7 Breakout Trends From Milan Fashion Week - Fashionista
Including — but not limited to — corduroy, pastels and more '80s redux.

Milan, the third city in our international fashion month tour, passed by in a whirlwind with six consecutive days of nonstop shows, events and in the case of Dolce & Gabbana, glorified Austin Mahone concerts. While we're still seeing remnants of trends from Milan Fashion Week's forerunners in New York and London, the Italian fashion capital always makes a statement — or two or six or 12 — of its very own. Scroll through below to take a look at Milan's biggest Fall 2017 trends, and brush up on New York and London's top takeaways from the season when you're done.

CORDUROY

This durable fabric first showed up in at Marc Jacobs in New York, but it wasn't until Miuccia Prada showed it in bulk that we knew for sure this was one of the top textile choices of the season.

PASTELS

Here's another point for seasonless dressing! Pastels are rarely favored for the fall and winter seasons, but Milan had something different to say about that.

SHEER DRESSES

Sheer, long dresses are a powerful counterpoint on the Milan runways — long enough to cover the entire body, but sheer enough that it doesn't really matter.

LONG SCARVES

The long scarf is the perfect example of where fashion wars with utility. The long scarf may keep you warm, just make sure not to trip on it!

'80s

The broad shoulders and power-dressing that we saw earlier this month in New York popped up again in Milan. Say it with us: Volume!

ROBE COATS

Cozying up in a robe coat is easy, and if Milan is anything to go by, you'll have plenty to pick from come fall.

SKIRT SUIT

Fall 2017's power-dressing trend doesn't always be represented by a blazer and well-tailored pants; Milan had plenty of skirt suit options from which to choose, too.
