Clara said she loves layering for fall. I couldn’t agree more! Autumn is the best season for mixing textures and piling on accessories. Clara’s voluminous scarf and chunky knit sweater had me pining for cooler temperatures. Meanwhile, her casual skirt and white tennis shoes are firmly planted in summer, making this a perfectly balanced transitional look.

I love how far overalls have come: from the fields to Fendi! Dominique is totally pulling off this contemporary pair. The slim fit and leather straps are thoroughly modern and have an urban edge. Her tie-neck blouse softens the look. Nude heels and a designer bag dress up this outfit even more.

Eleonora Carisi is a staple of the Milan Fashion Week crowd. As one of the most famous Italian bloggers (JouJouVilleroy), Eleonora represents her country’s chic reputation well. I am consistently inspired by her personal style.

Today’s outfit is a feminine take on menswear tailoring. I love the wide, cropped trousers, and pale pink is the color of the season. A fuzzy box clutch and sky-high heels add just the right amount of fun to her sleek look.

I can’t wait to start experimenting with one of the season’s hottest new trends: military chic. Joanna looks stunning in her army-inspired outfit, which is both sexy and simple. A silk blouse and structured skirt are always a good pairing, while her lace-up stilettos are right on trend. The chain-strap bag and gold accessories add some hardware accents to Joanna’s look.

You know fashion is a priority when you’re Anna Dello Russo’s assistant. While Carlotta may not get as wild as her boss, she still has her own unique sense of style. The textured mini is a nod to fall, and the white tee and moto jacket are classics. And you have to admit: those sparkly boots are too fun!

Highlights from yesterday’s shows: Southwest boho, candy-colored fluidity and sophisticated sex appeal were the primary themes at three family-helmed Italian houses (Etro, Missoni and Versace, respectively).

Etro Sping 2015

The ’70s continue to dominate at Etro, where easy, flowing looks were splashed with Native American-inspired prints and the brand’s signature paisley pattern, often simultaneously.

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.

Trend Recap: ’70s Flashback

trend-recap-2015-milan-70s

Milan switches pace with a luxury look down memory lane that features late-’60s and early-’70s inspired head-to-toe looks. Beautifully crafted hippy/folk vibes offer fluidity, fringe and patchwork. We’ve also seen a more ‘buttoned up’ and neat approach with new structures featuring heavy topstitching, patch pockets and eyelet lacing. Leather and suede rule in these sassy yet sophisticated interpretations of a favorite era.

The Fashion Office

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.
