Chic in Milan

The fashion flock have moved onto Paris but let’s take a minute to review some street style looks from Milan. The main problem with most street style looks is that people are trying too hard.  I’ve chosen these ensembles because they actually look relatable, even the colorful ones.  And while most of us wouldn’t leave the house in a crop top you could replicate a similar look with a longer tank or throw a blazer over a crop top for a more modest look. 

I need this dress in my life!

I also need leather leggings and picked out this pair from Vince

For the record, I don’t advocate smoking. One reader accused me of being a smoker because I posted pictures of people smoking which I am not.  People in Europe smoke, that’s just the way it is.  

The clutch is the bag of choice during this fashion month.  I’d carry one too if I had a car and driver to stove all my other stuff but until then, I’ll continue to carry a tote. 

This is one of my favorite looks. 

This is the most covered up I’ve ever seen Anna Dello Russo!

The colorful mirrored sunglasses in many of the pics are from Spektre

While every street style photog snapped the girl in the red dress, I think the girl on the right looks chicer!

Ciao Milano!

    I love this post. And on this particularly dreadful New York City morning I took it upon myself to go back and look at some of your older posts. I just needed more pretty to start my day. While reading, I was struck by how far you have come from your first post. It’s just fabulous!
    I wish you continued success.
    Kind regards,

    Great article and fab clothes; your posts are so stylish,interesting and on trend. You don’t need to justify the smoking just as many Americans smoke as in Europe.

    Thank you for sharing my cynicism re: street style photos. The crazy outfits and reappearance of certain street style “celebs” are a pet peeve of mine. As usual, your good eye and taste have created a much more relatable, curated collection.

    Hmmmmm—looks like I need some green, loose black sweaters and cool jackets. Great post. Have a wonderful Saturday.

    This is wonderful! Wow great choices you’ve shown us…I love so many of them but if I had to choose the most elegant and beautiful I’d say the gorgeous woman in the houndstooth-check sweater with the little white collar, gold chain, black skirt, and black tote. Perfection and class. I loved them all however! Thanks.
