3 (perfect) looks for 3 weekends in Tuscany
There is something special about the Tuscan landscape, in its innate ability to soothe the spirit and slow the mind. A kind of spontaneous meditation that is impossible to resist: better to let go.
A hill and a parish church, a castle and a little further on a farmhouse, paths among the cypresses and woods, rows that at one step make way for olive trees, and then the sea. This is the magic of Tuscany, a land full of grace, great history, the place where Italian art has given and still gives among the strongest emotions, and at the same time a wine region among the most appreciated in the world. A destination where you can spend the slowest of vacations, if only for an unforgettable weekend. What to wear and what to bring in your suitcase for Summer 2022? Light and impalpable garments, in linen, gauze and cotton mousseline, to get totally in tune with the natural landscapes made of wheat fields, vineyards and sunflower fields.

WEEKEND IN FLORENCE: WHAT TO WEAR
The first stop on our trip is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, rich in history and charm, among the most sought-after destinations in Europe for cultural tourism and beyond. Of course, we are talking about Florence. And what better way to pay homage to it than by wearing the classic garment that is revisited with exquisite sophistication and sense of glamour? The shirt dress, also known as the chemisier, is one of the must-have garments of the upcoming summer season. The dress, in its variant in pastel shades, is an ode to versatility, the beauty of the essential and the freshness of lighter fabrics. Magnolia orange will be the common thread of this styling conceived under the banner of comfort and feeling good in your own skin. The chemisier is worn with the white sandal with the braided nappa leather strap, also perfect for those who do not feel fatigue and will want to climb the 414 steps of Giotto's bell tower enjoying a breathtaking view of the whole of Florence from above.

WEEKEND IN MAREMMA: WHAT TO WEAR
We set out again with a bit of melancholy and head for the land of butteri, unspoiled beaches, vineyards, olive groves and living nativity scenes perched on tufa mountains-the Maremma of Grosseto, at the center of the Maremma proper, has its own country chic coté to discover. Encompassed between the Gulf of Follonica and the mouth of the Chiarone stream that flows into the sea south of the Argentario promontory. Wine cellars, charming hotels, farms, boutiques and small restaurants for connoisseurs placed between the countryside and the sea.
The Maremma-inspired look has the flavor of these unique places. A long, soft dress to be free to run, stretch and somersault. Texan boots for the sake of getting dirty and feeling safe with every step. A woven rope bucket bag to hold your newly purchased deck of tarot cards and a pair of pink sunglasses to dream of cross-stitching your pillow covers complete your trip to the Tuscan Maremma, which is then more of an attitude than an actual place.

WEEKEND IN FORTE DEI MARMI: WHAT TO WEAR
Dulcis in fundo, one of the most exclusive vacation resorts in all of Italy: Forte dei Marmi. Beloved by VIPs, sports and entertainment stars, Forte dei Marmi is famous for its beaches, its clubs-including the legendary Capannina-and also for the sophistication of its boutiques, cafes and restaurants. It is the ideal destination for singles, families or those who choose to vacation with friends: Forte dei Marmi is one of the Italian capitals of tourism. The sea and the beach are the traditional strengths of the wonderful town born around the "Fortino," but not only. Like other resorts in Versilia, Forte dei Marmi is rich in scenic and cultural attractions.
Forte dei Marmi's beach is one of the longest and best equipped in Italy. Formed entirely of fine, golden-colored grains, it offers convenient access points to the sea. Characteristic of Forte dei Marmi beaches are the so-called guardhouses, wooden constructions typical of Versilia. Also very beautiful is the pier, which literally plunges into the water allowing pleasant and romantic walks in front of a unique panorama. Social life in these parts is not a possibility, but an institution. Visiting Forte dei Marmi means continually coming across trendy clubs, cafes, discopubs, and lounge bars that follow one another seamlessly throughout the town and are often frequented by stars, VIPs, and sports or entertainment personalities.
