Italian Town Looks to Curb Provocative Style

Let’s be honest, when people go on vacation, they often like to dress for the occasion especially if it’s warm and sunny.  No matter where you travel to, it’s not unlikely that you’ll find a fair share of low-cut tops and miniskirts. However, one Italian town is coming down hard on those who like to strut their stuff and is putting an end to it.

As the Daily Mail reports, the Italian resort town of Castellammare di Stabia will start fining guests who are wearing revealing clothing. Some of the clothing under the law consists of low-cut tops, low-lying jeans and miniskirts. It maybe surprising to find such a case at a resort town, when you would presume that such a vacation spot would be the one place that people feel comfortable donning their provocative clothing.

The cost for wearing your favorite top or miniskirt is the cost of a Saturday shopping spree, with fines of up to $700. The intentions of the rule are to bring back modesty to the town and cut out unruly behavior. Evidently, if you show your cleavage, you’re likely to be involved in outlandish behavior. This is one of the lesser proposed ordinances out of a list o f 41 rules that are up for discussion in the town. Other potential laws include banning football in parks and swearing in public. Damn — guess I won’t be going to Castellammare di Stabia this year.
