Selena Gomez Masters Romantic Italian Getaway Style With The Weeknd
Posted on 31 January 2017
When you’re in the early stages of a relationship, and it comes time for that all-important first getaway together, how to pack the part can be problematic to say the least. No one wants to be that girl with the overstuffed suitcase (and high-maintenance vibes); then again, it’s just as important to be prepared from a fashion perspective. Versatile pieces that will pull double duty for multiple occasions are your best bet, as demonstrated by Selena Gomez this past weekend. The singer was spotted hand-in-hand with her new beau, The Weeknd (né Abel Tesfaye), on a trip to Italy, taking in everything from museums to dinners after dark. While there’s still speculation as to their relationship status, there’s no question that Gomez has mastered chic vacation style.
For a visit to the Accademia Gallery in Florence, Gomez wore the ultimate day-to-night date look. Her Vilshenko toile dress boasted a flirty halter neckline that was offset by a midi-length hem, and could be seen peeking out underneath her tailored overcoat, just so. The structured outer layer worked as a polished counterpoint to the tiered ruffles on her dress. Gomez kept her accessories to a minimum, save for ivory peep-toes with a bow detail and translucent ankle straps for an additional leg-lengthening effect. As for Tesfaye, the singer went the casual-cool route with a navy Puma jacket featuring metallic embroidery that played off a gold medallion swinging from his neck.
A few days later, Gomez stepped out in another statement coat perhaps for an afternoon boat ride in Venice, this time paired with a navy wrap style. Swapping her heels for over-the-knee boots in rich suede, Gomez ensured her look could work off dry land. Round John Lennon–style frames punctuated the moment. For his part, Tesfaye chose a layered streetwise look: a camo-print hoodie and a light-wash denim jacket. By topping things off with sleek circular shades of his own, Tesfaye and Gomez were the picture of a stylishly coordinated couple.
