Milan Fashion Week that has kept our fashionista minds busy for the last five days, and it is coming to an end, which means it’s high time we took a look at the best outfits this time not from the fashion catwalks, but from the streets. So Milan Fashion Week spring 2015 street style: what was it like?
The guests during the fashion shows in Italy definitely knew how to go for the brightest and chicest of clothing items: the most contrasting prints, the most saturated colors, the craziest shoes and accessories. The outfits that Milan fashionistas chose to wear during early Milan mornings or afternoons are probably more apt for social events or parties and not for everyday looks, but this fact does not anyhow lessen our interest in them.
Crazy and colorful aside, fashion shows all around the world never lacked those devoted fans of the black and white, and this year’s Milan Fashion Week was no exception. We saw knitted white sweaters and matching skirts with prints in black complemented with knee high black leather boots, high waisted pencil skirts in black and white houndstooth prints with matching long sleeve tops, high platform sandals in black and white, a simple white tee topped with black oversized jackets and paired with black midi skirts and so on.
However, this year’s Milan Fashion Week street style did not lack colors and the craziest of outfits either. We know we can always trust Anna Dello Russo to perfectly demonstrate what it is to combine the colors with the crazy. Vogue Japan editor who’s probably one of the biggest fashionistas in the world and just a plain cool lady, on the first day of MFW went for a blue and red colorfully printed short sleeve mini skirt, which she complemented with the craziest fashion accessories. First we had the cartoon bird perched on top of Anna’s head, then the chain and lock necklace and add to that a colorful small clutch with feathers and blue and bright pink sporty shoes with high necks, and a typical Anna Dello Russo outfit is ready: utterly stylish and cool.
Milan Fashion Week spring 2015 street style was also feminine and sensual, and even the girls who had opted for trouser suits, still looked rather flirty. Milan fashionistas presented to us interesting combinations of straight white pants with pale yellow turtlenecks topped with matching double breasted coats, black and white polka dotted skirts with thin red sweaters with yellow pointed toe pumps, green off-the-shoulder dresses adorned with green and brown leaf cutouts up on the front with black short neck boots, simple light green dresses with snakeskin prints pumps and so on. The abundance of colors in these looks proved that outfits do not have to be in neutral colors to be feminine and elegant. Of outfits in neutral tones we absolutely loved this feminine look with high waisted wide leg black pants, white blouse topped with a beige jacket and worn with black, white and pale green pointed toe pumps. Very simple and elegant!
Of all the major fashion shows, MFW is probably the most diverse and stylish, not only in terms of catwalk looks but also in terms of the street style of the guests. There’s just so much to see and discuss! And with September drawing to its close, we are also nearing the end of fashion shows for spring/summer 2015. But we still have one more fashion week full of spectacular shows we have been waiting for impatiently. Paris Fashion Week, here we come!
