We might have moved on from gelati to croissants, but before we start reviewing what the French have in stores for us, let’s recap what it was all about in the Italian fashion capital. As it turns out fashion was vibrant, colorful with just about everything in exuberance. From sturdy and boxy to airy, fluid and elegant. FW2019 won’t be the season for minimalists. Instead: better start practicing your dress-up game. With bright colored patent coats, wide legged trousers and fantasy hats. With big bows, high collars, busy prints, lots of layering, chunky shoes and statement jewelry (not to mention the out of this world metal pieces shown at Gucci) upcoming fall/winter almost feels a little costume-y. Yet as always with fashion shows; they’re grand gestures to any trend you want to try out in your daily life in a more subtle way. Are you ready to get inspired by the Italians? Here are the biggest trends from Milanooo.

PLAIDS
Plaids (Donatella even managed to combine bondage and plaids for Versace)

BIG BOWS
Remember the Victorian collars from NYFW? The Italians opted for big bows.

PLEATED SKIRTS
Pleated skirts (turquoise colored and shiny patent as seen at Fendi, please)

POLKA DOT
As classic as the polka dot is, Marni and Alberta Ferretti showed a different take on the print.

CAPE IT
They have something fairytale-y about them (especially the ones shown at Dolce & Gabbana and Prada). Look extra sophisticated in a cape or cloak. Sophisticaped!
