The pity with this post is that I didn’t get enough good photos to do a proper Street Style post. Not because there weren’t enough gorgeous looking women around but because I was in the wrong spot for taking pictures most of the time. And as I was in Turin to spend time with Daniela, I didn’t want to put too much time and effort into it.
As Street Style photographers know, it takes skill, time and dedication to get the right pictures. So be it, you will have to do with these pictures. You’ll get to see the good ones first and as you go through the post, the quality gets poorer. But I can tell you… Italians do know how to dress.
Above: this dear lady posed for me and told us that she got a lot of stylish items from the brand Marella (a Max Mara label). Dan and I nodded in acknowledgement.
Below: “You see?” Dan said to me, “This is Italian elegance for you.” I couldn’t agree more. Below: a bit of a dangerous style for my taste, but she clearly put effort in looking good. Didn’t just sling on an old T-shirt en put on some out-of-shape jeans.Below: I took a picture of this lady in another town near Turin. Dan said “I don’t think she will consent to having her picture taken. This is a smaller town than Turin.” But she did, bless her. Gorgeous boots, earrings, coat and clutch to balance the jeans. (You’d think all Italian women are handsome don’t you?)Below: colour in the street. See how well that bag matches the coat and necklace?Below: OK, cheating a bit here as they are clearly a lot younger than 40.Below: a vague and hasty picture but you just have to see the shoes. All Italian women put the emphasis on shoes and certainly on the bag. I don’t think I have seen one woman in Turin without a proper, good looking bag.Below: throwing on a scarf can be a form of art. Love her short hairstyle too.Below: no idea what her age is, but the SHOES!! So nice.Below: I only caught her back…. such a shame. Black and white was clearly a well-loved combination. As you will see from here on.
Below: she was very good looking and I could only get a picture of her just before she got into her house. It was the coat that attracted me.Below: pictures are getting worse …. (just warning you). I love her booties.Below: I couldn’t get a good clear shot, but loved the black (faux?) fur coat of this lady. Three quarter length sleeves is very trendy. They go nicely with the long gloves which are now in fashion.Below: black and white and some fun in the sweater.Below: vague picture. Elegance with the scarf. Black/white/grey.Below: she looked better in real life. But again, the face, the hair.. gorgeous Italian woman.Next week I will show you a skirt I bought with Dan in Turin.
