Whether you are heading to Italy this season or not, you can channel the aesthetic easily by turning to fiery tomato red clothing, oversized sunglasses, linen sets, romantic corsets, & graphic floral prints. Think Sofia Loren, a chic Italian summer, and very effortlessly feminine. Here are the clothing staples you will want to rock if you are going for the look.
