As I previously mentioned, while the men in Roma dressed molto bene, the women did not impress quite as well. In all fairness, I hear they do in Milan, but I was not there this trip. I went a little snap happy in Rome so the following focus on the good (notice, not great). I mostly stuck to the ‘high-rent’ shopping district near the Spanish Steps (Via dei Condotti, Via Borgognona, Piazza di Spagna) because I figured if the best shops were there, so would be the best dressed.
Generally, here is what I noticed about the good…like us, they love a good handbag. I saw tons of LV (brown logo), Prada, Miu Miu, YSL and all of the usual suspects. The dress was the clear winner for apparel. Shoes were very important and why wouldn’t they be in Italy? A look I loved was the metallic sneaker. One I hated was cowboy boots with shorts, skirts and dresses. Particularly in 90 degree weather. Sunglasses were very important and the ones I saw most…Prada. The most important accessory? The cell phone or a hot man on your arm.
