Milan’s Street Style Stars Prove Sandal Season Isn’t Over (Yet)
There’s a very short and sweet part of the transitional season when you can wear lovely pairings like sweaters and shorts or jackets and sandals—weather permitting, of course. It’s the type of ensemble Los Angeles locals are lucky enough to don for much of the year. But for the rest of us who don’t call Southern California home, the ideal fall forecast gives us the opportunity to combine the best of our summer and fall wardrobes.
This past week in Milan, showgoers embraced perfect temps in the low 70s and sunny skies, and squeezed out a few extra days of sandal season. Chunky knits and checked trousers were paired with heeled sandals, as were brown leather trousers and blazers. Fuzzy mohair cardigans, midi skirts, velvet jackets, and head-to-toe tailoring could all be seen sported alongside open-toe shoes. The verdict? Sandal season isn’t over just yet.
Come chillier temps, all these looks will pair wonderfully with a knee-high boot or ballet flat, but in the meantime, do as the Milan Fashion Week street style set do and take the opportunity to wear sandals with other classic fall staples.
