Street Style

Mohair is one of my all-time favorite textures. Mix that super soft, retro sweater with a metallic full skirt and I am beyond sold! This is a look that I can easily see myself sporting all through fall. There’s so much fantastic texture, and the easy fits are immediately wearable. Daria’s oversize clutch and embroidered loafers add even more autumnal inspiration.

It was a dangerous afternoon at Gucci by the Milan tramway, but it was also irresistibly picturesque. Clara lived on the edge and hopped onto the tracks for this photo, and I’m so glad she did.

I am a sucker for plaid, so I was completely taken with her mixed-pattern blouse. A bold bag and cross-strap heels are city chic, while her simple white midi skirt is classic and clean.

Ece Sukan is a staple on the Fashion Week circuit, and deservedly so! She has played so many roles in the fashion world, from magazine editor to TV host. Ece has incredible style and always manages to stay true to her personal aesthetic.

I love this laid-back look, with its hints of preppy chic. The monochromatic blue unites the subtly mixed prints of her separates, and menswear-inspired loafers and a classic buckle bag are wonderful complements.

Women in Milan have a classically chic sense of style, and Rita is the epitome of la donna italiana. This outfit is a mastery of the mixed-print trend—her patterns are understated, yet the overall look makes a seriously modern, woman-in-the-city statement. Valentino heels and a Fendi bag may have a little something to do with that!

I can always count on Linda Tol to knock a look out of the park. This Dutch street style star has a unique perspective on fashion and a great sense of humor, considering she can’t walk two feet without a dozen photographers stopping her. Today’s ensemble is a great balance of relaxed cuts and fall textures. The tall boot is integral for fall, just like the graphic jumper. Until next time, Linda!

This outfit is all I want to wear for fall. A conceptual crop top, textural full skirt and slingback pumps are spot-on trends for the season. Nichelle has found the perfect colors and cuts to complement her figure. I love retro-modern silhouettes and Nichelle has totally nailed the ’50s redux look. Grazie mille, bella!

The lovely Italian blogger Gilda Koral Flora (Thank God It’s Friday) has been featured on our blog before, so I obviously had to style-stalk her again! Gilda’s fabulous mixed-print look speaks to both the modern picnic and global themes we’ve been tracking this season. A relaxed button-up and a slim pencil skirt are the ultimate in Italian style. Chic d’Orsay pumps and a kitschy-cool clutch cap off the look.

Marie Elise stopped me in my tracks, no pun intended! She was crossing the tramway and just looked so effortlessly stunning that I felt compelled to take a quick snap. This outfit is totally “Milan” and simply chic. Her pastel blazer is a perfect relaxed fit and matches her printed trousers flawlessly. A textural top and clean white clutch tie it all together.

For the first day of Milan Fashion Week, we couldn’t ask for a better show location than the Piazza del Duomo. Italian fashion blogger Chiara Biasi stood out in the crowd, thanks to her fabulous mixed patterns.

Volume is a key element to this season’s best trends, and Chiara is rocking this oversize coat and gathered skirt. Her global prints are on the money, and I love that she uses a white tee to balance it all out.
