10 Incredible Trends the Style Elite Championed at Milan Fashion Week

·2-min read

We always feel a little sad when London Fashion Week concludes for another season. There is, however, one thing that helps ease the pain of bidding it adieu: the glorious street style of Milan Fashion Week.

When it comes to having fun with getting dressed, no one does so quite like the Italians—or, at the very least, the joyful fashion types who descend on Milan. After all, with shows like Prada, Gucci and Fendi on its schedule, Milan Fashion Week is home to some of the most directional fashion houses out there, and the street style looks reflect this eccentricity.

More is more was undoubtedly the mantra of the Milan Fashion Week street style set this September, with exaggerated silhouettes, eye-catching prints and impressive displays of colour forming some of the key looks from the seven-day sartorial extravaganza. Even those who embraced more muted palettes and simpler shapes did so in a way that ensured they still made a serious impact by employing interesting layering techniques or a mix of fabrications.

However, of all the outfits we saw at Milan Fashion Week—we’re talking somewhere in the region of 800-plus looks—10 trends shone through, which we’ve dutifully documented for you below along with some essential shopping picks for you to jump into the looks for autumn.
