Make it yours: From trinkets to souvenir prints to the high speed of 80’s era sportswear, retro hints had Italy coyly mixing nostalgia with the perverse sense of being off. And several of the collections were smashing because of that boundless sense of whimsy & personality, packaged into the believable. But maybe kooky isn’t going to mesh with the reality of your needs or style? Not to worry, there’s no need for going full throttle, but you can add chic spurts of personality with vintage inspired jewelry, scarves and accessories without playing the part.

Mix & Match Mania-

Make it yours: There was a wild sense of play with prints, hues & era’s throughout Milan’s most definitive collections which added a sense of emotion to winter layers we haven’t seen in a while. Being a hardcore mix master as proposed is neither for the light hearted or those short on time. The easiest trick you can do to make your mark is to mix say a printed blouse with a non neutral hue, and a shoe that adds another sense of easy contrast.

The Long Lean Tunic-

Make it yours: You can never go wrong with a tunic that sits away from the body. They brilliantly cover problem areas while keeping you looking leaner & longer, and they make for smart weather proofing gear. Here, they were kept modern in interesting textures that weren’t distracting while worn with fitted pencil skirts.

Low Key Cocktail-

Make it yours: Whether covered in an array of light catching sequins or in a simple metallic mix, indulgent fabrications lent the season a novel sense of easy decoration in shapes that are as easy to wear as they are on the eye. Which is a savvy take on updating modern glamour in silhouettes that work on just about anyone. Keep it spare with one unique attribute that ups the ante.

The Generous Midi Skirt-

Make it yours: A proportion that started in New York made it’s way through many a collection as it works to give you ample coverage, while creating a layering foundation that sits away from the body. Which makes for a nice alternative in a dress heavy season.
