Milan fashion week was everything. After two weeks in New York and London we were seeking something refreshing, and the gorgeous Italian glamour and luxury fashion houses gave us just that. These pieces are filled with personality, an inner alter ego and overwhelming character.
Milano is magical.
Milano is marvellous.
Milano is magnificent.
Most of all Milano is all about mastery.
Fausto Puglisi, Giamba and Versace
Colour was everywhere on the Milan runway, just bigger and brighter than ever. We often find such trends present and dominant within Spring/Summer collections but it’s transgression to Autumn/Winter are more than welcomed. These girls are unafraid. What is your aim when you wear such an ensemble? To have all eyes on you, and the use of block colours allow just that, beautiful beyond belief. These shades are understated and deviate from conventional tones which are perfect for those Autumnal months when outerwear is everything but sometimes warmth can override style. These ensembles and the best-dressed lists fit hand in hand.

Sportmax and Trussardi
Have we found the most perfect day to night wear? These are power pieces that will be the envy of the office during the day and all the fabulous bars as soon as it’s time clock off and have drinks with your girls. Peplum on peplum is a trend that has only just entered the spotlight but it has somehow always been there subconsciously. The key to ensuring this trend excels is tailoring, and the Sportmax runway have made us excited to embrace this unconventional technique. Leather, on the other hand has the ability to add a little edge to every ensemble and held an overwhelming presence in Milan. It just so happens this Trussardi look is my favourite due to its delightful colour paired with those gorgeous dark lips.
#3 Tailored trousers
Prada, Philosophy, Gucci
Tremendous tailoring in the form of trousers was everywhere because hellooo darlings … us 21st-century girls are ready to dominate. Tailored trousers are the ultimate go-to piece when it comes to power dressing as they are ridiculously flattering and can be worn in so many different ways. My favourite of this amazing trend found on the Milan runway are those darling Prada skinny flares, we could never imagine ourselves wearing something as such … until now that is.

#6 The ensembles that tell a story
Dolce and Gabbana
These two revolutionary designers brought something amazing to the Milano runway. The Dolce & Gabbana collection and show as a whole, was a celebration of mothers. We saw babies and young children walk the catwalk with their mothers for the first time. The use of embroidered florals on monochrome palettes were a perfect balance that represent roles as a fashionistas and those found in motherhood.
