Trend Recap: Embellishment & Cinched Waists
As Milan Fashion Week progressed, the runways saw more ornamentation and cinched waists.
Embellishment emerges as the new feminine look. Sequins, feathers, metal appliqué and gemstones adorn basic dresses, sweaters and outerwear. Asymmetrical and random placement feel the freshest—especially on monochromatic palettes and when offering a balance to the masculine influences we’ve seen at all fashion weeks.
The Cinched Waist
Milan Fashion Week shows further feminine dressing with the cinched waist. Dresses and skirts are cinched with all belt widths, from wide to skinny. Dominating this trend are minimal and clean belts with little hardware, but embellished and metallic versions are emerging as well. We love updating classic black with a new waistline.
