New York and London may be in the rearview mirror, but there’s still plenty to do as the Fashion Month agenda heads east to Milan before wrapping up in Paris the first week of October. The Italian city’s usual suspects are set to show off their new collections, with Fendi kicking off the shows on Wednesday afternoon and giving way to Versace, Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta, Ermanno Scervino, and more afterward. . Of course, the street style at Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 is often as alluring as the runways themselves, so you’re sure to see plenty of guests pushing the envelope with their looks.
So far, aviator dresses, metallic ensembles and denim pants have been a major inspiration for outfits as they strike a balance between minimalist and edgy. In terms of color palette, pink, green and a combination of the two were particularly popular among fashion week attendees. Still, there were hints of classic Milanese style, with some street stylers seeking gold-detailed outerwear, flowing midi skirts and rich, neutral palettes. Overall, however, fashion-savvy locals and visitors to the city seemed to favor looks that spanned a long period, namely the 90s through the mid-19s (blue tights and Mary Janes are so Blair Waldorf).
