Milan Fashion Week
Milan brought us unparalleled glamour this past fashion week, presenting more formal looks than we have previously seen in New York and London. Along with it were quirky clutches, thrilling shoes and that usual chic Italian flair. Here are some of the hottest looks and trends from the street stylistas at Milan Fashion week.
Beguiling maxi dresses and floaty skirts graced the Italian avenues. Only in Milan would you see evening wear worn in the day down the street as if it were completely normal...it probably is over there. I loved the coral clutch and braided hairstyle that complement the first animal print sheer maxi skirt. The second look sees a gorgeous emerald green skirt accented by bold jewellery. Patricia Mansfield is stunning in a charcoal grey plated Halston gown (pictured third) and Veronika Heilbrunner looked lovely in a white embroidered Cavalli dress (last).
Structure and sophistication is always prevalent at Milan Fashion Week, where inky black ensembles capture the mystic of the city. The first look is the height of modern refinement with a black skater skirt and sleek fitted top. Vogue Australia fashion editor Christine Centenera looked suave in a white shirt with black wrap skirt, leather leggings and edgy leather boots. Jong Kol (third) wore a poetic draped cherub print top and cigarette trousers. Bibi Bevza looked beautiful in a voluminous black dress with cuffed heels (last).
Midi Skirts Milan Style
The midi skirt trend has made its way to Milan with an array of uniquely styled looks. The cream Celine skirt proved to be a popular choice - pictured first on journalist Kate Waterhouse with a leopard print top and cap-toed shoes. Blogger Maria Kolosova paired her red leather skirt with a white shirt and dazzling sandals (second). Sofia Guellaty (third) wears a matching cropped top and vibrantly printed skirt with cerise shoes. The last outfit refreshing places flats in the mix with a cute sailor hat, white pleated skirt and playful printed tank.
Laid Back Glam
Easy glamour has never been this simple to follow, all you need is a flattering pair of trousers, an elegant blouse or blazer and interesting accessories like a designer bag and adorably chic hat. I love the white ruffled Chloe blouse Natasha Goldenberg wears in the second outfit and the flaired 70's inspired plaid pants in the third look worn by Maria Kolosova.
Floral prints beautifully culminated the end of summer with this striking set of looks. Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi caught the attention of photographers in two different fully printed outfits (pictured first and third). The second and last looks are perfectly complemented by brightly coloured clutches and heels.
The balance between feminine and masculine style is maintained by adding heavier leather elements to dainty dresses. Look one teams a sporty grey sweater with a sexy white sheer lace skirt and sturdy leather sandals. Look two styles a bright pink dress with a slick black biker jacket, satchel bag and bulky boots. Oksana On (pictured third) pairs her pretty cream Chanel chiffon and lace dress with grungy Balenciaga buckle boots.
Why save shimmer for the night when you can outshine the sun? This stylish set of ladies have proven that metallics can be worn during the day. Sara Rosetta (first) wears her glossy gold Zara skirt with a prim white Calvin Klein shirt. The second outfit boasts high shine sequins in a voguish mini dress. Anna Dello Russo glimmers in a gold Prada pinafore dress (pictured third). The last outfit features a bronze metallic jacket worn over all white.
Rainbow shades brought a much needed brightness to Milan street style with bold monotones in colours that speak louder than words. Love the cobalt blue jumpsuit with printed blazer and the emerald green skirt (pictured last) worn with a Kenzo tiger print tank top.
