At Milan Fashion week there were a number of runway looks we fell in love with. We just couldn’t wait till Spring to take on these styles. So we took a few of our faves and reworked them to wear now!
Brioni’s Spring 2011 collection featured lace in a big way. We were intrigued with the way intricate lace became simple with a sleek pencil skirt. The style is reworked for fall with warm neutrals and a fur vest.
We’ve seen technicolor on a few runways, but appreciated the way this look from Aquilano.Rimondi was toned down with a pastel blazer. To take it into fall we ditched the shorts for a knee length skirt and added charcoal tights.
This Spring look from Iceberg is so simple it was easy to transition for fall. As much as we love the scarf, we decided to give you a shirt to wear instead. We also swapped the trousers for jeans and added knee high boots making the look a little more casual.
These are just a few of the looks that caught our attention. Stay tuned for more news around Milan.
