The shows from the second day of Milan fashion week couldn’t have been more different from each other. From effortless at Emporio Armani to lace and frills at BluGirl, day two covered a wide spectrum of aesthetics. The oversized trend seemed to remain constant on the runway, and sheer fabrics made multiple appearances as well. These shows featured a predominantly neutral color palette, relying on texture and patterns to create interests in the looks.
The MaxMara show was a gorgeous display of just how right neutrals can be. The collection stayed away from the bright colors that dominated the runway last year, playing instead with mixed patterns and textures. Leopard print, plaid and knits kept the oversized separates youthful and fun, while nodding to a more classic vibe.
The BluGirl collection was sweet and sophisticated. Lace, sheer panels and sparkle made these ready-to-wear looks as feminine as can be. Floppy hats and flower crowns completed the overall aesthetic. Messy hair helped the looks stay fashion-forward and out of pageant girl territory.
Emporio Armani was the epitome of effortless fashion. The show featured extreme draping paired with menswear inspired blazers. The natural waved hair and minimal make-up completed the care-free vibe. Pastel colors and mixed patterns prevented the collection from becoming boring and forgotten.
Whimsical printed coats and metallic socks with bows? A definite do at the Prada show. The mostly black and white collection was broken up with daisy graphics and pops of red. This collection can be pulled off by fashionistas who aren’t afraid to walk that fine line between ridiculous and chic.
