They’re the looks you’ll be copying all season- with Milan Fashion Week coming to a close, where better to get the latest inspiration than the style on the streets. From fishnet details to kitten heels, here are the trends that matter.
Glossy, high shine styles were everywhere in Milan, with the A-line skirt taking front and centre stage. Wear yours with a crisp white tee and maxi coat for a Spring-ready feel.
Ditch any preconceptions about fishnet tights…they’re enjoying a major comeback, bringing tough new edge to your spring closet. Layer underneath your ripped denim, or team with a pair of chunky boots for those grunge vibes.
WIDE LEG TROUSERS
It’s all about the nostalgia with wide leg details in Milan. Ditch your tapered skinny jeans in favour of a more relaxed fit, best paired with a crisp white shirt or coloured crop top.
Pops of colour will be prevalent as the mercury rises, so it’s time to invest in stand out tones. Not sure where to begin? Why not try a pair of statement sneakers. The fast track to on-trend cool.
The decadent lace-up undergarment has undergone a major transformation of late; seeing corset detailing on everything from tailoring to jersey-esque pieces. Ease into the trend with a black lace-up tee to accentuate the waist, and finish with a pair of ripped jeans and combat boots to keep things low key.
Yes, you heard us right. Kitten heels… let that sink in. Love them or hate them, it’s time to get on board; as it seems these tiny elevations made waves on the streets of Milan. Sensible is the new cool, so team your pair with a trouser suit or a pair of frayed hem jeans.
Feminine details are dominating the catwalks right now, and it seems like the fashion crowd at MFW are following suit with frills, balloon sleeves and bell-shaped cuffs prominent. Stretched out and puffed like a balloon, these features are perfect for a playful twist on a day look- team yours with a pair of tapered trousers, and cinch with a corset belt for a statement finish.
Let’s face it, the sportswear trend isn’t going anywhere, but the streets of Milan provide the perfect inspiration for a fresh way to re-work the look. Mix your jersey piece with a tailored coat and heels, or your favourite pair of denim jeans for the ultimate in smart/casual.
Want to add a luxe touch to your daywear? Make like the Milanese style set and don a pair of statement earrings- the bigger, the better.
And the most intricate trend of the season? Embellished everything. Think skirts, jumpers, shoes and jackets decorated, bejewelled and encrusted.
