket option that many Roman women are wearing right now. Oversized sweaters and jean shirts over jeggings are also big hits.
But that’s not all! Leopard print is also big in Rome right now. Roman women are wearing leopard print on everything from dresses, to hats to handbags.
With all the options out there, it will be no problem to stand out in the latest in Roman fashion this winter. Pick out your favorite pieces, and don’t shy away from bold colors and combinations. Be creative and have fun with Italian fashion!
