As we close the curtain on Milan Fashion Week, we're left in a flurry of fabrics and fashion. From tie dye to trench coats, vinyl to violet, Milan was alive with a passion for fashion. It's time for us to take a look at the top trends from this year's Milan Fashion Week.
Milan emulated mother earth this season, as earth tones made up a major portion of the color schemes for Spring 2018. Bottega Veneta's rusty red pants paired with a green top and brown coat, are perfect for spending the day advocating for the Earth, while Simonetta's fur vest and brown skirt can be seen at a cabin estate. Trussardi's sunset bra and brown pants were made for driving down the shore and relaxing on the patio, taking in the sea breeze, and Santoni's floral coat are ideal for April showers, whether you're splashing about in puddles or running from the rain. Erika Cavallini utilizes softer earth tones to create the perfect rainy day ensemble, for hiding away in a corner café or riding trains around the countryside.

The English language was plastered across many of the collections, some speaking volumes, while others saying nothing at all. Alberta Ferretti is ready for the weekend, with a stunning glittery jacket thrown over a saturday sweater, while Moschino admits that life is what it is with a "shirt happens" t-shirt, a great outfit for going to a rock concert or hitting up the New York club scene. Rossella Jardini reminds as all to be confident, with their "I am the most elegant woman I know" t-shirt, paired with stunning trousers that make this the perfect ensemble for luncheons. Gucci gives a warning to "Never Marry a Milford," and Au Jour Le Jour's "irreversible" t-shirt matched perfectly with their inside-out shorts.

Antonio Marras' head wrap is ideal for an afternoon in Milan, sipping espresso and shopping the finest designers, while Versace's was meant for convertible rides with the top down, winding through mountains and laughing in the breeze. For Restless Sleepers' head wrap is perfect for turning bad hair days into good wrap day, and Gucci puts a cap on the wrap that glitters, perfect for dancing the night away in a lover's arms.
