There’s something particularly alluring about Italian-girl style. Striking the perfect balance between minimalism and maximalism, the Italians truly know how to dress. They know their way around a fab party frock and aren’t ones to shy away from mixing prints and colors. Plus, their impeccable street style always serves as inspiration for seasons to come.
In terms of summer style, I like to source my sartorial inspiration on a global scale.

But without a doubt, Italian women are some of the most stylish in the world, and there’s something about Italian summer style that I just can’t get enough of.

Prego!
