Fashion Month will soon be coming to a close, but to be honest we’re still thinking about all the gorgeous street style moments we spotted during Milan Fashion Week. Fashion editors, influencers and buyers were all dressed to the nines, showing off the best ways to rock this spring’s top trends, including a few up-and-coming styles that might just prove to be the next best thing. Here, four micro trends we noticed popping up all over Milan to shop and wear now before everyone else catches on.

6 Micro Trends We Spotted During London Fashion Week (from Faux Fur to Colorful Suits)

1. Leather Trench Coats

There were lots of leather pieces on display in Milan this month, but among the expected sea of leather pants and moto jackets we also spotted a surprising number of leather trenches. There were plenty of classic black and brown styles, but also bolder picks, like bright yellow and even metallic gold. But in every case, these street style stars let their maxi-length jackets steal the show, pairing them with minimal accessories and other wardrobe basics in neutral hues.

2. Skirt Sets

These duos aren’t quite skirt suits, but they do still have an elevated workwear vibe we really dig. Think outside the traditional blazer-and-pencil skirt combination and instead embrace bomber jackets with A-line silhouettes, twill shackets with ‘90s-inspired midis or even leather sets.

3. Visible Socks

Perhaps the most unexpected trend to come out of Milan is that of wearing tall socks with loafers, flats and even slingback heels. Luckily, this is also a trend you likely don’t need to spend any money to try for yourself. If you’re feeling a bit shy about this dorky-chic look, opt for a shoe and a sock in similar colors (like dark brown loafers with black socks). But for the bold among us, have fun mixing contrasting hues to really draw attention to the trend.

4. Baby Blue and Baby Pink

Pastels will never not be in for spring, but something about the current iterations of baby blue and baby pink are giving us major Y2K throwback vibes. Those two shades were likely the top color trends of the early aughts, and the way Milan’s streetstyle stars were rocking them—usually in the form of a patent-leather accessory or vintage-looking handbag—definitely played into those nostalgic vibes. Try mixing a pink or blue shoulder bag, belt or even platform clogs in with your favorite wardrobe staples. (Even better if you can get both blue and pink into one outfit.)
