Trend Report: MFW - Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear

The runways in New York and London this past month have sported some serious girl power vibes, manifesting in ultillitywear, bold shoulders, power shades, and garments calling for equality. Milan's runways seemed a bit different, more feminine and frilly, but certainly no less powerful.  

1. Womenswear

Milan ran with the women in menswear trend that we've been seeing that last few years, but gave it a much more delicate twist. Button-up, collared shirts were made from soft silks and gorgeous florals with equally flowy trousers and high-waisted skirts.

2. High-Waisted Leather

Elephant leg pants were huge last year, and while it seems like a lot of designers are moving back to the more fitted silhouette again, they're doing it with an interesting material - leather and faux leather. Several runways saw this cinch waist design in both shiny, patent leathers and more matte fabrics. Either way, the shape is gorgeous.

3. Pale Lace

It's true, lace never goes away, but whereas past runways featured a lot of striking black lace paired with chic leather, this season saw a lot of white, ivory, and pale pinks.

4. Animal Print

With minimalist fashion trends being so popular recently, animal prints have been few and far between. That seems to be changing though, as leopard prints were seen on the majority of the runways last week. The moto jacket dress Sara Battaglia is a particular favorite of ours. It can be recreated with a printed faux leather, or even a short pile velvet or faux fur. Other looks included silk skirts, blazers, and trenches.

5. Blush Pink

The pale trend didn't stop at lace. Light pinks kept cropping up in Milan, mostly in very feminine silhouettes; so if lace isn't your usual style, try silk chiffon or organza, or even go the feather route like Bottega Veneta!
