Are you planning a little trip? Are you coming here? Are you trying to merge with italian people, not looking like a tourist?
This post will help you with your style, to be comfortable but fashionable: you don’t need to wear high heels but for God’s sake don’t you dare use flip-flops!
Some small tips can be really helpful. For example, if you are planning a shopping afternoon, don’t bring tons of plastic bags from all the little local shops: choose a big, quality paper bag and put all your ugly little bags in it! If you are going to take some photos, take it to the next level: skip your compact for a good camera; nothing like a compact screams “old tourist”, and remember that Italians never use the selfie stick (they are also forbidden in some museums)! Also, a scarf can be a good alley to enhance a minimal look, to protect you from evening breeze and to cover your shoulders when you visit a church. If you choose it in a basic colour you will wear it with every outfit.
Wear a little makeup because we don’t go out without makeup. Ever. We don’t go to the market, we don’t bring the trash outside. Really, don’t go out without it. But don’t wear too much of it: you don’t need glitter to visit the Sistine Chapel, and a lot of foundation under the Sicily sun will melt your face with a grotesque result.
While we wait for vacations, let’s look at some cute outfits for this spring and summer!
