Time to talk about accessories!
Accessories can really dress up an outfit. Whether it's a necklace, a scarf, or the perfect pair of shoes, the accessories can define an outfit, make or break an outfit, and take a plain and boring outfit into something much more interesting.
Sunglasses, scarves, and belts are what I've been seeing the most in Italy lately.
The most common pair of sunglasses I've been seeing around Italy are the Ray-Ban aviators with the gold frames and black lenses. I like the mystery these shades add to an emsemble:
The summer scarf is another accessory that's been all over Italy. Even on the most scorching summer days, I'll find at least a couple women wearing the prettiest summer scarves. Lightweight and colorful, these have the power to totally transform an outfit.
This one from Topshop is similar to the scarves I've been seeing around:
Classic belts are another staple that the women wear with anything and everything that you can belt. Since Italy is known for its fine leather goods, brown leather belts are everywhere - especially Gucci and Hermes ones. Get a similar look with this belt without breaking the bank:
This is making me want to go shopping...
