Without being a racist, can you tell us that each ethnicity has its own look and not in terms of the way their features and bodies look but in terms of the fashion? And here we are not even talking about the way they traditionally dress but that indefinable touch of style that is distinctive to the way they dress. The more you think about how women from a particular place dress, the more you will realize that there is more to their ethnic looks and that they have a distinctive style that is all theirs. For instance, there are ethnic Indian fashion looks that is easy enough to recognize even if the person is dressed in western style outfits. Another such example we can point is the love of complete white on white outfits for this summer that women from the Mediterranean countries dress.

What can we say about Italian women? They have a reputation of being olive skinned, having amazing hair, expressive eyes and no dearth of feminine charms. They tend to be more expressive of their feelings when compared to their colder English sisters. Which also translates to the way they dress. But unlike their more colorful sisters from Mexico, Africa, Brazil and India, they tend to go for some basic colors like white, black, red, blue and green. You are pretty likely to find blatantly attention grabbing black and red dresses which tend to look more colorful and interesting when worn by these volatile beauties.
We believe that the weather of the place where you are from has a lot of impact on the way you look and the way you dress. This is definitely true of the Italian women and men and the way they dress. They (the women) tend to go for more of the flowing and feminine silhouettes when it comes to dressing for the warmer weather and when they do, they go for lighter colors. In the same way, they tend to go for darker and more fitted silhouettes when the weather turns colder.
The men like to look dashing but they too do not like to go overboard in the use of colors and textures. For instance, they love their black and white combinations with a few touches of leather thrown in. Unlike many other cultures, Italians tend to not go for too many prints. Even if they do, it does not go for fluorescent colors. If you are planning to dress in Italian style, then do ensure that you study the way nature in those parts looks like. For instance, the sky there seems to have bright blue color that cannot be found anywhere else and this color is often found in their clothing.
The colors of the many flowers and plants of the place are often found in their way of dressing. While on the whole Italians have an innate sense of style, they do not go overboard with over exposure of skin and like to keep the onlooker guessing with targeted and interesting skin showing through. The keyword for Italian dressing for women is blatantly feminine and for men is overtly masculine. It also helps that the leather goods, shoes, bags, belts, etc. from this area form a big part of their wardrobe and way of dressing.
Even if a woman wears trousers and a man wears a floral shirt, the concept of being confident in their innate femininity or masculinity shows through in the way the person carries himself or herself. Another factor that you have to keep in mind while dressing in Italian style is the nice use of gold which tends to make it all come together.
