One of the major fashion capitals of the world – and one of the Big Four of Fashion Week – Milan is known for its sexy and glamorous vibe. This former industrial city is a hotspot where progressive artisans and craftsmen gather. Dress to be noticed, and then take a snapshot for your Instagram story against the exquisite backdrop of museums and historical architecture. While you’re there, go shopping at Via della Spiga, nurse a glass of Prosecco at Cova Ristorante, or have a frothy cappuccino while people-watching at Piazza del Duomo.
To epitomise Milanese style is to pull off seductive, show-stopping looks with dazzling star quality.
These studied ensembles are more covered up, but still oh-so-sexy.
Editor and former model Giovanna Battaglia embodies the sexy street-style look with her high-glam, modern va-va-voom style.
Spotting an Italian on the street-style circuit is easy. That’s because said Italian is most likely the first to be noticed, and the top choice for a sartorial subject in every style paparazzi’s lenses.
