3 Summer Trends That Are Blowing Up in Florence Right Now

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.

Neon tones have been popular in fashion circles for some time now, but on the streets of Florence, we spotted a new color trend to watch: bright, saturated hues. 

Worn in one block, as Sade Akinosho does here, bright colors can have the same striking effect as retina-shocking neon shades.

But the trend also looks equally cool when two contrasting saturated hues are combined (aka color-clashing.)

Of course, bold statement pieces also work well when grounded with reliable neutrals, as Diletta Natoli demonstrates here.

From lacy bralettes to satin slip dresses, lingerie as streetwear is one of the most prolific and daring trends we noticed on the streets of Florence.

A lacy bralette layered under a structured blazer is a popular silhouette we saw more than once.

Case in point. For a slightly more demure approach to the trend, try a silk scarf under your lapels.

Here, Italian singer Levante makes a compelling case for pairing a slinky slip dress with a color-blocked windbreaker.

If the streets of Florence are any indication, fanny packs are poised for a comeback. The controversial accessory was one of the most touted bags by the street style set at Pitti.

In case you had any doubts, here’s proof that the PVC accessory trend is still going strong.

A classic black nylon fanny pack offers a subtler option for embracing the polarizing trend.

Alternatively, go bold and lean into the trending ’90s aesthetic by donning a checkered fanny pack and a bucket hat for good measure.

Up next, Irina Shayk wore the coolest anti-summer body-con outfit in Italy.
