The #1 Trend You'll Want to Copy From Milan Fashion Week

There were many trends Milan Fashion Week's top designers didn't agree on: Some were still exploring the 1980s (Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini), others went back to the '70s (Marni), and some delved a few decades further to channel 1950s pinups (Prada). The eclecticism of Gucci's granny-takes-a-trip charge still rumbles on—both inside and outside of this trendsetting house—but there were also plenty of palette cleansers on the agenda. See Salvatore Ferragamo for neutral, grown-up pieces or Bottega Veneta for ultimate power dressing.

There's one key thing that the Milano fashion crowd can be united upon, and that is bucking the current mood for oversize, super-baggy streetwear, and moving towards more flattering, slimming and traditionally sculpted lines instead. Many of the runway shows were a celebration of real women, so this is not body-con for only the most honed and toned. Instead, these visionaries noted the power and brilliance of a woman's natural curves and used clever pattern-cutting skills to create the kind of sheath dresses and waist-nipping skirts and trousers that celebrate femininity in all its unashamed feather-trimmed, shimmying glory.

If you've been feeling that fashion's current mood really isn't in line with your personal style, then things are looking up. Keep reading to see and shop the ultra-flattering pieces MFW designers have to offer.
