At a meeting: While Italians can pull off anything at workfrom Bermuda shorts to bustiersAmericans should avoid such sartorial sprezzatura (on us it doesn't look cool, it looks crazy). Still, shirts can be low-cut and vibrantly hued; men's suits must be perfectly tailored.
On the street: Young people in Italy pair tight Dolce & Gabbana tops with Diesel jeans, while sophisticates sport slim three-piece suits, always matched with the right hat or narrow knit tie.
At a party: A woman won't leave the house without her Dolce & Gabbana dress and heels (four-inch minimum). Men look good in navy suit jackets with blue shirts buttoned all the way up.
P.S. Think brands, brands, brandsand preferably Italian: Versace, Gucci, Cavalli, or Armani.
