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.

I can always spot Tina Leung from a mile away, thanks to her cutting-edge style and modern, sleek aesthetic. She always has the most amazing accessories (hello, lace-up stilettos!) and beauty looks. While I’m not usually bold enough for animal print, Tina is making me reconsider. This leather look is pitch-perfect Milano. Ciao bella!

Celine and Annabel are BFFs, both in life and in style. Today they’ve coordinated their retro redux ’70s ensembles. While Celine went for a natural palette and creased trousers, Annabel is rocking a denim dress (hot new trend alert!) and slim-fit turtleneck. These ladies make the ’70s trend look modern and casually cool.

Daria is a street-style darling and an absolute sweetheart. I love her smile and positive energy. It doesn’t hurt that she has awesome style to boot! I’m pretty much obsessed with this amazing dress and its deco pop print. A sleek moto jacket and jeweled choker add some modern edge. Plus, these knee-high boots are one of the best pairs I’ve seen all season.

Culottes were the breakout stars of the year and continue to dominate the street-style scene. Kayla’s graphic striped set is ultra modern and perfect for spring, especially when paired with the season’s hottest sandal: the mule. A butterscotch moto jacket neutralizes and complements the contrasting-stripe motif.

Tasia’s look is all about femininity and texture. Texture is one of the top themes of the year and this modern embroidery evokes springtime lace. Updated utilitarian coats are an emerging trend, and I love Tasia’s khaki number. Thigh-high boots are obviously still numero uno in the footwear scene, and unique handbags are rounding out the top purse trends, as well.
