The 80’s makes a casual yet luxurious comeback with the 1980’s leisure trend. The era of the 1980’s pays homage to a sensual and leisurely theme, with the use of luxurious fabrics and relaxed tailoring creating soft silhouettes. With a nod to the country club aesthetic, wealthy leisure is key with off-duty weekend vibes and dressing down transforming occasion wear. Sunglasses are a key accessory for this trend, matched with a suit to create a laid-back vibe. Street style at Milan Fashion Week has been teeming with relaxed suits, open collar shirts and loose tailoring.

On the streets of Milan, bold shirts are here and ready to make a statement with their bright prints and vibrant colour palettes. Relaxed tailoring allows the print to flow and sit centre stage with an oversized silhouette. Some of our favourite looks both on on the runway and the pavements involve bold shirts paired with a clashing printed accessory and neutral trousers. Summer 2018 has taught us to be brave with our prints, embracing a brash aesthetic and colour clashes within our everyday wardrobes.

Matching sets and co-ords are dominating both the catwalk and streets this season, but this time it’s men who are embracing this fun trend. Enjoy limitless creativity with this look – some of our favourites from Milan Fashion Week are a relaxed double denim suit styled with a red bag for a pop of colour and clashing your co-ord set with a printed top for extra fun. A loose linen set in a primary colour such as yellow portrays a laid-back look while exuding effortless style.

80’s nostalgia was prevalent on the streets of Milan this Fashion Week with the reintroduction of the trendy boiler suit. Heavy colourways have been ditched and replaced with neutrals for a pleasing soft aesthetic. Our favourite look for this trend is styling with a bright neck tie for a pop of colour, introducing a playful twist on an old schoolboy-inspired outfit.
