Denni Elias blog (Chicmuse) is aptly named, as she consistently inspires me to expand my style horizons. There’s a little superhero vibe to her look today that I am totally digging. There’s so much fun texture and pop prints, but it still feels refined in a youthful way. Those d’Orsay stilettos, however, are the scene-stealer for me. But, then again, I’m a shoe girl and can’t say no to a cool design.

I love seeing this gorgeous duo on the street, even if they cause a photographer frenzy! A coordinated look may seem like a risk, but I think Oksana and Maria can pull off anything. The simple contrasting palette and classic pattern look cute and sporty on Oksana and downtown chic on Maria. It’s great to see how they’ve each styled similar pieces to their personal taste.

The sleeveless belted coat is shaping up to be a trend to watch. I’ve spotted several in Milan, and there is something really interesting about the style. The pale blue color of Kayla’s trench is perfect for spring. A cashmere turtleneck and flared denim are de rigueur this season and pair well with the trendy trench.

While I love Chiara Ferragni’s wild sense of style, sometimes it’s nice to see her pare down her more unique sensibilities and just go for something cute and casual. Granted, only Chiara can make a metallic leather miniskirt seem low-key! A textural coat and bright bag are two trending themes this season, while premium sneakers are a must-have.

Fashion Week Journal for Tuesday, March 3

In case you were thinking Paris was going to kick off all featherlight and pinky froth, Each X Other took its turn in the YOYO room at the Palais de Tokyo at noon with a violin soloist in front of an abstract projection and then a heady text screen before look after look in chicified (that’s a word? yes, for now) pinstripe wool, sleek suiting references with bared shoulders, leather work gear for girls and nubby knits.

Don’t get me wrong, it was gorgeous. But it was serious business too.

Now this is an outfit I can see myself in. I think I’ve finally found the perfect pair of culottes, thanks to Anna. These military-inspired culottes get an A+, especially when paired with tall suede boots and an oversized sweater. The turtleneck has been ever-present this season, making me glad I invested in a few basics earlier this year! A mini bag adds a hit of color and pattern to this minimalist-chic look.

Shiona Turini is a regular on our blog, and with good reason—she’s got great energy and killer style! Today’s layered look is modern and bursting with trending color. Baby blue is still an ultra-popular tone, but red is coming up strong. I love the textural details in Shiona’s modern folk blazer, and the hit of patent leather shine her Chanel bag brings to the ensemble.

Trend Recap: Retro Pop

milan-fashion-week-aw15-trend-recap-retro-pop

An intriguing trend we’re seeing from Milan is a strong showing of retro, quirky color mixes. Mix up mid-century-influenced shades of olive, ochre, or pale pink with sporty brights for an off-kilter charm that’s still totally sophisticated.

Another show, another great look from blogger buds Celine and Annabel. Celine’s leather overalls are trendy and ultra-contemporary, especially when paired with a skinny neck scarf and Breton-style cap. Annabel went for a more sporty-casual look, and I love the unique dye pattern on her denim. The layering is interesting and gave me some ideas to experiment with. Grazie mille, babes!

In a sea of Italian style that’s full of wild colors and prints, Michaela’s subdued palette is calming. I love interesting proportions and layering, so of course I’m ready to copy this look from head to toe. She even makes me wish I wear glasses! A thick knit jumper and zip-up army jacket feel very ‘now,’ as do ankle socks with boots.
