What to Wear: Italy Outfit Guide

European summer is finally here! If you’ve ever been to Italy, you know that it is one of the most beautiful and fashion-forward places in the world. Before our trip, I spent a few weeks carefully planning out my looks for each location. In today's blog post I'm sharing all of the outfits I wore in Italy!

Summer in Europe is truly a dream. When preparing for the trip, I intentionally packed outfits for sun-soaked days exploring different cities, while also keeping in mind ‘chic-and-comfortable’ pieces.

You can’t go wrong with the basics. This look is made up of summer staples! My tube top is longer than cropped length, so it tucks perfectly into the denim midi skirt. I styled these pieces with a simple belt and my most-worn flats, the Hermès Oran sandals! This is an easy daytime look for touristy activities and lunch with the locals. See my full review on the Oran sandals here.

For any European trip, you’ll want to pack a staple pair of comfy white sneakers. If you struggle to find outfits that make casual sneakers look dressier and more stylish, try something like this neutral two piece set! The pants are flowy and lightweight which works perfectly to wear on a summer day out and about. This set is also great because both the top and pants can be mixed and matched with other outfits!

As you can tell, I love a day-to-night look. This outfit can take you from a full day of walking on cobblestoned streets in Florence, to sipping rosé at sunset, ending with having dinner at the best trattoria in town! This is another two piece set that looks adorable together but can also be mixed and matched with other outfit pieces on your packing list.
