Italian Family Style

My favorite thing about people watching in Italy is how frequently you can come across entire families that are completely put together from head to toe.  This snap from The Sartorialist sums that up pretty nicely for me.  Despite some serious stink-eye from Sibling #1, each of these three characters is showing off nice attention to detail on strong statement pieces, from the plaid-accented boat shoes to the scarf peeking out from underneath the mother’s coat.  My personal favorite, though, is the combination puffer/pea coat on Sibling #2.  Not only is it on-trend with what was shown in Paris and Milan, but it’s a fresh, functional reinterpretation of a classic, just in time for the long stretch of winter when pulling on the same heavy coat is beginning to get boring and repetitive.

It’s too bad we don’t know anything about the father, although the countless well-dressed older Italian men on the Sartorialist and the style on display here in this photo bodes well for this family.
