How to dress like the stylish Romans

Thankfully, Rome is no frigid city inthe fall. Come mid-October, temperatures tend to dip slightly below 70 degrees during the day and then curtsy to the mid-50s at night. Showers happen, but they are typically short and sweet. Style is key in the Eternal City, and women don heels and lipstick when leaving their appartamenti. When in Rome, dress accordingly.

For a day look that prances into evening, try DKNY’s wool-blend jersey jumpsuit. The belt adds texture and nips the waist, while the V-neck begs for a bold necklace. Pair with wedged booties during the day and add stilettos for night. At Netaporter.com; $375.

If you skip the lipstick, why bother getting dressed? Dior’s Replenishing Lipcolor in Dolce Vita Pink — a matte, muted hue — works for any complexion. Top with clear gloss at night to add oomph. At Sephora.com; $28

Jewelry designer Malin Nyman Smallcombe is right on trend with the jade craze. Her Florentina necklace juxtaposes turquoise stones dyed a dazzling green with burnished wooden circles. The jute cord adds yet another organic element. At Aplusrstore.com; $135

Prepare for drizzle or a squall with a compact, adorable umbrella that injects humor and glamour into any ensemble. At Fredflare.com; $32

With its cobblestones and hills, Rome isn’t easy on the ankles. To be sure-footed and chic, opt for a sturdy pump like these tortoise-patent leather stunners. You’ll thank them for the roomy toe after hoofing it up the Spanish Steps. There is a ballet version too. At Jcrew.com; $188
