Liz Uy's Instagram feed is a fount of style inspiration. But we're extra excited to do some sleuthing over her 'grams whenever she hits the international fashion weeks. Liz's IG turns into our personal window into the hottest and latest trends to try, plus just how to wear them. And as we peered over her posts these past few days, Liz's snaps at Milan Fashion Week did not disappoint! In fact, we're bookmarking her OOTDs for our own pegs. Below, we round up her best looks straight from Milan and we dissect her styling techniques.
1. Sharp suits are a must.
The office staple continues to reign supreme on the streets. But as Liz demos, you have to choose blazers and matching trousers that feature interesting deets, like a slightly puffed sleeve or cinched trouser hems.
Bonus: You can even experiment with its prints if your style sits on the maximalist end of the spectrum.
2. Style neutrals with brights.
If you're not one to wear two or three bold hues at once, then consider polishing just a singular vibrant color with neutral tones. Like Liz, you'll achieve a look that's sophisticated without looking overdone.
3. Mix prints.
Here's a surprising styling lesson we gleaned from Liz's look: there are no rules in mixing prints. The more absurd and clashing the prints look together, the better! Just be sure to keep your clothes' silhouettes in familiar cuts to make the look still put together.
4. Earth tones are cool again.
Don't worry about looking like a tree. Liz has found the perfect solution to this dilemma as she showcases here just how pistachio green can elevate your pieces when paired with camel and tan tones.
5. Any outfit can be upgraded with the right accessories.
Even your most mundane coat (though this coat of Liz is anything but) can look cool when you add updated accessories. Boots, thick belts, slouch pouch, and slightly tinted sunnies are the key to a topnotch look. Pick out pieces that share the same color palette to further polish your OOTD.
