Fashion mecca Milan gives us a masterclass in how to dress for Fashion Month. Buckle up your trench coats, ladies, you're in for a treat!
The AW15 runways are awash with Italian finery, but as usual, it’s those stylish showgoers who are the first to feed our fashion-hungry souls. Who needs a Prada invite when super-chic style inspo is but a play button away… Hit it!
1. Elisa Nalin, Stylist
How to nail the sports luxe trend in one go? Simple – just throw on a statement bomber. It’s a mini trend that we’ve seen bubbling on the fashion week streets this season, first in London and now in Milan. Still a key piece for summer, the bomber jacket is an easy update to throw on and add some fun to your look. For a confident but comfortable outfit, how cosy do those oversized culottes look? It’s the perfect combo to run around the shows in. Teamed with Adidas trainers, they pull together the whole sporty vibe.
Bomber Jacket: Filles A Papa
Cross-body bag: Gianlisa

Elvira gives us a lesson in trench dressing.
a) Beg, borrow or steal a fab coat. Burberry is her coat of choice, obvs. FYI, high-street fashion brand Finery London also has a fine line in trench coats, or try having a scout around in AllSaints.
b) Don’t play it safe, embrace colour. Berry shades are where it’s at this winter, but will also work come spring. Note how Elvia’s added a high heel with just the right amount of toe cleavage at the front, extra style points coming your way Elvira.
Trench, scarf: Burberry
Shoes: Jimmy Choo

Proving that the folksy vibe with its embroidery and colourful detail doesn’t have to be girly. First things first, the Valentino coat… can we just appreciate the beauty of this coat, please? Stop and pause that video if you haven’t already! Wow.
Teaming with block-colour separates and a pair of chunky trainers gives this an understated tomboy feel. Who said folk has to be full of boho vibes? Tamu shows us how the cool kids are doing it. Finally a insider tip for keeping warm while out and about all fashion month was the Uniqlo Heat Tech roll neck. We hear ya, Tamu. Boom.
Top: Uniqlo Heat Tech roll neck
