4 Outfits I'm Copying From the Cool Girls in Italy
While the outfits on the street during Milan Fashion Week were a mix of styles, the ones I gravitated toward most were full of colour. Not just a little colour, but full-on bold shades like bubblegum pink, chartreuse green, vibrant lavender, and citrine. What’s surprising about these colours at this time of the year is that they, well, feel much more spring or summer than they do fall. But guess what? That’s the direction things are heading this season.
Instead of the fall standbys like black and tan, the dominant colours on the street style scene are just the opposite. Sorbet shades and delicate pastels are just about everywhere—and this editor, whose closet is a sea of neutrals, is very much on board. While I won’t be abandoning black in my wardrobe anytime soon, prepare to see inspiration from Milan Fashion Week coming through in my wardrobe in the form of all of these fresh colours I’ll be reinterpreting for myself.
Ahead, I’m breaking down the seriously cool outfits I’m copying from the fashion set on the streets of Milan.
If you want proof that there isn’t anything as impactful as a monochrome outfit, just look here. Layered shades of pink look very on point.
Try out pretty pastels with a combo like yellow and robin’s-egg blue. I certainly want to try the combo after spotting this perfect outfit.
Far more traditional colours like red and forest green are still in the mix—but paired with modern hues like metallics.
Yes, here’s even more colour—and an example of why purple and green are one of the coolest and most unexpected combos.
