With the close of Milan Fashion Week, Savoir Flair is taking a moment or two to reflect on the many micro trends that emerged and to share the five that made the biggest impact at the shows. From grandpa-inspired sweater vests to the welcome return of leggings (gasp), these are the five essentials that should be in your wardrobe come spring next year – according to the Italians at least.

Grandpa Vests

The heavy hitters at Milan Fashion Week, Prada and Gucci included, turned to menswear to rediscover sweater vests. Boxy and sleeveless, these made for great layering pieces over shirtdresses and button-down shirts.

Puffed Sleeves

Puffed sleeves are replacing XXL sleeves for Spring/Summer 2017. Italian brands like Dolce & Gabbana and Dsquared2 churned out opulent versions reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Remixed Parkas

Parkas were reworked by designers at MSGM and Sportmax into beautiful dresses for a night out on the town.

Leggings

It’s time to welcome an old friend back into our closets. Leggings have been made cool once again, this time with an added femme-fatale touch thanks to the likes of Versace and Max Mara.

Net Dresses

Net-like dresses caught our attention at Milan Fashion Week as models at the MSGM and N°21 shows descended onto the runway in different versions of the look, from embellished to casual and goth-like.
