Forget Minimalism: Milan Favors Maximalism

Long live colorful prints and separates.

In with the bold, out with the bland. Milan knows how to punch it up and have fun with fashion, something we should all learn to emulate. Why save those leopard print pants or fur coat for a special occasion that will never happen? Life is the occasion, and it's happening now.

Take notes on how to add pizzaz to your wardrobe from the fine fashion set who attended Milan Fashion Week.


Timur Emek

Neutral furs are fine, but candy-colored ones are better.


Christian Vierig

Wear a leopard print coat over your favorite floral prairie dress for an eclectic, granny-chic look.


Melodie Jeng

Printed suit sets, lots of volume and barely-there glasses elevate your style status.


Vanni Bassetti

You can never go wrong with pearl-embellished platforms and mismatched stripes.


Christian Vierig

Canadian tuxedo feelin' too casual? Throw a fur stole across your chest and hang mustard yellow tassels from your earlobes.


Melodie Jeng

Playing it safe is so boring! If you're going to wear a suit set, opt for one with an eye-catching pattern.


Timur Emek

Print mixing isn't hard once you accept that animal prints are neutrals.


Christian Vierig

Still not ready to mix prints? Fine. Just wear one... from head to toe.


Christian Vierig

See? Everyone's doing it.


Christian Vierig

Modernize a vintage-style dress by letting a flowy skirt peek through to add movement and interest.

Or go full-on drama with a fur coat, coordinating skirt-and-top set and socks with satin sandal heels.


Timur Emek

I hope you're ready for a country comeback because cowboy boots and sweet, Ann-of-Green-Gables-esque dresses are creeping their way into the mainstream.
