During the Milan Fashion Week, the streets of the Italian capital of fashion become a fantastic source of inspiration, with stylish editors, models and influencers dressed to the nines while they hop from one designer catwalk to the next.
Italian women are known for their elegance; they will never live home without makeup and perfect hair, let alone in during Fashion Week! The Milanese sartorial style is chic and clean, more minimalist than London for instance, but during Fashion Week, even when wearing neutral hues, the outfits are far from basic, either because of a modern oversized style or because of the many details such as pleats and several pockets.
Here are the major street style trends we’ve spotted at Milan Fashion Week:
Colour blocking and monochrome
Although many show-goers chose maximalist looks, especially for Gucci’s catwalk show; mixing patterns, colours and textures in Alessandro Michele’s style, colour blocking and monochrome looks are a thing in the Milanese streets.
Beige is the colour du jour at Milan Fashion Week, outwear and monochrome pantsuits in all shades, from sandy beige to camel. As we’ve already told you before, earthy colours are a strong trend for 2019, and we’ll keep seeing beige looks this and next season too.
Black leather is a popular choice among fashion editors and bloggers in Milan, who wear it with an orange turtle neck or with pastel blue and green accessories. Also, Fendi bags and baguettes invaded the streets as Fendi Fall 2019 was the last collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Bright colours, lace and tie-dye
We’ve also spotted some splashes of neon yellow and lime-green in accessories, but also head-to-toe looks in yellow or red. There were outfits with feminine lace, sparkling pieces and tie-dye, which is a trend we’ll be seeing quite a lot in the next months.
Many fashion enthusiasts are already rocking the military trend wearing cargo pants, pantsuits with plenty of pockets and also dresses and skirts in olive green. Military green is a fab colour for day and night, but remember to add some gold jewellery or chunky statement baubles to soften the masculine army style.
