Here we are again! In this super funny lesson, you are going to learn the name of colors and clothes in Italian! Graziana really pushed herself beyond the limit to shoot this video, so don’t miss it: you’ll crack up!
N.B. For clothes that have two “pieces” (scarpe, pantaloni, guanti, collant, stivali, calze EXCEPT FOR il bikini) you can use the expression “un paio di…“.
As far the size goes…
TAGLIA is the word used to talk about the size of clothes, instead NUMERO is used to talk about the size of shoes!
Now that you know clothes in Italian, learn Italian dirty words!
