Helena Bordon is so good at elevating casual pieces into Fashion Week-ready outfits. This look is both simple and statement making. I love her retro patterned blouse and perfectly distressed denim. She also convinced me that I am in desperate need of a sleek pair of white stilettos to wear with everything this spring. A bright mini bag, with the must-have fur charm, adds some fun flair and bold color.

There are so many puns I could make here, since Laura has a law degree, but is also one of Italy’s top personal-style bloggers. However, I will restrain myself and just say that Laura is criminally chic (insert drum emoji). Sorry, sorry! Seriously, though, Laura is as stylish as they come, and I love her versatile take on contemporary trends. Today’s look is a great take on retro pattern and modern proportion. Sneakers add some unexpected, sporty flair.

Flared overalls are clearly a trending item this season. The Seventies takeover has dominated the Italian street-style scene, and Diletta is a prime example. This look is fully retro, but feels so contemporary at the same time. I love the sheen of these slim overalls and Diletta’s color palette is perfect for the throwback era. Long waves and a natural face work seamlessly with this Seventies style.

The sneakers-with-everything trend has no place in Sandra Hagelstam’s world. Her 5 Inch and Up style blog is all about the heel—and the more runway the better. The higher the better. The more editorial the better.

All hail the statement stiletto, really.

We met up with Hagelstam while we were both in London to get her thoughts on style from fashion city to fashion city.

Life has plenty of variables. Wouldn’t it be radical if  the future was a knowable thing? Well hold on, because it just got a lot more knowable-able.

Moschino is, of course, wildly popular in Milan. Laura is showcasing the new capsule collection, and it’s clear that the teddy bear is not just for kids anymore. Somehow, Laura has managed to make an outfit based on a child’s toy look chic and grown-up. Thanks to her sleek white separates, the kitschy cool Moschino bears really pop. Brava!

I can always count on Sofie Valkiers to have an impeccable ensemble. It can be tough to incorporate new trends into your wardrobe without compromising your personal style, but Sofie manages with aplomb. Her kimono-inspired chambray robe is a stunning statement piece. A bright turtleneck adds a bit of Sofie’s trademark color, while the touches of white throughout keep things clean and modern.

Diana is slaying this modern Italian femme style. White shirting is experiencing a major return, and Diana’s button-up pairs perfectly with this ultra-sexy textural pencil skirt. A top knot, cool shades and leopard heels add some sleek whimsy to the look. Va-va-voom, for sure!

Julia is channeling a grown-up Wednesday Addams with this ensemble. A black minidress with a contrasting Peter Pan collar is both sweet and goth. A leopard fur coat and steel-toe oxfords amp up the edge exponentially. If I could pull off a Louise Brooks haircut, I would steal Julia’s look in an instant!

This is a look that I would love to be able to emulate. Of course, I’m not sure I have the ineffable cool quotient that Chiara has! There’s something very vintage, and yet premium, about Chiara’s floral knit set and maxi coat. Her tall boots add to the retro appeal. Knit sets are an emerging theme this season, and one I can’t wait to try out.
