How to Dress Like You're Basically Italian Royalty

I know, I know—Italy doesn't have a monarchy. However, chic sisters Viola and Vera Arrivabene may be the next best thing. After all, they are descended from the House of Savoy royal family and grew up in a 16th-century palace in Venice. Not only that, but the two certainly have an impeccable, royalty-worthy wardrobe to match.

Front-row fixtures at Dior shows every season, the sisters are worth keeping on your street style radar for Paris Fashion Week. They often emulate Ashley and Mary-Kate and Olsen, and wear complementary outfits like a coordinated jeans-and-blazer combo with candy-colored accessories.

Besides their personal style, I also love Viola and Vera for their brand of under-$150 slippers called ViBi Venezia, which pays homage to classic Venetian designs, and they know how to style the flats to perfection. Scroll to see seven outfit tips I picked up from studying their covetable Italian style.
