It has been hot this summer, as an Italian I know what living in a hot summer means. It feels as if you want to tear all the cloths off your body and throw yourself in the Trevi Fountain. Keep calm women, do not do that, in Italy you get arrested for playing around on historical sites!!! Anita Ekberg was filming La Dolce Vita when she did that and the city of Rome granted permission to Fellini.

Italian women and men do not let the summer heat bother them. Sure they turn to a more casual look and walk around licking a gelato always in stylish clothes.
They wear very light fabrics, such as breathable linen and cotton, light and vibrant colors, wear mostly mini skirts or dresses, their clothes often have fenestration (slits into clothes) and transparencies become a day-to-day habit. They wear comfortable shoes and men wear no socks with loafers, so sexy! Do not forget in the summer heat every part of the body expand, thus having comfortable shoes to walk on cobblestones is a necessity and if you feel like wearing some pink and silver boots like one the women above, go ahead, I hope there is AC in there.
My ideal dandy looks like him in the heat of the summer.
Style is all about how you live your life regardless of the heat. Show how cool you can be. Ciao,
