Straight from the city that gave birth to some of the most beloved designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni, and Versace, Milan Fashion Week gives us new sartorial directions to swing into this coming spring! Apart from the show-stopping runway extravaganza that Versace put up this season, below are six trends that we're mostly looking forward to:
We're still on the ride back to the retro decade as designers continue to pull inspo from the colorful '70s. Studio 54 silhouettes are given new life with structured cropped playsuits, plunging velvet onesies, and shiny jumpsuits. They become renewed and revamped by the accompanying accessories as seen in the statement sunnies and textured bags and shoes that came down the runway.
It seems that in Milan, showing off your knickers is the latest trend to follow—as long as it's done in a tasteful way, with barely-there dresses that make a case for clever layering. Use your underpants to mix prints a la Fendi, or to get away with a fishnet-like textured dress as seen in D&G. Or, if you're quite on the conservative side, you can always make use of slip dresses to cover up a little.
Dolce & Gabbana
Taking cues from Prada's feathery accents last spring, more feathers have emerged on the runway this season. Whether you like them stitched on dresses with subtle wisps or full on fluff of a statement, these are guaranteed to provide texture and movement in your every step.

The humble sock gets the spotlight this season. It leaves its functional role for a more decorative one, either by providing a stark contrast or by complementing the overall look.
Milanos echo the same mantra: the more prints, the better! This time, the print on print (on print) trend gets a revamp with tamer hues, quirkier prints, more mixed textures, and more experimental silhouettes.
