HOW TO WEAR CLOTHES LIKE AN ITALIAN!

Ciao Poppi followers! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer months! While we still have our sunshine days, we seem to also have rainy days thrown into the mix.  I would like to use that opportunity to introduce some of our new clothes from Italy that would be perfect for these cooler rainy days!

ITALIAN STYLE, SIMPLE YET COMPLEX

The secret to dressing like an Italian is simple, yet complex: fit, color and fabric. Restrict the colors you wear. Italians will typically wear two at a time. And pay close attention to the fit. Clothes should skim the body! Last, pay close attention to accessories. Be a bit of diva with those!

The first piece is a long sleeve, light weight sweater with a gold-toned button at the crest of the neckline. Designed with a horizontal stripe pattern of grey, beige and black, it is a perfect topper with slim fitting jeans, slacks or any style skirt.  it would also be a chic cover-up for the sassy black dress.

Our second piece is our new Prince of Wales styled dress pants. Perfect for the refined city look teamed with ankle boots or heels. Designed in a soft plaid pattern in tones of grey and black. Woven into the design are thin silver and gold threads. Finishing the look is a velvet belt tied bow style in front.

The last piece I want to talk about is our boxy, cropped sweater that harmonizes well with any style of trouser or a mid-waist skirt.  Available in cream, hunter green and merlot, this cozy cropped sweater can be paired with almost any outfit of choice! It sports long sleeve, and loose fit.  On the front and sleeves there is a subtle horizontal ribbing in the fabric.

The story of Gianni Conti began in 1920 when Nicola Contigiani began making hand-made leather bags in his “Casa” in Italy.  It has grown into a respected and re-known design house producing exemplar leather bags and wallets for both women and men.  Each bag tells its own story,  from the fragrance of the Veg-Tanned leather, to the particular aesthetics, and finally the endurance of each bag made. Like many Italian businesses it has now passed to his family to continue the family tradition.
