The first Sicily Tote I chose to work with is this beautifully and intricately designed bag; its pops of pink and red work well with the detailed and artistic overlay. It reminds me of stain glass windows in old Italian churches and monasteries; it has an almost religious element to it. The main feature of the outfit is the gorgeous Cut-out Embroidered Brocade Shorts. Once tucked in, the Floral Lace Bib Blouse adds to the silhouette and creates the base of the look. My choice of footwear had to be the Pump Over-the-knee Sock Boots perfectly complementing the shorts. To finish the look off, the only coat that I felt truly embodied the classic Italian style true to this collection was the Fox Fur Collar Cape; it adds much sophistication and effortlessness.
For my second look, I worked around a very similar Sicily Tote bag with, this time around, a red, yellow and pink base complemented by the gorgeous Italian art we saw previously. When styling around such colour and design intricacy, I stuck with more block colours starting with the Lace Trim Strappy Dress. It's chic lace detail added layers without clashing with the other textures. For this look, a flat pair of shoes gave it a street style element with the Embellished Brogue Chelsea Boots, perfect for Italian street wear. The Fringe Knitted Cape gives the look an oversized quality and I think it really suits the dress as well as allows the bag to have the impact it deserves.
My final look is probably my favourite look of the three; I chose to base it around a Sicily tote Backpack with a more edgy side, embellished by fur in an awesome shade of red. Red is probably the most iconic colour to truly embody the rich Italian fashion of Dolce & Gabbana. The Floral Crocheted Lace Shirt adds texture to this look and tucked into the Child's Illustration Skirt, they complement each other perfectly. I adore this combination, but lastly to add more edginess to the look I chose some Stiletto Booties; these boots are truly beautiful and add a final testament to this classic Italian chic look.
