Guide to the
Most Stylish Cities

fashion editor of

City: Milan, Italy
Trend:   Black with a Splash of Color
Season: Winter 2008/9

Wearing all black may be the standard in Paris and New York, but not in Milan.

A main piece of the outfit, such as a dress, coat, or trousers, in a solid bright color takes an otherwise drab ensemble to the next level. Black no longer has to be boring.

During the day, bright jewelry and accessories—scarves, handbags, or belts—with a black cardigan is the perfect option to look casually stylish.

For the more sophisticated evenings, a jewel-toned dress in emerald green or deep purple looks best when paired with a sleek black blazer or coat.

Therefore, there are many ways to wear this trend and experimenting with different colorful pieces is the key.
