I am beyond excited to be studying abroad this Fall semester in Rome, Italy! My adventure begins in about a week and a half and I am getting anxious! I want to be in Italy, not at home! One of the reasons I picked Italy to study is of course the fashion! La moda d’Italia is one of the best in the world. I can’t wait to admire the works of Valentino, Versace, Prada, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana, Armani, and many more! I will be your go-to source for current Italian fashion while I am in Italy for three months. Italians are known to use dark colors, especially black, in a majority of their clothes. As we transition into the fall months, I am looking forward to seeing the use of dark colors in many skirts and dresses, a common trend in Italian fashion. In the early months of fall, check out the white and black contrast in suiting.
The sharp contrast of black and white will look professional, yet fashionable for suits. This trend is going to be popular in the US as well. Also, I’ll be on the look out for standout collars on blouses. In the Fall, collars are going to be distinct from the blouse or dress, whether they are embellished or a sharp contrasting color.
Rent the Runway is also embracing Italian fashion with new Italian Luxury Designers, Marco Bologna and Blumarine. I love the print on the Order in the Court Dress by Marco Bologna and its flirty full skirt.
You can rent this adorable Italian Dress from Rent the Runway for only $75! More updates from Italy will be coming soon! Ciao Bella!
