Milan Fashion Week 2019: MENSWEAR vs WOMENswear silhouettes

comparisons from MILAN FASHION WEEK

Given that menswear elements are continuing to grace womenswear designs, we thought it would be visually interesting to highlight how they were reflected on the runways of Milan Fashion Week.

Blazers and Jackets : This year, Milan’s top designers presented a slew of must have blazers and jackets. We love that these layering pieces are so versatile and that they can be styled in many different ways beyond the office. For those who prefer a stronger more masculine look we recommend sticking with darker colors and oversized silhouettes. And for those who prefer a softer more feminine look try brighter hues in fabrics that drape and move with you.

Dresses and Skirts: The same can be said for skirts and dresses in regards to strong and masculine versus soft and feminine… Layering them with blazers and jackets is always a fashionable choice where you can manipulate the mood of your look through colors, shapes and textures.

Pants and Jumpsuits: It will be a sad day when jumpsuits are no longer in style so we are pleased that designers are still moving forward with these super comfortable and chic styles. Here, leather pants accentuate the strength of women, while, conversely, the softer materials highlight the beauty and softness of women.

Milan Fashion Week

During Milan Fashion Week, we saw reoccurring trends such as metallics from New York and asymmetrical silhouettes from London. While these trends are circulating internationally, each designers' interpretation has been unique.

Milan Fashion Week - Better Late than Never!

Outwear is not just for the cooler months, it is a fashion essential for upgrading your wardrobe during all seasons - so I loved seeing Milan Fashion Week runways covered in classic outerwear pieces, but with an edge added!  For example Versace took the classic leather jacket silhouette and twisted it into a color block leather jacket that amps up any outfit.  Taking a classic item and adding a little something extra to it can really personalize your style. Here are some of my favorite looks:
