These are Our Favorite Looks from London and Milan Fashion Weeks

The fashion craze isn’t over just yet. We head on to London and Milan and pick up our favorite trends from the runways across the pond.

The fashion parade goes on, this time on the other side of the pond. London and Milan Fashion Weeks had a touch of each city’s distinct personalities–the former it’s cool, slightly grittier aesthetic, and the other’s artistry and homage to heritage.

Either way, the runways in London and Milan were host to some of the most creative ensembles we’ve seen lately. (I mean, a model opened the Gucci show with a model of her own head tucked under her arm!) But among the avant-garde are more street-friendly looks that we can’t wait to emulate.

Shine Bright

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Temperley London, Erdem, and MM6 Maison Margiela

It’s like a moth to a flame. There’s something coolly confident about wearing shine from head-to-toe, and we’re loving the metallic looks from London, whether it’s gilded bombshell evening dresses or silver ruffles. A favorite would have to be from MM6 Maison Margiela, which incorporated different textures to the same metallic sheen–the electric pleated skirt and tailored vest bring some grown-up glamour to such a shocking sheen.

School Ties

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Versace, Emporio Armani, and Emilio de la Morena 

We have a feeling Cher Horowitz would have loved this season’s collection of skirt suits. In fact, I like to think the updated tartan set at Versace was inspired by Alicia Silverstone’s iconic yellow suit. Even if it isn’t though, we can’t help but admire this sophisticated take on the preppy staple.

Split Screen

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Marni, Missoni, and Salvatore Ferragamo

Apparently, one pattern isn’t enough to look chic–the runway featured ensembles that brought two different patterned textiles together in one chic look. We love the contrast of the bold red and fuchsia on Marni, but Salvatore Ferragamo takes it to a whole other level. Not only did they bring two different fabrics together in one dress, they matched the coat lining to each individual side for a look that’s coherent and tres chic.

Ethnic Cities

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from DSquared, Etro and Missoni

We love a good boho look, and so do London and Milan, it seems. A number of tribal looks made it to the runway. Ponchos in colorful prints, maxi dresses, and fringe details are just some of the details we can’t wait to infuse into our own wardrobes. For one, Etro’s take on the blanket coat is a piece that would definitely spruce up our basic looks.

The Cold Shoulder

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Gucci

The off-shoulder top may be semi-retired from its seasons around the circuits, but that doesn’t mean we’re over this particular body part just yet. This season saw a lot of emphasis on the shoulders. There were suits with shoulder pads, cut-outs on the clavicle, and oversized epaulets on boxy coats and jackets. We especially love how Fendi did it–a demure collar, a white-on-white version of the same fabric as the rest of the dress, and a sheer panel to tease just a hint of skin.
