Hot Street Style Trends from Milan Fashion Week!

Milan street style is awesome, especially during Fashion Week!  Love sauntering outside the shows almost as much as the shows themselves – seeing the different styles walk by, how everyone chooses a look just right for them – street style being a fashion show of it’s own!

 10 Hot Trends Spotted:

1) The Short Dress

If you wear a dress, dare to wear it a little shorter, coupled with high heeled tight fitting mid calf boots!

2) Shoes and Socks

The importance of Socks are not to be underestimated this season – the odder the more wonderful!




3) Green

Yes, Green, it really stood out this season with several green outfits spotted so if you have a green outfit in your wardrobe it’s time to drag it back into the front row of your wardrobe!

4) A touch of Fur 

Real or faux, a piece of fur is an almost must in everyone’s wardrobe – even if it is only for the feet 😉

5) Skirts 

Every length was seen but there is a trend moving more to the extreme lengths – either very short of mid calf.

6) The Power of Yellow!

Yellow has been a hot colour for a few seasons now and there’s real evidence that it’s here to stay for this coming season too!

8) Patterns with Patterns

No need to worry about matching patterns with plain colours – this season is all about wearing patterns top and bottom:




9) Dressed Up Denim 

Denim is of course here to stay, including ripped jeans but more to the point add some lace or another feature to come top in your denim this season.




10) Handy covers almost as important as the Handbag!
