French-girl style can go ahead and take a back seat, because it’s the effortless Italian vibe I’m deadly serious about channeling for the foreseeable future. Before you yell "Blasphemy!" (I see you, Who What Wear readers—don’t think I don’t know your insane click-through rate on French-girl stories), just scroll through the six looks below and try to tell me this isn’t exactly the polished-casual vibe you want to achieve all summer long.
Italian-girl style is just a little more *fun* than that nonplussed Parisian vibe. Yet it really doesn’t stray too far from those highly wearable, lightly tailored staples that keep things feeling polished (you know, blazers and shirts and such)—but now we get to flirt with Bright Colors(!) and Prints(!) that catapult our looks into the fun zone French-girl style could never quite reach.
There are really just three ingredients one needs to lock in the flawless modern Italian-girl vibe: Start with a classic Tod’s Gommino loafer, add a cute top-handle bag, and then it’s just about having yourself a great, Aperol spritzy time. More details below.
