UpscaleHype's Top Looks from the Milan 2011 S/S Fashion Week

Milan S/S 2011 Fashion week was just amongst us, and these are a few of the looks I’m interested in seeing make it from the runway to my everyday style. So out of these four looks which one do you like best?

Plucked from the runway this first look is from the Burberry S/S 2011 Collection, and even though Burberry had several outstanding pieces this one caught my eye. Ultimately, it came down to the loud effects of the mustard yellow trench layered over the white tank and accentuated with the black pants and sandals. (Which I would substitute with a pair of boots or sneakers)

This look is from the Dolce & Gabanna Spring 2011 Collection, and it screams Summer and Spring. The color and texture of the sweater is what sets off this look and serves as the base for the entire fit. Once that was established everything fell in line perfectly. The grey belt separates the top from the bottom half allowing for the frayed white linen pants and the sneakers to bring it all together.

This look is from the Gucci S/S 2011 Collection and defines what it means to look nice, sharp, and clean. I love the color and the fit of the blazer, but just not to fond of the Gucci logo illustrations covering it. (Great pieces are not to be broadcasted but yet inquired about) The addition of the black vertically striped v-neck along with the pants tailored just enough shows off the suede driver.

Straight from the Trussardi 1911 Spring 2011 Collection, this outfit is all about being bold and showcasing attitude. For many men leopard print is usually avoided because of how dominant it has been in women’s fashion. So for the fearless, leopard print if executed well shows you have confidence and sense of style. These are characteristics that would make any man irresistible. What I like most about this look is how the leopard print is toned down by a variation of tan and black avoiding a matching disaster.
