Italian style is luxurious, classic and timeless. Think crisp shirts, cashmere sweaters, pencil skirts and a killer LBD. We look to three Italian style icons for inspiration. Steal their style, here.

Giovanna Battaglia

A chic knit dress is a wardrobe must-have. We love Vogue Japan’s senior fashion editor Giovanna’s update with an open back and bare shoulders.

Chiara Ferragni

Sophia Loren

The screen siren was loved for her beauty and Mediterranean curves. Here, she’s seen in classic staples: a sophisticated suit and a wide-brim hat.
