Shopping is not just an activity; in Italy it’s a lifestyle. So what more can you ask for? July, the sun, the amazing Italian landscape and tons of shops prepared to offer only the finest clothes quality at the best prices. All of this it’s sales time!
Precisely there are just two official Italian sales periods each year, according to the different Summer and Winter seasons; so don’t pass up the chance to visit the most beautiful Italian cities and their high fashion districts.
Milan is great for haute couture with a lot of Luxury Outlets and Department Stores, Venice has gorgeous glass from Murano, Florence’s leather markets are simply unique, and what can we say about Rome? It has everything you can wish.
One important thing to remember; almost every shop will have the word “SALDI” prominently displayed for 6-8 weeks. This year the sales start from the 7th of July and they finish about the 2nd part of August; the specific dates for each sales period change every year, and the end varies by region.
Don’t forget; by the Italian laws, products bought on sale can have stricter rules on returns. While new collection’s articles can be returned within 30 days, items with reduced prices can’t be returned unless flawed. So, you have to pay attention to the fitting or to the size of your reduced price dress or accessory; if you make a mistake, maybe you can be given a voucher, but it’s at the shop owner’s complete discretion to agree.
Last but not least, the new trend is the personal shopper; best fashion tips and tricks directly from an expert that will reveal all the new Italian high street glam rules. Only in the best boutiques.
