While the designers parade their new collections on the runway at Milan Fashion Week AW 2015/16, the style set are out on the street walking in a show of their own. From winter's cult shade to the era we will all be wearing, I've rounded up my favourite street moments so far from this week's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Milan.
STREET TRENDS, WITH LOVE FROM MILAN
Shades of grey: Camel might well be the colour for autumn, but grey is enjoying a moment as the go-to tran-seasonal shade. Those wary of grey palettes should take cue from the style mavens on the street by mixing grey with baby blue or black pieces. The head-to-toe grey look was also spotted earlier this week in Berlin at the Marc Cain show, with Katie Holmes showing her support for the label donned in a grey off-the-runway ensemble.
Oversized Outerwear: This season's outerwear trend is about chic oversized silhouettes that take cue from boy-meets-girl-inspired silhouettes. The key to mastering this trend? Pair your coat with polished pieces. Take it to cool-girl territory with a statement sweatshirt or textured scarf.
'70s Inspired: Both the boho-hippy-esque and the more sleek, tailored side of the 1970s were seen on the streets of Milan. The flared pant will have its moment, while surprisingly, the burgundy/ brick shade is also on-trend- think Jennifer Aniston's crimson Gucci trouser suit at the Critics' Choice Awards last week.
Monochrome: The classic combination of black and white still deserves a place in our wardrobes this season. Like that friend you will never phase out of your life, monochrome is one of the easier trends to master in the complicated world of fashion. If you're looking to add interest to your outfit, try a pop of pink or coral lipstick.
