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.

Then vs Now: 80's

The 1980's were bold and bright. Fishnets, shoulder pads and vibrant patterns were some of the iconic trends of the decade. Here are some Spring/Summer 18 looks that give off an 80's vibe.


Designers gain inspiration from natural elements quite often. From Chanel's waterfall skirt to Oscar de la Renta's gradient night sky tulle, these looks all mirror a piece of nature.

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.

Summer 2017: Vintage Trends on the Rise



The hobo bag became a staple in the fashion world after Jackie Kennedy was photographed with this Gucci style in New York in the 70's. Through the decades, the hobo style has persistently reappeared and continues to remain a part of pop culture. The style has proven to be timeless yet again as Laggo incorporates the slouchy elements into its new Havana bag.



Hollywood's leading ladies made the cat-eye sunglasses a fashionable accessory in the 60's. Audrey Hepburn wears a pair while filming for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. Channel your inner Audrey and pick up a pair of  Dior's Sculpt Cat-eye Sunglasses this summer!


Recently, we’ve seen a rise in round sunglasses, a comeback of the famed 50’s cat-eye, and now the timeless Aviator. Elvis Presley rocked this trend in 1972 and you can too this summer with Tom Ford's Elliot Square Sunglasses.



A true classic, the smoking slipper. Today, Gucci embraces the iconic shoe in its new Princeton collection that Grace Kelly wore so well back in 1955.



Neck scarves have also seen a huge revival this summer. The iconic Mary Tyler Moore fueled this trend through her various patterned scarves she wore on her show in the 70's. Fendi illuminates this trend through their wide collection of colorful printed silk-twill scarves.



We have also seen a resurgence of men's vintage fashion. John F. Kennedy Jr. rocks a grey striped skinny tie in a photo op during the 80's. Similar styles can be found from many designer tie collections such as Hugo Boss with its Dot Print Skinny Ties. 



Nicole Kidman was stunning in Fred Leighton's Open Opal Choker at the Academy Awards in 1996. This summer, you can shine like a star in Daughter's Honeycomb Shirt Collar Necklace.



Golden girl Faye Dunaway looked glamorous in the 60's in a classic straw wide-brimmed hat. Sensi Studio offers a modern take on this fashionable trend from the golden era through its Lady Ibiza bow-embellished toquilla straw hat.
