We’ve already covered the New York Fashion Week spring 2016 street style and the London Fashion Week coolest street fashion moments. Now we are on to the street looks of the Milan Fashion Week, where the trendiest ladies of all rule off the runway. Whereas the other fashion week streets were full of more relaxed, comfortable and a bit more casual styles, in Milan, the idea was to look more on the professional side it appears. Half a month of fashion has already gone by and we cannot help but stay wowed by it all, all those incredible pieces floating onto the runway. Sometimes they simply did not do their designers or House brands justice, but mostly, we have been faced with a barrage of magnificent talent that is hard to forget anytime soon. It will leave us satisfied until the next batch of Fashion Weeks, this time pointing us in the fall and winter 2016 direction. Nevertheless, we are here now to discuss the coolest Milan Fashion Week spring 2016 street style moments that can serve as a big dose of inspiration for building up day-to-day and special occasion outfits.
While the first day of the Fashion Week runway shows was rainy, we were still very much bombarded with displays of incredible fashion sense. The following day that changed a bit as the more daring, or confused, ladies appeared in bare shoulders, side by side with those in coats, in sandals compared to those in patent leather boots. This confusion in style would continue throughout the week, though it appears Milan has warmed up as more and more street styles are reflecting the sleeveless or lightweight tops and dresses instead of being swaddled in heavier coats.
On the streets, we have seen some incredible pieces, from gorgeous midi length ruffle hemmed black dresses with little girls matching in style (because apparently this is the perfect mother-daughter event) to laser cut floral designed midis that put the spring fashions to shame. We see patterns like houndstooth and leopard stripes and florals, and more than one person was spotted in a Dolce & Gabbana outfit from the FW 2015 collection shown off months back. Cropped tops and fitted denim make for a common theme on the more casual of days, while it is expected that we are going to have a whole ‘70s theme going on. Leather appears on the streets alongside softer looking materials, with suede and cashmere looking awesome beside the corded knits and furry ensembles. A few plunging necklines, a few polka dotted skirts, a touch of alligator print and a whole lot of transparency later, we know we’ve seen some of the better street styles for the SS 2016 Fashion Weeks yet.
In terms of accessories, we really have to outline those handbags, as we see fur accents on boxy, cherub picture frame versions with small handles to those with big kissing lips adorning the face of it. We see blue fur stoles over the shoulders and rounded bowler or felted floppy hats. And have you noticed the watches? It appears that for the wrist jewelry, we are looking at larger and rounder faced watches with metal bands, a very classic style that fits right in with the rest of the looks.
