Like pasta, pizza and a full-bodied red, an innate sense of style is ingrained in Italian culture. Scholars call it la bella figura, we call it the perfect mix of Gucci and Attico. Our favorite street style mavens makes references to seventies-cool with knee high boots under Bohemian dresses and flare trousers in earthy tones of silk and velvet. The Italian aesthetic is simplicity with an unexpected twist; take this unlikely harmony of statement coat + earring.
Make the best mileage of the patent trend and pair your oil-slick accessories with classic denim and a cheeky Springtime shoe. The harsh, Matrix-effect of the black coat is offset by the viva la vida energy hanging from your ears. Texture-wise, patent can feel simple and understated when kept within classic boundaries like this trench-style coat. Go bold with shoes and earrings, but keep other accessories to a minimum (in style and color). This is the perfect way to add some energy to a boring winter’s day outfit, and also show off your new spring season purchases before the temperatures have joined. This eclectic ensemble proves that its super chic to break style rules. We say let’s toss out the rulebook altogether.
