Ready to Wear Italian Fashion

Ready to wear Italian fashion signifies "off the rack" clothes that are made in Italy. In these past ten years of really studying what gives the Italian woman the edge on looking good, most of it comes down to the fact that ready to wear Italian fashion is simply better fitting and higher quality than the competition.

It is easier to look good when you have the advantage of clothing that needs few to no fittings. You can pretty much buy something off the rack and wear it the same day without even getting it fitted to match the curves of your body. Even if the clothing is mass produced in factories, the Italians just know what they are doing when it comes to clothing and fit. Slacks, sweaters, suits, and shirts glide on the body as if they were made for your body. I am talking about high quality clothing made in natural fibers and not the synthetic fabrics. I am talking not only about designer clothing but also clothing made by the smaller less known companies.

How do you find this ready to wear Italian fashion? Since this ready to wear is more expensive than its competitors, you can find it in the best department stores and boutiques. Don't be fooled. Even if you are in the best stores, you need to check labels. I do. I look and see if it is Made in Italy AND if it is a natural fiber. I will not pay top dollar for polyester, acrylic or anything similar. It must be wool, gabardine, cotton, silk,etc. And if it is not, I do not buy it.The natural fibers, if treated well, will last a very long time.
Good luck and happy shopping.
