I just got back from Italy, and my trip was nothing short of extraordinary. Between the picturesque landscapes, elaborate architecture, and delicious food, it's hard to pick a favorite thing about my vacation—but I think the impeccable fashion takes the top spot. I took notes on the trends and pieces I saw nonstop in Rome, Capri, Positano, and Amalfi. Luckily, you don't have to book a plane ticket to dress like a chic Italian—I found every piece you need at Nordstrom. Keep scrolling to shop the ultimate Italian summer fashion edit.

Patterned Scarves

Small patterned scarves are underrated accessories that have that sophisticated European vibe. They're super versatile, too—wear them tied on a handbag, in your hair, around your neck, or even as a top if you're daring.

Airy Linen

Delicate, ethereal linen in all forms—dresses, trousers, tops, and more—is a summer staple in Italy.

Long Dresses

Wearing a midi or maxi dress with a long, flowy silhouette is a low-effort way to look put-together. Pro tip: Layer a sweater over your shoulders—a lot of Italians do that since it can get chilly at night.

Timeless Accessories

Italians always have a classy pair of sunglasses, a staple handbag, and simple jewelry.
