Trendspotting: Milan Fashion Week AW20
Fashion week looks can sometimes feel a little bit daunting when it comes to recreating the runway styles, and as much as we love to look in awe at the shiny, new, larger-than-life designs, some of them can feel slightly too extravagant for a trip to the shops.
With Milan Fashion week coming to a close, we have selected a few, top trends from some of our favourite shows- breaking down some key styles so that you can get ahead of the game.

In keeping with the obvious theme of the autumn/ winter chills, a lot of designers have been keeping it cosy with an abundance of knitwear pieces on show this past week. From dresses and jumpers to bags and shoes, the plush, winter luxury has been flaunted in bright, patterned ensembles and neutral-toned creations alike.
While some designers opted to use it as an accent piece, a nod to a traditional winter medium, Dolce&Gabbana have created some snuggly, oversized knits. Here's hoping that trend is here to stay.

Another style staple that we have spotted appearing across the runways is the longline coat. With many a designer turning to this sophisticated piece to complete their looks, it’s clear that keeping warm in the chillier months may be leaning towards a sleeker, more streamlined feel this year.
Dressed up or dressed down, belted or buttoned, this item is definitely one to think about adding to your repertoire. Whether it be workwear, date-night attire or dog-walking couture, we're envisaging effortless class in soft, wool-blend jackets draped over shoulders.

Alongside Moschino and Versace's to-be-expected pops of vivid brights, warm umbers and brown tones seem to be coming in big, and it’s these autumnal colours which we recommend keeping a close eye on. With flashes of warm ochre and deep burgundy, the week was heavy on red and orange shades, whilst also allowing for a lot of sandy nudes and of course, plenty of the ever-wearable black, white and grey.
