Cargo pockets, wedge footwear, denim and feminine fabrics like satin and sheer chiffon dominated the looks at the Fall 2023 shows.
Milan Fashion Week is here and the street style looks we’re seeing outside the Fall 2023 ready-to-wear shows are a reliable melange of fashion-forward, polished — and a little bit over the top. A quick glance through snaps of the stylish show-goers and several trends were immediately obvious. The Fall 2023 Milan Fashion Week street style uniform includes cargo pockets, seen on everything from wide-leg trousers to mini-skirts. Wedge boots, especially colourful, bulbous confections, are seemingly a prerequisite to walk Milan’s charming streets. Feminine fabrics like sheer, flouncy chiffon and shiny satin are preferred. Denim must be worn head to toe, and special points for low-rise silhouettes, bleached-out treatments and lots of distressing (Y2K, baby!). Also, it appears that the Diesel renaissance is still going strong with the Italian brand’s wares figuring heavily into show-goers’ attire.
From chic and refined to daring and outré, the street style modelled by Milan’s fashion chameleons is full of outfit inspiration. Here are some of our favourite Milan street style looks from Milan Fashion Week Fall 2023.
