For the first day of Milan Fashion Week, we couldn’t ask for a better show location than the Piazza del Duomo. Italian fashion blogger Chiara Biasi stood out in the crowd, thanks to her fabulous mixed patterns.

Volume is a key element to this season’s best trends, and Chiara is rocking this oversize coat and gathered skirt. Her global prints are on the money, and I love that she uses a white tee to balance it all out.

Candice Lake is practically Wonder Woman in my eyes. Not only does she have impeccable taste, she’s also a skilled photographer, model and all-around fashion maven (check out her website). Plus, she just had a baby! Candice looks classically feminine and chic. The full skirt is the most popular cut of the season and this pink-hued number is stunning. Retro inspirations are clear, but this look is perfectly contemporary.

Even more white! I really hope this trend stays around for a while. I love the clean, crisp effect of an all-white ensemble. Golestaneh’s style is understated and casually chic: I love the oversized fit and relaxed draping, and the Valentino bag and metallic heels add some premium elements to her low-key look. And who doesn’t love a woman in a hat?

Nothing says Burberry like a classic trench coat, and these blonde beauties are perfectly paired. The base of their looks may be the same, but they each have clear individual style. Leather leggings and Valentino heels are urban and edgy, while lace-up stilettos and modern cat-eye sunglasses have subtle sex appeal. Love the look, ladies!

I can’t wait to try out the new metallic trend, and this Studio 54–inspired skirt is the first thing I’m going to get! While the golden, pleated midi skirt has a ’70s feel, Soraya pairs it with a contemporary moto jacket and sleek-cut blouse, which modernize the look. Updated aviators and a designer clutch give this outfit even more trend power.

We are going to have to start calling our page “Tamara’s Thread” if this keeps up. Tamara (Glam and Glitter) has been stealing the show over here, but I can’t help it: She has such a fun and trendy style! Leather continues to be a top texture for her, and this pleated mini is a stunner. Tamara’s printed, cropped sweatshirt is a great blend of casual and cool, and lace-up stilettos and a bright Proenza Schouler satchel push this look even further into urban chic territory.

Kerry’s back and she means business! Not everyone can pull off a fanny pack, but Kerry Pieri is handling the tricky trend with aplomb. Of course, luxe materials and a premium design help take this piece out of the mall and into the realm of street style.

Kerry’s pink pleated midi skirt is a top trend, in both color and cut. This look is full of modern femininity, but has fun touches that add a little quirky edge.

As the fashion news director at Glamour, Jane Keltner de Valle is responsible for steering trend and news coverage for the magazine. I’d say they are in good hands! Jane has classic taste and stays true to her personal style.

I like how Jane adapts trends to suit her level of refinement. Today’s look is a beautiful blend of texture and trend. Lace and mohair are the ultimate in feminine texture, but Jane makes them look interesting and fresh.

Michelle is one of the sweetest Fashion Week photographers out there. She manages to balance her hectic schedule and job demands without sacrificing her personal style. While comfort is key, style is also paramount, Michelle says. I love this nod to the military themes we’re starting to see for fall, while keeping it modern with leather shorts and a graphic tee. See you in the trenches, Michelle!
