Get the look – Rome

I made the most of an unexpected day in Rome by checking out the fashion.  Rome had a lot more variety than Germany and the clothes were MUCH cheaper – less than Eur100 an item, anyway.

For a start – halter necks. The dresses in Germany were all the same, with sequined bodices and that was it. The Roman style had a lot more details in the construction

Again, details in construction

Truth in advertising

Wraps and mock wraps were popular. Note the mock wrap under the jacket here

Ruffle-front blouse

Excellent blouse/jacket combo here. Note the tie one the neck

Same shop – a really bold casual suit with an upmarket Hawaiian-style print on the blouse

Double denim is never in, no matter what they tell you

Simple and elegant

Swimwear had a lot more variety including a LOT of one piece suits, and items such as ‘beach trousers’. Not everybody has a slim figure but the Italians will sell you stylish things that are flattering. I thought this was a good compromise for those that want a bit more coverage than a bikini.

Wide-legged trousers were common, as they should be. This kind of loose linen look was everywhere

LOOK at the lines of that jacket!

Ruffle-front blouses are excellent
