Sarah is currently traveling the world and enjoying a beach somewhere so I am here to keep you posted on what went down in Milan Fashion Week. I’ve never been a huge follower of Milan Fashion Week (for some reason that’s always the one I skip), but it was interesting following it this year because it is so much different than the other three. It’s got brighter colors and a bigger mix of Latin-inspired, feminine, and edgy styles. There are daring silhouettes, social statements, and patterns everywhere. So, let’s get started with our recap, shall we?
Honestly, this looks so normal I would wear it every day of my life. The comfort level has me sold, and the sash around the waist combined with the neckline adds the right amount of class.
I absolutely adore this silk scarf around the head trend that’s coming for us this spring. It feels very 60’s mod and I am 100% about that life. The silks and lace throughout this line gave my little girly heart everything I could ever want out of clothes.
Again, the wearability of this line makes me so overjoyed. The rose gold chokers with the blush sweater and coat is something I could see myself wearing on a daily basis. Both of these dresses are killing it, and I can’t wait to try this casual overwear on top of a fancier dress.
DOLCE & GABBANA
It was hard for me to choose a favorite from this line (duh, it’s Dolce & Gabbana), but I ended up choosing these two. Look 13 is a fun version of the LBD. It’s sexiness isn’t over the top, but still entirely evident. In look 63, I’m obsessed with the pattern of the fabric and the cut of the dress. It’s so classically Latin inspired (like most of the line) and I adore it’s flirtiness.
Yes, Agnona, yes! The florals, the colors, the cuts, the layers. There is nothing I don’t like about these three looks. Honestly, I’m hoping to mimic them (because God knows I can’t afford this) this spring. They’re the perfect looks for work.
Layering is obviously a necessity in spring (I would imagine, you know, if you live in a place with seasons – which I don’t), and this is such a quirky way to do it. The colors don’t initially seem like they should go together, the patterns are haphazard, but it somehow ends up looking like the perfect balance between casual and high fashion. Plus, that top knot is something to die for. Also, THE CHICKENS on the skirt? Yeah, I had to look a few times to figure out what was going on there. Rad.
In a lot of the Milan shows, there were throwbacks to different era’s fashion. This 70’s throwback is one of my favorites. The silk shirt combined with this mermaid-ish cut skirt makes the hair/makeup/accessories look modern. Also, can I have one of these skirts in every color? Kay, thanks.
Just… I cannot even handle how perfect La Perla’s lingerie is. I just want to wear it every day and pretend I’m Blair Waldorf.
This dress looks like the sky, the wind, the clouds. The way it moves makes it look like it’s blowing in the breeze. It’s so romantic and dreamy.
Literally me on the beach every damn day of the summer.
Here is another example of the fashion throwbacks. This line is full of 40’s looks, with the buttons on the shoulders, high necklines, and high-waisted pants. The makeup was natural and glowing, perfect for a fresh spring look. Here is Gigi Hadid killing it.
I would wear these every day for forever. Perfect LA office wear. Layers for the cool spring mornings, comfy shoes for the walking up and down stairs. The color combos and effortless layering makes these looks 100% wearable and still uniquely on trend.
FOR RESTLESS SLEEPERS
I am going to be honest with you, I can’t tell if these are pajamas or clothes to wear out, but I would wear them either way. This makeup look is something I’m also going to try to replicate. The matte red lip is still alive and well and making this natural face dressy.
This coat?! The color is stunning and the cut is perfect for throwing on over dresses. Plus, pockets. So.
The roaring 20’s make an appearance in Armani’s line, and I am HERE for it. Loosely structured dresses, smudged makeup, and feminine pixie cuts make appearances throughout the line, giving the whole look a fresh take on the classic flapper look.
First, let me just take a moment of appreciation for the beauty that is these shoes. Bless these. Also, long live the lazy girl fashion. I love how the loose dress is combined with a slouchy sweater tied around the waist and a classic pair of pumps.
Here we go, with Jeremy Scott making a statement about consumer culture with his stunning designs. Nothing says “consumerism” like dressing up real-life paper dolls. The optical illusion of these 3D dresses looking 2D must have been tricky to accomplish, although it first appeared in a runway show in the 1950’s. Overall, this is one of the most memorable runway shows I’ve ever seen.
One of my go-to looks is a black turtleneck, and I adore how it’s paired with these textured hot pants and a simple bobby pin to pull back the hair. It’s clean, simple, and 60’s mod refreshed.
This color and the slouchy cut of this dress-over-pants combo makes this look something fresh for this spring. I do not understand the glasses at all, but you can’t win ’em all.
I had to refrain from picking every single on of the looks from this line. I’m not exaggerating at all. I’m serious. Cotton candy color schemes mixed with florals and flowy fabrics are what my dreams are made of. The embellishments and embroidery on each and every one of these looks adds a hint of fairytale to each piece; so, if I’m ever a princess, I will be wearing these.
Orange skin-tight pantsuit? With a suede stitched coat? I love it. Another modern take on mod. All this model needs is some heavy lashes on the bottom, and it’s basically a look for Twiggy.
This reminds me of Santorini, Greece. The blue florals with the contrast of the stark white give these dresses a fresh Mediterranean look that I can’t stop staring at.
Okay, LBD taken to the next level here. The fringe, neckline, and lace remind me of another extremely creative take on the flapper. I’m obsessed with the layering of different fabrics in this dress. Why wear one fabric when you can wear them all?
And last but not least, here is another look to wear to the beach. I love the lace bralette with the high-waisted shorts. I’m not really a fan of wearing shorts, but I’d wear these in a heartbeat because they look like a skirt. And the long kimono-type cover-up is delicate and beautiful. Obsessed.
And there ya have it! Milan Fashion Week is done and I miss it already. Luckily, Paris is up next, and that one is always my favorite of the fashion weeks. See you in a few days!
