Ece Sukan does it again! I think I’m getting a little obsessed with Ece and her amazing style. She always looks flawless and is insanely good at blending genres. I’ve been enjoying experimenting with the season’s military themes, and Ece’s maxi coat is covetable. Layering the utilitarian coat with a sleek moto and sexy thigh-high boots adds a whole ’nother dimension to the look. Can’t wait to see what Ece has in store for us in Paris!

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.

Considering: Flowers in Winter

Depending on what part of the planet you live on, you might be looking at those potted orchids in high-end grocery stores right now and thinking, “Those guys know how to live.” The very idea of a hothouse flower is ultra-alluring right about now.

How to replicate that warmth and exotic beauty in the pre-holiday doldrums? We think the Marni collections are a pretty darn good place to start.

Designer Consuelo Castiglioni has been in a floral place of late; the house announced a year-long celebration of its 20th anniversary by transforming a Milanese landmark into a flower market, and the dresses and separates currently on offer are a veritable garden of great style.

It got us wondering, actually, what her favorite stems and blossoms are. So we asked her.

“My three favorite flowers are peonies for colour and perfume, hydrangea for form and colors—such as pink, green and fading blue—and then white and pink tulips,” she told us via email. (Which explains this excellent Marni tulip tunic.)

Our favorite flower, if you’re wondering, is the killer abstracted mokara on that tough-sporty biker jacket. Yes, please. Does it come in a bouquet?

Rhian’s palette is so, so good. It’s both autumnal and bright, and has a touch of Seventies inspiration. The normcore style of a midi skirt and socks is très popular in Paris, and I love how Rhian’s simple cuts still stand out. Rhian’s sweater has a secret surprise, too: The back is covered with vibrant feathers!

Milan Fashion Week: September 21

Highlights from yesterday’s shows: textural details–some subtle, some not–reigned supreme at Marni, MSGM and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Marni Spring 2015

At Marni, the show opened with muted looks like a minimalist top and flowy pants cut from crinkled off-white fabric and cinched with a sweater-knit judo belt for a splash of contrast.

Megan is making florals look fierce! A bold floral is a must for fall, and I am totally into this peachy, tapestry-inspired pattern, especially when paired with a modern moto jacket. Minimalist accessories and makeup keep this look clean and chic, with a little bit of edge. The ultra-sleek oxfords are icing on the cake.
