The top 5 Milan Fashion Week trends are actually wearable

Milan Fashion Week had many memorable moments. From Donatella Versace’s ode to her brother, Gianni, in an epic supermodel salute, to Alessandro Michele’s convoluted yet hypnotizing world of Gucci, the fashion collections at Milan were at times beautiful, strange, and incredibly exciting.

And most surprisingly, the hottest trends were wearable, starting with leather — in the form of jumpsuits, skirts, dresses, trousers, and accessories, all spotted throughout MFW, from Fendi to Gucci.

Pop graphics, like those popularized by Andy Warhol and used by Gianni Versace in 1993, were reimagined in Donatella’s tribute collection to her late brother. Miuccia Prada’s show embraced womanhood and featured comic-book illustrations that were screen-printed onto her clothes, displayed within a venue surrounded by the work of established female comic-book artists.

But one trend that you can actually try today is pajamas as ready-to-wear. PJ sets in bright, colorful prints were on various runways, from Emilio Pucci to Etro and Blumarine. In fact, a few fashion editors forecasted the trend by stepping out to shows in their own pajama sets.

Leather Forever

Graphic Art

Pop-art prints made their way onto skirts, cardigans, jackets, and even handbags and boots. It’s a trend clearly not for the low-key, black-and-white wearing minimalist. (Photo: ImaxTree, Art: Quinn Lemmers for Yahoo Lifestyle)

Pajama Party

Great news for lazy-girl dressers: Pajamas are no longer relegated to the bedroom. This once nighttime apparel can now be worn outdoors — on a date, while shopping, running errands, and, if you so dare, even to the workplace. (Photo: ImaxTree, Art: Quinn Lemmers for Yahoo Lifestyle)
