Milan Fashion Week, easily the loudest of the weeks, has come to a close. From the gaudy yet gracious looks of Dolce & Gabbana to the satirical and stylish garments from Moschino, Milan reminds us why it is a powerhouse of fashion. Let’s take a look at the top looks from MFW, and dream of how we’ll be incorporating them into our closets in the coming months.
Crochet was woven into Milan Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Alberta Ferretti’s full-length crochet dress seems ideal as a beach coverup, while Dondup’s dress holds it’s own. Dolce & Gabbana and Etro featured thicker crochet garments and Blumarine ‘s loose top is layered beautifully over snake print biker shorts.

Orange overwhelmed the runways this season in Milan, Antonio Berardi proves that with a beautiful, watercolor style evening gown. Ermanno Scervino’s cocktail dress features ruffles similar to an orange peel, and Fendi’s stylish trench is paired perfectly with paper bag shorts. Sarah Battaglia’s orange pinstriped dress is reminiscent of beach picnics, while Versace’s orange dress features a lovely lace detailing on the side.
Orange you glad for Mood Fabrics:
The 2018 color set that took last year by storm has reinvented itself for 2019. MSGM and Dolce & Gabbana stay traditional with the bright primary colors, while Marco de Vincenzo makes playful pastel. For Restless Sleepers goes with more muted tones for playful, and La DoubleJ layered playful over black and white for a lovely pop of primary colors.

Polka Dots were popular this season, with the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino sporting these looks in many ways. RTA layers a polka dot cardigan over a sheer polka dot blouse, while Cividi layers a polka dot dress over a polka dot turtleneck. Max Mara shows a stunning trench in polka dot over a lovely suit of, you guessed it, polka dot.
Play with polka dots:
Although modesty took New York by storm, Milan dressed it down with the most revealing garments possible. Fausto Puglisi flashes some stomach with waist cutouts, despite the floor length and high neckline, while Nabil Nayal simply shows a sheer dress. Marco de Vincenzo’s dress and blouse give a peak of undergarments, while Genny and Prada showed simple chest cutouts.
