5 Milan Fashion Week Trends That Are Actually Wearable (& So Hot)



After two years of virtual shows, fashion month came back with a bang! From the iconic supermodel reunions to the biggest designer collaboration of all time, we’ll be feasting off this content for years to come. While New York and London Fashion Week undoubtedly slayed, there’s no denying that Milan Fashion Week stole the show… One word: Fendace.

Of course, we also have to take a minute (or ten) to talk about the beauty looks. While the beauty looks were major, they were also surprisingly wearable, so you can bet we’ll be experimenting with these trends for the next few months, and you should too…

1. The Versace Wing

Last season, both on the runway and in their campaign, Versace showcased a stunning exaggerated geometric wing in electric blue and pink hues created by the legend that is Dame Pat McGrath. Naturally, the world fell in love, and we saw the look recreated and reinterpreted all over social media.

For this season’s MFW, Versace brought back the fierce eye makeup look – with a star-studded lineup featuring pop girl sensation Dua Lipa – that we’re naming the Versace Wing. However, as you’d expect, they’ve elevated the game with a two-dimensional layered wing. Needless to say, we’re obsessed and we expect this to be the next big trend.

2. Face and Body Glitter

Just when we thought Y2K fever couldn’t get any higher, Blumarine showcased the ultimate 2000s collection with headscarves, lip gloss, and body glitter. Yes, you read that correctly; chunky hair and body glitter are making a comeback.

Consider this style your go-to party look, pending for the holiday season.

3. Poker Straight Hair

If Milan Fashion Week is anything to go by, poker-straight locks are THE hairstyle to play with RN. From Naomi strutting down the runway with ironed-out locks at the Fendace show to Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid debuting XXL locks at Versace, polished tresses were seen time and time again. And TBH, we’re so here for the minimal look: it’s sleek, sexy, and low maintenance.

If you don’t have naturally long hair, don’t sweat it, just grab some XXL extensions. It’s the easiest way to recreate the style in seconds. Not experienced with extensions? Check out our extension guide.

4. Embellished Braids

We’re obsessed with braids in all their forms, whether it’s knotless box braids, intricate twists, or even French. However, this season it’s all about going the extra mile and accenting your braids with embellishment, from beads to ribbons. On the runway at Moschino, the models donned braids covered in colorful beads, while at Bronx & Banco and Christian Siriano, models’ braids were woven with ribbon. Either way, get creative.

We can’t get over this look… We need to see it from all angles!

5. Baby Bangs

There’s a new cool-girl haircut in town, and we totally didn’t see it coming! However, a handful of our fave celebs have backed the trend, and we’re low-key obsessed. From Meg Fox to Lady Gaga, and Y2K it-girls Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa, they’ve all been donning cropped micro bangs while putting their own flavor on the hairstyle.

While this wasn’t a look displayed on the MFW runway per se, we’ve seen it all over the FROW, in recently unveiled campaigns, and on the red carpet over the past month. Plus, there’s something very Italian cool-girl about the look, especially when styled with a headscarf like Dua. Versace daaaarling.

There’s no denying it’s a high-maintenance hairstyle, so before you take the plunge, you could always trial the look with a faux-bang, like Megan Fox at the Met Gala.
