A few years ago while shopping with a friend, we started talking about our respective “styles.” I remember saying I couldn’t really place what my style is. She came up with an answer for me: trendy, feminine, classic. It sounds almost like an oxymoron—can you be both trendy and classic?—but it fit.
I’m sharing this anecdote because last week I droned on about the Y2K trend I’m loving, but here I am with a new, more romantic aesthetic inspired by an Italian summer. Fashion has always been an escape for me, which is why it’s hard to pin down my style.
Anyway, let’s talk about this Italian summer aesthetic I can’t get over. Imagine you’re having a picnic in the Italian country side. That’s it. That’s the aesthetic. In other words, feminine, romantic pieces that have almost a vintage flair.
One of the easiest ways to obtain the Italian summer aesthetic is to throw on a breezy summer dress—floral print optional, but appreciated. I think this dress fits so perfectly because the floral print is subtle and it combines well with the feminine details (i.e. tie straps and A-line silhouette).
So tell me, are you imagining a Tuscan picnic right now? Because I definitely am! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
