The Hottest Trends from Milan Fashion Week

Looking for a little style inspiration? The 2015 Spring/Summer Milan fashion week impressed us with bold colors, feminine designs, sleek cutouts, and slinky silhouettes. Fashionista.com points out some of the hottest trends we saw that week. First, we took a ride on the softer side with designers from Roberto Cavalli to Gucci, featuring sheer ruffled dresses in feminine pastel colors.

The Milan runway shows featured colors all over the spectrum: from soft and pastel to dark and bold. Green was a standout color being featured by many designers including Prada, Marni, and more. From army matte greens to shiny metallic aqua greens, this color was all over the runways in fun and refreshing ways!

Many of the runway shows turned up the heat with dresses and blazers featuring side-midriff cutouts. While we’ve seen cutouts a lot in the past couple of years, these outfits featured cutouts in a whole new way, making us rethink our standard blazers.

Last but not least, the runways featured looks with shimmering metallic silver, sometimes from head to toe! While I couldn’t imagine sporting a pair of shiny silver stretch pants, the silver dresses would be a cool, sexy alternative to your typical little black dress look.

This week’s outfit of the week goes to a beach-ready look on the Life of a Lady Bear blog. Michaela combines a casual blue button-down blouse with a pair of black jean shorts. The most important accessory that a beach-ready look needs is an awesome pair of shades! Michaela wears a pair of trendy black cat-eye sunglasses, which go perfectly with her stylish jean shorts! She keeps her jewelry simple with classic stud earrings and a thin silver bracelet. Add a touch of pink nail polish and you’ll be ready to walk along the beach in style with the sand beneath your toes. Check out the image below to see how you can get a similar look!
