Milan Fashion Week

25 Sep

It´s Milan fashion week and where better to get outfit ideas from??! From guests to bridesmaids, or even just for color inspiration, here are a few of the designs seen this week..

Pisa-high heels, studded or glitter starfish and seahorse motifs began popping up throughout the Versace collection on a pastel palate of light greens, baby blues and soft whites. At times, softer elements were introduced, such as light pleated layers on skirts and toga-like dresses.

Karl Lagerfeld offered a version of Milanese femininity at Fendi. Wide straight-waist jackets were paired with high-waisted a-line skirts in soft greys, pale blues and camel. Throw some breezy striped cotton ensembles and floral appliqués in, and it all made for fresh yet decisively feminine silhouettes, perfect for a fresh, outdoor wedding guest look.

D&G explored one simple theme: scarves. On shoes and hats, even as belts! Giant scarves became dresses and tiny ones kept sandals strapped onto feet. The collection consisted of head-to-toe silk looks: dresses mid-way between cocktail and beach wear in bright yellows, pinks and turquoise. Floor length, airy cotton dresses worn off the shoulders, suggested a Mediterranean touch, great for beach weddings.

I´d buy most of these outfits if I could but the budget can´t be stretched that far haha! Still it´s nice to look and I´m sure most of you will find something to inspire them 🙂

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
