One thing Italians know: it’s all about fit. You can be wearing the most expensive suit, dress, or pair of jeans in the world – but it’s just not going to look good if it isn’t well-tailored. Make sure you have anything that’s too baggy or too long handled by a professional before you step out in it. Italians also know that chic doesn’t have to mean understated.

Italian women are famous for their sometimes-exaggerated curls, sunglasses, and animal prints. And if you’ve ever walked the streets of Rome or Milan, you now that Italian men take care of their hair and attend to their ironing. Also of the utmost importance is the footwear.

Unless you have a good pair of leather boots, loafers, or heels on, you’re just not going to pass for Italian. A classic set of kicks in leather is a wise investment that will look better and better with age and use. Accessorizing is also an all-important part of Italian dress. Statement pieces are the norm – and we’ve got them here at Sivani. So why not browse our men's and women’s jewelry? In bocca al lupo!
