    Sounds about right, if a bit obvious.

    The art of layering, what a novel concept. Those half-zips the Italians wear are an eyesore BTW, can't stand that shit.

    Pretty plain article. Some visuals would have improved the communication of the points.

    How to dress like an Italian? Simply copy what everyone else in your town is wearing. That usually means plenty of beige and expensive distressed denim, the more visible the logo the better. Bonus points if your momma washes and irons your clothes; double if she buys them for you.

    I'm sure there's something very wrong in the world if the "Times of London" is advising its readers on how to pass as Italians.

    At least Italians are allowed to wear the hijab in public.
