Street style Milan seems to bring out every style maven and fashionista’s creative and zany sides (or alter egos even). Exuberance and flamboyance is seemingly the sartorial dress code of choice, and it is a style in which they never dare shy away from. Something which I like to believe is simply the norm in Milan. An excitement and vitality in fashion always omnipresent as they continue about their regular routine in everyday life. Things like lame fabric and sky high stilettos for quick grocery runs, obviously, no doubt as standard. Same as the humble action of stirring pasta sauce in a flouncy Dolce & Gabbana print skirt or suited up in Versace for men. Yes, completely standard kitchen behaviour. One that is as essential as the traditional apron.
When I envision or contemplate street style Milan, it is something which is always so carefree and undeniably far removed from what I consider to be the norm. Something which is beyond classic tailoring and ensembles featuring a range of pitch black hues, something which is the standard uniform of Melbournian’s in Australia. Street style Milano is that je ne sais quoi that I always hope to discover when trawling through countless street style photography albums. It is a celebration of fashion, of style, of fabrics and colour. And it truly is an expression of ones sense of self. And I have no trouble in admitting that I simply adore living vicariously through all this fashionable pomp and palaver.
