Every summer, the fashion set descends on the streets of Florence for the semi-annual Pitti Uomo. While the runways and showrooms are replete with trends for the upcoming seasons, the streets are rife with inspiration for adding a bit of sprezzatura to our current summer wardrobes. (For the uninitiated, sprezzatura is the fashionable Italian art of nonchalant dressing—the Italian version of the French je ne sais quoi as it relates to style.)
While culling through all the best looks snapped by street style photographers at Pitti, we spotted three summer trends that are definitively blowing up in Florence right now and inspiring our summer ensembles until further notice. From the bold color trend that's poised to replace neon to the controversial accessory cool girls are backing, here's what's in according to Florence's most fashionable. Scroll on to see what they're wearing and shop the rising trends now.
