MILAN FASHION WEEK SS17: PART TWO

Besides New York, Milan is my absolute favorite fashion week so it’s sad to see it come to an end so soon. Here are the last few looks that I loved from this show!

Versace

Look 37

Versace is my favorite Italian brand so this is the show I was most looking forward to this week and it was even better than I could have imagined. I loved Donatella’s spin on sportswear. A lot of people have been saying that leggings are not fashionable lately and Donatella challenges that notion. I personally think that it is more difficult to make leggings look fashionable unless they have something about them that makes them different. These leggings are made in a way that makes it clear that the person wearing them is a fashionista. This look seems super comfortable and easy to wear and I love the simplicity of throwing on a backpack. Windbreakers are a ’90s staple and I love the way it is paired with matching leggings.

This is my all-time favorite look of the entire season. I stared at this dress for 10 minutes because that’s how much I love it. I like how it looks like there is lightning striking across Yasmin as she storms the runway. If David Bowie was alive and wore mini-dresses, I could totally see him wearing this. The different textures and the vertical lines are super flattering and I love the embellishments. This is the dress of my dreams, “When I go to sleep I dream Versace.”

Tod’s

Look 2

The sportswear theme continues at Tod’s. I think that that by wearing the same print in all of the pieces makes the model look very put together. Previously crop tops were almost only paired with a high waisted bottom, but I have noticed that a lot of people have been baring more skin this season. This is a trend that I am less reluctant to try, but I think that it is a cool way to display confidence.

Bottega Veneta

Look 79

This show featured the modern trend of monochrome. Using this trend makes an outfit look put together and calculated. I am currently searching for the perfect fall knits and I think this one would be great for this season!

Jil Sander

Look 12

This look appears intimidating at first, but I love the structured silhouette. Brands like Jil Sander and Vetements are loving the shoulder pads trend as well as wearing extra-long tops. I think that the long top looks effortless and super cool.

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

Look 34

I just love how romantic Philosophy makes their clothing as it appears to be fitting of a princess. The pastels and lace makes this look something to dream about. I love the way that the belt is knotted around the waist to modernize this gown.

Dolce & Gabbana

Look 50

This is the private school uniform of the future and I can’t help but wishing that my high school uniform was this cool. I think the visible stitching makes this preppy look seem more edgy. This could be worn anywhere from work to a party and I love how minimalistic it is. Golf shirts and wrap skirts are worthy of adding to your closet.

MSGM

Look 10

I love the stripes on this dress and when layered with a striped long-sleeve I think it looks sporty and high fashion. I wear a lot of fit and flare styles and dresses so I love whenever brands features clothing of this style. I am not a big fan of flats (I wear sneakers, boots, and heels only), but I am in love with the ballet-inspired shoes that have been gracing the runway in MSGM here as well as Miu Miu.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Look 43

I am shivering as we speak due to the sudden cold front in South Bend so I am loving this outerwear. Trench coats are perfect for this transitional weather and I love the way that this trench is paired with the yellow dress. Knits are always so cozy and I love seeing them used in different ways which is why I love these boots. I talked in a few past posts about how yellow is a trending color for this spring.

Missoni

Look 5

Knitwear and stripes are the two words that I would use to describe Missoni. I think this dress is the quintessential definition of their brand. It looks cozy and  could work in all four seasons. I read an amazing article on a day in the life of the designer and was fascinated by the simplicity of the brand which is housed in a small-town in Italy. I always look forward to seeing these knits on the runway and I can’t wait for more.
