Rome-ing the Streets in Style

If you’re anything like me, you may start to feel a little fashionably uninspired in the colder months (I’ll wear the same sweater, like, everyday). But don’t give up yet! I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Rome this year, where I witnessed the most amazing street fashion, and I’d like to share with you some of my favorite #OOTDs inspired by some of the most on-trend, progressive street style in the world.


Outfit #1: Black on Black

Everywhere you look it's a black shirt, a black jacket, black pants, and black shoes. Personally, I can’t pull off that amount of black, so I broke it up with a white top and added a pop of color with red pointed ballet flats. I love this jacket, because its a cross between a leather jacket and a blazer. For pants, I wore black joggers.  

Outfit #2: Faux Fur

Faux is your friend! (Just be careful of falling into the fake faux trap.) I couldn’t even count the amount of girls in Rome who were rocking either a fur vest or a fur coat. I wore mine with a simple white dress and black tights, because I wanted the fur to stand out (s/o to the Queen of Zionsville Hot Southern Mama for letting me borrow her fur vest!) I’m absolutely in love with these boots from Italy.  The leather, the heel, the reddish tint-- I mean how could you not obsess over ‘em?    

Outfit #3: Black on Black Part II

In this outfit, I’m wearing a black t-shirt with black leggings.  I tied a flannel around my waist for that I-don’t-care-but-I-actually-kind-of-do vibe.  My shoes are my fave taupe booties.  For jewelry I layered two silver necklaces.

Outfit #4: LBD and a Flannel

This outfit features two things that will never go out of style: little black dresses and flannels. I wore this green flannel with my favorite LBD to make the dress a bit more casual. I’m also rocking the same booties from outfit #3.

Outfit #5: Military Jacket and a Sweater

Military jackets are so trendy in street style right now. Beanies are amazing because they’re both fashionable and functionable, so you can look cute while keeping warm! I paired my military jacket and beanie with a gray sweater and light-wash jeans. I’m also wearing a pair of gray knit socks and distressed short combat boots.  

So there you have it, simple, chic street style! Now, these outfits were created using things that I already owned, but I’d also like to mention some other noteworthy pieces I saw on the streets of Italy: oversized jean jackets, platform sneakers, ripped boyfriend jeans, and tall knee socks. I hope this helped inspire you to dress like you’re about to walk the runways of the world: the streets.
