When travelling around Italy being chic is always a must. Not to look out of place with the elegant townsfolk of the magnificent ducal cities of Mantua and Ferrara, here’s a suggestion on what to wear.
A weekend away is about relaxing, about discovering new things but its never about being drab and unkempt. When visiting some of Italy’s jewels you need to look right. Luxurious boutique hotel booker, dinner reservations made, and now, lets pack for a weekend in Italy.
Make sure you bring some place with you. Renaissance duchesses were renowned for their fashion, so make sure not to look underdressed when in the cities which still carry their elegance. A red lace pencil skirt, an important silhouette for the season goes perfectly well with a long sleeve pine green lace top. Keep warm with this mini fur cape and fur arm warmers. The look needs something gutsy, so to lace knee high socks match leopard print Mary Janes and a cross-stitched rose and leopard print Sicily.
For a final statement slip on a fur hat and beautiful rose and gold baroque earrings.
Lucrezia Borgia’s and Isabella D’Este’s spirits won’t know what’s hit them!
