Creating your own style is easier than you may think. If you can’t afford to turn to the French fashion powerhouses, do not despair, Italy is just around the corner.

Remember, your style should be a reflection of your tastes, imagination, and confidence. It is not solely a matter of money or branded products. There are many ways to enhance your own personal style so let’s start with some essential Italian pieces like…

Italian Handbags

Cool Italian handbags have been in Vogue long before Chanel company came up with their first petite handbag. Those produced by vegetable tanning are top quality, there are plenty of designs on the market, and investing in one does not necessarily mean you need to spend a fortune.

Most Italian fashion chains or designers offer a range of bags, from small clutch bags to larger city style shopper totes and duffle bags. Italian handbags all have one thing in common – there is this air of timelessness about them so no wonder they are a fashion staple for women who know how to show some class.

Bling It Up

Ladies do like a bit of bling. But remember: moderation is key. Unless you are a hip-hop artist, no one digs big rocks. Italian jewelry is well known for its smooth and transitional designs. A piece bought ten years ago will look just as good today even though fashion, in general, has moved on. Top Italian companies, such as Murano Glass and Crystal, are happy to contribute to your bling box.

Go Footloose for Italian Shoes

If you have ever endured the foot ache from a pair of designer heels, you should do your best to invest in Italian heels next time you go hunting for shoes or boots. Top Italian footwear designers such as Bruno Magli really know that comfort comes first.

But that does not mean Italian heels will ever compromise your look. They look just as amazing as a pair of kitten heels, only you will also feel comfortable in them from dusk to dawn.

Suited and Booted

With so many ladies now in business, suits have never been more popular. It is easy to spot a classy Italian suit in the office. Designs are a little bit bolder and stand out from the crowd. For instance, a thrilly blouse is not what you wear with your Italian suit.

Instead, complete your outfit with a silky shirt and slip on a classic designer watch to complement the overall professional appearance. Remember, your Italian outfit can make a strong statement that you can own the business world while also creating a poise of elegance unlike no other.

Day Dresses

Day dresses have long been part of Italian fashion. What many ladies love about Italian dresses is that they don’t scream designer wear. They are far more discreet and can easily take you from a business meeting to a romantic dinner date with your own Casanova. Borrow the jacket from your suit and slip it over your dress, and you will soon find you have a timeless classic look without silly branded buttons.

Conclusion

Even high street Italian fashion is timeless, and once you have discovered your inner sensual Signorita, you may find yourself walking down the road in an outfit which tells everyone around you that you have class. In other words, dressing the Italian way will do more than enhance your looks – it will boost your confidence at the same time. Isn’t that really what being your own fashion icon is all about?

Off screen, Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan slay the salwar kameez look, setting a fashion statement that the new generation may otherwise consider ‘bygone’. Patialas and Palazzos may come and go, but there’s something evergreen about salwars, say style experts.

Mansi Gupta, Co-founder, Tjori, says the salwar has been tweaked over generations to suit the needs of women.

“The simple salwar was first made into the Patiala salwar, later they were made as dhoti salwar and then harem salwar or palazzo salwar…all these modifications to stay in the latest fashion trend. But it is a dynamically structured garment that shall never go out of fashion.

“Ask the average Indian women what would be their go to outfit when they have to go out or stay home, I can assure most of them will say a simple salwar kameez. The salwar is one of the very few Indian garments that hasn’t lost its ethnic value, and are forever,” Gupta told IANS.

In a latest on-screen stint, Sayani Gupta has been seen sporting salwars in “Article 15”. As Bollywood celebrities have quite an influence on driving the mass fashion narrative in the country, who knows the classic salwar may begin to be seen more frequently.

Sreyashee Halder, Design Head, W, said: “The comeback of salwars are inevitable – we can already see it becoming a hot favourite with designers and in the new age, the salwar will take a renewed form. We will see variations and innovations in that silhouette.

“Like in every fashion cycle – silhouettes and trends come back – this trend has also begun its journey back as it is going to be a refreshing change to the tight-fitted churidar. It also has its pros and cons and an extremely comfortable silhouette.”

She, however, feels that unlike a churidar which makes one look slim and tall, this silhouette is not as flattering. And so, “salwars will be back but may not stay for eternity”, she said.
