With the beginning of the fall season comes my absolute favorite time of the year… Fashion Month! Fall Fashion month 2017 was composed of four fashion-filled weeks in which renown designers displayed their latest collections for Spring 2018. Fashion month started off in NYC, followed in London, then in Milan and ended in Paris. Fashion month is so extremely exciting because not only is it filled with incredible street style and fashion icons, it gives us fashion lovers a sneak peak of the trends to come. For years I have been live streaming my favorite shows and keeping up to date with all of the excitement, while dreaming that one day I would be lucky enough to actually attend a show.
Because I am spending this semester studying abroad in Florence, Italy, I finally go the chance to attend a fashion week in quite possibly my new favorite city in the world–Milan. Being in Milan during fashion week was a dream come true to say the least. In support of the ongoing off-the-shoulder tend, I wore my skin-tight long-sleeved black off-the-shoulder dress from LF. I absolutely ADORE this dress and thought it was the perfect piece to wear to one of the most fashionable cities in the world because you can never go wrong with a LBD 😉 A trend that I have been ~obsessed~ with this season is tinted glasses. Because of this, I wore my yellow tinted ones! Big name designers such as Dior have put out countless designs of tinted glasses this season; however, for an affordable pair such as the ones I’m wearing, check out Forever 21. To accessorize, I paired my gold dangle choker with some black pom-pom statement earrings from Zara. I’ve been very into the statement earrings trend recently, so when I spotted these earrings at the Zara in Florence, I knew they would be the perfect accessory for Milan Fashion Week. I finished my look off with my go-to cross body bag and some chic suede TOMS mules.
Of course the most important part of fashion week is the shows that take place during. We visited Milan on a Friday, the day of the iconic Versace show. Of course, Versace is one of the major shows of the season. Because I was in Milan during it, I had to take full advantage and locate the show’s venue. En route to the location of the Versace show, we saw countless of stylish invitees making their way to the pre-show Vogue event. This environment was super exhilarating and I loved every second of it. Of course it is my dream to one day be invited to an event like this, so in my second to last picture you can see Jess and I walking down towards the event pretending like we were part of the action 😉 Hey a girl can dream right?! To add, prior to the actual start of the Vogue event, we were let backstage to peek around and it was beyond amazing!
Anyways, it was such an incredible experience being in Milan during fashion week and I loved every second of it!
