The '80s are back, so grab a prom dress, invest in some shoulder pads and do your best power pose. Before Paris Fashion Week kicks off on Tuesday, catch up with this breakdown of the stand-out trends from the runways in Milan.
From bucket to newsboy, hats of all shapes and sizes were easily a standout trend from the Italian runways. Gucci offered the most diverse mix: Designer Alessandro Michele dressed models in knitted beanies, full-coverage balaclavas, branded caps and silky head scarves.
The brash, bold and busy elements of '80s style are back in a major way for next season. Naturally, Versace leads the pack here: From power trench coats to mismatched sweat suits, Donatella reimagined all of the era's cult classics for Fall 2018.
Seventies tones — think mustard yellow, tan, tangerine and all versions of brown hues — were another big story in Italy.
Continuing on from NYFW and LFW, security blankets remained a dominant trend in Milan. Paul Andrew's debut showing at Salvatore Ferragamo offered a more refined iteration in the form of knitted ponchos, while husband-and-wife duo Lucie and Luke Meier sent what looked like actual duvets down the runway at Jil Sander.
Flashes of ultra-bright, fluorescent color lit up Milan Fashion Week. Prada's sci-fi take on the theme was the most obvious standout hit.
If you only invest in one accessory next season, make it a waist belt. Iterations of the cinching outfit adornment are going to be everywhere come Fall 2018, at least if the Milan runways were any indication.
Real or faux, Milan-based designers didn't shy away from fur on the runway. Fendi's fuzzy sweatshirts are sure to be the biggest draw for street style fanatics: The genius design has already been snapped on Kaia Gerber and the Hadids.
From live puppies to imitation baby dragons — no accessory was too weird or wonderful for Milan Fashion Week. Gucci's freaky replica heads leant a nightmarish twist to the theme.
