THE BIGGEST TRENDS IN FASHION

DS: “A pair of trousers (Milanese women like them a lot), flat or very high-heeled shoes, one of your boyfriend's pullovers, big necklaces and an IT bag.”

FET:
“Simplicity: a tailored shirt, light cashmere, flats such as Porselli ballerina shoes, cigarette trousers, and an old or vintage piece of jewellery. The purse: it must be classical but with no logo. Choose eyeglasses and sunglasses wisely”.

THE BIGGEST DAYTIME TRENDS FOR WORK

DS: “A jacket, a pair of skinny trousers, a masculine shirt and a pair of loafers. Or else: a dress, a pullover and very original shoes.”

NT: “A total black look teamed up with ballerina shoes.”

FT:
“A pair of narrow trousers, a pair of flats, a masculine shirt and a ponytail.”

FET: “A blazer, a silk shirt, a pair of skinny jeans and ballerina shoes. And don’t forget: a perfect manicure in a
trendy nail polish shade.”

THE BIGGEST DAYTIME TRENDS FOR THE WEEK-END

DS: “A pair of jeans, a baseball style T-shirt, a pair of Tod’s, a coloured V-neck pullover, and a jacket or a pashmina scarf.”

NT:
“A pair of jeans, a white shirt and a wicker basket for you bicycle.”

FT: “A long skirt and a pull-over.”

FET:
“A ponytail, a pair of leggings, the latest sneakers or a pair of UGGs, a long cashmere cardigan and your iPod music playing in your headphones. To finish the look: scarves or pashmina scarves.”

NT: “The same outfit as the one worn to the office but with high heels instead of ballerina shoes.”

FT: “A pair of leather trousers and a jacket with shoulder pads.”

FET:
“IT shoes (Louboutin with 12cm heels, CBs, or loafers which are very trendy in Milan), a cocktail dress or a masculine look with a white shirt and tuxedo jacket. Complete the look with a 2:55 Chanel bag, some mascara and a little blush.”

THE BIGGEST EVENING LOOK TRENDS TO GO TO THE RESTAURANT

DS:
“A dress with a cashmere cardigan, big pieces of jewellery, a pair of eccentric shoes. Milanese women are not very daring when it comes to fashion. And they don't like being noticed.”

NT: “A black outfit, a pair of chandelier earrings and a jewelled clutch bag.”

FT:
“A mini skirt and a short jacket.”

FET: “A trapeze-shaped dress paired with beautiful jewels and an elegant pair of heels. Don’t forget to complete the look with a couture or chic coat (the classic Prada one in black or blue or the iconic Burberry trench coat).”


THE BIGGEST EVENING LOOK TRENDS TO GO OUT CLUBBING

DS: “A pair of jeans, very high heels, a shiny or glittery T-shirt and perfect makeup.”

NT: “Something very shiny, either sparkles or rhinestones but never overdo it.”

FT:
“One thing: hippie, boho chic details.”

FET:
“Your favourite little dress with glitter high heels or skinny jeans with a band T-shirt and Jimmy Choo high heels. It depends on the club and the party you’re going to.”


THE BIGGEST FASHION DON’TS


DS: “Not too short, not too tight, not too show-off, (cf: Berlusconi's over the top look and la "velina"). This is cheesy.”

NT: “Flip flops in the city.”

BT: “Skirts and trousers that are considered inelegant and unflattering: even tall and thin women shouldn't wear them.”

FT:
“Glitters.”

FET:
“To be truly chic you should avoid wearing anything with a logo. You shouldn't show your figure too much either (no push-up bras, no clothes that are too small or in a stretch material). It is always best to choose the right fit.”
