Milan fashion week: what I wore

I’m back for a couple of days before I head off to Paris with the InStyle team (yay!) and Milan was a blast. It’s such a glamorous city that I always feel like I have to up my game with my outfits – there’s lots of heels and fur and I don’t wear either – but by the end of my stay I’d relaxed back into jeans. Here’s what I wore (and a bit of what I saw…)

Day 1
Thankfully I had time to change out of my ‘travelling outfit’ (jeans, no make-up) before we headed to see Gucci. Which was, by the way, LOVELY.

Sheepskin gilet, Celtic & Co; top, Bimba y Lola; skirt, Mint Velvet; bag, Milli Millu; socks, & Other Stories; boots, Nicholas Kirkwood

Day 2
It was warm enough for no jacket! Which got me very excited about spring….

Leather top, Iris & Ink; jumper, Ganni; skirt, Warehouse; bag, Paule Ka; shoes, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen

I wasn’t alone in my flats at the shows. Here are a few I spotted outside the Just Cavalli show. Love the tartan socks and those snazzy trainers are Chanel. #shoeenvy

Day 3
New discovery – these Paige blacker than black high rise skinny jeans are perfect for a tomboy that needs to look smart! Oh, and I saw these tiles in a shop and nipped in to take this picture but it was closed and they asked me to leave. That’s dedication for you…

Top, Marni; jeans, Paige; bag, Lulu Guinness; boots, Nicholas Kirkwood

Did you know there are stars all over the floors of Milan? Always look down (and up – it’s the home of some pretty amazing ceiling too)!

Day 4
I’d been in Milan long enough to relax into trainers by this point. I bumped into a couple of street style photographers I know and they were both wearing Stan Smiths. I’m more of a Superstars girl myself.

Coat, Paul Smith; top, Prada; skirt, Mint Velvet; bag, Milli Millu; trainers, adidas

We visited the Prada showroom to get a closer look at the AMAZING collection. These rubber sole shoes are incredible. Can you tell how excited I am to hold one in my hand?! My favourites are the burgundy and grey pair. Totally weird but totally wonderful.

Day 5
I’m a bit of a Marni fan so I was excited about my last day in Milan. You always see such well dressed people attending the show, as well as walking in it.

Right, I need to pack for Paris!!
