5 Things We Learned from Milan Fashion Week Street Style

Just when you thought the Internet couldn’t handle much much street style another batch of the stuff swarms our timelines. London kicked things off a fortnight ago, then it was on to Florence for the Pitti Uomo trade show, which was quickly followed by Milan Men’s Fashion Week.

And while those avid fashion fans out there have probably since forgotten about Milan and homed in on Paris instead, we thought we’d highlight the plethora of great looks we saw there before we turn our attention to the French capital.

Whether it was the endless examples of warm weather monochrome or further evidence of the all-blue tonal trend we’ve pulled together five key looks we couldn’t help but notice, as well as how you, too, can achieve them, too, with pieces from THE IDLE MAN.

Milano Monochrome

It’s probably about 100° in Milan right now, but some how these guys manage to stay looking cool in all senses of the word. Granted, it’s not the easiest thing to crack, but as long as you lean more towards the white side of the colour spectrum rather than black, there’s no reason why you can’t remain sweat free and looking sleek at same time.

No-Nonsense Neutrals

Like the guys before, this attendee shows little sign of perspiration despite opting to wear a light-weight coat in the sweltering Milan heat. But with carefully rolled-up sleeves, loose-fitting trousers and an overall neutral colour palette he remains looking elegant yet relaxed.

Endless Indigo

Naturally, blue is the go-to colour for most guys thanks to it’s easy-to-wear nature and it’s limitless versatility. But one thing we can’t ignore is how good it looks when various shades are combined in one look. It’s cooling, it’s effortless and in our books it’s always a win.

Understated Short Sleeves

Short sleeved shirts often get a lot of stick as do patterned ones, so naturally when you combine the two elements there’s a high risk of things going tits up. If, however, you keep things simple and opt for a tailored fit, like this guy has done here, there’s absolutely no reason why things should go wrong.

Everlasting Logos

Less of a trend and more of a perennial characteristic of menswear, but the most recent batch of street style shots have highlighted the fact that old school streetwear logos have definitely seen a resurgence in recent seasons and one we hope sticks around for a little while longer.
