The key buys for your wardrobe

“Italians are un­der­stated, so we like basics in black, white and beige. If we go for colour it’s nor­mally a knock­out red or a print. And we love flo­rals in sum­mer.”

Ital­ian style is about qual­ity pieces, so in­vest in these: • A sleeve­less, knee-length LBD with a slit at the back. Choose a beau­ti­ful fab­ric, like crêpe, which is wool with a bit of stretch. For em­bel­lish­ment, add a skinny belt or a vin­tage brooch. • A soft leather jacket in a neu­tral hue to edge up your LBD or jeans. • A gor­geous and flirty floral dress. • A fit­ted white cot­ton shirt with a small col­lar and cuffs, and skinny sleeves. Go for fab­ric with some give. • Slim, black an­kle-length cig­a­rette trousers. Look for cool de­tails like state­ment zips or slits on the hem. • Wide-legged trousers that fit well at the waist. Wear with heels for a slim sil­hou­ette and to elon­gate legs. • A knee-length black pen­cil skirt. • A striped blouse to go with your skinny trousers, jeans or skirt. • A long neu­tral cardi­gan that you can drape over ev­ery­thing. • A well-cut, one-but­ton jacket. • An over­sized black or brown leather tote, or a back­pack for day. • A sparkly black clutch for night. • A silk print scarf for day, a solid colour scarf for night and a wool or cash­mere shawl as a cover-up. • Wedge sandals, plat­form heels and black or nude point-toe heels.
