Il Mantello

Il Mantello – Italian for a cloak, mantle, coat, casing, blanket, wrap. I remember asking my mum years ago to bring one back from Italy. She had one and I loved it and she always referred to it as a mantello. After all, mantello sounds much classier than blanket right? I’m so glad they’re all the rage this season. I was eagerly awaiting cool temperatures to whip it out. The rest of my outfit was inspired by a story on WHOWHATWEAR.COM called The It-Girl Secret to Looking Taller & Leaner. How did I do? I honestly don’t care about being short. Not a big deal to me. I do love a good layering technique though! This is also great way to wear a cropped top or sweater without bearing skin.
