There is a certain innate chicness to Italian style, the way a woman can take the most basic wardrobe item, be it a black blazer or crisp white button-down, and make it a look entirely her own. Now, thanks to Giorgio Armani’s new capsule collection, Giorgio’s, anyone can have a piece of that style for their very own. From perfect work outfits to a sexy night-out ensemble, there are countless ways to wear each item. Here three stylists each offer their own distinct take on the Italian designer’s signature brand of elegance.

“Women today are self-confident and daring and no longer need to show that they are equal to men. They do not need to give up their femininity.” —Giorgio Armani

“Elegance is a concept that does not change. That is why I always make small changes to modernize the classic wardrobe, but without distorting it. My thoughts and ideas go beyond trends.”
