Milan fashion week coverage 2014

Sophisticated denim in Milan

With denim growing in sophistication to extend beyond the purely casual, the line of what’s sophisticated and what’s cool blurs in the best of ways. A pair of denim dungarees paired with white plimsole sneakers and a minimalist clutch makes for the kind of outfit you can wear to a wide variety of occasions.

A rare kind of bird: in Milan

A pastel pink feather-trimmed skirt might seem like the sort of thing you’d reserve for cocktail parties or ballet costumes, but it certainly need not be pigeon-holed (pun intended) into anything so fancy. Throw on a black blazer, sunglasses, and a pair of Balenciaga’s buckle boots, and your asymmetric feather skirt gets a whole new edge.

Tropical, Topshop, crop top: Eleonora Carisi

Going all matchy-matchy with your tropical print crop top and midi skirt could, at the simplest, warrant nothing but some neutral accessories. But this is fashion week, and Eleonora Carisi chose to go a little bolder with blue heels and a fuchsia-trimmed bag of her own design in collaboration with Patrizia Pepe.

Quirky chic: Candela Novembre

I’m not sure how to describe the strange tasselled adornments on Candela Novembre’s vest, but – to my overactive imagination at least – they could equally be googly round eyes curtained by thick cartoon lashes, or black anemones waving their tendrils curiously across a white sea. It’s a top I’d venture to say is downright strange, yet Novembre’s elegant frame, mesh-panelled skirt and dainty black…

Yes, sporty street style is still cool (gallery)

Yes, sporty is still happening. Yes, girls are embracing it because – let’s face it – we’re reluctant to let go of the fortuitous circumstance that sneakers are not only acceptable but cool. They’re comfortable, OK? And so, during Milan men’s week, various sporty accessories made their way into the street style rounds. From sun visors to sweat bands to sneakers: at the gallery are…

The baseball jersey gone chic: in Milan

In a bid to milk every drop out of the seemingly never-ending sportswear obsession, fashion has pilfered from every sport possible. Baseball has not been exempt. This street style look featured a Red Sox baseball jersey casually yet somehow quite neatly paired with white ripped jeans and red lipstick.

The itty bitty mini: in Milan

One of those truths: if all else fails, one way to get attention is to raise one’s hemline a little. And then raise it some more. This itty bitty mini was photographed in Milan.

Candy stripes & sweetness: in Milan

Chevron candy stripes, mary-jane heels and a tie-up cropped shirt – in combination – run the risk of being saccharine. Add in a studded clutch and tough aviator sunglasses, however, and the sweetness is counteracted by just enough spice.

Emma Watson in Dior, for Dior

The Dior couture fall 2014 show was always bound to net a few celebrities in its front row. Emma Watson was among them, dressed in a creation that was black, white, and perforated.

Unlikely combinations that work: the pink slip & sneakers

The more ingrained in fashion sporty chic has become, the more things have become acceptable accompaniments to sneakers. With the slip dress one of fashion’s latest obsessions, it was only destined to become one of those accepted things. But who would have thought that a feminine pink slip and heavy black Nikes could look so cool together?

The perfect slip: Patricia Manfield

Here’s a reality that may or may not be unfortunate, depending on your point of view (and your figure type). The delicate, bias-cut, silky slip dress is ethereally phenomenal on the right frame. Yes, it looks best when it skims hip bones and dips across serrated shoulder blades, and for those of us not blessed with those things we just have to accept that it…
