Milan Fashion Week is always exciting, this year delivering some of the vivacious spring 2019 fashion trends. This Fashion Week brought us a lot of fun, casual designs, with tons of different kinds of prints in fun and bright colors. Both pastels and animal prints are here to stay, as they made the cut into the spring 2019 fashion trends from Milan Fashion Week.
#1. Busy Prints
It’s time to toss your solids, because the spring 2019 fashion trends from Milan Fashion Week included a lot of bold and busy prints. At Versace, Marni, and Roberto Cavalli, we saw all kinds of patterns mixed together in one outfit, while at Prada, and Moschino, print-heavy looks were styled to match carefully.
#2. Solid Pastels
You haven’t tossed your solids yet? In that case, you can keep some of your pastels, since these did make the cut in the spring 2018 fashion trends, both in Milan and London. Loose and oversized monochrome outfits were eye-catching at Calcaterra, Jil Sander, Alberta Ferretti, and Erika Cavallini, while pastel dresses were airy and beautiful at Missoni, Blumarine, and Prada.
#3. Animal Prints
Perhaps the most ubiquitous of the spring 2019 trends is the animal print, which made an appearance last season as well, and has been spotted at most of the fashion weeks. Designers as diverse as Roberto Cavalli, Simonetta Ravizza, and Tod’s all made use of animal prints. Special shout-out goes to Dolce & Gabbanna, where animal print was taken literally, with a gorgeous dress covered in a print of ducks, donkeys, and roosters.
#4. Polka Dots
Milan Fashion Week gave us one of the cutest retro spring 2019 print trends: polka dots. We saw them paired with waist-hugging dresses or coats at Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, and Max Mara. Polka dots were a little wilder and modern at Marni, and Giorgio Armani.
#5. Jewels and Sequins
Shine is in for the spring 2019 trends, with jewels and sequins reflecting light on many of Milan’s runways. We saw glittering embellishments attached in delicate patterns on garments at Roberto Cavalli, and Blumarine, while offerings were more ostentatious at Dolce & Gabbanna, and Philipp Plein. Other brands embracing the bling included Sportmax, and Versace.
#6. Draped Sheath Dresses
There are few things I like more than wearing an outfit that feels like pajamas or beach-wear, and the gorgeous draped sheath dresses that were part of the spring 2019 trends from Milan Fashion Week seem to me to fit the bill. We saw gorgeous draped sheet dresses at Erika Cavallini, Marni, and Etro.
Fishnets were part of the spring 2019 fashion trends from Milan Fashion Week and London, so you should definitely pay attention, especially if you have a goth or punk streak in you. Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Calcaterra layered fishnet dresses, while at Armani, and Etro, fishnet was used to craft accessories like hats and bags.
#8. At the Fringe
Fringe is one of the more fun ways of embellishing a dress, since it flows as you move and adds unique texture to a dress, skirt, or jacket. Fringe lined the bottom of the dresses at Aigner, and basically made up a full dress at Calcaterra. It was also used for the details on the jackets and bags at Simonetta Ravizza.
#9. Rain, Rain, Stay Away!
Raincoats made of plastic were one of the more useful spring 2019 fashion trends, as rain showers are a clear risk in spring. Our favorite long rain jackets were worn on the runways of Anteprima, Fendi, Fila, and Agnona, while some really cute waist- and hip-length jackets were spotted at GCDS, and Versace.
#10. Bermuda Shorts
The perfect length for a warm day, especially if you don’t want to show too much skin, is the bermuda short that ends just above the knee. These tight and stylish shorts were glimpsed as part of the spring 2019 fashion trends from Milan Fashion Week on the runways of Prada, MGSM, and Fendi.
